Who Will Be Remembered as the Biggest LEGEND?

In terms of both WTA fans and the general public. Think of not just results but also general appeal to the whole world.

Who out of these goddesses of the last 15 years?

NOTE: I've only included the 9 players who have been number one and won at least one slam

Re: Who Will Be Remembered as the Biggest LEGEND?

Obviously it depends on where you are based, but I'd say that very few players will go on to become genuine household names, so in terms of the general public, I'd say Serena, Venus, and Sharapova will be remembered long after their time has gone, and maybe Li Na too. I don't think the average person would get much further than those four. Some will know of Clijsters, Kuznetsova etc but I don't think the majority would now, let alone in the future.

* 2008 * 2012 * Maria Sharapova * 2004 * 2006 *
* Ivanovic * Watson * BMS * Gavrilova * Voskoboeva * Robson * Kvitova * Mladenovic * Lisicki * FutureGoat Konjuh


Elena Baltacha. Never forgotten.

Re: Who Will Be Remembered as the Biggest LEGEND?

They will be remembered by someone.

They are all great simply by their accomplishments, some remembered more than others.



...if to be measured in some way I think the least remembered will be Ana and Amelie.

The Effing Venus Williams!!!

Planet Venus

You seem to have forgotten Seles too, so I presume she won't be remembered too.

Seems like there's obviously something wrong with your memory or you are just not really into tennis, because if you really think tennis fans will not remember Seles and Henin then you do need a lot of

Seems like you are a bigger troll than you try to be.

Martina obviously, her gamestyle was a sight to behold even if it only gave her 5 slams.

Nonsense! Serena has 13 Slams and would have dominated peak Hingis on any surface, 2002-on. The same is nearly as true of peak Henin, Venus, or Kim. Obviously I would have to pick Serena, then Henin, Venus, then Hingis.

What part of winning a slam and being number one during the last 15 years do you not understand? Seles didn't do either of these, let alone both. So Gtfo and stop trying so hard to catch me out.

Re: Who Will Be Remembered as the Biggest LEGEND?

Seles should be on this list. She was a great champion but in all honesty I think most people remember her because she got stabbed. My mom is clueless about tennis and if I talked to her about it she is always like "who's that one taht got stabbed, etc." Or she Martina Navratilova because of her public scandal with her outing and leaving of Czechoslovakia.

Re: Who Will Be Remembered as the Biggest LEGEND?

Why are people saying Seles should be in the list?

Was she number one in the past 15 years? No
Did she win a slam in the past 15 years? No

Get a grip, please.
