I'm sure Anabel will win one more MM tournament this year... on clay, obviously.

Well if she gets one of her favourite titles this year (AKA Strasbourg and Palermo) she will have the record in her hands.

this just shows how unimportant titles are
Kournikova never won a title, and reached #4, and AMG has 10 titles andher highest ranking so far was #16
or look at Schiavone, she won "just" 4 titles in her whole career

Kournikova was never top 5. She peaked at no. 8 for a short time. Titles are important but their level matters. At Kournikova's peak she had 8 SFs and 1 F in high tier events including the YEC. Even today that gives you more points than winning 2 or 3 MMs in a year like AMG did at her peak.

This will make the guy at Backspin happy. Whenever his slam picks come out, he always mentions that AMG is one title away from only being the 2nd person to win 10 plus titles without reaching a slam quarter, of course Smashnova is the other.

Says something about maxing out your ability. Somebody has to win the non-premier titles, and she stepped up. Good for her.

Please!!:o

This is tennisforum, of course there are people who cares:weirdo:
If YOU donīt care, why are you posting in this thread and just donīt ignore it????:shrug:

Watch just big torunaments thatīs OK but if you donīt care about this lesser one, donīt act like you are the only one on this forum, there are people for which are relevant also 10k tournaments.

How dare you to compare them? Anna is GOAT because she prevented ?ornikova to ever win a tournament! :lol: :oh: :rolls:

OTOH AMG is not GOAT. So Anna >>> AMG! :yeah:

I really like AMG and I hope she does break the record. Glad that she is finally playing well again too.

In terms of "notable mentions", I believe the Felon's Frau had 9. Of her 11 career singles titles, Zurich was a Tier I and Hanover a Tier II. (Madrid in '98 was lower Tier if I'm not mistaken, and Cincy definitely was in 2005)

SINGLES TITLES
2008 Bali (H)
2005 Gold Coast (H) Cincinnati (H)
2002 Zurich (IH)
2001 Pattaya (H)
1999 Hope Island (H)
1998 Hobart (H) Hanover (IC) Madrid (CL) Maria Lankowitz (CL) Palermo (CL)

If Vinci beats Dramabel she will bag her 6th :eek:

No. Smashnova is the ultimite MM Queen. AMG is a peasant in peasant's clothing.

+ AMG never reached a Slam QF, and has beaten only 3 top 10 players (one by ret.) since 2005.

A true legend of the game.

Yes Tanasugarn has 4 MM, but I don't know I consider the Grass MM a step up. She did beat a world #1 and a top player to win both of them (both were Safina though).

Even if AMG breaks the record, she will never be as amazing as Anna!

Until the post-Wimbledon clay MM still exist, she's got every chance of doing so. Who cares about GS results? We're talking about the minnows here :shrug:

Speaking of MM GOATs... how could we forget Henrieta Nagyova!

9 MM Titles, highest ranked 21!

She loved whoring the small tournaments back in the day :lol:

I miss her, she was a great player to watch :awww:

11th title today :)
Maybe 12th will follow in Asia or definetly next year :lol:

I still believe Smashnova's success on hardcourts puts her higher than dramabel in thier MM titles. she also had two runs of multiple titles, IIRC.

Phil=)
Jul 18th, 2011, 10:06 AM
But Dramabel is definetly the better player and can also play good matches on HC as you can see. She could have 3 titles on HC now if she hadn't lost finals against Date or Errani.
