Realistically Schett would get the edge but I voted for Barbara Paulus, because a) I had a little bit of a crush on her growing up and b) she was a real battler and bounced back from a slew of nasty injuries time and time again. I admire that. To have made the top 10 with her relatively limited ability and despite all the injuries says masses about her character. She also came across as being a really sweet down to earth girl.

The top 10 random:

Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario
Steffi Graf
Serena Williams
Maria Sharapova
Martina Hingis
Kim Clijsters
Venus Williams
Justine Henin
Lindsay Davenport
Amelie Mauresmo

Barbara Schwartz, injury free, would be a TOP 20 player, my vote goes to her:D

Judith Wiesner

Weisner - more longevity, tho poor Paulus had so many injuries.
Judith was a finalist at Key Biscayne but just didn't have a big weapon and never got truly in-shape. Tough player nonethless!
