Re: Better player- Graf or Seles
Graf, of course.
There was a period in the prime of Graf's career when Seles was better in the slams. But you can't take that period and extrapolate to a 'might have been'. Martina Hingis won five slams before her 20th birthday. And none afterward. Had she suffered some tragedy in June 1999, what might we have said about what might have been?
What would Maureen Connolly have accomplished without her tragedy? What would Althea Gibson have accomplished if she'd been allowed to play all the slams in the prime of her career? What would Evonne Goolagong have accomplished were she not bucking racism in Australia?

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.
