A career h2h record befitting of the GOAT.

1. Among all active players currently on the WTA tour, NONE who has ever reached to the Top 10 level status throughout their careers has a winning h2h record against Serena Williams. Serena has a winning record against all of those players, safe for Anna Chakvetadze (tied).

2. Among 14 of the other 18 women (besides Serena Williams) that ever achieved the #1 ranked status, whose career's time period crossed with that of Serena Williams, NONE has a winning record against Serena Williams, safe for ASV (thanks to an injury retired match at the 1999 German Open). Serena has a winning record against 12 of them, tied with one (Graf), losing to one (ASV).

3. Among the 18 other women (besides Serena Williams) who is and who were contemporary to Serena Williams, and who is a Grand Slam Champion, NONE has a winning record against Serena Williams, safe for ASV (thanks to an injury retired match at the 1999 German Open). Serena has a winning record against 16 of them, tied with one (Graf), and losing against one (ASV).

4. Among ALL contemporary players, active and retired, who has ever reached to Top 10 level status throughout their career and has faced Serena, NONE has a winning record against Serena Williams, safe for ASV (thanks to an injury retired match at the 1999 German Open) and Paula Suarez (thanks to an injury retired match at the 2000 Amelia Island).

Total number of Grand Slam titles aside, one of the strongest argument for the case of Serena Williams being the GOAT, is her peculiar career head-to-head record. That is, Serena Williams has the greatest H2H record against the WTA #1 caliber players. She has a winning career H2H record against more of individual players who reached the #1 status level than any other player ever. Additionally, Serena has a winning record against more Grand Winner caliber players than any other women in tennis history.

So, what you're really saying is that Aranxta is the GOAT?

LOL!

Your response speaks more to your level of cognitive quotient than anything else. The subject of my post speaks to the cumulative h2h record of a particualar individual (in this case Serena) against the very best that is befitting of the GOAT, rather than just single h2h against a particular individual.

Perhaps, I should warn those with single digit cognitive quotient not to offer a response to this thread.
