She will beat Graf eventually. It would be awesome if Graf is eventually out of the Top 10 from this list. :devil:

But that wasn't the point of the thread, Serena will never catch Steffi, everyone knows that. ;)

Can't see anyone in this decade will put her out of top 10.:p

Would actually put her one above. Serena has two mixed titles.

No it would just tie her, she'd have to win another somewhere else to pass Steffi.

Serena
11 Singles
8- Doubles
2- Mixed Doubles
Equals 22

So a win in doubles ties her w/Graf- unless I added wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's correct.

21?:scratch:
If she wins doubles later, it'll give her 22?:scratch:
Need two more slam wins only Serena will pass Steffi.:shrug: :scratch:

Agreed. That was another era with different circumstances. Serena's achievement is incredible and proves she is the greatest player of this era.

2+8 = 10 + 11= 21 + 1 doubles win = 22, not 23;)

2+8 = 10 + 11= 21 + 1 doubles win = 22, not 23;)wow....:lol: That's some funky math I was doing- :help:

OK, so a win in doubles puts her above Suzanne Lenglen and Chris Evert and would tie her with Pam.

I got to edit the original post- sorry bout the bad math....

Suzanne Lenglen won 31 GS :rolleyes:The professional tours and matches from 1930-1968 are not included- most people use the Open Era as the cut-off for keeping records and such. If you include stuff before the Open Era it would get too out of control. When people cite records in tennis it's almost always just the Open Era.

:rolleyes: Her career ended in 1926... she played FO and Wimbly 16 times and she won 12 of them...
So, I'm sorry the title of this thread is wrong... Lenglen won 31 > Serena Williams :rolleyes::rolleyes:

^U can put as many smileys as you want but that doesn't change facts- Look up the stats everywhere, no one counts before the Open Era and to suggest otherwise only illustrates your ignorance.

You're more than welcome to start your own thread or to discontinue commenting if you so chose- or you can keep bitching and keep adding smileys- in either case Serena will likely overtake Lenglen today, so deal!

Once again, The title of this thread is wrong... I think you are a clever man or woman...

Suzanne Lenglen 31
Serena Williams 21

So if U are good in maths, 31 > 21

Clever enough- now 'poof' be gone!

The title NOW reflects Open Era, so prepare to be overtaken. Now I'm extra pumped for the doubles- thanks!

Suzanne Lenglen (Open era): Full contradiction:
1. Lenglen won 31 GS so you can't say "A Win in Doubles would push Serena past Chris Evert and Suzanne Lenglen"
Wimbly:
SD: 1919/1920/1921/1922/1923/1925 = 6 times
WD: 1919/1920/1921/1922/1923/1925 = 6 times
XD: 1920/1922/1925 = 3 times
---------------------------------------------------
15

FO:
SD: 1914/1921/1922/1923/1925/1926 = 6 times
WD: 1914/1921/1922/1925/1926 = 5 times
XD: 1921/1922/1923/1925/1926 = 5 times
----------------------------------------------------
16
2. Lenglen died in 30's... so you can't quote her as a open era player...

It'll be sick if Serena could end her career in the top 5 all-time list but she'd have to add some mixed doubles in the mix to get that number, she'd also have to play and win quite a few more slams.

Will you stop with this BS ? Singles are singles, doubles are doubles. I mean Pam Shriver won 0 GS singles.
