Serena Williams = Martina Navratilova
Stop. There's a man with a gun pointed at your head. If you just write the first thing that comes to mind, he'll shoot.
The comparison wasn't my idea.
Okay, the sniper's gone. You can move.
Pam Shriver, during the Davenport match, made the comparison noting that during Martina's run in 85 and into 86, she had done very well on clay, and Serena looked like Martina playing on clay during that period.
That's the first time I ever heard a player compared to Martina and it didn't seem absurd. Of course, she wasn't comparing Serena to CHRIS EVERT on clay. In a way, an odd observation.
Serena, on her worst surface, looks like Navratilova playing on HER worst surface.
But Pam Shriver saw more of Navratilova on a tennis court than anyone. If anyone can say that w/o being laughed out of the building, its her.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
