This will require some work, since they didn't have a ranking point system as they do now. You'll have to compare things like relative competition.

Well since Martina is not going to have the chance to have a Evonna Goolagong-type career I think your question has been answered.

Martina's what, 23? Modern medecine makes advances everyday. Besides, I'm sure some people feel Martina was the greater player even with the career she had. Who's to say?

Evonne had more singles Slams than Martina, which I think is the biggest factor. Based purely on that, I'd give the nod to Evonne.

evonne- more singles slams and look at who evonne had to play- margaret, billie jean, chrissie, martina nav (4 candidates for the greatEST ever player)

I just think it's a no-brainer. Outside the fact Martina won way more doubles titles than Evonne, at this point in time, Goolagong has the better singles record between the two.
