You kidding..she should be top by far...her speed and ability to change direction will never be topped. The benchmark. Miss her like crazy

Who makes these lists up! Serena top? You must be struggling with your sight..she is 3 stone overweight, she is cumbersome about the court. Steffi had the power too but the skills to cope with it. Absolutely the best ever
