Biggest Under achievers in the top ten

Who do you think has and continues to under achieve in the top ten? For me that would be Venus and Jennifer. Venus has the game to have won more slams, titles and definitely spent more weeks at no.1
Jen too is so much better than a title or two a year. She should be winning 4 to 5 titles including a slam a year.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Amelie & Jennifer

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Amelie for sure. No slams, 1 slam final, 10 titles. All that talent, not much of a result.

ALWAYS MARTINA HINGIS

Good luck to:
Andre, Kim, Lleyton, Vera, Marat, Amelie

Amelie is waayyy up there and Jen as well. For such a hyped talent, her trophy-case is pretty empty.

Always bet on black!

Amelie definitely.

I don't think Chanda is in there. for all her injuries she is probably an overachiever in actuality.

interesting about venus.. yes probably for her talent level she should have more titles.

jen too, in my HUMBLE opinion she's not up there with venus serena and justine in terms of the top tennis players in the world, but her title count is ridiculously low for a former #1 and 3-time GS winner.

I don't think Jen and Venus have underachieved at all. These women have won Slams and been No. 1.

Yeah Jennifer could win more titles on a regular basis, but in terms of GS results and rankings, etc. she has really excelled.

Amelie and Elena D spring to mind. Amelie made a GS final and its true, she hasn't made another since. She is now 24 and time is ticking. She really has to get it all together and give one big push. 10 titles is pretty small for someone like Amelie who has the ability to win so many.

Elena D reached a GS semi-final and announced herself. She then fell out of the Top 10 for over 2 years. I feel she should have been wiser regarding her tennis and been a Top 10 stalwart by now and built on her Slam success.

Rubin, back in the day of 1996, maybe could have won a Slam. Injuries blighted her career. But being in the Top 10 now is a great acheivement for Chanda. In today's game she has performed to her maximum level as her weapons just don't bring her much success CONSISTENTLY against the very top. A few excellent wins, but nothing to really show for it.

Jen has underachieved. She could have done so much more. Like be my sex slave. Of course, she still has the chance to achieve this, and I'd never turn her away.

Jennifer Capriati is my idol

Probably Amelie but she is getting better and better. The problem is always injury. Ditto for Venus and Chanda. I don't think people can be classed as underachieving when they've not been fit to play for long periods. Also, they have still got plenty of time to achieve greater heights than they already have .

Billie Jean, who are you kidding? your sick.

Im tired of your gross, classless, and rather disturbing comments. I hope you understand everyone thinks your a joke and rather tool'ish.

Your not fooling any of us, ESPEACIALLY ME; we are on to you. If you even cross the line between rude creepy ect ect to your long list, i WILL report you. Freak.

^^^ i just wanted to comment to ones post; jen has trophies galore, she has many runner up trophies (30 something) and 60+ trophies (including Junior, Pro, Under 10 ect) in her cabinet, so i wouldnt start feeling sorry for Jennifer, shes doing just fine.

She could win a few more tier 1'a and slams, that i agree with.
