Serena joins rare company with AO win

AO- Serena Williams 5
FO-Chris Evert 7
W-Martina Navratilova 9 (DAYUM!)
USO-Chris Evert 6

She's won more Australian Open Womens Singles Titles than any other woman in the Open Era. Is it time to give her legendary status?

-one of those "bad" Williams fans that everyone keeps talking about

Re: Serena joins rare company with AO win

Before someone comes into your thread bringing up Court- we are talking most slams in the "OPEN ERA"...

Before it's all said and done I can envision one or two more. I'd love for her to inflate that count. Actually the only slam I want more is the French, outside of that I'd be happy if she continued adding Oz titles to her collection.

Re: Serena joins rare company with AO win

Thanks for the correction. Her AO titles kinda crept up on me too. I remember how mad about her losing to Likhotseva a few years back @ the AO as she came in totally unprepared. She's come a long, long way.

"Lengendary"?
You have to win more than 20 singles slam titles in the open era to be called that.
Everything else is only "very good".

Re: Serena joins rare company with AO win

She is a legend already. She's in rarified air only touched by Graf, Evert and Navratilova in the Open Era.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

You clearly have NO knowledge of tennis whatsoever.

Must call Navvie and tell her she's just 'Very good' I'm sure that'll go down well.

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. 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.
