Hard Court[list=1][*]Steffi Graff[*]Serena Williams[*]Venus Williams[*]Monica Seles[*]Lindsay Davenport[*]Martina Hingis
Hingis has the same amount of hard-court Slams as Serena, more than Venus and Lindsay, and a winning record against Venus on hard-courts... not sure about Lindsay, but 4 slams to 2? A lot of people forget, hard courts were where Hingis thrived...

On clay Mouremo has to be a part of the top 10. Remember the many strong perfomances at Rome and Berlin and also in the us

Seles has a 85.06 winning percentage on clay.
Graf 88.79 (even better if we take only the last 15 years).
Enna 85.85.

Obviously Graf is the best clay-courter of the last 15 years.

Hingis has a 80.92 winning percentage indoors.
Clijsters 84.62.
Graf 88.73 (even better if we take only the last 15 years).

Obviously Graf is the best indoor player of the last 15 years.
