Re: Oh please Graf was better than Serena
Ok, I will!
Serena has repeatedly come back and won slams, including Wimbledon and Olympic Golds in singles and doublesback to back from: murder of her sister, near fatal injuries, beating all the top players to do so. Before her last injury which could have cost her her life she was No 1 and destroying the field. Her latest massive achievement has been in her 30s with no signs of her not continuing to win slams if she keeps motivated.
Steffi profitted from one of the most terrible incidents in tennis allowing her to nearly double her slam tally. Not so with Serena who won when there was a full field.
Both are great, but Serena (and Venus) also had each other to compete against and are truly iconic beyond the sport itself. I think their impact on and off the court is more than any other female tennis players.
Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.
Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
