Yeah, because she's really in Lindsay's league.

Lindsay has 3 slams, 1 YEC, 1 Olympics Gold Medal, 11 Tier 1 titles, 55 overall career titles, and 98 weeks at #1.

if she is, then it's her own fault. lindsay wasn't the most charismatic player to hit the court, and her negative attitude cost her a much more auspicious career and probably the respect of the general tennis community.

She wasn't not charasmatic. She just wan't an attention seeker like a lot of other players.

Arantxa Sanchez Vicario.

Some people think of her as this opportunistic weaponless pusher who just ran around retreiving and caught Steffi on off days.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I think Serena is really unappreciated. Her outstanding results are being overshadowed because people can only think of some events
