Whose Career Would you choose: Kim Clijsters or Mary Pierce

if you were to have a tennis career, which career will you choose between the two?

Kim's or Mary's

Mary has 2 slams, Kim has yet any.
Kim had been no.1, Mary hadn't.

which one?

either...I'm not fussy

How about between Venus & ASV? Both have 4GS, around the same amount of time at no.1 and both have 29 titles.

silly question. i don't get the need to compare players and completely different stages in their careers. mary has achieved much more and until clijsters steps up mary has had the better career by far. but i mean it is just pointless to have these kind of threads

Let's take two (fictious) careers as an example :

X :

has won 5 times the masters, has won 65 tournaments, has won more than 16 million dollar, has played 8 GS finals (but lost them all), has been more than 3 years number one, has been number one in doubles, has won multiple doubles slams

Y :

has won two slams, has lost one GS final and has lost 1 Master final, has won 7 million, has never been higher than number three, has won 18 tournaments

Well, if you believe the people on this board then Y has had a much bigger career than X


Let's take two real careers :

Iva Majoli : has won 1 slam
Kim : has never won a slam, ....

Who has had the better career :

Answer : Majoli, off course

Well don't underestimate the carreer of Mary. I made an article about her (it's in Dutch and you can read it on www.tennissquad.tk -edition 11/12) and was surprised to see what she did. she has several records on her name and had some great wins. That said I think it's better to choose for Kim because she is at the 'beginning' of her carreer. But if you think that way .. it's a stupid question because you can't compare both!

Roland Garros '03,'05,'06,'07
US Open '03,'07 / Australian Open '04
Olympic Gold '04 /
YEC Madrid '06,'07
41 titles
