Re: GOAT #1 in 2003: Serena or Justine*?

This was the year of Justine, honestly. Though had Serena played the USO....maybe Justine may not have won that one.

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Aussie Kim, Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie

Was Serena's Knee Operation Necessary after Wimbledon?

Re: GOAT #1 in 2003: Serena or Justine*?

Why is this a multiple choice poll?

(Serena, BTW. 2/3 is better than 2/4, really. Plus neither Williams, the dominant players at that time played the USO, so... Yeah.)

Re: GOAT #1 in 2003: Serena or Justine*?

It is pretty stupid to vote someone based on a "what if" for injury. Injuries are part of the sport. If you start doing that Henin was really the dominant #1 in 2004 since she would have won everything without her viral infection, Graf is the dominant #1 of 1997 since Hingis never would have risen to the top so soon without her injury problems, Sharpova is the real #1 for 2008 as she probably would have ended up with the best overall year without her injuries even if she didnt win another slam.

The stats as it is are clearly in Henin's favor even though both won 2 slams.

Re: GOAT #1 in 2003: Serena or Justine*?

I respect Juju but she hardly beat serena in RG her best surface
And was spanked by serena at Wimbledon

No way she would have won the USO (Hard court ) with serena in the draw that year

Serena for me

God couldn't have made a better human being than Michael Jackson
Serena Williams : Greatest Player of All Times .

Re: GOAT #1 in 2003: Serena or Justine*?

Serena would have won Roland Garros if someone´s hand hadn´t show up in that semi...

Serena was the true number 1 that year, no doubt about it!



Ivanovic - Görges - Agnieszka - Li - Bencic

Venus - Kvitova - Golden Flowers - A.K. Schmiedlova - Stephens - Stosur - Woz
