Both these players had a lot of hype and pressure on them before they even hit the pro circuit in the early '90s ( very late '80s for Huber ). Iva was to be the new Seles ( even though there was still a very good young Seles around ) while Huber was the next Graf ( who was also sticking around ). They could only ever fail to live up to that hype. Who would you rank higher of these two ( I feel they were of very similar standard ). Iva certainly had the higher highs with winning a grand slam title and three tier 1 titles but Anke seemed to be the more consistent performer. Does that 1 grand slam title automatically place Iva ahead of Anke in any historical pecking order?
Both Majoli & Huber reached a singles career peak of #4. Iva reached #24 in doubles whilst Anke reached #23 as her best. Huber never managed to win a set against Seles and never beat Graf either though she had a couple of big tussles with Graf. Iva never beat Graf but did secure 1 win against Seles.
Anke won 12 WTA singles titles whilst Iva took 8. Anke's biggest was in Philadelphia in 1994, though she had that 5 set epic year end final with Graf. 4 of Iva's 8 titles were very big news ( Roland Garros, Zurich, Tokyo & Charleston ).
At slams Anke was a runner up in the Australian Open and reached 2 quarter finals. At the French Open she made the semi finals once, Wimbledon she made the round of 16 five times and she was a two time quarter finalist at the US Open.
As for Iva she made 1 Australian Open quarter final, was champion at the French Open and three times a quarter finalist there, once reached the quarter finals at Wimbledon and reached the last 16 at the US Open once.
