Re: New big 4?

Potentially. The blondest big four too!!! What a difference a generation makes though. The big four of the last decade (WS, henin, clijsters) were perhaps the most athleticaly gifted group ever in womens tennis, as effective defending as they were attacking. With the new big four, they either have great attack, poor defense (shazza, Kvitty) or great defense, pooor offense (wozzy) azarenka falls somewhere in the middle IMO

WOMENS TENNIS FAN FIRST AND FOREMOST.

big support for... Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova, Ana Ivanovic, Vika Azarenka

Except Wozniacki, I agree.

Re: New big 4?

atm, we have a big 1...the rest are nowhere to be found. let's see what march brings. if we end up with even just a Big 2, i'd be pleased with some increased competition.

Re: New big 4?

When you have 5 different slam winners in a row and a 6th who was #1 for that whole 15 months, I dont see a big 4.
2012 is a big 1 so far. Then we'll see as this year goes on

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

if caro makes it to at least the semis of all the next 5 majors, she can start knocking on the door, just like andy.
