Basically nobody argues people like King, Seles, Connolly, or Lenglen being above her at this point. The only other one some argue might be Wills. If you have Serena outside the top 5 though you are in the minority, not the majority.
Sorry but i was basing my comment on those who had listed their top ten in this thread, not external commentators ie navratilova. And the majority, albeit marginally, place Williams outside the top ten. I, who have not as yet, listed my personal top ten, would not put her in my top 5. But I'll compile my list and see where she falls. But i also will put Evert above navratilova. Your previous case for this has definitely influenced me
