No, but I think it depends on how many more. If Serena would end up with one or two more or fewer slam titles than others I don't think that in the minds of most it makes that much of a difference when it comes to ranking them. But if she ends up with a total of around 50 titles while others have more than 100, or in the case of Court, Evert and Navratilova even more than 150 (plus many more weeks at number one)...I mean that's a HUGE difference. Not that I personally will hold that against Serena because I don't believe in a single GOAT anyway. Changing circumstances make it impossible to compare greats from different eras in my opinion. But I suspect that those who insist on doing so will make a bigger case out of (if Serena was to quit today), say, Serena's 46 WTA titles vs Navratilova's 167 than Serena's 15 slams vs Navratilova's 18.
