(Multiple) career grand slam in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles, had to play against *two* GOAT candidates (Evert during most of her career, changing her whole game to take the better off her, and Graf in her latter years)--noone really comes close to Navratilova in my mind, even if Graf was very opportunistic with the Seles stabbing and used it to compile a better GS record.

Graf second, of course.

And all of those who rank Serena Williams above Evert (and above Navratilova), I guess your only excuse is that you started watching tennis a couple of years ago. Williams is currently far behind Evert, trying to hype her as GOAT really is irelevant at this point, she isn't even top 3 yet and there's really no way around it.
