I can't believe it's been 10 bloody years since Kimiko bitchslapped Davenport in the final! In that match, Lindsay couldn't touch Kimiko.. completely out played.

Although this tournament has been lacking enough top players lately, when you look at the faces of the past champs, I don't think there's any other tier I that can equal this. If only it had NOT been for Pam as champ...

Exactly! She was only 18. And she's done some bitch-slapping of her own over there in Tokyo, hence the 4 titles. She also bitch-slapped Kimiko Date 6-2, 6-1 the last time they played, which was at the 1996 Fed Cup

Mary Pierce-----Monica Seles-----Martina Hingis

Martina made the final here every year she made the final at the Australian. An amazing back-to-back feat.
