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

the one and only Steffi Graf

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

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

I was tempted to give my vote to BJK, the woman so imported for wta-tennis, who has no votes until now but as performances concerned Steffi is IMO the best.

US Open '03,'07
Australian Open '04

Lenglen, simply because she must have lost only a handful of matches in her career while getting drunk with Brandy on changeovers...bow down bitches!

To me, Margaret Court. With Martina Navratilova just behind her and far ahead the others.

Justine hénin

Anastasia Myskina

Anna Chakvetadze, Samantha Stosur, Alcia Molik, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Elena Dementieva, Nadia Petrova, Jessica Moore, Flavia Pennetta, Mara Santangelo, Anabel Medina Garrigues

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

I picked Helen Wills Moody, based primarily on her accomplishments. However, I'm not a believer in comparing players from different eras.

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

Margreat Court. She won all those titles despite taking off as least two years of her prime, one as an early retirement after her marriage before the Open Era and another after her first pregnancy. Considering her record, she probably would have won more than another 20 turnaments along with 4 or 5 more Slams. Overall, she won about 190 sanctioned tournaments.

Yeah, as if it matters if she's playing "100%" or if she's "on form." Consistency is just as important if not more important than playing at "your best" when judging a player. If you're able to play 100% in 1 every 50 matches and in other matches you suck, then you're simply not good enough.
