Re: 15 Biggest Names of 2000/2011. WTA

BTW, if the list is arranged based on how great they are, I suppose Kim >>> Maria in most aspects? Even Martina is above Maria I think despite not playing much during the decade.

Re: 15 Biggest Names of 2000/2011. WTA

Did anyone win more matches than Dementieva in that space of time?

Mary Pierce should be just below Ana and above the rest at #11....

Kuznetsova above Myskina for her 2 slams obviously, Dinara should be number 14, because she was number 1 and has more slam finals than Jankovic, and Caroline i think already deserves a place at 15, bumping Jelena to 16!

And obviously Mauresmo should be higher than Capriati....

And WTF MARTINA HINGIS is below Kimberly????? Martina is just miles ahead of talent and results wise please......

Re: 15 Biggest Names of 2000/2011. WTA

"Big names" is kind of an ambiguous term as well. I think if we're going by fame alone Sharapova is a bigger name than Henin and probably Clijsters too (I know I'm biased, but I still think it's true).
