Who (has or had) the best "2nd career"

Note: I deliberately omitted Jen, since her return was her "main career". And Monica, as hers (sadly) wasn't the typical "bored retired player unretires" of course.

Thanks to the Adminimod who fixed my typo in the poll as requested.

Re: Who (has or had) the best "2nd career"

Martina Muller of course, she has the most 2nd career from all players and I hope she will have also 3rd

And then maybe Kim...won a grandslam right after her comeback

Re: Who (has or had) the best "2nd career"

Right now its Kim because she doubled her slam total.
I dont know when Navratilova had a 2nd career, at 50?

Re: Who (has or had) the best "2nd career"

Kim did win that Slam (and Miami), but since then where has she been? I'd say, Venus (post-2005 Wimbledon win) or even Serena, post-knee surgery. That's a lazy answer, I know. But Maria's is stalled, Justine's is stalled, Hingis' is nipped in the bud, Sesil no, Navratilova (?) not aware of her 2nd career, Lindsay nipped by babymaker, Kimiko's has been a long, hard slog, but I don't know where it is going. So I guess maybe Kimiko and Kim.

I don't think you understand the topic. Venus never retired. Maria never retired...

The notion of "2nd career" is ridiculous. It's something that Henin keeps saying in her press conferences and each time I

You quit and then came back. ONE career,

agreed. Kimiko had two careers. So did Martina.

Some other players just "took a break."

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Now don't be picky. Like in the NFL, Michael Vick is in his "2nd career". Or if your guy Big Ben ever serves a couple of years for rape and returns to the league, that would be a 2nd career too.

BTW, I don't know what Serena is doing named ITT, as she (and Venus) never retired; if being out injured for months triggered a new career, Kim would be on her 3rd now. Anyhow, I think Nikki V's 2nd will start next year, it should be interesting.
