Very poorly written, especially if it's an excerpt from a book. He's hopping from one thing to the next and back again.

Anyway, Graf

In my opinion Serena had her chances,but she didn't use them...I feel that both Williams sisters had much more chances to achive more on tour...Steffi also like Williams sisters struggled with injuries a lot,but when ever she had a chance she used them...so,indeed Steffi is THE GOAT!

Steffi!

Actually, after seeing Serena defeat Steffi at IW in 1999, then crawl out of that 3-5 3rd set deficit against Kim Clijsters 3rd round and defeat Martina Hingis in the US Open finals, I had thought Serena would be the next best bet to win a Grand Slam. I don't think she will at this point in her career though. I don't think I will see this achievement again, so to me, too, Steffi is the GOAT.

'golden slam' is for players who won all 4 slams + Olympic gold medal I think. and only Steffi will be under this category.

Nice read!
Steffi
Just realized Mats Wilander also was quite dominant at slams that time.
1988 definitely was their best year.
