Serena Williams...

By winning the 2010 Australian Open, became only the second female player (and third player overall) to win at least one grand slam singles title in three different decades (1990s, 2000s, 2010s), tied with Martina Navratilova (1970s, 1980s, 1990s) in the women's game, and in the men's game Ken Rosewall (1950s, 1960s, 1970s).

Re: Serena Williams...

GOATrena is only tennis player ever which won GS titles in three different decades, two different centuries and two different millenniums in same time

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: Serena Williams...

Impressive..and that's why she's the greatest of gen post-Graf. She weathered all the storms: veterans, comteporaries and youngsters...and kept winning.

Always bet on black!
