Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

If you think Venus from 2004-2006 was anywhere close to playing peak tennis ever then you are even more retarded than you already proved you were when you actually argued persistently that Goolagong...

Re: Martina Hingis, overrated?

Hingis in her matches with the Williams by 2000-2002 was limited to between 4-11 winners per match, even when it went 3 sets (which was the only time she would eke into double digits on rare...

Re: Jankovic: Where Did It All Go Wrong??

So Jankovic doesnt lack power? I must have been watching a different player all those years then. How is Jankovic more powerful than Sanchez. Both have a fairly powerful backhand, and pretty...

Re: Jankovic: Where Did It All Go Wrong??

Dementieva is a power baseliner, not a pure grinder. Ferrer was alot better in 2007, he was having wins over Nadal which he isnt good enough to do anymore. He is just enough of a fighter and...

Re: Martina Hingis, overrated?

Yes that is why she lost over half of her combined career matches to Clijsters, Henin, and Mauresmo. Those 3 were known as such big "power" players, LOL! She also lost three times to Patty...

Re: WWW Tokyo QF: Sharapova vs Stosur?

Does this matchup even warrant a poll.

Re: Jankovic: Where Did It All Go Wrong??

The point that was made is ASV's peak lasted very short period, and the same is true of JJ. All you are saying is ASV still had succes in her non peak periods, but this is a pointless argument. ...

Re: Why is Graf overlooked?

I do agree had Martina not existed Chris would be the undisputed GOAT today. Not only did Martina deny her so many slams, but Martina's total and embarassingly one sided ownage of Evert for a few...

Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

Those subsequent matches dong prove anything. I dont doubt Lenglen is by far the greater player overall (why do you think I have Mallorey on this poll and not Lenglen). However that doesnt change...

Re: Jankovic: Where Did It All Go Wrong??

What is your point? We are talking about Sanchez and others like her relative to their own selves. Jankovic is not anywhere near the player or talent or competitor Sanchez is, so just because...

Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

Maybe you are right but in Billie Jean King's book she quotes a French doctor who used to work with Lenglen and resigned after that event, and said he believed Lenglen was not too ill to play at all,...

Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

Well just as you claim Seles was past her prime (which I agree she was, regardless of the stabbing) when she played Venus, Venus was past her best at the time of nearly all her meetings with...

Re: Monica Seles (1.0) vs. Monica Seles (2.0)

The pre stabbing to players were mostly all relatively easy matchups for Seles. Sanchez Vicario (a Seles pigeon), Martinez (a huge Graf and Seles pigeon), Navratilova ( too old by then, not powerful...

Re: Martina Hingis, overrated?

Pierce and post stabbing Seles were slow as molasses which is why Hingis owned them. Hingis was the master at exploiting their mobility. Your point is merited but if every decent power player...

Re: Monica Seles (1.0) vs. Monica Seles (2.0)

One major problem with your theory is for half of the last 50 years 2 or 3 majors were played on grass, so the best players were usually grass specialists half half of the last 50 years. Then even...

Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

So now any match Seles played after the stabbing means nothing. :lol: If that is what she and her fans truly expected she should have never returned to tennis in the first place. Even without the...

Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

Well Osborne Du Pont and Brough didnt play the Australian hardly ever or even the French that often IIRC. In the context of the time those events werent that important. Hart did choose to play...

Re: Martina Hingis, overrated?

I dont know where Sharapova came into this thread but for what its worth no Sharapova does not rank above Hingis yet. She has 1 fewer major, as much as the #1 stats are overrated she is glaringly...

Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

Henin's prime began when the Williams got injured, Capriati, Davenport, and Seles got old to the point she could start easily and regularly beating them, and Clijsters became a headcase, especialy...

Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

Doris Hart? She had her most success when Brough and Du Pont were getting old and after Connolly's career was ended. In her own era she should rank even below Brough and Du Pont who generally...

She couldnt beat anyone. Her head to head with Justine Henin is 0-9.

Re: Jankovic: Where Did It All Go Wrong??

Even Wozniacki has more game than Jankovic since she at her best she is an A to A+ defensive player and one of the most consistent players of the last 15 years, making almost no errors. Jankovic...

Re: 10th best player of all time behind the big 9

6 people actually voting for Hingis and her Clijsters or Sharapova caliber career in a transition era as a top 10 player all time ahead of the likes of Seles, Gibson, Henin, and Venus. I knew...

Re: Monica Seles (1.0) vs. Monica Seles (2.0)

Yet I consider Henin and Mandlikova more skilled and natural grass courters than Seles and as you said neither won Wimbledon, and Henin couldnt even manage it in a weak grass era. So I stick with...

Re: Monica Seles (1.0) vs. Monica Seles (2.0)

Agree. Monica's one and only chance to win Wimbledon would have been 1994. Would have been interesting to see. However wouldnt the draw have changed if you added Monica. In that case Graf...
