Prediction: Serena Will Surpass Federer in Slam Count

She's just better mentally. You'd never see her lose to anyone 5 or 6 times in a row.

Possible, but you have to consider the competition. No comparison.

Re: Prediction: Serena Will Surpass Federer in Slam Count

Being a part time player who can come back from taking huge breaks to slam winning form in a couple of months in a tour full of talentless ball bashers surely helps Serena. She was about to lose to Henin 4 times in a row in 2007 before she decided to withdraw from the YEC. Who knows what would have happened if Justine had not started 2007 late. Probably 5 in a row.

And Federer isn't her rival. There are women who are more accomplished than Federer that she needs to surpass.

Federer will win at least 2 more GS , and it means Serena has to win this US Open + 5 more Slams to surpass him...

Serena had stiffer competition in her peak than Federer did in hers. READ: Roddick and Nadal when he could only play on clay. Serena had Venus and Capriati in their primes and supporting cast of Davenport, Hingis and the Belgians.

And no it wouldn't have been 5 in a row because they met at the beginning of Justine's 2007 and guess who won.

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.

Meaningless comparison.
Federer's legacy is his slam count and his incredible consistency.

Roger's game is a work of art, Serena's a work of serve, simple as that

Re: Prediction: Serena Will Surpass Federer in Slam Count

Now that Henin and Clijsters have retired, Serena has a massive head to head advantage over everyone else and shall win 22 or 23 slams whereas Federer shall end up with 17 or 18 slams.

Roger was never dominated by his major Austrian lefty rival: Bammer for Serena, probably Melzer for Roger.

This argument will lead to men vs women and you know where that goes. There is no comparison.

As for the second part, that's why I said if Justine hadn't started late. Serena barely escaped in Miami final thanks to a rusty Henin. Without Miami or not Serena was too scared to get another beat down at the YEC so she withdrew and Bartoli got double bageled instead
