Question What's your player's WTA equivalent?

I don't mean physically, I mean career-wise

For instance, I think Regla Torres, so far, has being a lot like Justine Henin-Hardenne.

* Both their favorite surfaces are clearly CLAY
* Both won Berlin last year and this year on Charleston (beating the world #1 along the way)
* Both are from countries where there are a lot of top female tennis players now.
* Both are decent doubles players but most of their best results had come from singles

What about yours?

Well I modeled my player after Sabine Appelmans. However, her ranking far surpassed Sabine's highest. So I would have to say Mary Joe Fernandez.

-Tiffani has never won a major, neither has MJ.
-Both highest rank is #3 in singles.
-Both are strong doubles players.
-Mainly baseline players with the forehand as their biggest weapon. Tiffani's serve is more powerful.

I modelled my polayer as Conchita Martinez in terms of playing style with lots of spins and shotmaking. Although I would have loved to be like conchi and win Wimbledon

FWTT
-Oldest game in wtaboard, started in April 2000 even before wtaworld is born.
-You can create your own player, making their own name, making their personality.
-Some player has been playing for more than 10 years

I think Jana Novotna:

+Sabine Graf won only 1 GS title in Wimbledon
+She likes to play on fast surfaces
+She hates clay, she lost several matches
+She is a better doubles player at the moment
+Her highest ranking was 2nd

Some very good comparisons, I agree guys

Keep them coming these are interesting.

Lucia is VERY dangerous and a tricky player like Patty too

Jane but you have won Roland Garros, you could be Iva Majoli. You've also been ranked in the top 5 and your favorite surface is clay. Lately you've also been hampered by injuries

I really can't think of anyone for Anjelika right now

Nicoletta = Virginia Ruano-Pascual

Has Vivi ever won a title? I don't think so and Nicoletta never too! We both prefer playing on clay but have had some succes on other surface(Vivi def. Hingis in Wimby and Nicoletta def. Graf in OZ Open). They play the same way. The only difference is that Vivi is a better doubles player then Nico!
