There are just so many i cant even count on both my fingers and toes hehe!...ok there are different "comeback queen" catagories, sure, like Corina's comeback from leukimia :angel: ...BUT im really looking too see what the BEST on court tennis comeback has been? is it Davenports comeback from knee surgery in late 01? when she was world #1?

OR is it the famous Cinderella story of Capriati's? once hailed as tennis's next "chris evert" and propelled into american stardom...to just fizzle out :confused: eventualy and then to everyones amazement :eek: ROAR back into our hearts and in doing so capturing three slams and the world #1 ranking for over four months off and on...hmmmm i wonder??? well i will let YOU ALL decide! ;)

thanks!

since i started this thread i will have to say Capriati's...because #1 its the most famous comeback story EVER...tennis and even sports wise ...and #2 i find that she always finds a way to comeback...even if she looses she always makes it difficult for her opponents to finish her off!

"i will have to say Capriati's...because #1 its the most famous comeback story EVER...tennis and even sports wise"-trish

i bet a bunch of people could think of a few tennis comebacks let alone make lists of greater SPORTS comebacks.

steffi three surgeries in less then 2 years, the competition that suddenly raised to incredible heights(according to tennisjam), horrible loses and then suddenly she kicked the but of the whole top 10 in three weeks(well the ones she met) and that while she was ranked 22 and had hardly no chances for the masters anymore and she did it

Personally, I'd say Corina. I mean the girl fought off death.

But, tennis-wise, Jen's was the best as far as results. I mean, winning two grand slams. I do give her credit for coming back, although, she was the one who got into trouble so she couldn't play. Corina couldn't help what happened to her.
And Lindsay..her's is awesome too.


So, Corina..I'll vote her.
