RE: The Greatest Female Tennis Player of All Time
Not really fair not to rank Seles in the top ten of all time..I would like to see what her numbers were pre stabbing incident..if those numbers were comparable or better than Graf's numbers at that time..then she should be recognized higher....that idiotic German fan really cost her historical greatness..she should find someone to castrate that bastard, IMO

1. Serena Williams
2. Steffi Graf
3. Martina Navratilova
4. Chris Evert
5. Margaret Court
6. Helen Wills Moody
7. Billie Jean King

After the top seven, it is hard to say - with Maureen Connolly, Monica Seles, Martina Hingis, Venus Williams, Justine Henin, and others all in the mix for the top 10.

I think the big gap, though, is between #6 and #7. The top 6 are--like Tilden, Gonzales, Rosewall, Laver, Sampras, Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic--the "herd of GOATs."

I would rank Venus higher ...what Richard Williams accomplished by raising two # 1s players from Compton, California is by far the greatest sports achievement in the history of sports..that's the equivalent of raising two financial CEOs from Englewood , Illinois
