Re: Did the Williams sisters dominate ...
The truth is, every player accomplishes what he or she accomplishes. There are those today who say Federer is only winning so often because of weak competition.
And Graf only won so many slams because Seles was taken out by the stabbing.
The argument is used most often by her detractors about Hingis, but it is no more valid there, either. In fact, one could say that had the Hingis who beat Venus 6-1, 6-1 at the AO in 2001 not started to undergo injury problems, including the ankle surgery that took her out at the end of that year and the second ankle surgery that forced her to miss two slams in 2002, maybe the Williams sisters would not have done as well that year, either.
But these are all just ifs. Federer has won what he has won, so have Graf, Seles, Hingis, and the Willies. Claiming any of it was due to weak competition is pretty silly.
