my choice go for Mary Joe Fernandez... 3 Finals, lost to conqueror of her time, Graf twice and Seles once.

Sukova would be second... she should have one at least one.

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

I still wonder in the back of my mind what Helena's career would have been like had she beat Evert in the Aussie 84 final.

I somehow think she would have had a different career had she followed her magnificent upset of Martina in the semis with a another win over Chris.

If there is anything that can increase a player's confidence as a tennis player is winning a Grand Slam title.

But it wasn't meant to be. Such as life.

Myself and Pamela Shriver (or Spamela as we like to call her behind her back in honour of all the crap that comes out of her mouth).

I am Former World Number 5 Jo Durie. Over looked for far too long so add to my reputation and show you care! Make my day! I owned Steffi Graf! Oh and I'm a TRUE Brit *cough* Virginia...

If you had the talent and deserved one then you would have a title in my opinion. It's what separartes the champions from the very good.

Having said that if forced to pick I'd go with Sukova. Players like Date, Tauziat and Zvereva were all fine players but in no way were potential singles champions in my opinion.

i think Huber and Fernandez

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
