As much as I liked her I highly doubt Carling was ever winning a slam. She was not competitive with Martina or Chris at all even in old age, and they would remain playing Chris until 89 (when Carly would be 21) and Martina until 1994 (when Carly would be 26). She was also not at all competitive with Graf who emerged starting in late 85. Then there were a slew of youngsters coming up starting in 86 or 87 like Sabatini, Sanchez Vicario, Garrison, Sukova, Zvereva, who were all better than her, much better in the cases of Sabatini and Sanchez Vicario. She might have stayed in the top 10 a few years more, and reached another slam semi, but that is about it.
