What decade? The 2010s? Well, Venus is leading the race this year, with Jankovic close behind.

Re: Who is the best female tennis player of the decade?

That one American chick who, from 2000-2009, won:
Fed Cup
Olympic Doubles (x2)
Career Grand Slam (singles & doubles [completed CGS in doubles, had won FO in 1999])
Won 4 singles majors in a row (10 total)
Won 8 doubled majors
Reached 5 straight major finals and won 5 of 6.
Won Miami a record-tying 5 times in 7 years


I can't remember her name though

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

Re: Who is the best female tennis player of the decade?

Is this poll necessary?

What's with all the poll spamming?

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Not true. A decade is an arbitrary period of 10 years. Generally we use it for 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, etc. so the period in question is 2000-2009.

LOL yeah, I think her name is Serena? She's pretty good. Maybe she is the best of the decade?

Re: Who is the best female tennis player of the decade?

A couple of years ago before she retired one could have made a very decent case for Henin, although I would probably have opted for Serena by a whisker but now the question is no longer even worthy of debate. Serena is now so head and shoulders above everyone else over the last decade that honestly it would require someone very biased not to acknowledge it.
