Even more than Seles? :lol:

Monica Seles went to 8 consecutive finals (1991 U.S. Open through 1993 Australian Open) after missing the 1991 Wimbledon. However, she did make it to 11 consecutive that she entered between the 1990 Virginia Slims Championships and the 1993 Australian Open (again, with the only one missing being the 1991 Wimbledon which she skipped).

Think of who she had to play. She was in the Eras of peak-Graf, Seles, Martinez, played Navratilova, Sabatini, etc.

Sanchez-Vicario was 10-31 in finals against Graf, Seles, and Navratilova.

Lindsay 89 finals, 51 wins - can add more
Seles 85 finals, 53 wins-

Their stats are pretty close though Seles obiously has more majors.

But great careers for both of them.

Now having overall better record is a different story, we are not even talking about that.

of course she is not nearly there wherem monica is if you just compare the numbers of tournamnets played

oh NO, you need to comprehend a bit. how does lindsay have a better record when she has 4 more finals and 2 fewer wins than monica? that's not a better record at all.

she does have more finals, but not a better record. do the math.

Whats the title of the thread??

MOST FINALS PLAYED!!!!

Did they even mention best percentage? A player can reached a better record than navratilova and steffi by reaching just 2 or 3 finals and win all of them, thats 100%

Again, Most final played is the thread. CAn you double ur dosage now?

dear me... you're the one who brought up "finals record" and asserted that lindsay had a better record :tape:
the thread title may certainly well be "most finals played", but this is a DISCUSSION board where people discuss things like records, times when players played, and the quality of their finals opponents.

i REALIZE that players who have only played 10 finals would have a huge advantage over the players who have played 50+ finals, but when we're comparing people at the top of the list, nav, chris, steffi, monica, lindsay, percentage won and total won come into play.

once again, this is a discussion board. thanks.

He was saying that Lindsay has been to more finals than Seles. 89 v. 85...

i see that that's the way you took it, but if someone were to read that sentence "that shows how great she (davenport) is, even more than seles." it could mean any number of things. i'll admit i probably chose the wrong one in assuming that he was asserting that she was a greater player because of this. but in the sentence structure, it's EASY to see how this could happen.

some of you guys really need to take a statistics class. that is NOT a record. it would be a "record" if it were total finals divided by total tournaments, another "record" where I'm assuming monica would have a better percentage.

what you're saying is not true. davenport has more finals, but she doesn't have a better record than seles in doing so.

Look at the context of the rest of the thread. It is clear what Mr. Burns meant. It was obviously misread as a statement that Lindsay is somehow better than Seles...that is not what he was saying. It is clear as day. He was actually complimenting Monica. He was using Monica as a benchmark and saying...wow, Lindsay has more finals than Monica!

All these sensitive Monica fans are giving the rest of us a bad name. Chill. Monica still rocks. So does Lindsay. Mr. Burns was clearly not ripping Monica.

Monica kicks Lindsay's ass in nearly every department, we all know that, but the fact remains that Lindsay has reached more finals, that, by no means, makes her better than Monica, it's just a stat that happens to be in Lindsay's favour...

i admitted i was wrong in what I thought he said, dude. chill.
if you read my first post, i was caught off by what mr burns wrote and rolled my eyes and said "oh dear". then i was personally attacked by davenport fans. i agree that reaching 90 finals is HUGE, and lindsay could get to 100 if she played another year! that would be great.

but then when people start misusing words like "records" and such, i had to defend a different point not even related to my first post at all.

Well, then go to threads which says, Over all records and stop criticising Daveport fans for being delussional coz we are difintely not.

and YES this is a discussion board with title thread so please try to understand first whats the topic.

Hey, I wouldn't go this far! Monica is only up 2 titles than Lindsay and obiously if Lindsay plays until 2007, 5 titles is achievable. Also Lindsay, has a better record on doubles.

Again, I am not saying that Lindsay is the better player, because Monica still has the better over all record!!! I love Monica too and she is my fave too.

I just dont like that phrase " Monica is Kicking Lindsay Ass in every department"

Well it's true, Monica has more titles, more Slams (9-3 is quite comprehensive), more weeks at #1 and has reached the final of every Slam, anyway, I said 'nearly' not 'every department', of course Linds leads in head-to-head and doubles...

I'm a massive Lindsay fan, but you need to be objective, Monica > Lindsay :)

I am also curious about Venus, Serena, and Lindsay...they have all been in lots of finals!

Venus - FP: 50 FW: 33 (didn't count the 2 w/o's in FP)
Serena - FP: 34 FW: 26 (didn't count the 1 w/o in FP)

I think those are correct.
