Andy Murray: "Serena can be the Federer of the womens' game"

http://andymurray.com/about/news/03-...stions-part-4/


Not sure if this was posted already but nice to see Andy say such nice words about Serena on his website, and just to see that he has some interest in the womens' game in general

well serena was the federer of the womans game before federer was the federer of the mens game, if that makes any sense.

"She’s physically so much stronger than all the other girls."
That's correct. But other players make it up with technique and intelligence.
And that's the reason why she will never be a female Federer, she doesn't have enough skills.

And a female Federer should have a one-handed backhand by definition

Re: Andy Murray: "Serena can be the Federer of the womens' game"

the only hitch here in my opinion is injury. venus, serena's game can be quite physical and more prone to injury, thus they should be very careful in planning the schedule.

are you serious? serena can do everything, really. i used to be skeptical of her net skills, but she was great during the AO.

Federer doesn't have as close a rival as Serena does with Venus when they both play their best

Murray was referring to Federer's dominance and not his game when he said Serena could be like him.

Re: Andy Murray: "Serena can be the Federer of the womens' game"

How can anyone doubt Serena's ability to be the Federer of the women's game. She has lots of skills not only power. She is the only player right now who can do that because she has the ability to dominate on all surfaces. 4 straight grand slams!!! That's something Federer has not done and something Justine will NEVER do!!!!!

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2
