Who is the best left-handed WTA player ever?

When it comes to left-handed WTA player,Patty Schnyder firstly emerges in my mind,and she is a pretty good player for me.Considering I know little about women's tennis before 2000,I think I must have missed some greater left-handed players,so,who is the best left-handed player do you think?

Martina, of course. Seles isn't far behind, IMO.

Monica Seles
Lindsay Davenport
Kim Clijsters
Shino Tsurubuchi

You really do know very very little about pre-2000.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Yes,I must admit that I started a very stpid thread.I really don't know they are left-handed.I have never watched them playing.The reason that made me start to watch tennis is the Williams Sisters,about in 2002,before 2002,I even don't know there is a sport called tennis.Because,no famous chinese player,so basically no media attentions in China and no matches showed on TV.But the williams sisters were two very huge names to inspire many young people in China back then,I was one of these and then stated to follow tennis.

Seles doesn't count since she was double handed.

Double handers are neither left or right when it comes to a racquet imo.

Okey,before we getting a conclusion who is the best,one thing now is clear:it's definitely not Patty Schnyder.
