I'm surprised to see Serena so far ahead of Venus. I'd have thought people who liked one would like the other the same, or close.

No Surprise: not a single Brit makes a top-15  :( murrayfan, sid, me, thePAW, Alison and any other Brits really should've got our acts together. I did put in some picks, did the other Brits?

Actually, had I started this thread when I first joined, I'm all but certain Serena and Venus would have held the top two spots. Posters like wilsonboy, Arcforce, Venus 05 Wimby...and on and on... dominated the heavy influx of WTA noise. It was also a much younger community back then, so Steffi Graf was probably Andre Agassi's wife to many. But since the Williams sisters play has become more erratic, these folks have disappeared. NJtennis and Serena Slam 06 are about the only two hanger-ons, but even they post less frequently.

An ambition fulfilled

But did she vote on this thread? She doesn't post much when she is here, and this thread spent a lot of time on pages 2, 3 and 4 of the forum.

Arc has very sensitive ears. All you have to do is slam a Williams sister and you'll let the genie out of the bottle.

Anyway, all y'all rag on my faves, do ya.  :nono: Turns out I place 3 men in the Top 10 with 1 HM, and 4 women.

#1 McEnroe = #3 on T4U's All-Time Favorite list
#2 Rafter = #7
#6 Safin = #6 (Ha! Ha!)
#9 Ivanisevic = HM

#1 Henin = #7
#4 Mauresmo = #9
#6 Evert = #6
#7 Hingis = #2
