BTW: I neither think Austin was a number one in 79 nor in 80, but her constistency over those 3 years at major tournaments, head2head (nobody reacted to that...), match-record, tournament wins was good enough to be considered as the overall best player of that period - which were her prime 3 years. "How good was Tracy Austin in her prime 3 years" - is that worth a discussion ?

Just 1 point is arguable, Preacherfan wrote it here, it's IF you consider losing in Grand Slam finals more important than winning WTA championships, then Evert is ahead.
