Re: "Every generation is better than the previous one. The game is always evolving"
These threads always end up in pointless and endless speculation with unbearable theorizing about "peak" Graf vs "peak" Serena and so on. Things that are impossible to know, as they are never going to happen and belong to different eras, with different training methods, materials..etc. What I am sure, though, is that the actual WTA sucks, just take a look to the players beyond the top 6. Anything can happen. Sloane is the new, and seemingly only, star that is being talked or hyped about. Inconsistency a plenty, some laughable players at the top 10. I donīt know if peak Conchita beats peak Li, or peak Pierce beats peak Kvitova, but for sure the 90īs was a golden era in terms of consistent quality players all over the top 20. Arantxa, Seles, Graf, and later era Hingins, Pova, Serena. Those were the real new stars, all winning slams being under 20. Where has all that gone?
