Re: 'Journey Women' who became top players for a brief period before returning to nor
so a journeywoman is a player who has a limited talent and is just playing for the love of tennis knowing they have no actual chance of being a top 10 player and winning titles/slams regularly.
Players like Dokic or Groenefeld don't fit into that catagory. They really don't if you factor in the OP's other criteria i.e. having years of scrub status before suddenly becoming top 20 and then 12 months later dropping back.
