Re: Best Technique

The technique is neither good nor bad. It is what it is because Graf has the fast-twitch muscles to generate the racquet speed required to pull off a late point of contact. In fact, if you think...

Re: Wimbledon R3: [25] Alize Cornet def. [1] Serena Williams 1-6, 6-3, 6-4

Where has the athleticism gone? She seemed so heavy and old out there. There were no obvious injuries. She's hit a wall.

Re: Mouratoglue has got to go!

This is not just mental.

There are obvious signs of physical decline. Serena is not getting into the best position to hit shots because she's nervous, but because she's no longer doing the...

Re: Who is greater now, Maria Sharapova or Martina Hingis?

Her first three wins at the majors happened in large part because Graf was missing due to injury.

At least, Sharapova beat a player of significant importance for her first major win.

Re: Indian Wells MD list is out: Serena tops the list. Kirilenko, Hampton & Venus mis

No tournament director would ever agree to those terms, particularly given what actually happened.

I was there. Yes, the booing was loud and extended, but I never heard/saw any racial epithets or...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Living in your mother's basement has obviously dulled your sense of reality. Who else but you would try to discredit the majors Steffi won before Monica was even on the tour? The world did not...

Re: Serena's 2013 Charm Offensive: Please Skip The USO Stop, Not Worth IT

The Stadium Court has 16,100 seats.

If it was full that day, which it was not, the IW Republican Racists would constitute only 12% of the crowd, 1971 of 16,100, provided they were all there. ...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Yes, younger players with more potential take over for older players with declining potential in other sports too. That goes without saying. The difference is that in those sports nobody (from fans...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

The mental aspect makes a better match player, not a better tennis player. Sad truth about the game of tennis and perhaps one of the reason why its popularity/credibility as a sport in the US is...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

It was NOT directly attributable to the stabbing. She tore the labrum in her serving shoulder from exceeding the physical limitations of her body. Given her service motion, it was bound to happen....

Nice try, but no. A slump is a credible fact in all sports, specifically the ones not contaminated by a "loser" mentality. See baseball, football, basketball. In those sports, players have bad...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

It only appears like a Straw Man's argument because you have overvalued the importance of the stabbing. In effect, the stabbing is no different than an injury which takes a competitor out of the...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Why should Graf fans worry? She is still No. 1 in all the GOAT polls. Moreover, her image remains that of a graceful champion with a stylish game. She has done nothing in retirement to diminish...

The paradox inherent in any argument that attempts to use the thoughts of a madman (Parche) to establish the reality of what was happening or what would have happened is that the man was mad.

Re: Is there or will there ever be a WTA player as LOVED by the crowd like Federer?

Really? Miami 2000 versus Hingis. The crowd wasn't very supportive. Didn't they boo her?

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

It is useless to argue with these idiots.

During Serena's 4th round match at Wimbledon, Chris Evert observed that Serena lacks the finesse to pick up low balls near the net. This was after Serena...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Her results did not decline slightly. In 96, she won two tournaments, including IW and Miami, before the French. She did not play in the AO or any tournament before IW. In 99, she did not win any...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Apparently, neither are you.

A slight decline?

Her body was breaking down almost after every major tournament (e.g., muscle strain at Indian Wells and at Wimbledon).

She was losing her focus...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Not by my delusional book. I was using your "logic".

If only the majors are "meaningful tournaments," Graf dominated Sabatini from 90 to 93. (Miami and the YEC are regular tour events and...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Funny, you have no problem counting wins at "meaningless tournaments" when it comes to Sabatini.

So, let's see. During that same period, Graf was 3-1 in majors over Sabatini.

Well, what do...

Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

You should stay out of arguments in which you have no stake because as is the case here you overlooked the context.

That claim was made in response to a claim that Seles was eating Steffi's lunch,...
