Best/Worst players on wind

Who loves to play on wind and who hates it?

Is there any "Tommy Haas" on WTA?

Re: Best/Worst players on wind

worse is definitely Safina

She was horrible at Charleston 2007 final, USO 2008 SF and all her Doha matches last year

Yes.

Conchita Martinez and Chris Evert were "masters" of the elements.
Justine was awful in the wind.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Best/Worst players on wind

Dementieva usually falls apart in the wind. Although sometimes she'll play well, just to keep all her fans completely

Poor Amelie...

Its true tho, she falls apart in the wind.

Cant actually think of too many players that 'like' to play in the wind... why would they?! lol

Thanks for the memories

Re: Best/Worst players on wind

Serena is pretty good in the wind
I guess it's because she practices a lot in Miami

She tends to play a more conservative tennis in the wind
