No, no! That was a typo. Serena won her first US Open in 1999 of course.

So, the age was unbelieveable, and that's all that counts
Only Monica Seles has also won a GS @ 16

I could care less about 1997. It was 2000-2003 when it was domination at it's best. Also the year the Williams drove Hingis out of the game.

I take it you enjoyed the 2001 Australian Open 'domination' then
