Oh, is she now?

Apparently she is 14th in career PRIZE money among active players, and, at 20, younger than 12 of the 13 ladies ahead of her. 5 years younger than most of them.

Of course, I am probably preaching to the converted. The average person on this board probably knows more about women's tennis than the average "journalist" who spreads this myth.

Any corrections by people who have checked the ages are welcome. Screw it. This thing doesn't want to format, and I give up.

Also, keep in mind that when Anna is healthy she plays more tournaments than most of the top players. I think it's wrong to say she's not fully dedicated to tennis!

Anna is a player with great looks..but she's certainly no crappy player... I wonder how a crappy player would get into the semi's in Tokio and take a set against Monica...how can a crappy player win the doubles in AO?

People who say that don't know anything about tennis...

NO ONE who follows tennis would call Anna Kournikova "a crappy player".

But I'd love to see a list that breaks down career earnings into Singles" "Doubles" and "Mixed" earnings. That would obviously give a clearer picture of the relative positions of current players in the Singles realm.
