The blonde le, le, lefthander. (She and Chrissie have also been champion homewreckers).

Re. Court, I think 11 of her 24 Slam singles titles were in Oz, mostly in an era when a lot of the top players didn't make the long trip on the then slower aircraft.

The only said that because she the one that got it popular. Most people know she is the reason Wimbledon need a bigger stadium because so many people want to see her. If it was not for her people like BJ King would never of did what they did for the sport. To me she was the first women to make a huge impact on the sport. Also she is the one the brought that drama to the sport. Read about her, she is a great woman.

Navratilova by far! Steffi barely achieved half of what Navratilova did. Court came very close, but Navratilova still did more.

Um, are you serious?

The only way this could possibly make sense is it you're talking about doubles, but Steffi didn't play very much doubles, so it's a dumb comparison.

And I'm no expert, but 22 isn't "barely half" of 18.

True. But Chrissie didn't have her mind messed up by being stabbed 4 years into that rivalry.

I know... :-/ And I like Monica and really didn't like Graf

But regardless of circumstances, saying that she accomplished less that half of what Navratilova did is just stupid.

Re: ULTIMATE QUESTION: Who is the Greatest Player of ALL Time!!

If we're talking singles, I'd say the greatest would be Graf, Evert, Court, Navratilova in that order. If we're talking overall, it goes Navratilova, Court, Graf, Evert/BJK. I'll vote for Navratilova because she's the highest combined on that list.

Yes of course I am talking about doubles. It's not a dumb comparison; nothing stopped Steffi from playing doubles. Navratilova was physically and mentally able to do both, and she had the game to. Steffi could win on the doubles court but she didn't play enough of it and well that counts against her now.
