She's just not consistent enough.

She is. But she can only beat good players, when she play some crapy players, she play crapy as well...

Don't think she's the best player but definitely the greatest player not to reach top 10 with her 2 slam semis performances.

Yeah but Shaughnessy peaked in the women's golden era, has a Tier II, she was ranked number 11 (almost made it to the top 10), which is much better than number 15, and she defeated very good players playing well and again in tennis' golden era, like Venus, Seles, Dokic, Henin or Serena near their peaks, while Zheng got to her 2 Slams semifinals beating scrubs or slumping players like Ivanovic post Roland Garros

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
