You can't neglect tennis before open era!!!
I've only seemed to mention this to him a few billion times and he never seems to acknowledge it. Therefore we must conclude that TMF is correct. Tennis and the universe didn't exist prior to 1968.

Incidentally even after 1968 we can put Court up there with anyone considering she won the Grand Slam in 1970.

Here's Court's won-lost from 1968 on. Awful isn't it. Only 96 tournaments won plus 11 majors in that time and a Grand Slam. I would say her record even from just 1968 on is better than many greats entire careers like Hingis, Davenport, Sharapova, Clijsters, Henin, Venus Williams, Mandlikova, Goolagong etc. The first group of numbers are her won-lost record and the second is the amount of tournaments won.

68 104-12/14
69 98-5/19
70 113-6/21
71 64-4/10
72 61-7/10
73 100-5/18
74 14-3/1
75 39-11/2
76 9-2/1
77 16-5/0
