Greatest of the Greats?

Let us settle this once and for all. State your reasons.

Do you actually think that is going happen? Do you think we are going to get anything other than a repetition of the same timeless arguments we have had over and over on this board?

Please tell me:

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Re: Greatest of the Greats?

Do we really need this discussion? Again?

Is everyone who didn't vote Steffi trying to be funny?

Re: Greatest of the Greats?

This can't be settled because it's really impossible to accurately compare players from different eras and you could make an argument for any of those players listed about why they're the greatest.

There's no discussion. Margaret Court wins this easily.

Re: Greatest of the Greats?

Steffi: her 22 Grand Slams can't be disputed, even if she's not my fave, nor even my favorite player of that era

Re: Greatest of the Greats?

Of that list, I'll go by the numbers. Otherwise, it's arguable.
