Re: Players won Grand Slams but still underachieved
Novotna. When you beat your biggest nemesis and make the final of a slam (like Jana did when she beat Graf in the quarters of 1991 Australian), you would think that would be enough incentive to come back every year.
She didn't and it definitely cost her a realistic shot at the number one ranking in 1998.
I think she might have been able to sneak a slam in the three years she missed the AO or at least get to another final.
