Of course there is, Serena won her 2 slam finals and her Olympics final to boot.

No one said she should be #1.

Typical of the Slamless number 1's (and their fans) setting out a different criteria for judging the best player in the world.

I thought this was already resolved.
Again, who is arguing that Serena should be #1?

Oh Never mind.
You're probably 8 years old too.

There's a big difference between winning 1 and 2 slams considering Pova wins one every 4 years

Re: Safina: Serena must play full year to be real No. 1

Hey now, I received a nice rep from the resident board idiot.



Hey Matt01...
As long as posters make unsubstantiated statements about Serena or her fans, I will be one of the most vocal Serena fans around, as you well know from experience.
I will be direct and blunt, and give it to you straight.
And if you can't handle it, then I suggest this web site: http://www.sesamestreet.org/

The most incredible thing about your rep comment is you speaking about "credibility".

Carry on Matt...carry on.

Yeah, but I thought her near cry-baby face was sorta cute.

What kills me is the effort people like Matt01 put into their badrep lectures, like they're really affecting some deep inward spot in their targets.

Chill with the theatrics, Matt, cuz the only ones who give a shit are other nitwits like you.
