oldest or youngest?

would you rather be the oldest winner of a grand slam, or the youngest of them?
and of course...why?

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Oldest, because lifes not over once you hit 20!! (it once used to be 30 and soon it will be 15 the way things are going!!). Also with age come maturity and I think youd win because you have learnt how to play and tactics from experience.

Youngest is good to kick start your career and make a splash, but the only thing with that is if your too quick to the top you must keep consistancy up or be known as a one hit wonder. (I think maria is to be a good example of keeping consistancy as she has the ability to keep it for a while yet and if anything improve even more but time will tell)

Oldest. Players are always getting younger...someone would quickly snatch the title...it would take longer for another person who's older to win it...plus, what a way to go out...

When you say love
Is a simple chemical reaction
Can't say I agree
Cause my chemicals
Left me a beautiful disaster
Still love's all I see

So I'm taking these pills for to fill up my soul
And I'm drinking them down with cheap alcohol
And you'd be inclined to be mine for the taking
And part of this terrible mess that I'm making
But you...you're the catalyst

I would rather be youngest so I can capitalize and get rich quick and then if my career doesnt pan out I can live on my winnings and endorsements I made while big.

Well, the new pups keep the sport alive and healthy, but I still favour my old faves!

probably oldest because really young grand slam winners doj't usually have as much success as adults (i.e. Hingis, Seles, Tracy Austin, etc.)
