Who deserves of the "Queen" title most?

For me it's Monica Seles who goes down by the title most appropriately.
She has every thing that the title requires for someone to achieve; grace, class, strength, talent, beauty, carisma and personality.

I dunno, I would say Venus. I like how Queen V sounds.

For me Venus has all the qualities you list. I think the title 'queen' should be subjective and it is. it best describes everyone's favourite.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Until one of them is actually the crowned head of state, it just seems sort of weird and worshippy to call them by that name.

Yeah but calling your fave "queen" is a much better symbol of adoration than say, calling her "bulldog" or "spike" or "grit."

Venus, Monica abdicated the throne many moons ago.



"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
