Nav. sorry for Monica but she has not chance in this. it's not based on her ruined singlescareer but on the other thing she didn't do and nav did

Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

Monica. She dominated the tour with both Graf and Navratilova playing up until the stabbing. She even had a 4-1 record in grandslam finals against both of them. For more indepth information, read my signature

Monica, if they were to play at their prime,
i would have to give the edge to Monica,
Martina will probably win Wimbledon like she did,
but Monica got a Slam at 16........
and on clay and hardcourt,
Martina wont be able to outrun Monica,
so
GO MONICA....

no it's not monica. nav had to play twice as many matches, while monica only had the singles

monica had not survived if she had played singles, doubles and mixed

Forget the doubles totally and Navratilova is still the best lefty ever-hands down. She's arguably the greatest ever.

Without a Wimbledon Monica's record is incomplete at the best ever level-simple as that.

Martina beat Seles even when she was over the hill and Monica was in her prime.

No disrespect to Seles intended-but it's clearly Martina

If people can claim that Sampras is the greatest ever even though he has not won all the slams, then Seles is no difference. PLUS, at least Monica has a huge excuse which is that she got stabbed in her prime, she at least made the final, and most importantly she had a better record then both Graf and Navratilova at Wimbledon a similar stage/age in their careers. Don't let a criminal decide greatness
