Who Is The Greatest: Roger Federer Or Steffi Graf?

Whenever world number one Roger Federer of Switzerland loses a
tennis match, it's a shock and a major upset, as he so dominates the game of tennis today. But not long ago, in the late 80's and early 90's another
player who I think was even greater than Federer was more or less unstoppable when she was on her game, Steffi Graf of Germany.
I give Graf the edge as the best tennis player ever over Federer in part due to her better clay court record, more impressive career record and total
number of grand slams won. I also think Venus or Serena Williams could in theory claim the best ever; should one sister outplay the other for a period of
years which is unlikely as they both are excellent players.
