View Full Version : Players who dreaded other players.

Feb 12th, 2002, 02:26 PM
I was thinking about players over the years who really would of shuddered when they saw a draw with certain players on the same side as them.

For instance, Martina Navratilova defeated Pam Shriver the last

27 times they met. I'm sure Pam dreaded seeing that name on her side of the draw.

What other players really dominated thier opponents in such a fashion?

Martina Hingis - Sandrine Testud :)

Feb 12th, 2002, 02:52 PM
Dokic must Dread Davenport....however i think in the match at Aus Open and Wimbeldon Jelena couldve caused the upset...:)!

hopefully with Jelenas improved serve , shell turn that around....she learns each match evident as she finally learnt to handle the spaniards. :)!.....now shes gotta do the same with Hungarians and Davenport

Steve, I was more referring to players who had at lost at least their last 10 matches if not more to one player. :)

Feb 12th, 2002, 03:10 PM
it happens when all i read is the thread title.....lol......im soo lazy today!

I am sure Tauziat didn`t like to meet Steffi :cool: 22:00 44:00 in sets, I think it was not ment to be for her considering the only time she had a chance to win at least as set the rain came.

Feb 12th, 2002, 03:14 PM
Wow, Tauiat never even got a sniff of Steffi. You could say it's a perfect record. ;)

Feb 12th, 2002, 03:22 PM
omg , surprised at pam and nathalie!..steff and marti are just not human:eek:

Feb 12th, 2002, 03:27 PM
Yep, Monica -- Tauziat 10-0

Few other Monica head-to-head records:
Monica -- Mary Joe Fernandez 15-1
Monica -- Conchita 19-1
Monica -- Arantxa 19-3
Monica -- Anke Huber 9-0

Martina N played Anne Smith 23 Times, with a 22-1 record...the time Anne won?...Martina injured herself...:o

Feb 12th, 2002, 03:41 PM
I think most players on the tour dreaded playing Martina N. ;)

I know Barbara Rittner hates playing ASV.... always loses straight sets ;)

Feb 12th, 2002, 04:47 PM
Maggie Maleeva has never beaten Conchita in all their matches I don't know if are 9 or 10, but I'm sure Conchi has even a 6-0, 6-0 in Hamburgo I think, it was the first time in open era a top ten was defeated by another so heavily :drool:

Double Fault

Chris Evert played Mima Jusovec and Virginia Ruzici a total of 34 times all together and did not lose on even one occasion. (11-0) & (23-0) v Bunge (13-0) v Basset-Seguso (9-0) and Sylvia Hanika (16-1) Hanika did beat her on one occasion. :)

Feb 12th, 2002, 07:00 PM
Last year I'm sure Arantxa hated playing Hingis, with Martina winning the last 16 of their matches without dropping a set to her until she lost to her last year in amelia island i think???

Feb 12th, 2002, 07:17 PM
The ENTIRE Maleeva family must have hated playing Steffi considering they went 0-36 against her!!!:eek: Not even one win between the 3 of them!

Steffi v. Manuela: 17:0
Steffi v. Katerina: 11:0
Steffi v. Maggie: 8:0

Feb 12th, 2002, 07:23 PM
I'm sure Lindsay hates wenever she draws Serena. Serena holds an 8-2 record against Lindsay, something Lindsay isn't use to. Serena hs dominated Lindsay their whole career

Pam/Nathalie. Interesting.

Venus leads

Silvia Farina Elia 7-0 (they're playing this week so... ;))
Elena Likhovtseva 7-0
Chanda Rubin 6-1
Monica Seles 6-1
Ai Sugiyama 7-0

Cause Venus doesn't play a lot, she doesn't have that many wins against most players yet...

Adrian Dear, may I have a word with you......privately! :mad:

Feb 13th, 2002, 02:21 AM
Once again, a parallel between Monica and Steffi. Monica is also undefeated against the Maleevas.

I think the most lopsided of 30+ match head to heads would be Martina Navratilova vs Zina Garrison. 1 win for Zina, compared to something in the vicinity of 34 losses (not sure).

On the other hand, I'm sure Suzanne Lenglen had a disgustingly nasty head to head against a few people.

lol... Suzanne Lenglen?? You can combine all the players that ever played her and she'll still be as dominant ;)

Feb 13th, 2002, 04:05 AM
patty schnyder against anna kournikova....cos it's personal for her....she'd rather not play anna actually....

Now Ed, this thread was started to discuss PAST dominance of players against others...Not my fault certain fans see anything from 3 wins on as dominance:rolleyes:

I did pacificly say WINS IN A ROW....ala, Martina defeating Pam the last 27 times they met.

Shit, I can't defend this...17-0 is bloody good :bounce:

Feb 13th, 2002, 08:38 AM
Lindsay against the Williams sisters. Ho Hum.

Feb 13th, 2002, 11:19 AM
I'm pretty sure Chris Evert has beaten Wendy Turnbull over 30 times to Wendy's one!!!!!
