You saw them on TV/Live, was impressed. but surprised that...

Their results are not as good as their talent....

My list include...

Emelie Loit
Rita Grande
Francesca Schiavone
Iroda Tulyaganova
Barbara Schwartz

well i've seen these 5 play before and was so impressed on how entertaining/ how talented they are. but unfortunately their results do not speak for their talents.

Which players are on your list???

Loit is on my list too, ever since a match with Monica a few years ago. Also Barbara Schwartz.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

iroda definitely. she looked like she was going to win that match against davenport, hitting harder, running more, and serving bigger. she also looked extremely confident and unshaken. i would have thought she would have less trouble beating people ranked below her for sure.

schett- such beautiful play on court, but i suppose she is too inconsistent.

lol... kournikova. impressive when she wins... but its no mystery why she isn't backing up her beautiful game very well.

schwartz- that match against monica, whew.

lucic- possibly the hardest hitter of the ball from the ground, but she has just been far too inconsistent since that wimbledon

loit- speaks for itself. but she had a good week in rome... so

Babsi Schwartz on the top of this list... it's a shame she's always been injured.

Loit
Iroda
Marissa

I have to disagree about Petra Mandula though... she looked so fucking slow in that French Open QF... I couldn't understand how she got that far.

You can rarely see a game as beautiful and effortless as Kournikova's game at her best.

I wonder why these two aren't in the top 10
Iroda T.
&
Elena B.
Big serves, intensity, athletiscm,
eveything a champion has, yet their results are, well, not even close to what they should be.

Iroda is inconsistent, and Bovina is a headcase. Milder form than Kournikova, still a headcase..
