Top Ten or Best "Half-Careers"
I came across the idea for this topic after searching Monica Seles. I noticed that, obviously, Monica's career can be divided into two parts - pre-stabbing and post-stabbing. What she accomplished after the stabbing is underrated, in my opinion, as she won a slew of titles, including a Grand Slam, and other notable results.
Then I got to thinking about other players who have had serious injuries and still played some great tennis. Venus Williams' 2003 abdominal injury, Serena's 2003 knee injury, Justine Henin's 2004 virus, Kim's wrist problems in 2004, Davenport's six months off in 2002, Hingis, as well. I'm sure other players can be added to the list.
So, this topic is to discuss the "half careers" of these players who have suffered serious injuries or illnesses, but even afterward, their lesser results would still be considered quite incredible.
And, if you want, you can make a "best" or "top ten" list with the best half-careers. Ie. Monica Seles' 1996-2003 is better than, let's say, Clijster's total career or what not.
