they may be wonderful players, but greatest players of all time??? how low are they on the list, b/c they are definitely on a level lower than Venus and Henin

Little Mo had 9 and is a very strong argument against needing double digits to be in the GOAT discussion.

Re: How many Majors should player win to be called "one of the greatest players"?

I would say 9 because Connolly has to be in the one of the greatest players discussion. How can she not be? Lenglen officially only has 8 but she actually won the closed French Championships 4 times as well so I would say she gets in on a technicality.

That gives the Top 10 (Lenglen, Seles, Connolly, BJK, Serena, Wills, Evert, Navratilova, Graf, Court) that most people would agree as for a discussion on the greatest players.

Therefore, it is 9.

7-8 feels right.
