Psychic are you? Or just disrespectful of other people's opinions? Hmm...


Anyway...in case people hadn't figured it out, there is NO greatest player of all time. Only person bias and subjectivity can influence one to say that Steffi Graf is greater than Martina Navratilova and vice versa. And given the fact that alot of the people voting in this poll won't have even seen 3/4 of these people play makes it pretty null and void.

The fact that NO-ONE has seen Lenglen or Wills-Moody play a full match, and these are clearly two of the greatest of all time, makes it impossible in my view for us to ever come to a remotely acceptable conclusion as to who is the greatest player ever.

(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Not really She certainly helped popularize women's tennis and no doubt is a major contributing factor in the development of women's tennis. But to say she made it what it is , is a sweeping statement to say the least. When Suzanne hung up her racquet the game of tennis was nothing remotely like it is now. And I don't think that being pioneer for a particular sport should really contribute when we are talking about who is the greatest tennis player.

Re: ULTIMATE QUESTION: Who is the Greatest Player of ALL Time!!

Picked Evert, model of consistancy and I love her two-handed backhand.

Honorable mention--Seles would have been the best player ever if not for the stabbing.

Serena Hingis Venus Hsieh Keys Date-Krumm Riske

Pierce Seles Capriati Bartoli Davenport Kournikova Sugiyama Frazier
