Re: If serena retired right now....
How long is your list of 'all-time' greats?
If your list is Court, Graf, Willis Moody, Evert, Navratilova, King, then no, Serena doesn't belong in that group. But if you're gonna add any other player, Serena's current career accomplishments measure up.
So if you're saying Connolly, or Seles, or Goolagong or Bueno was an all-time great, Serena is too. Serena has had, without question, one of the ten best careers in the history of the sport. But she's not up there with 'The Big Six'. Yet.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
