Mervana Jugic-Salkic was the player who i thought of when clicking Others ;) I never knew Bosnia had a Top 250 player, let alone to 400 :eek: That's why i chose her :)

Verena Beller also ;)

Geez that's a hard one. I think it depends on where you live and stuff too. I mean I think not many people know much about van Exel, but coz I cheer for the Dutchies, then she's quite well known to most of the tennis friends I have here. I think Marosi wouldn't be that unknown either - well at one stage she was doing alright, and she got some publicity (she must have or else I probably wouldn't know of her). ;)

#252 Mariya Koryttseva

Well I had never heard of her and I've heard of most challenger players! I checked her results and she did well at the $25k Garching tournament.

ondraskova is much better than that 101 ranking she has.

There are 6 players I haven't heard of before, but for me it's Verena Beller, because she is German too and I don't know her ;)

i haven't heard of 3 of those... i don't really follow challengers, only when i don't have a pile of uni work to do that isn't taller than me... i find it difficult to follow results of players i may never see in person or on the tv. i'm sure there are many more i haven't heard of in the top 300.

Ditto. I know the others but only by name. If you asked me to name a tournament they'd played in or any of their opponents, I'd be stumped :eek:

A quick scan through the top 300, and the names that stand out to me are:
Galina Voskoboeva (191)
Olga Kalyuzhnaya (216)
Magdalena Zdenovkova (224)
Shiho Hisamatsu (225)
Paula Garcia (237)
Hana Sromova (245)
Petra Rampre (250)
and probably an increasing number from 250-300 so I'll stop there.
