This is coming from a huge Federer fan.
I thought about this and on the one hand, Graf has accomplished more. Yet, on the other, I think the greatest of all time should honour the best and most accomplished tennis players who will always be men by virtue of the label "best." I don't think it's sexist, just the truth. How could the greatest tennis player of all time be Graf when she'd lose to a challenger we've never heard of?
