I don't think anyone will achieve what they did. They were great champions and we have to be realistic. This is also a different era of tennis and I look more at Venus Williams and [Martina] Hingis, who've also won five. My goal is to win a few more and I believe I can actually win Wimbledon, which is a big passion of mine" - comparable perhaps to Roger Federer's to win the French title."

In the Belgian media she is talking about the 6 and 7 wins of Graf and Evert at RG.

Her 'to win a few more' is in fact at least 4-5 slams,even 6-8 slams. She wants to become the best after Graf, Navratilova and Evert.
