The Next Great Player
I'm going to set a completely artificial criteria. 9 GS singles titles, or 30 total slam titles overall. '30 total slam titles' overall applies to only sseven players in the hisory of women's tennis.
Margaret Court (62)
Martina Navratilova (59)
Margaret Osbourne DuPont (36)
Louise Brough (35)
Helen Wills Moody (31)
Suzanne Lenglem (31)
Billie Kean King (30)
Doris Hart (30)
All those players won at least 6 GS singles titles, so I am NOT lowering the bar some how to let undeserving doubles players into the conversation.
Add to those seven the few players who won ore than nine GS singles titles and NOT 30 overall slam titles ...
Graf (23 overall, 22 singles)
Evert (21 overall, 18 singles)
Connolly (11 overall, 9 singles)
Seles (9 overall, 9 singles)
And you pretty much the best of the best. The next player who even enters the discussion is Serena, but she's active, so why get into it?
Putting Serena aside, who's the next player who's going to achieve 9 GS singles titles or 30 overall GS titles.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
