Fair enough...I don't have a problem with it actually. '07 Juju was a thorn in Serena's side. No problemos accepting that.

Re: Were you guys satisfied by Sharapova and Azarenka this year?

her results are great but I'm not satisfied with those thrashing Maria's received like today's

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

I am very satisfied with Vika's results. Also she didnt allow Serena to overshadow her by playing an incredible USO final and a super competitive Wimbledon semis

For her standards, BB is doing well too

2012 & 2013 AO Champion - Winnerenka

2012 & 2013 USO Finalist - Chokerenka

In Henin's only loss that year she had something like a 6-0, 5-3 lead and choked, never should have lost even that one. Henin is one of my least favorite players because she is a shameful and remorseful cheater, and since she disgraced herself and women athletes by marrying a gay gold digger who milked her for years, but still must admit never has there been a year Serena was a top player that any chief rival dominated her to the extent Henin did Serena that year. As for Henin not beating Serena much on non clay surfaces, Henin did get to play Serena in her own prime much at all, they didnt play a single match from 2004-2006, and didnt play on a hard court in 2003. 2007 was her only shot of beating Serena on hard courts in her prime, as it was the only times they played. Yeah that wasnt Serena's best ever either, but that is the point, their primes didnt even intersect much, however they did play often on various courts in 2001-2002 when Serena was much closer to her best, so she had an unfair advantage in that sense. The matchup is still a bit of an unknown, but Justine totally dominating Serena on one surface (clay), totally dominating her for a whole year both were slam winners and top players (2007), and unquestionably being above her at all times in the game for a 5 year span (late 2003 until she retired in 2008) is still more head to head victory vs Serena than any player she faced in her career managed.

Ah the famous choke..but it ain't like that was Serena's first time coming back against an elite player, soo..

Juju had her moments after '03, but since Serena most soo much in those years, it ain't saying much that Juju was better over that period of time.

Always bet on black!

Re: Were you guys satisfied by Sharapova and Azarenka this year?

Henin h2h against Serena is only close because of clay. Serena still leads in their h2h!

Henin was lucky Serena was returning in 2007, after having a long time out of the tennis world. It's unfortunate neither have met each other when they were on their peak, but I still believe Serena would win.

Either way, back on topic both Vika & Sharapova had a great year! Vika especially! I love Vika now, but I have to say what Serena accomplished, overshadows all of their success.

Yes. But satisfied is a very conservative word that says a lot.

Re: Were you guys satisfied by Sharapova and Azarenka this year?

I think both have done a great job at 'taming' 99% of the tour. Very consistent and mentally they are always engaged. But I think their consistency has more to do with the inconsistency of the rest of the field. The top ten apart from Aga, Sara and Angie have been so up and down. I think 2012 season was boring tbh as exciting players like Kvitova, Li, Stosur and Bartoli really struggled in keeping their levels consistently high.

And tbh Sharapova was awful in finals, always seemed to play the wrong game plan and look like the final was actually her first match of the tournament!!
