Re: Who is better: Mauresmo or Sabatini?
I don´t know whether I would say the stats back up that Mauresmo had a better career. It´s virtually equal.
77% Winning percentage vs. 70% Winning Percentage
0 weeks as #1 vs. 39 weeks as #1
27 vs. 25 titles singles
13 vs. 3 titles doubles
1 Slam vs. 2 Slams
2 Slam finals vs. 1 Slam final
15 Slam semifinals vs. 5 Slam semifinals
10 Slam quarters vs. 9 Slam quarters
Basically one had to contend in a top heavier era with a harder ranking system, while the other had to contest in a deeper era with a softer ranking system. It is reflected in their results. Sabatini has more titles, a higher winning percentage and the more consistent Slam results. Mauremso has more Slams and more weeks as #1. Personally I think either could have achieved what the other did, if you switch their time in history.
