Re: Wimbledon QF: T. Pironkova def. (2) V. Williams 6-2 6-3

Do you think that in 10 years, people will actually remember her loss to Pironkova...

Re: Since Sydney 08, Justine Henin is mathematically the best of her generation

As much as I'd like Venus to have won the YEC, she has never done it.

I don't understand why the Olympics are given so much weight either. it is a prestigious title but it's not like everybody...

Re: Which is more impressive?

Sure Henin's win at theFO have been a lot easier but Venus had to beat the best grass court players to win her titles (Davenport, Serena and Sharapova) several times ... Henin didn't have too ......

Re: How J. Henin Quietly Became The Best Player in The WTA since '03 (Videos/Animatio

I did not forget it ... 2007 is not over ... Henin has the lead but who knows what might happen ... for all we know she might not win another match for the rest of the year (unlikely but ...)!

Re: The REAL rankings

Bumping Venus seed from 31 to 23 didn't actually change anything ... it would have made a difference if they had bumped her to the top16 though but being 31 or 25 or 17 doesn't make a difference ......

Venus' ranking will also be depending on what other players do ... there are a lot of players between #38 and #16 who have to defend their points to stay where they are ... so Venus could actually...
