Best Player Of All Time

No other votes for Venus or Serena PLEASE! not to be mean to them, cause they are great players, it's jsut that at this point in their careers it's to early to judge them "best ever" or whatever, they just haven't played long enough to be judged that way!

i voted for court because her career was on and off i think she retired twice and came back and she still got all the GS titles in singles, doubles and mixed doubles.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

I'm too young to remember what Evonne was like as a player, but if it was for best current Fed. Cup captain, she would have no trouble winning

I'm too young to have ever seen Court, Evonne, Connolly... so I can't comment on them.

The best singles player would have to be Martina N., slightly above Steffi. Steffi played the best tennis I've ever seen from 88-89... but Martina was a top 5 player for 20 straight years! She was #1 for about half of those! Those are records that will never ever be matched.

The best overall player is Martina without doubt... and that will definitely never be touched.

where is anna?

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
