Re: Who is the worst player to reach top 5?

^hey Mary Jo made 3 slam finals and even managed to stretch Steffi to 3 sets at the French, she's not a bad top 5 player.

As for Lady Aga she Hingis 2.0. Don't expect similar results- but at the same time underestimate her at your own peril. She's definitely got game and if she can somehow learn to serve I would really start taking her serious.

I have to say it's Radwanska......She didn't even start her first Grand Slam SF...

Re: Who is the worst player to reach top 5?

Chakvetadze. One good season without any spectacular results or particular match wins (her 2006 Kremlin Cup win was better than anything she did in 2007, IMO, and it still wasn't that great) was her ticket to the top and then she plummeted, albeit given what had happened to her that was justified.

It's usually #3-4 posts on average though so I guess the thread getting to 8 posts before it being mentioned is one small grace.

Re: Who is the worst player to reach top 5?

In all my years following tennis this has to be the saddest top 5 (and 10) i've seen in a long time.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!
