I'd have to agree with Mark- Evonne Goolagong was in the final of the Australian Open, and won the French and Wimbledon. Billie Jean King has always felt this was the year she played the best tennis of her career, however, she really didn't start to dominate the tour until after Wimbledon, where she lost in the semis to Evonne.
I think the same thing with Kim Clijsters- while the tournament titles for the year are impressive, they shouldn't outweigh the majors- and Evonne is 2 to 1 compared to Billie Jean on the year.
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
