Which active Australian female player do most Australians recognize?

Well....it could've been Jelena Dokic.
After Alicia Molik won bronze, has she become the most famous female player since Margret Court? or has she always been the more popular player over Rannae Stubbs and Nicole Pratt?....Good job hitting top 20 by the way.

rennae stubbs is virtually unheard of by non tennis fans, same with pratt to a lesser extent
alicia has been our most famous player since jelena left, but she still gets nowhere near the media coverage she deserves

Go the Aussies

Sophie Ferguson ~ Casey Dellacqua ~ Samantha Stosur ~ Jessica Moore ~ Christina Wheeler ~ Monique Adamczak ~

Tennis isnt given the exposure

i can recognise most aussie tennis players but people who didnt follow as much most likely id say would be Dokic, possibly, Bradtke and Mcquillian and now Molik

It could've been Jelena Dokic but she's Serbian now... but answer from your question would be Alicia Molik.


Inspiration is for amateurs


Faves: Mona Barthel / Samantha Stosur / Roberta Vinci
