She has no rival and it's not because she is just that amazing but because the field is just so awful that when she actually plays like sh!t (Wimbledon and USO finals), no one can do anything about it.

In terms of accomplishments, she'll probably end up in Evert territory. Somewhat close to the greatest but definitely not the greatest.

Now if we talk about who the "best" female player of all-time is/was? I havent seen any form since 2002-2003 that comes close t
o the best players of all time aside from the serve.

Serena is 30+. You're acting like she's in her 20's. The fact that she can still play at a high level, even now, says tons. Don't use the weak era argument, because Serena won over half of her slams against Kim, Venus, Davenport, Capriati, Hingis, Seles, Mauresmo, etc.
