I would consider not only results which are obviosly most important criteria, but the impact that player has in the world of tennis to:

1) Serena WILLIAMS - THE MAMA, absolutely the best female tennis player of all times
2) Venus WILLIAMS - One of the greatest of all times
3) Maria SHARAPOVA - Golden slam, former #1, worldwide superstar
4) Victoria AZARENKA - Most promising player of this generation, #1 at the moment, 2 GS titles
5) Ana IVANOVIC - GS winner, former #1, worldwide superstar, the most beautiful player of all times
6) Svetlana KUZNETSOVA - Two-time GS winner, former #2, very persistent player in the past
7) Na LI - GS winner and multiple finalist, first Asian player to win a GS, big impact on tennis development in Asia
8) Petra KVITOVA - GS winner, former #2, one of the most promising players of this generation
9) Samantha STOSUR - GS winner, Ausie superstar
10) Caroline WOZNIACKI - former #1, numerous WTA titles despite defensive tennis
11) Francesca SCHIAVONE - GS winner, one of the best personalities at the court
12) Agnieszka RADWANSKA - GS finalist, former #2
13) Vera ZVONAREVA - Multiple GS finalist, former #2
14) Jelena JANKOVIC - GS finalist, former #1
15) Kimiko DATE KRUMM - Multiple GS semifinalist, the oldest active player ever on WTA tour
16) Marion BARTOLI - GS finalist, persistent player
17) Nadia PETROVA - One of the most persistent WTA players, former #3
18) Angelique KERBER - Best German tennis player, one of the most promising at the moment, top 5
19) Jelena DOKIC - former #4, one of the most controversial life stories on WTA tour
20) Sara ERRANI - GS finalist, one of the best Italian players ever

Ana 5? No. Li NA is borderline #4 right now. Shes got influence over a BILLION people in china. Shes the first chinese player to win a slam. Azarenka needs to win another slam to surpass Li imo. if its on "how" they will be remembered. Maria and Li get the bumps for being the 1rst.

Venus Ebone Starr

Serena Williams

Madison Keys
