She's right! But honestly, I think Serena has been the toughest opponent for most players over the last 12/13 years

She's the only honest 4 slam winner in the last 15 yrs ...speaks the truth & speaks from her heart, no wonder she's so respected by her fellow players

I always thought it was Justine, because of the slams finals drubbings.

Re: Kim Clijsters says Serena Williams was her toughest opponent of her career

Kim loved tennis and managed a family with being a pro as well as she could in her second career. She has always been honest without being rude.

No doubt Serena was her toughest match up, Kim could draw more errors out of Venus and Henin only ever had a mental edge for about 6 months and only in slam finals.

She's retired. She can say these sort of things now.

Definitely. That match prevented her from winning a slam in 03 IMO.

Makes sense. Serena leads their H2H and never needed cheating or luck to win any of their matches.
