It proves absolutely nothing. We all know that Graf is one of the greats. But who is the greatest? Nobody, and I mean nobody can ever truly say. There are infinite variables when trying to compare players and eras. All we can say is there are a number of legends and the uppermost tier includes the likes of Lenglen, Wills, Connolly, Court, Evert, Navratilova, Graf. And then there are many more not too far behind ... from all generations. And what about Seles who was robbed when on her way to immortality? She will always be an all time great in my eyes, but her record was cruelly damaged by extraordinary circumstances.
It isn't just about the past 20 years either. People played the sport and legends were made well before we came along.
