Lenglen was so good she won their only match despite seemingly everyone on the planet including her own father saying she couldn't beat her
Lenglen was so good that from 1919-1925 she won pretty much every tournament she chose to enter.

Please consider that

I know the history of the women's game quite well, if you do not like my list, feel free to make your own one is stopping you from doing that you know.
boredone, I feel free to comment your list even when not making an own list.

Lenglen won their only match relatively narrowly.

Lenglen had often weak fields.

I would put Lenglen ahead of Moody but only narrowly.
