Your Top 20 female players of 00s and 10s

Lets make our own subjective view about the best players who the majority of TF posters actually saw live on TV or on court.

1)Player should have won Slams,(Olympic Gold, WTA Championships)at least one or achieve her best results after 1 January 2000

2)Ranking should be made "considering the entire career of the players and not just the part from 2000 onwards".


My subjective opinion
1)Serena Williams*
2)Justine Henin
3)Venus Williams*
4)Maria Sharapova*
5)Martina Hingis
6)Lindsay Davenport
7)Kim Clijsters
8)Jennifer Capriati
9)Amelie Mauresmo
10)Mary Pierce
11)Svetlana Kuznetsova*
12)Petra Kvitova*
13)Victoria Azarenka*
14)Ana Ivanovic*
15)Elena Dementieva
16)Li Na*
17) Anastasia Myskina
18) Dinara Safina*
19) Francesca Schiavone*
20) Samantha Stosur*

*active players


Later we can calculate all biased opinions and make Final TF rating

Maria Sharapova
Career Grand Slam Winner
Wimbledon 2004 ~ US Open 2006 ~ Australian Open 2008 ~ French Open 2012 and 2014

WTA Championships 2004
London Olympics silver medallist

35 WTA titles , including 14 Tier I titles
21 weeks #1 player

Re: Your Top 20 female players of 00s and 10s

1. Serena
2. Hingis
3. Henin
4. Venus
5. Sharapova
6. Clijsters
7. Davenport
8. Capriati
9. Mauresmo
10. Kvitova
11. Azarenka
12. Kuznetsova
13. Pierce
14. Ivanovic
15. Jankovic
16. Dementieva
17. Safina
18. Na
19. Stosur
20. Schiavone

the reason why I have Kvitova and Azarneka over 2 time slam champs like Pierce and Svetlana is because they have much more time on their hands to nab that second slam, and outside of that one slam they have already eclipsed Pierce and Svetlana (more YEC/T1 titles, similar number of overall titles, similar peak career high rank, similar number of slam SFs; all this when their career has JUST begun and Sveta and Pierce are done)

Re: Your Top 20 female players of 00s and 10s

1) Serena
2) Venus
3) Hingis*
4) Henin
5) Daveport
6) Clijsters
7) Sharapova
8) Capriati
9) Mauresmo
10) Pierce
11) Kuznetsova

Now it becomes more difficult ....

12) Ivanovic - Won 1 slam, #1, ranking, two other slam finals
13) Azarenka - Won 1 slam, #1, ranking, one other slam final

14) Li - Won 1 slam, one other slam finals
15) Schiavone - Won 1 slam, one other slam finals
16) Stosur - Won 1 slam, one other slam finals

17) Safina - #1, three slam finals
18) Wozniacki - #1, one slam finals
19) Myskina** - 1 slam, edges out Kvitova
20) Jankovic - #1, one slam finals, edges out Kvitova
--
Not quite ....
--
21) Majoli - She's younger than Davenport, so I think she desrves consideration, but only eight tournament wins, only won three tournaments in a year once in her career
22) Kvitova - She'll move up



* I know the criteria, but including Davenport and Capriati while leaving out Hingis is wierd. Also, Hingis was the third most accomplished overall player of the '79-'83 chort.

** Beneficiary of the Biggest Choke of All Time, but she was a top ten player and the first Russian woman to win a slam, so she deserves her props.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Hingis is valid in this poll because of her WTA Championships title in 2000, i added it to original criterias

Where is Capriati on your list?

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

For the record, I consider Hingis and Pierce players of the '90s--if you look at what they did after 2000 they just aren't that impressive.

Pierce won a slam and reached 2 more slam finals in the 2000's.

Also I remembered that A) I forgot Kvitova and B) I'm dumb and forgot that Hingis didn't win a slam post 1999.

probably you are right , but even such young girl as Wozniacki(player of 10s) played with Hingis)). As for Pierce her 2005 was pretty good , much better than any year of some players in top 20

it's OK with Hingis . She won Championships in 00s, so she is valid in this top 20
