Re: Who is Greater? Venus Williams or Monica Seles

What's with the Venus obssession of late? Is putting Venus in thread titles the only way to guarantee spice?

But if I had to chose I'd say Seles. Seles to me is > Venus, Henin, Hingis, maybe even Serena. To me Seles is also > Graf.

Re: Who is Greater? Venus Williams or Monica Seles

This isn't even fair, Monica is 35 and hasn't played a real match in like 5 years, she's obviously well "passed" her peak and will not win another grand slam, she won't even appear in another draw. Venus' best days are behind her, but she's not as bad off as Monica, not even close.

Monica for a few more months, I hope.

Like with a Chucky, ties go to the Doubles Slam Winner - Queen Vee.

Re: Who is Greater? Venus Williams or Monica Seles

This one is not so clear.

Venus is the better athlete and tennis player.

Monica is the better match player and strategist.

They're equally good at what they do best.

Still, I'm going to vote for Venus because she has more than one Wimbledon title.

Steffi Graf was part of a youth tennis group that was studied from age 12 and then followed, and the scientists called her "the perfect talent" even then. In addition to her many tennis-specific skills, her aerobic capacity was on par with the best distance runners in Europe. --- David Epstein, The Sports Gene

Re: Who is Greater? Venus Williams or Monica Seles

My two faves of all time!

Monica's nine slams trump Venus' seven, but Venus owned Seles (h2h 9-1). Seles only won one match at the Aus Open in 2002 when Venus was injured. She was the favorite for the title that year.

I think Venus will match and maybe surpass Seles before she retires though.

Re: Who is Greater? Venus Williams or Monica Seles

As much as I love Venus, I have to say Monica. However, I think Venus will surpass her in the next two years
