View Full Version : If you were Serena, would you trade any of your 8 Slams for Venus' 5 Wimby titles?

Jul 5th, 2008, 04:28 PM
If you are in Serena's shoes, do you prefer to have your current 8 Slams, or trade any / all of them for the 5 Wimby titles Venus has?

(P.S: This is not a hate thread, so try not to start any bullshitting).

Personally I wouldn't, 8 GS titles (winning at least once at all four) over Vee's 7 GS titles is enough for me.

Jul 5th, 2008, 04:31 PM
8 for me. I prefer variety. At least one of everything shows that you are a true all-round player.

Jul 5th, 2008, 04:32 PM
No, its three more plus a career slam. Few of the greats have managed to win all four.

Jul 5th, 2008, 04:32 PM
No her 8 is good for her! and Venus 5 Wimbledons are good for her!

Serena Slam would still beat about 20 Wimbledons.

But 5 Wimbledons is amazing. :inlove: :hearts:

Jul 5th, 2008, 04:33 PM
Not the French, since its the only one she has and she has to keep all 4 that were part of the Serena Slam, everything else is up for grabs. :lol:

But Wimby is the ultimate.

I'd trade a couple of Aussies for a Wimby. :tape:

Maybe one AO title for Wimby, but nothing more.
She has 2 Wim titles herself.

A Grand Slam is a Grand Slam, doesn't matter where it's won.

Um it depends.

Serena Slam trumps them all.

But I would happily give up US Open '99, Wimbledon '03, Australian Opens '05 and '07. With the last, as long as I get to give Maria Sharapova another beatdown in a slam final. :devil:

I think Serena Slam is special. Also 5+ Wimbledons is special in its own way.

"I rather have 8 titles than 5 Wimby titles!" although I clicked in the wrong option. O_o

Jul 5th, 2008, 05:12 PM
I'd swap an AO for a Wimbledon title but overall 8 titles are better than 5...or 7 for that matter. Having the slam is also just huge. 5 Wimbledons is a milestone, a monumental achievement but 8 which includes a grand slam is still better.

Jul 5th, 2008, 05:14 PM
Serena's total slams and where they've come are impressive and Venus' five Wimbledons are also impressive. Both proud achievements.

Jul 5th, 2008, 05:27 PM
i'd rather keep all 8 :shrug: she has 2 wimby titles of her own as well as 1 of each so no need to trade :shrug:

Jul 5th, 2008, 05:32 PM
Now a better question is would Venus trade 4 of her Wimbledons to have 1 Australian and 1 French and get the career slam? :p

Jul 5th, 2008, 05:32 PM
Well, two of Serena's eight ARE Wimby titles, so maybe the question should be "trade any of FIVE of my major titles for Wimby titles?"

Jul 5th, 2008, 06:08 PM
Each one has different memory. Like the last one of Serena's.
And more importantly Serena has 2 Wimby titles. No need to trade any.

If I were Venus I would trade two of her Wimbledons for one Australian and one French Open. But then again, it's Venus so she would keep her beloved Wimbledon titles.

What a dumb thread.

Well its not as if Serena has never won Wimbledon so I'd rather have the 8 titles;).

Jul 5th, 2008, 06:14 PM
I'd prefer to have 8 GS and a career GS than 5 Wimbledon titles.

Jul 5th, 2008, 06:18 PM
nah... RG is very hard to win..I'd rather have the 8 titles :)

Jul 5th, 2008, 06:23 PM

Serena has all four Slams!

And all of them atleast twice with the
exception of the French!

Jul 5th, 2008, 06:25 PM
i'd rather have ao/fo/w/us open instead of 5 wimby

Jul 5th, 2008, 06:29 PM
Wimbledon = Australian Open = Us Open = Roland Garros

I don´t see the point of this thread :shrug:

No way, winning all 4, even just once, tops any achievement.

But 5 Wimbledon titles is still amazing.

Ergo , Agassi >>>> Borg :rolleyes:

Jul 5th, 2008, 06:46 PM
She's one away from the double career slam. Mabe she'd trade an Australian Open, I guess. But that would be it. I've never even heard Serena say she prefers Wimbledon anyway. The only players who I know for sure would trade a title for a Wimbledon would be Henin and Seles.

And the players who for sure value Wimbledon more are Venus and Maria :tape:

Serena should be more than pleased with what she's got. She has two wimbledon's afterall, and she'll have more chances.

Would you do everyone a favour and STFU about ATP for once :wavey:

Borg also won 11 majors compared to Agassi's 4. Of course he only won at the French Open and Wimbledon, but just the sheer number alone makes him greater than Agassi. Not to mention that he won those majors many years in a row.

It would be different if Borg had 4 majors with 2 French Open and 2 Wimbledon. Then Agassi would be greater than Borg, which was The Daviator's point.

Nope , cos the example Borg- Agassi is the best to show how false is the equation winning all 4 even just once >>> not winning all 4, but more GS titles
