Id say Hingis is the best player all time

I mean c'mon, that girl was a GENIUS. shes been #1 for like 56789 weeks, has she ever been outside the top 5 after reaching #1 in 97???

Take the williams sisters, they're still playing and they're not even in the top 10

Hingis retired when she still was winning tournaments, shes so awesome.

Hingis and the Williams sistah's are great players. There's no need to compare the two.

Yes she is a genius. But saying she the the greatest player might be a bit over the top.

Navvy and Graffy did a lot more in their carreers though, but if Hingis continued to play and win she could be considered the greates of all time.

Don' think so.
She even lost slam finals to grandmas with reconstructed knee.
And consider her opponents when she won slams: Pierce, Novotna, V. Williams (just 17), Martinez, Mauresmo. Only 2 "blue chip" slams, but 3 AOs.
She KNEW in summer of 99 that she never would be the "greatest of all time". That broke her heart .....

logic 101:

premise1: Seles owned Graf

pemise 2: Hingis owned Seles

conclusion: therefore, Hingis is the greatest
