I wish Steffi could return and give all these girls a whooping~

I remember how she won 99 FO and Beat Venus to reach Wimbledon 99 finals.

That was a great match between her and Venus and she won 7-5 in the third. Only Steffi can conquer the sisters.

Lindsay has shown the door for Steffi at the Wimby finals. She's wise enough to decide retirement after that 'coz she knows what happens next.

SMARTINA---The Thinking Game!!!!

SERENA---The Goddess in planet Venus.

After beating Venus 7-5 in the third and losing to BA Davey 7-5 6-4 is not so bad~

22 Grandslam...let see if the 3 of them combined(Williams, Davey) can match that in their careers.

Of course not... but this is a different era with more more contenders for slams...

Maybe if you throw in Capriati, Monica and Martina, they can match Steffi...

Well, the sisters are much better players now!!

Lindsay and Martina use to have the sisters number but look at them now. Except Lindsay, Lindsay never had Serenas number...

Venus ~ Serena ~ Nadal

Well, Steff was old and they had their chances against her but she tied Serena and leads Venus.

Venus should have beaten Steffi because she was 19 yo and Steffi was 30.

Anyway, Steffi's record against all the top players is amazing.
She leads everybody and is tied with Serena.

THis reminds me of how Martina N somehow managed to keep her record with Steffi tired, despite most of their matches being played when Martina N was in her late 20's, or 30's.

Amazing stuff.

lucas I am pretty biased towards serena's abbillities and talents but I doubt she would beat Steffi 6:0 6:0

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
