How in the world can one answer a question like this with any modicum of intelligence unless every accomplishment of EVERY female athlete ever lived are documented and made available for comparison. Sorry, I did not mean to get off like this, however, everytime I here one of these "who-is-the-greatest-EVER" argument, I wonder of people realize that the only way to objectively respond to these type of arguments is to analyze the achievements of every single athlete that is being compared.
It is one thing to compare athletes of the SAME sport from different eras, but to do so among different athletes from different eras is even more absurd. The "short" answer to this question is NO- Serena is not the greatest female tennis player (or athlete) of all time of ALL time. No one is.
