Hoping some of this discussion leads to a thread about Alice Marble, Pauline Betz, Shirley Fry, Margaret Osbourne DuPont, Louise Brough, Doris Hart, Althea Gibson among others.
But to answer your question, I'm mystified how folks talk about the Graf-Seles rivalry as though it culminated into a historic note. Given what we witnessed with Navratilova-Evert, theirs seems quite insignificant. While I agree that it would be prudent to keep on-topic in this thread (Graf-Seles), historically-speaking it is an exercise of futility.
