15 years so between 1994-2008
most notable players between that period-

1)serena- 8 grandslams and held all 4 slams at once, 31 titles [inc gs]
2)steffi- 8 grandslams,29 titles [inc gs]

Re: Best Austrian Female Tennis Player in the last fifteen years?

Realistically Schett would get the edge but I voted for Barbara Paulus, because a) I had a little bit of a crush on her growing up and b) she was a real battler and bounced back from a slew of nasty injuries time and time again. I admire that. To have made the top 10 with her relatively limited ability and despite all the injuries says masses about her character. She also came across as being a really sweet down to earth girl.

Barbara Schwartz, injury free, would be a TOP 20 player, my vote goes to her

Weisner - more longevity, tho poor Paulus had so many injuries.
Judith was a finalist at Key Biscayne but just didn't have a big weapon and never got truly in-shape. Tough player nonethless!

There's more to life than just being happy.
