Re: Serena's LEGACY: By the Numbers~ (New milestone added)

I think when it's all said and done for her career, she'd be in the top 7 WTA title leaders (so that's at least 55 titles) and I can see her win around a high of 5 more Grand Slam titles, putting her just a few behind Graf. I think once she matches Navratilova/Evert she will be the GOAT. BUT if she somehow were to match Graf (possible, just not likely) then she would not doubt be considered the best.

Re: Serena's LEGACY: By the Numbers~ (title #48 added)

Also, 15 wins out of 19 finals is the best winning percentage of GS winners over 10 slams right? ~79% winning percentage

That's a very interesting stat, although I'm not sure what to make of that. It's one of those stats that can actually work against her in some ways. Some might argue that someone good enough to win 15 slams should have a ton more regular titles under their belt. Of course you and I both interpret that stat as an example of how Serena raises her game when the stakes are high. I'm also not sure about a stat where Samantha Stosur lead Serena... but at the same time it's a fascinating stat.

Samantha Stosur 33% > Serena Williams 31.2%

I think that's tempered by the fact that Stosur only has 1 major and less than 5 titles. There should be a minimum. Like at least 10 titles.

Re: Serena's LEGACY: By the Numbers~ (title #48 added)

u should add all of her amazing stats like being the first player to beat top three top 10 players ranked as low as she was, or her being the lowest seed to win the australian, or her the higheset paid female athlete (excluding endorsments)

If u list a stat that u feel is important to her legacy I would gladly add it to the list.
