To this point I have not chosen any active or even recently retired athletes in my all-times sports greats selections. And I firmly believe the facts and stats I provided for each selection have fortified those opinions. But that ends with this post as I believe that the still active Serena Williams has proven herself to be the greatest all-time female tennis player. Some out there will still argue that it’s Margaret Court when looking at overall numbers before and after the open era. Others will claim Stefi Graf should still be recognized as the best from the modern era due to her higher numbers in some categories. And I’m sure there are a few who still say it’s Martina. But I believe at this point Serena Williams has justified her place as the best. And before she’s through, she, and her numbers, should put the argument to rest. After all, she’s done a pretty good job of it so far. Still on top at age 35, she has earned over $84,000,000.00 in career prize money. She is 5-2 in WTA singles finals, 23-6 in Grand Slam singles finals, and 1-0 in Olympics singles finals.She has been number 1 in the rankings 7 times and is the co-record holder, along with Graf, for maintaining number 1 ranking for 186 consecutive weeks. She’s 3rd overall in total weeks at number 1 at 316. She is 5-2 in WTA tour title finals. As impressive as her singles numbers are, when it comes to doubles finals she and her sister Venus are near perfect at 23-1. They are 14-0 in Grand Slam doubles finals, 3-0 in Olympic doubles finals, and 4-1 in WTA tour championships finals. And while her sister has helped to make her part of an unbeatable doubles team, Venus has also subtracted from her Grand Slam singles totals. She also has won 2 Grand slam mixed doubles championships. Serena is currently the top player in the game. Barring any unforeseen injury or health issues, she should maintain her stay at the top for now and continue adding titles to her record. For all the above and more, Serena Williams is the greatest female tennis player of all-times.
