You can put Serena with Sampras in the same cateogry, i rather have Federer and Graf for instance.
Who care what you'll rather do? Who care if you think Serena used AK-47 to threatened her opponents into losing to her? Who cares about your ignorant opinion? You're just another befuddled mind making comment on Serena's game and there have been many of you over the years. Wasn't Serena's career supposed to not last very long because her "game is based on power mostly"?

Haters are everywhere it doesnt matter who the player is. Its human nature, there is alot of lost souls out everywhere.

Serena was probably the first to use angle. But did they noticed?

Evert and especially Seles used them first. However, Serena has mastered the short angle on the forehand and backhand side.

This is a sport where your assets includes athleticism.
Federer has been beaten by both Nadal and Djokovic on pure superior athleticism.

It is no coincidence that Federer started going with loss of pace on his forehand.
His backhand always shaky, so he lost the zip of his forehand shots, it became more easier to challenge him.

But did they noticed this? Serena probably intimidated her opponents into using angle shots on them

Correct.

Prior to Serena the women used to just stand in middle of the baseline and hit the ball straight at each other for the whole match. Until she came along no women in history had ever tried to angle a shot.


Serena also invented the serve.

Before she came along the women used to just toss the ball onto the opponents side.

No. Serena used the gangs of LA to threatened her opponents into conceding all those matches and tournaments to her. She still do.
