After reading this from the WTA website, I thought that I would ask about reaching the most finals while winning the fewest titles.

Capriati, who lost to Venus in the 2001 championship in Miami, fell to 13-15 in her career finals, with her last title coming at the 2002 Australian Open 14 months ago. She also claimed the 2001 Australian and French Opens.

JCap probably doesn't have the worst winning percentage. Who does?
:confused:

I don't know who has the worst percentage, but until Silvia Farina-Ellia won her first title a couple years ago she had an awful record. She was 0-6 in finals before winning one.

Not that I'm that aware of her record, but won't the perennial joke that is Pornikova have a cack record? I know she's made a few finals, but her lack of a title is legendary. Stats anyone?

I don't know her exact record... but Karina Habsudova only won 1 title, and was in quite a few finals.

Not sure Arantxta is one to mention here after all she did win 30 titles......similar was former pro Virginia Ruzici who won like 14 titles but lost another 20 or so finals in her career.

Lipton; Family Circle; Kremlin Cup; China

4...but 3 for 4 she lost to Hingis/Venus. Tough finals

The thread is about players who have won few titles despite a lot of finals so I dont think 30 titles is what you would call 'few'. Also many were Grand Slam Finals and other finals against legends and other great players like Steffi, Monica, Hingis, Pierce and Conchita.

i think career wise, jennifer has the worst record. Seeing she could have around what like mabe 20 titles at least by now. that has to suck. what i wonder is, out of all those title looses how many have come to the name williams?
