You got ASV's records kinda wrong, she reached 22 slams semifinals, not 21. You missed 1993 French Open ;)

Also in 1997 she reached the SF at wimbledon, not the french :p Here's how it should look like :)

Is that the new style of dissing? By adding GREAT in capital letters?
It's not really shocking. Look at these

Seles - 1 wimbledon sf
hingis - 1 wimbledon sf
Aranxta - 2 wimbledon sf

Big deal.

I thought about finals for a second. ok 2. Still 'terrible' for such a GREAT champion. She is not a GREAT champion though. 5-7 record in major finals is not that 'GREAT'. Take Seles. She is a GREAT champion but only 1 wimbledon semifinal. Who cares?

And do you think these results are good for these GREAT players also? :weirdo:

OK, the Williamses results in Paris are great (or even OK) is that want you want to hear?

It took you two posts to show your true colors. Congratulations.
I never said they were good. I'm trying to tell you it's a meaningless stat. Did Serena not win the french open? She did. That's all that matters. Nobody cares if someone else made 100 semifinals without a title.

First, this post is about semifinals reached, you might have not read it well :rolleyes: Want to talk about titles won? Go and create a thread about it...that's actually the reason I say they are GREAT even if you think that is a new way of dissing...

Second, if I still want to argue your point...did Venus win it? :yawn:

And yeah, there are are Williams fans, as any other player's fans who are totally fine but then there are these Williams talifans who would say everything about their players is sooo good and feel attacked all the time that I find extremely annoying. No player is perfect and neither the Williamses even if it seems you cannot accept it :kiss:

jrm
Apr 18th, 2009, 09:21 PM
Wouldn't have never guessed Mary Joe Fernandez made it 9 times in SFs of GS!

And if someone asked me i would probably said Date only made it once (FO and Wimbledom, really? I cannot remember although i have been watching tennis for more than 20 years)

spiceboy
Apr 18th, 2009, 09:25 PM

So if a player reached 10 semifinals without winning one would you call it impressive? Such low standards you have :lol:

Did I say Venus won it? :lol:

Why did you say that about Williams, not about Seles for example? Attention seeker :o And where did I mention Williamses are perfect? :o

Stop stereotyping.

Poor Sabatini, made 17 GS SFs and only won 1.

And only 6 for Pierce aka The Goat.
Actually Sabatini made 18, the list is leaving her first one at Rg 1985 out of the picture. And yes :lol: at the ones who say Pierce goat and so on and her numbers in this category are not nearly comparable, even to a "one slam wonder" like Sabatini.

Maybe but you only think Hingis wasn't a great player because you don't like her. :shrug:

This all pales into insignificance when you look at Chris Evert who reached 52 semi finals from 56 slams played, only failing in 2 QF and 2 3R later in her career. Her first 34 slams were all semi finals at least and she failed in just 1 of her first 49 which was when she was sick at Wimbledon and lost to Kathy Jordan in the 3rd round in 1983

Arantxa :worship: This category truly shows how underrated she is. Hard to be "lucky" or a "benefitter" in 22 slams, isn't it?

Also poor Gaby...she was consistent, but just couldn't get over the hurdle (very often anyways).

I'm surprised that Serena only has 15 slam semis...but I guess that goes to show, when she gets near the end of a slam she's the woman to beat.

Sabatini won 3. Still she lost so often in that round. Still nice to see her up there with players that won multiple slams. Just shows how consistent she was the whole carreer. :bounce:

Impressive to see Arantxa up there as #2 as well... :yeah:
