Hingis most definitely is above Goolagong. Hingis won 5 real slams. Goolagong won 3 real slams and 4 Australian Opens which was a fraudelent non slam back then. Had the Australian Open been a real slam Evonne would have been lucky to win 1 and have 4 slams, still less than Hingis. Furthermore Hingis was a dominant player at her peak, won 3 slams in one year, won 3 straight and reached 6 straight Aussie finals when it was a fully legit slam, and was #1 for the most part of 4 years. Evonne was never a dominant player even close to Hingis, nor nearly as consistent a player as Hingis. Evonne isnt even in Hingis league really.

Person A has the prettiest voice to me. There is no other needed information for me to hold that opinion, other than that I believe it to be true.

Well you are not, so kiss my ass.

This is what I'm talking about, Dom.

"Serena Williams will always be the greatest player of all time TO ME..."

Plus Ivan has just added one slam and one Olympic Gold to his tally as a coach

Maybe this list from menstennisforum will help

1. Pancho Gonzales, 364 weeks and 20.66 slams
2. Rod Laver, 277 weeks and 19.195 slams
3. Roger Federer, 300 weeks and 17 slams
4. Bill Tilden, 330 weeks and 14.143 slams
5. Ken Rosewall, 242 weeks and 20.2 slams
6. Pete Sampras, 286 weeks and 14 slams
7. Don Budge, 303 weeks and 10.5 slams
8. William Renshaw, 286 weeks and 11.165 slams
9. Laurie Doherty, 252 weeks and 7.665 slams
10. Jack Kramer, 234 weeks and 8.195 slams
11. Ivan Lendl, 234 weeks and 8 slams
12. Ellsworth Vines, 191 weeks and 10.035 slams
13. William Larned- 199 weeks and 8 slams
14. Bjorn Borg, 150 weeks and 11 slams
15. Joshua Pim, 173 weeks 9 slams
16. Jimmy Connors, 182 weeks and 8 slams
17. Bobby Riggs, 156 weeks and 8.98 slams
18. John McEnroe, 170 weeks and 7 slams
19. Henri Cochet, 147 weeks and 8.145 slams
20. Rafael Nadal, 102 weeks and 11 slams
21. Tony Wilding, 130 weeks and 8.665 slams
22. Fred Perry, 121 weeks and 8.7 slams
23. Reggie Doherty, 139 weeks and 7 slams
24. Wilfred Baddeley, 122 weeks and 8 slams
25. Andre Agassi, 101 weeks and 8 slams
so Caroline Wozniacki is greater than Venus ? weeks being #1 is contovercial evidence of greatness ... Career Grand Slam is on the contrary an achievement as well as Olympic Gold
