Lindsay has won 3 singles and 3 doubles GS and has nearly 40 of each titles.
The only changing factor would be the amount of doubles GS finals Lindsay has been in.

win loss doubles 348-101 =77.5%
win loss singles 582-162 =78.2%

lindsay has lost 6 grandslam doubles finals and 2 in singles

what do u think better at singles or doubles???

She's a tremendous doubles player as well as the excellent singles player that she is. Tough question. She's more known for her singles, but her doubles is probably one of the best games out there.

Yes. She was one of the few players ranked #1 in both singles and doubles at the same time.

1 player out of 128 wins a singles title. 2 out of 128 win a doubles title, and some of the best players won't even be playing. Lindsay's singles record is by far superior.
