when u say achievements my mind automatically goes to slam count. I guess u could be talking about a number of things but in that same vein I can think of achievements where she's one of only two players. It's subjective as to which achievement one choses to focus on and which ones u decide have less value.

I would be interested in ur thoughts about this thread:
Most important factors to consider when ranking the greats (after slam count)?

Greatest Singles Player of All Time: Steffi Graf
Simply the BEST: Serena Williams [Proud MEMBER OF RENA'S ARMY]
The REAL GOAT Rafael Nadal
Future Inductees: Clijsters, C.Evert, A.Agassi, A.Berasategui, N. Zvereva, I.Majoli, M.Safin, Li Na, VIKA, and Del Potro
