Re: Is there a case for considering Seles to be greater than Serena?
I completely agree.
Monica, like Hingis, won when young, carefree and directed and supported by a very close parent. When they matured and the pains of life got in the way they couldn't cope mentally. They were winners when everything was going well.
Serena has proven she can overcome traumas, comeback and be better than before. Winning slams at a very early age is not a sign of overall greatness. It's a burst of prodigious talent. Serena's winning ways has spanned decades, seeing off players who came after her and have since retired! She's beaten all her rivals bar none. There's no comparison really.
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.
