Very true. Graf is #1 all time, Serena is #2, and Navratilova is a strong #3. Most everyone realizes that. Serena needs the Grand Slam to surpass Graf, a prerequisite for any female or male GOAT. In terms of playing abiilty Serena is the best of all, above Graf, and the great Graf herself has admited this, but the lack of the Grand Slam is the only thing keeping her from GOAT status.
