I know this is an unusual comparision but who do you believe ranks higher all time- Jennifer Capriati or Virginia Wade. Both have 3 slam titles which is why I thought it would be an interesting question. For me it is Wade by far. Capriati is the worst player in history to win 3 slams and one of the worst to even win 2 or more slams IMO. Wade won Wimbledon and the U.S Open, the big 2 slams, and unlike Capriati she beat the best players to win her slams. Despite being owned by her biggest rivals her whole career- Court, Evert, Goolagong, and King, kind of similar to how Capriati is owned by the big guns of her day Wade was as well in truth, she still beat the best to win her biggest tournaments. King in the U.S Open final in 1968 when King was the dominant #1 that year, Evert in the Wimbledon semis of 1977 when Evert was the dominant #1 at the time, and Goolagong in the Australian Open final in 1972 when Evonne entered the year as the defacto World #1 after winning the French and Wimbledon titles in 1971. Capriati did not beat Venus to win any of her slams, and Venus was considered the best player in the world at the time of each of Capriati's 3 majors (and Capriati has also never beaten Venus). At the 2002 Australian Opens she also did not have to beat Davenport or Serena, the next 2 best players in the world at the time after Venus, and players Capriati generally does very poorly against. At the 2001 French Open she didnt have to play any of Seles, Pierce, Davenport, Venus, or Mauresmo, the players who were either the best players in the world at the time (Venus and Davenport) or the best players on that surface at the time (Seles, Pierce, Mauresmo). Wade was far more consistent throughout her career, and even showed more longevity. Neither was ever a dominant player, truly part of the biggest two players rivalry at the top of the womens game, and certainly never truly the defacto #1, so they cancel each other out there.
