Re: Maureen Connolly: Most dominant player ever

The number of events a lot of the players enter nowadays is hardly exhausting.

However, I think basically it is flawed to compare players from different areas directly against one another as they are completely different scenarios.

If Mo had been playing today she would have been subject to modern technology, fitness regimes etc. If she had been born 50 years later she would probably have a stronger person physically, similarly in reverse for Serena for example.

A player only has to perform no better than well enough to beat their opponents.

Margaret Thatcher - Michele Bachmann two strong women of our time.
