I agree with these. Splitting it up like this really demonstrates what a subjective and nebulous concept greatness is.

It really is completely up for debate as to who is the greatest.

It's also interesting how many * there are regarding those who aren't quite in the highest echelon (yet - possibly).
Seles - for her stabbing.
Connolly - for her horse-riding accident.
To a lesser extent Serena - her sister's murder which caused depression and had a huge affect on her mentality and game from 2004-2006.
Even Lenglen - if she hadn't turned professional, had played the USO, AO etc.
