Courier :bounce: you'll be the second behind Tilden ;)

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 :) )

They inducted Shriver, so :o

Jon Wherheim and Alfonsojose54 will be inducted next year ;)

They inducted Shriver, so :o

Well she is American ;)

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'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.
