Re: Biggest threat to Serena in Slams?

Statistically? Venus. Clijsters is 2-7 against Serena, with her only victories coming at the Tour Champs in 2002 and US Open SF in 2009. Venus is at least 3-6 against Serena in the last 2 seasons,...

Could Steffi Graf Beat Top-5 Players Now?

I didn't say could she *be* in the Top 5, but could she - with say 6-9 months of training - beat the Top 5?

I would say yes to all 5, depending on surface. Even as a 40 year old.

People need to...

Re: 2nd greatest player of the Serena generation- Henin or Venus

This. Also, Henin is certainly the *better* player, but from a resume standpoint, shes not the *greater* player - there is a difference.

Re: Will Caro get direct entry to Yale Uni after achieving the three-peat in New Have

LOL. You're so off.

Being a minority automatically has the same effect as several hundred points extra on your SAT score. But thats way off topic, but you're chronically wrong.

Re: Will Caro get direct entry to Yale Uni after achieving the three-peat in New Have

They got into Yale by being Valedictorians and scoring perfect scores on the LSATs. Hillary Clinton was actually featured in Time magazine for her speech.

Re: Will Caro get direct entry to Yale Uni after achieving the three-peat in New Have

George went decades ago, was a triple legacy and came from a feeder school. Not comparable to Caroline Wozniaki.

Re: Do we have a temporary saviour in Sam Stosur, or just a blip?

Re: Wimbledon winners to net a million in prize money

You're forgetting that the pound has substantially devalued over the past year or two. 1 million pounds in 2007-early/mid 2008 would've been closer to 2 million dollars.

Re: WWW Miami Final: [3]Venus Williams vs. [14]Kim Clijsters

If Clijsters hits double fault after double fault and makes 60+ errors, she will not beat Venus.

Clijsters beats Venus by being more consistent and picking her shots. Venus, while not playing...

Re: Plan B.....

a healthy Davenport would make 97% of the tour look foolish. That probably wont change for a few years.

Re: Have we settle the peak Henin vs peak Venus debate yet?

Justine is a better overall player, but at their "peaks" Venus wins, simply because all of the components of her game at that level are beyond what Henin is capable of dealing with. Shes basically...

Re: Billie Jean King Cup - Draw

How is it a waste of time?
Time is money, and for just showing up you get more money than almost any tournament all year.

So its hardly a waste.
