So far it's only a nomination. Do all nominees get inducted?

I really like Sukova, but it is a surprising pick, IMO. The issue isn't if she was a great player - she was, and she had a great career.

But, lot's of great players have great careers but don't get into the HOF.

Sukova presents the question of how to treat players who excel in doubles - 9 doubles Slams, 5 mixed Slams, 69 titles overall. That's impressive. And, unlike some elite doubles player (Gigi Fernandez, for example), she was a heck of a singles player - 4 slam finals, 10 titles, wins vs. all the top players. That alone wouldn't get her in, but on top of her doubles exploits it's pretty amazing.
