Your point about Venus is well taken Informative
I wasn't comparing their overall careers though. I am saying Serena has acheived what no one else since Hingis has-dominance, as defined by what truly counts, grand slams. One year dominance, maybe no more, but still she's miles above her competition for the year.
I feel safe in asserting Serena's dominance, even if temporary. 3 slams in one year is a magical number. With slams one less slam would still leave you tied or ahead of everyone else for the year. Once you acheive 3 slams no one else can even claim to be #1, even on the WTA's wretched computer. Remember how even though Venus had two slams in both 2000 and 2001 she wasn't computer #1? Now we'll have a year end computer #1 everyone can agree on
Also, as grand as 2000-1 were for Venus, she failed to crack the tough nut of the French Open. The difference in tour titles isn't a big factor to me. If we start counting tour titles then Venus and Serena are miles behind Hingis. As Johny Mac would say, "You cannot be serious".
Venus may well bounce back. Davenport could be a factor too, as she pushed Serena more than her sister did at the Open. For now though, Serena is dominant. She's earned it
BTW, some press have said Serena is the 5th female to win the French-Wimbledon-Aussie combo. Not true.
Wills(28-29), Connolly(53), Court(70), King (72), Navratilova(84), and Graf (88,93,95-6) makes six before Serena.
