Dig Down Deep Now...6 different finalists
With the constant talk about the continuing lack of depth in Women's tennis these days, everyone seems to have missed, or ignored, depending on preference, the fact that 6 different women have now made the fianls of the first three majors of the year. Whereas, on the mens side Federer is highly likely to appear in all three and Nadal is odds on favorite to appear in 2 of three. I admitt that the mens finals have been of better quality, but still, the depth in womens tennis is growing all the time.
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.
