Noah? What are they looking at exactly to introduce a player to the HoF?
Noah won 1 GS, 23 titles (most were pretty small events) and was no. 3 in the world at best...

In France, Noah was often caricatured (sp?) as an always injured loser! (Even is everyone was loving him because he is a good guy and because of his win at RG of course )

Good luck to: King Roger, Marat, Andre, Guga, Tim

Queen Justine, Daniela, Elena, Jelena, Tatiana, Babsi, Manu and Timea!

And, it is a detail... but she also got 22 Grand Slam titles even if she got none in singles

if novotna is in, that means gaby and conchita could make it too.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

I'm a little surprised about Noah, too. He was a great personality and an excellent player, but outside of his '83 Roland Garros, he only once made the semis of another slam (AO 1990).

Novotna at least had other close finishes at Wimby...

Jana deserves to be in due to her great single and doubles career. She could get in on her doubles career alone. Jana also made the Oz finals too.
