Among the current players on the WTA, who will be remembered and who will be forgotten by tennis fans 10 years from now?

Re: Players that will be remembered, Players that will be forgotten

Out of the top-tiered players, I would say that the Williams sisters have had the most profound impact on the game, with or without Henin on the scene.

Bartoli will unfortunately be remembered as the player with the largest weight-height ratio to reach the final of Wimbledon. couldn't resist

I'm not sure of Chakvetadze. She's still young, I think she isn't on the top of her limits.

Re: Players that will be remembered, Players that will be forgotten

Bartoli won't forgotten because of her victory against Henin at Wimbledon was considered one of biggest upsets ever in WTA history

Hantuchova will be remembered as the Carling Bassett of the 21st century. Bartoli will be remembered for the Wimbledon final from nowhere. Chakvetadze still has time to be remembered. But I don't think any of them will be remembered well.

Re: Players that will be remembered, Players that will be forgotten

Out of Top 10 in the past - Paola Suarez will be forgotten Well, she already retired

Oh yeah, Ai Sugiyama isn't great as Kimiko Date so she will be forgotten in 10 years time.

Re: Players that will be remembered, Players that will be forgotten

I think there will be always somebody that will be talked about if there are still forums like this. Look at a player like Chris O'Neill. She won one tournament in her life, the 78 Australian Open and I think she has been talked about in at least 30 threads since I have been on this board.

As long as a fan exists, no player will be forgotten.

Re: Players that will be remembered, Players that will be forgotten

More correct question is:
Among the current players on the WTA, who will be remembered and who will be forgotten by tennis fans 10 years from now AFTER RETIREMENT?

9 of current TOP20 players is 1987 or younger with chances to be still active in 2018.
