Although I never saw her play and therefore cannot offer a truly informed opinion on the subject, I'd like to put in a word for Maureen Connolly. Whatever exactly her game was based on -- lethal aggression, wonderful technique, or some combination of these factors -- there must have been something truly special about her gifts. The margin between her and the other female players of her era was enormous. No one wins 50 straight slam singles matches (!) without massive talent.
