Mauresmo has 25 titles to Capriati's 14, 6 tier 1 vs only 2 for Capriati, and 21 Premier titles vs only 6 for Capriati, spent more time ranked #1, was ranked #1 in the middle part of 2 different years unlike Capriati, etc....so this is one of those cases where the monstrous difference in their other stats are enough to overcome just 1 extra major.
Not for me it isn't. I don't place much value on lesser titles when ranking all-time greats.
