I think Monica is 51-29. She only failed to make one Final from late 1990 to early 1996.

Don't remind me Julian! lol

Karina's been to the finals of I think 5 tournaments (96 Berlin, Luxembourg, 97 Linz, 99 Portschach, Sopot) and has unfortunately only come away with 1 title, which was Portschach.

Steffi won 107 finals and lost 31, im more then half of the tournaments she played she was at least in the final

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
