Re: Your top 10 players of the last 20 years??

I would break it up 2000-2009 and 2010-2019, because there was a huge change in 2008 when Henin retired, Venus had her illness, Clijsters became a mom and Sharapova her shoulder surgery
2000
Serena
Venus
Henin
Sharapova
Clijsters/Capriati/Hingis

2010
Serena
Kerber
Azarenka
Wozniacki
Kvitova/Clijsters/Sharapova/Halep

6) Zheng Jie
7) Zvonareva
8) Safarova

Re: Your top 10 players of the last 20 years??

The 10 players who impressed me the most at the high stage in the last 20 years:

Henin
Serena
Clijsters
Venus
Mauresmo
Azarenka
Kvitova
Li Na
Stosur
Osaka

The greatest level of womens tennis I've seen was with following matches:

Henin vs Serena
Henin vs Clijsters
Henin vs Venus
Serena vs Clijsters
Serena vs Venus
Clijsters vs Venus

not far behind:

Serena vs Azarenka
Clijsters vs Azarenka

most attractive:

Henin vs Mauresmo


On a side note, from this top only Henin would appear on a list of personal favorites. My personal favorites are players whose game style I especially like and that's different. I always want to see my faves win with their own style and range but it's subjective and not related to the show of a great quality match - I always enjoy a great quality match, no matter who plays.

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?
