Re: Men using Serena's dominance as opportunity to slag off women's tennis

For all the Serena fans, would you still watch tennis if Serena retired after winning tomorrow? Why? Who would you root for?

Women deserve equal pay, but I think when you start arguing about why...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

With the French loss, Serena can never be GOAT.

The tour has been a mess and she's rightfully cleaned up for the most part. However, the string of losses to players she shouldn't be losing to...

Re: Any slam winner is greater than any slam-less player

Hate the disrespect Schiavone gets. She is a 2-time slam finalist. If you reach a slam final twice, you're not a fluke no matter what. Same with Bartoli.

Re: 2015 US Open SF: Robertina Vinci def Williams 2-6, 6-4, 6-4

That would be true if today's players on the women's tour knew how to hit passing shots well.

It's much easier to hit a great approach shot these days. And a lot easier to hit angles on the...

Re: Where does Pennetta rank amongst one slam wonders in the open era?

At the bottom but above obvious choices like O'Neil and Jordan.

Re: 2015 US Open SF: Robertina Vinci def Williams 2-6, 6-4, 6-4

Serena is still a great champion. No one can take her 21 slams away from her and 23 will hers next year.

Congrats to Vinci

Re: Nick Bolletteri: "If the prize money is equal, they should play through it".

Then you're in the wrong sport! It's not that hot in NYC.

Like I said, I've played for hours on these courts and I'm no pro athlete!

If they are retiring, then that is their fault. Figure...

This. So much this. It's not like New York is Dubai or the Sahara Desert. It's really not that bad. These are professional athletes.

Re: Women's tennis has become a JOKE

That's Sharapova's fault then. Serena almost died and came back to dominate. She's had several surgeries. Nadal had to miss more than half a year in his prime and came back and went on a tear.

Serena and Sharapova are the only stars women's tennis has. And the rest don't play well enough to garner attention. This is at least the case for American sports media where Serena is always a...

Re: Women's tennis has become a JOKE

My world doesn't revolve around Serena. She's the best thing the tour has going for it and without her it would fade into irrelevance.

Re: Women's tennis has become a JOKE

How is there no depth? 1-15 are very very good players. Caroline Wozniacki is ranked number 5. I think the ATP has much more depth than the women's game.

Don't mistake mediocrity and slight...

I can't help either of you. Just turn on the match right now. He hits with incredible pace, precision and consistency off both wings (among the best ever).

Re: Women's tennis has become a JOKE

Yes, those moments were criticized and rightfully so. Nerves is normal. Double faulting at critical moments becoming a regular occurrence is not.

And so many of his matches actually don't go to tiebreaks. He's no Ivo Karlovic.

Re: Women's tennis has become a JOKE

Well would you rather watch someone who knows how to serve well or someone who can't serve at all?
