This is tough for me to admit or suggest , but is it possible that Evert is getting an uncritical pass GOAT on clay? One of the things I have been persuaded by posters here , is that Evert's clay court competition was not as tough throughout some major stages of her career as Graf's. ( I tried to persuade them that the grass court minefield of all time greats more than made up the difference when so many slams were grass) Graf and Evert have the same number of French finals with Evert converting on one more. Graf's era showcased the best of the best year after year with Sanchez, Martinez, Sabatini, Seles, second tier Maleeva sisters, Huber, and even some S& V''s who played well on dirt like Hana, Martina and Jana and Sukova and THEY ALL showed up for the French and most routinely played other clay events because they felt comfortable and competitive on the surface. Of course Evert's aces were those strings for years on end and those well attended US opens on clay with the loss of only one set. Still, not many great dirtballers rd after rd. For the record Evert has 5 italians, Graf 1. Graf has 9 Germans ( she lost 2 finals - both straight sets to Evert and Seles), Evert has 2. Evert has those Hilton head and US clay titles. Hypothetically, would a prime Evert (1985-1986, when she had her great consistency and confidence, along with her maximum power, speed and variety she acquired to beat Navratilova) win most of slams with in the early/mid nineties with the kinds of draws the RG event had? Could she beat prime Sanchez semi, then Seles back to back? How about Martinez in QF, Sabatini in the semis and Graf in the final? Would she do better than Graf did?
