Yay Steffi!!!! I'm impressed that Heni is ranked so high already (#11). Who is Na Li and does she still play?

Na Li is 19 and all her tourns have been played on the satellite/challengers on this surface.

So that's why she (Steffi) will stay the best tennis player ever. Her game was successful an grass, hardcourt as well as on clay. She faced great opponents on these surfaces and knew how to beat them (Novotna on grass, Seles and Hingis on clay, Sabatini on hardcourt).

Steffi for ever.

WoW! Thats really interesting!

The Chris Evert Stat looked a little funny to me too, though. According to the ITF, her win/loss record on clay is 0.941, (272/17). This is probably somewhat off, becuase I don't think they kept records before 1975.

Also, the ITF gives a different stat for Graf too.

It's strange that Pitu is up there, since she prefers hard courts, but well...I guess that growing in Argentina makes you get used to clay.
