Hi Alois

Who is the greatest of all time in the women? I think it would be a close fight between deng yaping and zhang yining and I love to hear your thoughts.

Hi Yap,

For me it is Deng Yaping. 

2 Olympic Singles Gold medals, 3 World Singles Gold medals, 1 World Cup

Zhang Yining

2 Olympic Gold medals, 2 World Singles Gold medals, 4 World Cups

I feel that Deng Yaping was more dominant in her time at the top.

However, there is Angelica Rozeanu who won 6 World singles championships in a row between 1950 and 1955... What about her... in a time before Olympics and World Cups.

Would love to hear other peoples thoughts.
