Actually, all 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.
