the women listed in this poll have had a significant/profound impact on the women's game. I would add others such a Justine Henin
, Evonne Goolagong, Kim Clijsters and Suzanne Lenglen to that discussion.
As for overall accomplishments, I would have to agree that Seffi Graf
belongs on the top of the list followed by Martina N
. Not sure who would be next but it would be either Chris Evert
or Margaret Court
. Billie Jean King and Serena Williams would be contenders for the 5th slot in my book.
