Most Fragile Top Player of All-Time

Pick the most fragile top female player, mentally or emotionally, of the Open Era.

For me the pick is: Hana Mandlíková.

The poll is for a top player either as a Grand Slam winner, having reached the top or near the top.

Hana was such a talented player, but she never reached #1, though she won 4 slams. She did play in a tough era. But she also never could control her emotions and handle her nerves. Her mental game let down her physical game.

Re: Most Fragile Top Player of All-Time

Mary Pierce, until she found Jesus and then, herself.

She is the first who come to mind. I, perhaps have forgot others.

Also, Ana Ivanovic & Gabriela Sabatini, two fantastic players who cried herself to sleep with the burden of being #1.

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend

Re: Most Fragile Top Player of All-Time

Novotna had the game but not the tennis brain..when it mattered! Sveta just loses her mind during points.
