Re: Amazing Fortitude: Serena turns her disappointment into triumph

That is a good look for Serena

Speaking of Venus-she would be perfect to do a movie about Althea Gibson.

Re: Did Rio change how you feel about Tennis being in the Olympics?

It is precisley because of tennis in the Olympics that we have so many of the Russian and Chinese players on tour today.

Those countiries put time, money, and effort into the sport only after...

Re: Why are people calling Serena a goat ?

You think so? I don't. Yes we know all about Seles of course, but look at how many slams Serena has had virtually no top players to face towards the end because they implode? A lot of today's lot...

Court won at least 190 (we are still counting).

I'm in total agreement with you. While I don't think today's women are tougher than in the past things such as court surfaces (hard courts are...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Winning all 4 slams in one year is something she has-tied only by Maureen Connolly and Margaret Court :)

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

There will always be a debate unless Serena gets to 25 and wins THE Grand Slam, which she choked on last year.

Not to mention there are others not named Serena or Navratilova who are GOAT worthy....

Re: Why did Gasparyan retire?

Hello Meli :wavey:

Take a look at your link. While it does have slam results for Martina back from 1973-it is hardly complete for regular events that year.

Then look at Nancy Richey:...

Why did Gasparyan retire?

Why did Margarita Gasparyan retire at 0-3 vs Allertova?

I am trying to keep track of the draw here:

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

What fascinates me about the whole period from 1990 to 1993 is that Monica Seles was NOT beating Steffi "consistently." Head to head they were almost evenly matched.

Seles was a dominant #1 in...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

While you bring up some good points Aces High, I'll respectfully disagree.

Week in and week out for the last few years Serena has lacked a main rival or a rival of note since Henin and Clijsters...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

They are all GOAT worthy for different reasons. One finals loss (or even had Serena won for that matter) wouldn't have changed that.

As long as no woman holds all the cards there will always be...

Re: Next player most likely to get her maiden slam in Wimbledon?

Wimbledon is due for a repeat winner.

Serena or Muguruza more than likely -especialy with Petra a mess at the moment.

Madison keys has weapons.

Aga Radwanska perhaps? She blew a golden...

Re: Welcome our newest world #2 Garbine Muguruza!

If she gets her serve harnessed and more consistency we will soon have new #1.

Congrats to her. Serena put on the pressure and Mugu kept it together. and TOOK the match. A Wimbledon rematch could...

Re: Is there anything wrong with quitting a match?

Because then your middle name becomes "Quitter".

Since there are also paying customers quitters should forfeit prize money in my view, maybe as much as 50%.

Re: Miami SF: Azarenka def. Kerber 62 75

If Azarenka keeps this form she will win more slams. Great quality match.

She has yet to prove herself fully on clay and grass.

Vika has a mean and hungry look though-no doubt about it.

Re: Serena Williams - End of her Kingdom WTA?

Players are rarely fully appreciated til gone. At any rate Serena is cemented in history. That holds true if she runs on wins 25 slams or never wins another.

So enjoy her twilight, whatever...

Re: Miami 4R:[15] Kuznetsova force feeds [1] S.Williams 67 61 62

You have a point there.

What was up with Serena's convo with Kadar Nooni in the match with Diyas the other day? It sounded tense.

Re: Miami 4R:[15] Kuznetsova force feeds [1] S.Williams 67 61 62

She cares if it's Miami.

I wonder how much the heat factored in here. At the Aussie one year Serena was literally cooked vs Sveta on a hot day-until they closed the roof!

Never count Rena out,...

Insofar as who wins or loses I agree with you. King beating Riggs really proved nothing about women being "equal". It perfectly captured the zeitgeist of the times though. Either tour would kill to...
