The 20 Greatest *Active Singles* Players on the WTA Tour

Note: This list is completely subjective, and is based on how I think players will be remembered.

Please Read Criteria:
Number of Slams first.
Slam finals is second.
Ranking is third*

Non-slam career titles fourth.
Doubles titles serve as a tiebreak, when all else is even.

*Exception: #1 ranking trumps slam final.
