I just saw Martinez on some Tennis Channel "Top 5 Underrated" shows. I don't think she's underrated (as in where she ranks), but maybe "unerappreciated. She really was a great player, great variety - 34 tournament titles, Wimbledon title, AO and FO finalist, and just a ton of other Slam SFs and QFs (including all 4 SFs in 1995), and Fed Cup titles. Wins over all the greats of her generation, though her overall record against those players was pretty abysmal. That's probably why she isn't appreciated more. And, she was an introvert, wasn't beautiful or "hot". So, not surprising that she's not talked about all that much.
