Serena Williams removed from Wikipedia main page

Federer is still there. The WTA is slowly becoming more and more like wheelchair tennis.

Re: Serena Williams removed from Wikipedia main page

Well, Federer achieved GOAT, Serena "just" won another GS. Nothing to do with the consideration of WTA vs. ATP.

Re: Serena Williams removed from Wikipedia main page

Serena wasnt the one who broke the record in mens tennis for most grand slam wins. Its obvious him winning is a massive deal more important then Serena just winning another one.

Like others have said it's because Federer broke a record and Serena won another slam. Has nothing with do with anything else.

It is a good and reliable source to begin your research. If you want to know how many grand slams Serena Williams has won you can find good and reliable information on it. Unless if you're disputing that fact.

Re: Serena Williams removed from Wikipedia main page

Serena WAS on the main page just a few hours ago, this morning.

But they removed her!

It's sexism!

Besides, I think they normally include both the singles champions on the main page.
