Because the women never officially retire. They can't induct Seles, Capriati, Pierce...etc...because they all say they might come back.

Natasha Zvereva and Gigi Fernandez should have been in by now
so much more worthy than some recent one slam wonders.

Monica is the only one who would qualify this year (last played '03).

they don't have to be officially retired. here is the rule:

Recent Player Nominees (3)Eligibility criteria for the Recent Player category: Active as competitors in the sport within the last 20 years prior to consideration; not a significant factor on the ATP or WTA tour within five years prior to induction; a distinguished record of competitive achievement at the highest international level, with consideration given to integrity, sportsmanship and character.
