I actually LOVE these kinds of threads because OPs wind up getting pwned in the end...like Vee and Rena's opponents.
Anyway, didn't Serena wax Justine's azz before she retired?

Fact is, champions demonstrate their championship character by making comebacks, or reclaiming that champion status.
There is always new talent coming up, and there is always a lull in between...in any sport.
Let's not disrespect these players when they clearly show us great matches like this past USO.
Now I'm waiting for the perennial "The Williams Sisters Will Never Win Another Slam"
That thread is about due isn't it?
