Is there a player whose highest rank was two? I can think of a few whose highest rank was/is three, but no one comes immediately to mind as having had a highest rank of two. Surely there must be someone.

I think Conchita's highest rank was 2, but I'm not 100% sure.

i think Novotna too


Sabatini always was the third but the one very close to number one -more than Conchita and Jana. if Gaby won the SF in RG 1991 or the F of Wimbledon 1991 to Seles she became number one-

Thanks guys. Yeah, I wasn't thinking of Conchi and Novotna. :worship:

I did have Sabatini in mind as someone who peaked at number three. Pity she only ever won one slam and never got to number one.

Virginia Wade and Andrea Jaeger peaked at No.2 as well.
