Irma, I have to disagree. I think Arantxa always gets the credit that she deserves. Everyone recognises that she is a former world number 1, and that she is a great claycourt player, and her many tournament and her federation cup victories.

However, her only grandslam outside of the french was 1 USO when Steffi was injured, and even that went to the wire. Her record against Monica was, and still is poor. I actually think that her career highlight was the Wimbeldon final which she lost against Steffi. I think she really displayed to the world what she was capable of in that final.

I sort of compare her to Hana, who won a similar number of GS. Except I would say tha Hana won 3 of the 4 majors, regularly beat Chris and Martina, and had patches on the tour when she dominated the tour and was clearly the best (ie when she won 5 tournaments on the trott beating Chris and Martina on the way).

Don't get me wrong. I respect Arantxa, but I think she gets her dues...:)
