Serena Williams is the greatest women's tennis player I have ever seen!

Serena Williams is the greatest women's tennis player I have ever seen! And she's the most devastating, too! I have been fortunate enough to see Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf at their best. And they were truly great. But their best does not match Serena Williams best! Serena has no weaknesses. Navratilova's baseline game was her weakness. And Graf's backhand was her weakness. And neither Martina or Steffi could match Serena's great power from all corner's of the court. That's fact, not fiction!

Serena Williams is the greatest women's tennis player I have ever seen! Venus Williams, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf are next in line in my eyes. I put Venus at her best ahead of Martina and Steffi at their best, because of her all court devastation, superior first serve and incomparable court coverage!

I realize Serena Williams has to dominate for several years to be considered an all tome great. But the Serena Williams of 2002 is the greatest women's tennis player I have ever seen! And I'm glad she is finally fulfilling her immense potential! And figuratively speaking, Serena Williams is by far the most intimidating women's tennis player of all time. I don't think anyone would dispute that! But the good news is Serena seems like a very nice person!

Megan, you're really pulling my leg, aren't you? I think you got into the catnip tonight!

I have never seen Tanner Cochran play. I hope she's half as good as you say she is!

Megan, you're closing in on 700 posts!

She is one of the greats, I wouldn't say she is the greatest though. Steffi was great in her time, so was Navratilova, so was Evert, and imo so was Hingis. When all is said and done I have no doubt that she will go down as one of the greatests, and I fear that the only thing that might hurt her compared to other players is that fact that to often people lump her and Venus together and forget that they are seperate players with seperate achievements.

The-cat, time will tell. Rena is definitely awesome. Let's hope she stays healthy and doesn't get too much sidetracked by fashion design, movie acting and the being sexy mindset.

TennisPower, I agree with you. I hope Serena doesn't get sidetracked either!

Yup... she is definitely one of the best to ever play the game... she doesn't have the resume of Steffi or Navratilova, but her game is definitely up there with them.

I agree Williams Rulez. Serena doesn't have the resume of Navratilova or Graf. And she'll never win the amount of grand slams they did. The depth in women's tennis is much better today than it was 10 or 20 years ago. And that's why Serena won't win 22 grand slam titles like Graf. But Serena is a more intimidating and devastating player than Steffi or Martina ever were!

serena is amazing!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
