You seem as though you are keeping charts of all the disagreements and points made.
[I'm sorry. Not you, In the Zone. DarrinBaker00.]
In any case, people can be wrong on some points and right on others. That is human.
Frankly, the points Evert made in her letter to Serena were about things she values and not necessarily things that Serena values. Therefore, the main point of her open letter was to score publicity for her magazine. She's no different than Chris Chase (Yahoo) in that respect, except she has more tennis knowledge than he does.
The ordeal about the open letter was so blown out of proportion by some fans that it did not require anyone to "keep score"...especially since some people still love to say "Chris hates Serena".
Chris's letter to Serena was a genuine outreach to try and save women's tennis. She knew that women's tennis needed superstars, and that there is none bigger than Serena Williams. She also knew that Serena had a chance to make a push to place herself among the GOATs. She was right in everything she said. The WTA tour is falling apart and Serena has missed her chance to be truly considered alongside Martina, Margaret, Steffi, and Chrissie. In Chris's day older players reached out to help the younger players in time of need.
When it comes to Serena being compared to Nav and Graf (which Chris so modestly left herself out...once again being Chrissie America or Little Miss Perfect), when playing her best tennis, or anywhere near her best for that matter, Serena can hold her own against any of those ladies.
However, Serena was rarely at or around her best in her career. You simply cannot
compare someone who has played 593 matches and lost 103, with someone who has played 1448
matches and lost only 144 (Chris)
or someone who has played 1661 singles matches, and 890 doubles matches (Navratilova)
(and I'm guessing more as these are only according to the WTA site) and won 167 singles titles
compared to Serena's 39
You can say what you want about different generations and the evolution of the difficulty of the game, but take a look at Martina Nav in her prime and tell me she didn't train her butt off. I'm not buying it.
Serena is the greatest of her generation, there is no disputing that. She simply did not take enough interest in the game to be considered anything more. There's no shame in that, especially if she is happy with her decision to have her own personal life.
