Where Would a Second Serena Slam Place Serena on the All Time List???

If Serena were to win the Australian Open and French Open in 2013 that would give her a total of 17 Grand slams and the only women in the History of Tennis to hold all four grand slams at once TWICE!! Where would this place Serena on the All Time Greatest list?

1. Greatest Of All Time, No woman has ever held all 4 grand slams simultaneously TWICE in their career?

2. #2 on the All Time Greatest list right behind Graf but firmly ahead of Nav and Evert?

3. Tied with Nav and Evert because their Slam total is still greater than Serena's, and holding 4 grand slams simultaneously TWICE in her career isn't that great?

4. Still in 4th place behind the respected Graf, Nav and Chris Evert?


I personally would go with #2 on the All Time greatest List. Just slightly behind Graf. Opinions Opinions!! First time posting on this site but have been a member for many years!!

If she had a calendar year slam, meaning winning 6 straight slams then she will go down as the greatest

Lets just hope she stays healthy

She'd still be 4th place.

She'd only be two slams away from 2nd place though.

Re: Where Would a Second Serena Slam Place Serena on the All Time List???

Let Maria answer that


The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Graf won AO, FO, WB, US 88 + FO, WB, US 93 and AO 94 and came close to do it again in 1996 (had she played the Australian Open) and in 1997 (when she lost to Coetzer in the AO quarters)

Yeah.

Touche Raiden

I do agree that It is too soon to assume that Serena will win the French. But if she continues her present form and wins the Aussie open(which I believe she will) then this questions becomes very relevant. A second Serena slam a decade apart from each other is a Feat I don't think will ever be duplicated. That alone should easily place her above Nav and Evert and slightly behind Graf.
