There's no doubt that these players should have achieved a lot more in their pro tennis careers.. In your opinion, who's the biggest waste of talent?

galle-sidot had a magic-like left-handy ground-strokes. she could have hit her into-out forhand 7-9 time sucsessfully and she hit so many winners with placement rather than power- and that made her game a beauty.

I cannot remeber any other non-power player who hit so many winners just by placement. what a shame she under-achieved. :(

I voted Lina because she's one of my faves. :wavey: But Gaelle-Sidot had a very good game also and should definitely have achieved more. :sad:

Re. Baby Blue Eyes, it wasn't really her fault. When Lina was around 16 she developed a foot problem that needed her to take a few months off, but some lousy doctor kept giving her injections of painkillers and anti-inflammatories, to let her keep playing. Even if she wanted to, @ 16-17 it was really the doctor's responsibility not to just do what she may have wanted. (And her parents may have been @ fault on this too).

What about Casanova? She was quite talented too. She had a similar technique to Martina but with much more power.

The answer is not on the poll... ANNA KOURNIKOVA!!! Should've have done 10000000 times better then she did!
