I disagree. To me people post senseless things in moments of decent. Serena hasn't always been flying above wings spread winning. I think the point should not be opinion but timing. To read all of those "opinions" at a certain point in someone's career and fast word to today, it's automatic to be dumbfounded by statements that are made. It isn't like the posters here on average come back and retract their statements Ŋ\_(ツ)_/Ŋ. So yes what is someone talking about, in that moment, as if a career is over while they are still on tour playing. No different than now, Serenas career seems to not show an evident end in sight, yet records are being broken GOAT status is discussed and at the end of the day, these conversations or again "opinions" should be a focal point when she hangs her racquet up.

As I've always said, what sense does it make to compare with such strong intent, retired players to active players. This conversations about peak the best form style and athletics has been going on for ten years, yet you have a woman changing history books year in and year out. The conversation should start when the numbers are final, otherwise you'll always wonder who will retract their words, change their opinions or just be strong at heart to their thoughts no matter what.

No player since 1990 has won a slam in their 30s. The game was nowhere near as physical back then as it is today.

I could see Serena winning anywhere from 0-3 more slams. However the more I think about it the most likely answer is probably 0.

Serena is not more physically gifted than Graf and Navratilova. She is a more gifted ball striker than either probably, and more gifted server, but in terms of pure athleticsm those two are the best in history. Serena isnt even the most physically gifted of her own era, that would be Venus. Even if you disagree she is about 30% as dedicated to fitness and staying in shape as Graf and Navratilova, has had more injuries than Graf and many more than Navratilova, and as a result at this stage of her career is nowhere near as athletic as they were. Watching her matches since her return to injury her movement around court is now average at best, and she looks clumsy at times. She also tires easily, and doesnt have an abundance of energy in the tank if needed. Even when she wins like in Canada it has nothing to do with athleticsm anymore. Her groundstrokes are still solid and effective, though nowhere near as overpowering as once. She mostly wins on her GOAT serve, sheer will to fight and win, her experience and improved point construction, and excellent return of serve. When someone is either overpowering her, getting everything back, or mixing patience with hitting early and accurately enough to move her, she becomes almost useless now as she did in her mostly one sided losses to Bartoli, Stosur, and Makarova since her return.

Youīre joking right? The fact that todayīs tennis has somehow evolved doesnīt mean itīs more competitive, just take a look at how Serena and Venus came to the final in this AO and youīll see what I mean

There is a lot of real competition. It's just that Serena can beat any of it if she plays well.
