I agree with commentators. She has been the real Heavy of this sport for like 12 years. Like it or not. I don´t

Re: Is Serena the Only Heavyweight?

Well whatever said and done, Rena is physically one of the most imposing players. Her physique is such - credit to her for getting it this way.

If there is any insinuation that her game is based on strength rather than skill, then that would be rather stupid of the person insinuating it because Serena is one of the most intelligent players on court.
