I do nto think that Serena's 4, US Open including in 1999 is even touchable. Well, Steffi or Monica must have won more..

It's still a WTA title. Venus' Olympic championship counted and it's not even a WTA title and no points were awarded.
Of course, because sports value of Olympics is unquestionable. Grand Slam Cup has no sports value, and it was played as exhibition, with most of matches being partly fixed ( i.e., for spectator's sake, we split two first sets and then play the third ). It was even more ridiculous in ATP. I remember Kafelnikov playing Ivanisevic, and the two were clearly fooling around. You can count it all you want.

No, Knizzle is right. Grand Slam Cup was counted as an official tournament. Furthermore, it's counted in the official head-to-head records. I think the men's grand slam cup also counted toward their tournament totals.

Serena´s run wasn´t shabby either. Paris, IW, nearly won Lipton as well!!, Acura classic/ J.P.Morgan chase and of course u.s. open beating three former champions, including no.2 /defending champion and no.1 back to back to back.
