Of course. Look at Arthur Ashe and what he accomplished in tennis. EACH Williams has done more in a single year than that. Not to knock Ashe he was a great human but the sisters also deserve their place. Even if you ignore their trailblazing ways, they are by far the best players to come out of America ever! I mean put a Williams against even the vaunted Chrissy or Helen Wills and there is no doubt about who would win.

Serena and Markus together forever

Lenglen didn't even play in the open era genius. Of course Mandlikova is better. And Graf better than her. And Serena and Venus better than her.

Yeah, the next big name up will be Navratilova or Sampras surely?

I was practicing with Venus in Florida, and she was just killing me. I'm kind of glad she didn't make it, for my sake (laughter). You can't sleep on her because she's playing unbelievable. I got to take my chance now while she's out because when she's coming back, she's really playing like she's playing with no fear and she's practicing really hard. Yeah, she's playing unbelievable. > Serena Williams AO '07

Talent is just a fake word people use to comfort themselves when they've lost. Everyone thinks their fave is the most 'talented', but only one player wins a match and that player is better regardless of potential 'talent'. You can't measure talent, but you can see which players are better. I don't buy the logic that one player can be more talented but lose when it counts to a less 'talented' player. It's too convenient. Serena and Venus are plain better and maybe in the future there may be players better than them, but for now, they are the best female American players ever.

wow, this is your most post on this thread , suzanne was more talented than mandlikova and not only on words on paper too, clijsters has a negative record against craybas and she isnt more talented than her, if you see that one player is better it means she is more talented,and i think justine could say a few things about who is the better player this year and for the last 4 or 5 years (after serenas peak)
