Some players did it before, you know...

Quel prix de mon amour! Il craint des pleurs qu'il m'oblige à répandre . Insensible au feu le plus tendre dont un coeur ait brûlé jamais , quand mes soupirs ne peuvent suspendre l'injustice de ses projets . Il fuit pour ne les pas entendre.

Re: Serena's won the past 3 out of 4 slams.

Has this period been as good as Henin's recent period of dominance (07'/08).
Justine- (2 slams, 1 semi, 1/4)Heaven knows how many titles on the wta tour including YEC, and practically the entire period at no.1 vs Serena- 3 slams, 1/4 and a 12 or so week (?) stint at no.1?

I really don't know, I mean Henin was SOOOOO fabulous during that period of 4 slams, whereas Serena HASN'T been EXCEPTfor the slams. Then again, everyone remembers the slams. Not much else.

Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: Serena's won the past 3 out of 4 slams.

Why do people keep trying to compare Serena to Henin? I just don't get it. At Serena's best she held ALL FOUR GRAND SLAMS. The last female to do that was Steffi Graf, FUCKING STEFFI GRAF like 20 FUCKING YEARS AGO. It's wonderful that Serena is holding 3 of the 4 GS. And that's the second time she's done that.

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.

I just don't see Serena losing on Grass or Hard in the slams these days. Great to see her free flowing again!
