YOu do realize that this forum part of 'real tennis circles'? And we're having the argument here.

For that matter, Evert's 90% career winning allows her to stake a claim to.

First off, calling that era 'push-tennis' just reveals your ignorance. You had to think in that era, not just hit the ball hard, and one you had a winner set up, you really had to go for it to get velocity.

As for Court would beat Serena/Graf quite often. On those courts with those rackets. Serena's serve wouldn't BE what it is with those rackets, The sweet spot on them was the size of your fist, and you couldn't get near the velocity.

You are right in that Court would be hard pressed to get a set with modern technology. Her game was built for the ball going so much faster. But I think it would be much easier to adjust from the old technology to the new, rather than from the new to the old.
