Of the seven women with potential for GOAT ( Lenglen, Wills, Connolly, Court, Evert, Navratilova, and Graf) I just can't justify giving the final trophy to the woman with arguably the worst record of the seven on European red clay. Martina has just two majors on the red dirt, no Germans, no Italians or Madrid titles to mitigate. She was superb, no doubt, when at her very best ( read 1984). but Evert wasn't everywhere on the continent and Navratilova just did not come up with the goods often enough anymore than Evert did on grass . Therefore Graf who did on all surfaces, beats both for GOAT IMHO.
