I don't think Serena necessarily needs a Grand Slam in a year. If she gets more majors outright than Graf, by all means she's the GOAT. If she gets close (say 1-2) many will likely think her power game (which blows opponents off the court) would give trouble even to Graf and Serena could be recognized as the ultimate female player. Still though, she needs to start racking them up.
