Many people? You mean Gunter, Germany and Graf fans?

Unfortunate, but true - Graf* will always have a giant asterisk against her Slam count. Those post stabbing ones that is. 11 of them.

* - Gunter aided.
If no-one rates Graf very high, how can she be the "most overrated" player?

Geeez....common sense,just a lil' common sense...

No one can deny the fact that Graf is one of the best players[top 10] but she's overrated. Her 11 GS after the stabbing are absurd.

I take it you highlighted the tennis players... Why did you leave out JohnnyMac, Althea Gibson and Don Budge?

There's no question that Mike Tyson would kill Rocky Marciano. The question is, would he beat Marciano in a boxing match?

This thread has become highly entertaining. I'm curious to see how far these f-a-n-a-t-i-c-s can run with this and make Graf RANKED higher than Navratilova.

Luckily the facts aren't dictated by what you feel. You obviously haven't looked at the FACTS.
