View Full Version : Which retired player should have won a grand slam title?

Jul 8th, 2002, 08:43 AM
IMO MJ Fernandez, not because she is my all time favorite, but she has all of those talent, but injuries forced her to be on the sidelines in most of her career. 3 Grand Slam Finals? that is not bad at all! Go Mary Joe

Sukova and Shriver also should have one at least 1

Anke Huber :sad:

no one because saying that they should have won is taking credit away from the players who at least proved they were good enough to win them!

Oh... you have to say it's Natasha Zvereva
and Kimiko Date.

I'm also surprised that Mary Jo Fernandez never
won a slam. She was so close to it at majors.

Kimiko Date

Jul 9th, 2002, 12:43 AM
Pam Shriver. On the rise in the era where Navratilova and Evert were ruling the tour. Then the Graf era came. Pam would probably have at least two or three slams if she were born a few years later.

Natasha would be my first pick, but since she just played singles at Wimbledon I don't think you can count her as retired.

Kimiko's got this great new website.


It's in Japanese;but check out the photo gallery!!
Those wedding photo's are really nice. I didn't know
she married some German race car driver that's
drives in the Japanese Formula 1 tour.

She's pretty busy for someone who's retired. LOL.
There's the Kid's tennis clinics, the 2 books, the
cosmetic company promo work, the TV commentary
jobs for tennis, the FM radio show, the photo exhibit...

Graf? Mandlikova? lol lol.

Anyway definitely Shriver, Garrison and Sylvia Hanika. They all had chances and at least they can say they were at least in a Grand Slam final.

Mary Joes Fernandez,Pam Shriver in WTA;Henri Leconte and Miroslav Mecire in ATP.

Jul 9th, 2002, 12:30 PM
Anke Huber - the mental side (in matches and the pressure that was put on her by the German media) and injuries were the cause of her not winning at least one.

Jul 9th, 2002, 12:41 PM

Jul 9th, 2002, 03:33 PM
Totally agree about Anke...if she hadn't been German (in the shadow of Steffi) I think she would've broken through. She had a great career though. Mary Joe is a strong case as well, but she was never physically strong enough to make it through the seven matches.

Jul 9th, 2002, 03:44 PM

Usually its the ones that were regular top 5 players and failed to break through, or ones in multiple Slam finals.

Helena Sukova & Mary Joe Fernandez spring to mind immediately.

Helena should have won an Aussie Open at Kooyong on the grass...and Mary Joe a French Open.

Jul 9th, 2002, 03:49 PM
Mary Joe and Anke Huber.
Soon is Amanda Coetzer, I dont she will win anymore GS.

Anyone saying Van Roost, Appelmans or Testud just hasn't got a grip of reality. :rolleyes:

I believe if you deserved a grand slam title then you would have one. If you didn't win one it meant you couldn't cut it at the highest level. Of those who never won one I think Helena Sukova is the most surprising. She seemed to have the game for it.

Jul 9th, 2002, 07:45 PM
I think that people blame miss hubers not grand slam succes on the german media is a big lol too, what if she was by example from france or great britain, would their media not have pressured her even more considering they had nobody who kept them satisfied like the germans had thanks to queen Steffi?
