Is there a Big 4 anymore? Or is it just big 2??
I'll try to keep it short...
I believe(and hope) that Venus has more slams in her, that she has a lot more deep runs.. however, when do we (as both fans and spectators) decide that she is no longer cream of the crop?
Additionally, Henin has not won a slam a slam since 2007.. and she's not racking up big titles anymore. I know she's only been back a year, but there are no signs like there were for Kim. Even her 2010 AO final was a scrap and claw affair.
Kim, Justine, Venus and Serena were deemed the big 4 not b/c they had the most talent.. but b/c of results. They were constantly winning slams, in finals, in semi's, and in non-slams wherever they contested they were the ones to beat.
But those results aren't there anymore... at least for the moment.
When do we decide that Venus and Henin aren't on the level of Kim and Serena anymore? or even close? When does it become Serena (+Kim) and everyone else?
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.
When will you learn that "pushers" never make it past the club level, let alone #1 on the WTA computer? Will it be too late?
