Evert won 18 grand slam singles titles. Can Venus ever match that? In any case, they're both great champions.

Chrissie Evert played at a time when Navratilova was her only competition...it will be more difficult for Venus to repeat because of the deepness in the WTA field....from one to 20....anyone of them can win...they are just sooooo close!:worship:

I said Yes. But barmaid basically stated the primary reason it'd be difficult. It would help if Venus could get herself into the Top 5, rather than have to pull a phoenix every summer.
