Re: (Be completely honest) At their absolute peaks, who would win - Serena or Steffi?

Would you say this is why Justine doesn't lead Venus in their head to head?

The fact is, they played twice in 91-92 on faster surfaces and Seles didn't win a set in either of those matches.

Re: (Be completely honest) At their absolute peaks, who would win - Serena or Steffi?

Peak Seles beat Graf three times on clay and once on slow Rebound Ace, which were Graf's weakest surfaces. None of the wins were easy. Seles had won 7 slams before she got her first victory over...

Re: (Be completely honest) At their absolute peaks, who would win - Serena or Steffi?

If by peak, you mean "primes" as the poll suggests, and not a one-off match at their very best (which Serena would win on any surface, because in that case, let's assume her serve and return are...

Re: BREAKING - Azarenka pregnant!

Makes sense. Why bust your extremely injured ass on the tour when you're 0-10 in slams against Serena, and she's still trying to get to 25?

Rest. Come back when Serena's hit her targets and is...

Re: WWW 2016 Wimbledon F: [1]S.WILLIAMS vs. [4]KERBER?

Under what circumstances would you expect someone who's not the favourite to win, i.e. expect the favourite to lose? In that case, why is she still the favourite?

Re: Who has a better chance to win a GS?

Cornet did beat Serena 3 times in a row though, only achieved by tennis queens such as ASV, Venus, Legend, Capriati, Justine, and I guess, also Dementieva. It's really more elite company than...

Re: WWW 2016 Wimbledon F: [1]S.WILLIAMS vs. [4]KERBER?

Kerber won't be as hungry as she was in Australia, and Serena will have something to prove. Mentally that will make a difference even if Serena doesn't come out with her best tennis.

Serena in...

Re: Wimbledon SF : Kerber routines Venus 6-4 6-4

No, she was not. She was always up a break in the first set, at one point even two breaks. In the second set, she went up an early break with chances for a second break and didn't have to face a...

Re: Vesnina's "HEY-YA!" shouting is not grunting, it's cheating

I think the point of grunting is not so much to increase force or exertion, but to help your body stay relaxed and keep its form, which is particularly tricky when you are tired and/or tense. When...

Her instagram account says "tell me I can't and I will", so maybe someone can dare her to put on 10 pounds.

Re: Interview by Roberta Vinci

The few people LOL-ing at Vinci's backhand in this thread don't understand that it's her stronger wing, and would be the stronger wing in any era she played. It's her forehand that is the liability,...

Re: Shocking interview by Roberta Vinci

Of course it's annoying to play against someone who's treeing and hitting lucky shots. Most of the time they donate the match to you if you're a smart player. But there's nothing you can do about...

Re: WTA players with ATP forehands

Stosur is the canonical example. Henin, Flipkens, Kuznetsova, Doi. And McHale, Kasatkina, Errani, also have ATP-inspired forehands but just a little off. There is a lag in the wrist activity, and...

Re: Which do you prefer: One-handed backhand vs. Two-handed backhand?

One hander has more top-end power and topspin (easier to generate racket head speed), probably better on the run especially for low shots.

Two hander has more stability, useful when you are rushed...

Re: Wimbledon 2R: [1] Serena def. McHale 67 62 64

Christina has an even better forehand - it's somewhere between Alize's and Sam's. Alize moves better though (most of the difference might lie in their respective fitness), and plays with more...

Yes, but it seems as though at least part of the Sharapova case, whether in the actual court or the court of public opinion, is judged based on her taking Meldonium even during the times when it was...

Re: Sharapova banned for 2 years, Sharapova to appeal

ITF wanted to throw her under the bus with the full 4 years for throwing them under the bus with her pre-emptive press conference where she spoke about silent bans.

Should blood/urine testing results be made public?

According to the tribunal report, 19/24 of the samples in 2015 that tested positive for Meldonium were not from Sharapova. I, for one, am curious to know who contributed to them. On top of other...

Her smile has the Sharapova stamp of approval, so maybe.
