Serena has the most fearsome serve -- i.e. the most important stroke -- in women's tennis history, and it would be the case even if everyone used the same technology. (She uses natural gut strings by the way.)
Bold part uncertain, not true at all, he can't know how other generation of players would fare.
Also Graf's forehand certainly won Steffi much more points and matches outright than Serena, a lot of people seem to forget.
She is the best athlete in women's tennis history, likely the fastest and the strongest.
Strongest yes, fastest LOL, she is not even in the league of Graf/Sanchez Vicario for crying out loud.
Probably briefly during 2002 she held that kind of on court speed, but mostly Serena looks in trouble when she is forced to move around the court.
And she competes as well as any athlete -- not tennis player; athlete -- you'll ever come across.
This is one of the most laughable quotes ever, Serena who has indeed TANKED tons of lower Tier events in her carreer? Seriously?
Day in, day out, she comes way short against the legends of this sport in this category.
But I think it counts for a lot that no one has ever played tennis at a higher level than Serena has.
Here i agree, pretty much with her 2002 level Serena was simply untouchable and her fitness peak allowed oponnents single digit winners in most matches.
