Regarding Evert it must be realised she missed out a great number of Australian Opens and quite a few French Opens. The AO was not considered the major tournament it is today back in the 70s and was often skipped by a lot of the top ladies of the time. Evert attended the AO only 6 times in her 19 year tennis career, winning twice. At this current time Serena has attended the AO 13 times for 5 wins.
And how is that LORDRENA's problem. Chris Evert DELIBERATELY CHOOSE TO SKIP THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN. SHE THOUGHT IT WAS BENEATH HER TO PLAY THAT TOURNAMENT .If anything history is punishing her, for her arrogance.
Top players routinely played the Austrailian Open in all of Serena's Australian Open wins , WHICH MEANS SERENA'S WINS CAME AGAINST SUPERIOR COMPETITION. YOU OWNED YOURSELF !!!!!!
In regards to the FO over her 19 year playing career Chris she missed the FO 6 times, winning 7 times (attending 13 FO). The missed years were due to her playing World Team Tennis and restrictions put on her that she not be allowed to play the FO due to her WTT commitments. Serena has attended the FO 16 times with 2 wins.
PRISSIE CHRISSIE HAD THE OPTION OF CHOSING BETWEEN WTT & THE FRENCH OPEN. She made a disastrous choice. She knew the repruccions of her actions. SHE CHOSE TO UNDERMINE THE FRENCH OPEN TO WHORE OUT MONEY AT THE WTT. SERVES HER RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!
Serena won multiple french open's and that is how history will view her record. SUCKS TO BE YOU HATER!!!
Chris attended the USO an incredible 19 times in a row from 1971-1989, winning 6 times. Serena has attended the USO 14 times for 5 wins.
I DID NOT KNOW THEY HAND OUT MEDALS FOR PLAYING THE US OPEN MOST CONSECUTIVE YEARS IN A ROW, MUST HAVE MISSED OUT ON THE MEMO
Chris attended Wimbledon 18 times with 3 wins, although reaching an astonishing 7 additonal finals on other occassion, invariably losing to Martina on most of those occassions.
Translation : Serena Williams won more Wimbledon titles than Evert
Evert reached 34 GS singles finals, more than any other male or female player in history as well as having the higest winning percentage in male or female history of 90.05% with 157 career titles, well clear of Serenas 57. So based on these factors if they were to be equal at 18 GS singles titles each I still put Chris well ahead.
LIKE YOUR OPINION MATTERS !!
whilst you are at it please elaborate on the number of rounds Evert had to play to win her tournaments in the 1970's. In some of the tournaments she had to play less that 2 rounds to win the title. Boy they must have exhausting
In comparison to Martina Navratilova I put Martina well ahead of Serena by sheer volume of her 167 career titles (compared to Serenas 57) which includes 18 GS singles titles, a record 31 GS womens doubles titles and 15 GS mixed doubles titles. Serena has 13 GS womens doubles titles and 4 GS mixed titles, well short of Martina's records.
Yes Serena falls short of Navratilova's record,
ALONG WITH EVERT, GRAF, MOODY.
I also consider Chris and Martina as being much more versatile players than Serena is, having had to play Grand Slams on varying surfaces such as Grass, different types of clay and hard courts.
Evert's won her slam on Australian grass, Wimbledon fast grass , red clay, green clay, fast decoturf 2 i.e 5
Navratilova won her slams on Australian grass, Wimbledon fast grass , red clay, fast decoturf 2 i.e 4
LORDRENA won her slams on Rebound Ace, Plexicushion, Slow red Clay, Fast red clay, Fast wimbledon grass, slow Wimbledon Grass, Fast Decoturf 2 , Slow decoturf two i.e 8
WHOSE IS MORE VERSATILE NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They also had to contend with wooden and graphite rackets
SERENA HAD TO CONTEND WITH NATURAL GUT STRINGS AND POLY STRINGS
Their versatility is also seen particularly in Martina who could rally with the very best baseliners and yet showed one of the most skilled volley games in modern history.
Could you please post videos of navratilova hitting a Forehand drive volley, backhand drive volley and hitting winners whilst doing the splits,
Surely a versatile player like navratilova should have hit those shots.
Also post videos of chris evert doing the same as She is also soo versatile
Serena tends to have a one dimensional power game and tends to overpower opponents due to her strength for a woman.
Yes and Navratilova was the epitome of feminity and only beat her opponents by hitting feather touch volleys
