You mean: 2 titles including GS ;) :lol:
At least she won another tournament. Unlike Chris O'Neil whose one and only singles title came at Australian Open.

I can't help bumping this thread.

Jana Novotna seems to be the epitome of late-bloomer: she won only 6 tournaments (all Tier III and below) before turning 25 but ended her career with 18 more singles titles including 14 Tier II and above titles.

Navratilova by the age of 25 compared to 30 is also :eek:

God, Conchita made so many slam semis....bad luck she didn't get to a few more finals or win a couple more. Seles, graf and Sanchez-Vicario were always too strong for her though.

wow. i had forgotten seles' teenage record.
and the importance of mental fortitude or a carefree attitude very evident here.

I know she was far from memorable, but I don't see Tracy Austin anywhere. She did win two slams as a teen, and reached three semis.

maybe it is before turning 20. Masha won Aus Open when being 20, right? Oh well, Annak_4ever will tell us / correct once he is here again

Apparently due to my natural stupidity I thought that "by the age of 20" means "before turning 20". Now I have realised I'm dumb and my English sucks.

Jankovic is 24 now right? And Sharapova is 22 or 23 soon?

Sharapova is 22 21, Jankovic is 24.

Mar 10th, 2009, 09:38 PM
Ok, thanks! This is very interesting to me because Jankovic is almost 25, middle of her career and still hasn't won a grandslam and Sharapova is injured and closely approaching the middle of her career since she doesn't want to play till her late twenties.
Very, very interesting.

Well, she's basically 22 because she can't win anymore grandslams as a 21 year old, :lol:

Seeing your avatar, it is expected for fans like you to come up with BS stats like this. How covenient huh? You ain't fooling no one here except morons stuck on the pova cool aid.:rolleyes:

How about comparing their achievements at age 22 since pova will be 22 next month?:haha:
