What kind of talk is that? If everytime a player is clearly the best she should retire Evert should have retired in 1974, Navratilova in 1982 and Graf in 1987. I for one am grateful for their careers, as I am for Serena's. And what's the problem of a thirty year old being the best player in the world? The others just have to raise their level, and Vika just did. She came within one or two points of winning.
