Her level is pretty much close to what it was when she held all four of the majors in 2002-03 which is something I never thought we'd see again. I don't think she'll surpass Steffi's record of 22 majors (although she wants to keep going until Rio so it's not entirely impossible!) but I'm sure she'll surpass Navratilova and Evert's tally of 18.
And huge kudos to Rafa too, who has reached the finals at every tournament he's played since coming back from seven/eight months out with knee injuries in Feb.
In 1988 Steffi Graf won the Grand Slam and the Olympics - the Golden Slam - only singles one ever. Don't know about the year-end championship but I would suspect she won that as well - who was gonna beat her?
