Re: Mary Pierce: Tennis' Biggest Underachiever??
Jj74 said it best, IMO. Champions have to know how to win even on an off day, and Mary didn't really have the ability to dig deep against players she couldn't blow away. She was still a special player, of course, and yes, Mary at her best hit with more power than anybody else in her generation, and I'm including both Steffi and Monica in that statement (Not saying she was a better player than them, of course, but peak-wise, I'd take her over either of them).
