Who is greater, Graf vs Court?

Court, 24 Grand Slams.

Graf, 22 Grand Slams.

I'm not sure about of the other factors we can compare, because of Graf was part of always a part of the open era, and Court wasn't.

I'm going to say Court.

A lot of people always bring up how Court won a lot of her Slams in depleted fields. Well, one could argue that Graf won a lot of her Slams, when her biggest rival, Seles, was not playing, due to being stabbed.

I'm going to say Court.

Re: Who is greater, Graf vs Court?

i think court is the best player - male or female - of HER TIME in history... noone has dominated the slams like court has... and no one ever will again, what she did was beyond impossible for anyone to achieve again...

with that said, i think graf is the best player of the open era, closely followed by navratilova

Except for Serena.

At even considering Serena is the "greatest" group

Re: Who is greater, Graf vs Court?

Only personal preference and bias can seperate the likes of Lenglen, Wills, Connolly, Court, Evert, Navratilova and Graf, so this one is definitely a draw IMO, although I have no doubt that Graf will win the poll (the most recent player always does because fewer remember or have the same knowledge about the older one).

Re: Who is greater, Graf vs Court?

Court, she achieved more, and on that basis i voted for her, also because i think about a zillion Graf fans will vote for Graf, so....but Court is actually winning the poll so far. I think Court was probably the best male or female player ever in terms of her level of play at that time, but times move on players always top one another whether it's the level at which they play or their achievements, it's amazing THAT maggie's record still stands.

Re: Who is greater, Graf vs Court?

Half of Court's Slam wins were at those awfully weak Australian Opens. In fact you can hardly call them the real Slams.

Yes, and Steffi wona lot of Slams due to Monica being stabbed. What's the difference?

Besides, to call all the Australian open's Court won weak is absurd. She beat Bueno, Goolagong and King in three finals there.

That's just an unexpectedly ignorant thing to say, the same could be said about every era, there is nver going to be top competition all the time. It's not the best player' fault that they are better than the rest.
