Re: Unpopular Opinions

1. Serena is overrated as hell and so is Venus.

2. Same for Graf.

3. Martina HIngis is extremely underrated. (OMG she is prolly inferior to absolute peak Serena; newsflash: so are most people. Venus even at her peak would struggle to beat her as shown in USO 99/00, WMB 00 and helpless when she is off her game (AO 01)

4. Martina Navratilova should be undisputed GOAT.

I think most people would agree with that

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Unpopular Opinions

Ivanovic and Jankovic will win a women's doubles Slam together before their careers end.

Getting double bageled in the final would be 500 times more humiliating though as there would be 500 times as many people watching.

Re: Unpopular Opinions

I think Rezai deserves to be in the Top 10.

Re: Unpopular Opinions

People who discuss court speed issues tend to go into analytical overdrive that quickly degenerates into pointless, hair-splitting discussions that give way too much weight to insignificant factors such as altitude of the venue, atmospheric conditions, time of day, wear and tear of the court surface after a week of play... Conditions (humidity etc.), if extreme, have an impact on the way (red) clay courts play, and that's pretty much it. And there's Bogotá. Everything else isn't really relevant; the court surface is either quick or slow and that's that.

Re: Unpopular Opinions

Venus, even at her peak, has never been better than Serena.

Maria Sharapova is only seen as overrated by some b/c of the way she was hypes after winning Wimbledon in 2004. As far as talent and ability goes, I feel she has lived up to her talent level. Perhaps she could do better if her nerves weren't so shot sometimes, but that's a big if....

Re: Unpopular Opinions

Serena Williams OWNS an apology for the USTA for her LIES in that NY article where she claimed there's been conspiracies to stop her from winning USO in the past.

Its now a FACT that it was SHE who acted poorly in matches that did not go her way. A 4th title proves her and her stans WRONG...again!!!

Re: Unpopular Opinions

Justine Henin's retirement days before RG 08 as 3 years reigning champ and heavy favourite is one of the strangest and most suspicious events in sports in a very long time.

I feel like these are both pretty popular opinions...

Re: Unpopular Opinions

Kournikova's game is underrated. Her looks gave her millions but kinda messed up what people think about her game

Not at all . I was genuinely happy when she won Olympcis and I thinks its great for the sport to have her still on top in this weak-ass era with no stars. I just think she needs to apologies for her lies. That's all.

Re: Unpopular Opinions

Smashnova would probably be top10 had she played today, most likely peak at top5, with at least a single SF run in a slam, high chances at AO or RG, but USO isn't out of the question either.
she would have reached the QF+, had she not crammped up against Dementieva when the later went on to reach the finals.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
