Well, everyone else is doing it!
Chris is often regarded as a distant 4th in discussions about the greatest, after Nav, Graf, and Court. However, parts of her record are much better than these three players, and her career results overall are much more consistent.
Consider these facts:
1. from her first grandslam entered, the USO in 1971 as a 16 y/o (that's Maria Sharpova's age), she reached the semi finals or better IN EVERY GS ENTERED until Wimbeldon 1983 when she went out to Kathy Jordan
in the 3rd round due to food poisioning. This was the only time when she lost before the QF of any GS event she entered. By the time she played her last GS in the USO 1989, she had only lost in the QF 3 times. That means she lost before the SF of the GS she entered from 1971 to 1989 only 4 times- INCREDIBLE.
2. She is the only player to to have won at least one grand slam per year for 13 consecutive years. When she lost to Kathy Jordan at Wimbeldon 83 due to food poisoning, she was going for the Chrissy slam after taking the USO 82, the AO 82, and the FO 83. This is the period when Martina was hitting her peak, yet Chris held 3 GS titles!
3. She has the highest match winning % in the open era. Higher than Graf, higher than Navratilova.
4. Her 125 consecutive matches won on clay is already well known....six years, undefeated.
5. On her weakest surface, grass, she won 5 GS titles (3 Wimbeldons, and 2 AO), and was runner up a further 10 times- pretty good for a baseliner with a frying pan serve, who pitty patted the ball.
6. It took Martina almost 10 years to break her 56 consectuive match winning record, and even more time to surpass her in matches won, and tournament titles won (though she eventually did!)
7. She is tied with Navratilova with 18 GS singles wins, but how many more could she have won had she bothered to turn up to the AO and FO in her prime, whereas Martina did play these events in her prime.
8. She has a career GS, including a record 7 FO, and 6 USO (4 of which she won consecutively)
9. Even though during parts of her career, Tracy Austin, and Martina Nav had a string of consecutive wins over her, she had the determination to continue to improve, and eventually get to the stage of pulling herself back to their level, and even surpassing them (in the case of Austin). The only exception was Graf, but this was when Chris was well into her 30s.
10. She was never ranked outside of the top 3 for HER ENTIRE CAREER, except for her final year, when she fell to no.4, and spent over 70% of her career in the top 2.
I think that you would agree that these are indeed extremely impressive stats, and her consistency in some ways makes her achievements as impressive, if not more, than her rivals for the greatest ever title.
It's a shame that she gets lost in the Graf- Sles stabbing debate, the Graf Navratilova (doubles shouldn't count argument), and the Margaret Court (her 11 Aos shouldn't count) nonsense...................
