I don't mean physically, I mean career-wise :)

For instance, I think Regla Torres, so far, has being a lot like Justine Henin-Hardenne.

* Both their favorite surfaces are clearly CLAY
* Both won Berlin last year and this year on Charleston (beating the world #1 along the way)
* Both are from countries where there are a lot of top female tennis players now.
* Both are decent doubles players but most of their best results had come from singles

What about yours? :)

Well I modeled my player after Sabine Appelmans. However, her ranking far surpassed Sabine's highest. So I would have to say Mary Joe Fernandez.

-Tiffani has never won a major, neither has MJ.
-Both highest rank is #3 in singles.
-Both are strong doubles players.
-Mainly baseline players with the forehand as their biggest weapon. Tiffani's serve is more powerful.

I modelled my polayer as Conchita Martinez in terms of playing style with lots of spins and shotmaking. Although I would have loved to be like conchi and win Wimbledon :eek:

I think Jana Novotna:

+Sabine Graf won only 1 GS title in Wimbledon
+She likes to play on fast surfaces
+She hates clay, she lost several matches
+She is a better doubles player at the moment
+Her highest ranking was 2nd

Some very good comparisons, I agree guys :)

Keep them coming these are interesting.

Lucia is VERY dangerous and a tricky player like Patty too ;)

Jane but you have won Roland Garros, you could be Iva Majoli. You've also been ranked in the top 5 and your favorite surface is clay. Lately you've also been hampered by injuries :)

I really can't think of anyone for Anjelika right now :eek:

Nicoletta = Virginia Ruano-Pascual

Has Vivi ever won a title? I don't think so and Nicoletta never too! We both prefer playing on clay but have had some succes on other surface(Vivi def. Hingis in Wimby and Nicoletta def. Graf in OZ Open). They play the same way. The only difference is that Vivi is a better doubles player then Nico!

hmm, i can't really think of anyone for marteena right now......will try and think of someone and get back to you guys....
I think Marteena Huubere = Venus Williams. Marteena has won Wimbledon/US Open double like her and has also been #1 briefly. But the major similarity is that you both are hardcourt monsters :eek: But also very dangerous on other surfaces. You both also have decent doubles records.

Petosp, then Karla ISN'T Anna obviously! :p

I think Im Sandrine Testud. :-s

Always a top 15 player, reaching the top 10 sometimes but not holding there.

Fed Cup winner.

Small titles, Madrid Vienna etc.. and some good finals, as Linz.

Good wins over top players, but not consistent enough.

And very poor results at the Grand Slams.
