Re: just for fun - Israeli all time greatest (all players to reach top600)

Although retired players' profiles in the WTA site cannot be accessed directly (unless they were world-class), I did some backtracking and managed to expand the list.
There should be 2-3 more names in there, but rankings of players who ended their careers before 1987 (the first year to show YE ranks) are almost impossible to find. The playing activity from that period is also highly incomplete, hence there are two players in the list (Vitale and Gafni) who aren't credited with any career wins! Even Fed Cup singles are only shown in the WTA site since 1981.

Player (career high) {month/year} (active players in bold, CH set last 52 weeks in Blue) [best slam performance in Green]
