Yes,I would say that Serena so far also very much deserved to be an all time great,along with Navratilova,Evert,Court etc.

It's just that among all of them Graf is proclaimed the greatest...

What is he supposed to say, it's his damn wife. He probably wants to keep having sex with her.

I also think Steffi would do well in any era.

Re: Agassi: Graf would be the best in today's game

Really?? Last I remember Steffi and her father were evading taxes and Agassi was smoking weed ...his thoughts on his wife's potential clearly invites derision & mockery ...In 1999 Steffi couldn't even beat a 17 yr old teenager

She wouldn't be a top player. She'd barely make top 5 with her tennis imported into the current time-frame.

Even Suzanne Lenglen would wipe the floor with her any-day whilst wearing high heels.

if power was the determining factor in tennis matches, then Kvitova and Hradecka would be slaying every chick on tour and nobody would stand a lick of a chance But as it stands, but are erratic ballbashers even at their best.

Roland Garros 1999. Won. Wimbledon 1999 final - beating teenagers to get there.

As for the tax, Steffi herself knew nothing about it. As for Agassi smoking weed, he has admitted to something far worse.

Cone back when Serena has won the Golden Grand Slam, the Calendar Slam, all four Grand Slams at least 4 times, and has won another 8 slams to eclipse Steffi's tally. I look forward to your return.

Hmmmm *scratches head* I've always wondered why Graf is overlooked when it comes to the individual talent of the all time greats? Taxvader tends to enter the convo/debate ONLY when it comes to slam trophy count, any clue?
