Margaret Court is the greatest tennis player of all time

Postby Squire » 13 Jan 2020, 18:14

Her record is unsurpassed whether or not Serena Williams, 23 grand slam titles, wins any more titles. Roger Federer has only 20.

[1] 24 singles grand slam titles,
[2] 19 doubles grand slam titles,
[3] 21 mixed doubles grand slam titles,
[4] 192 singles titles (Serena Williams has only 73)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Court_career_statistics#Women's_doubles

This is a list of the main career statistics of Australian former tennis player Margaret Court. She won 64 Grand Slam events (24 singles, 19 doubles, 21 mixed doubles), which is a record for a male or female player. Her 24 Grand Slam singles titles and 21 in mixed doubles are also all-time records for both sexes. She achieved a career Grand Slam in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. She is one of three women to have achieved the Grand Slam in singles (alongside Steffi Graf and Maureen Connolly), and is the only woman to have achieved the mixed doubles Grand Slam, which she did twice.

Court won more than half of the Grand Slam singles tournaments she played (24 of 47). She won 192 singles titles before and after the Open Era, an all-time record.[1] Her career singles win-loss record was 1,177-106, for a winning percentage of 91.74 percent on all surfaces (hard, clay, grass, carpet), is also an all-time record. She won at least 100 singles matches in 1965 (113-8), 1968 (107-12), 1969 (104-6),[2] 1970 (110-6),[3] and 1973 (108-6).[4] She won more than 80 percent of her singles matches against top 10 players (297-73) and was the year-end top ranked player seven times.

I don't agree with her politics, but she certainly was a great player

She has become crotchety in her old age. Happens to bigots. They get more bigoted as they get older.

She would have been playing against lesbians like Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova in her time. There were probably others as well.

She played Martina Navratilova many times, including grand slam finals.

I've never understood why anyone would listen to a sports person about politics....

Crotchety?

Ah, no.

She's actually quite insane (similar to that Folau dickhead).

Sure, she was great at tennis, but now she's a total nut-job.

It appears it’s the odd members in a society that are the talented ones.

Especially a certain group, who use this logic as justification for their abnormal behaviour.

It’s not that simple. She belongs to a group who suffer from a form of groupthink that can be more dangerous and more infectious than many forms of insanity. Besides, she’s totally ignorant, as are the members of her church, of the last 200 years of biblical studies. And that’s another tedious topic for another thread.
Groupthink will destroy us all.

Nun’s with guns jeez, nuns with feather dusters were bad enough in primary school. Cane handle, fluffy top. Used to “punish” bad boys by hitting them on the backs of their legs with the handles of the feather dusters. Criminal really.
