Re: Serena and Graf and the GOAT Debate

Serena is without a shadow of a doubt the best player in the last 15 years. Steffi was the best player in the previous 15 years, with Monica. Before them came Navratilova, Evert and Court. Further...

Re: How would you make the 'Tournament of Champions' a more interesting event?

Alternative 1: Make the TOC a play-off for the last spot at the YEC.
Stage YEC as the last tournament of the year and the TOC the week before. Make YEC qualification as follows: all GS champions...

Re: True #1 of 2011 : Wozniacki or Kvitova?

No brains required to answer this question:
If you were a top tennis player, whose year would you rather have had: Kvitova's or Woz-n.1-aki's?
Thought so!

Re: First woman in the Open Era to...

Agreed - and you can add Steffi to that group as winning the French 87 and 99 makes 12 years also. Over the last half century Margaret Smith-Court snitches it with 1960-1973 and Billie Jean deserves...

Re: Centre Court WTA matches have been perfectly scheduled

Normally, one of the considerations taken into account by the organisers (along with the attractiveness of a particular match-up) is they try to give top few seeds in the draw a chance to play on...

Re: Injury To Hingis or Davenport (RG Legends Is Joke)

It's a round robin event with three teams in each group. Martina & Jana have qualified for the final by beating Iva & Conchita and Maggie & Nathalie. In the other group, Hingis & Davenport play...

Re: Will The Woz win a Slam in 2011?

If she doesn't win a slam, she could end up being known as "The Never Woz":tape:

Re: Real #1 of 1987-Navratilova or Graf?

Absolutely. Steffi was deservedly number 1 on the computer but as had happened before and has happened since, she was not the player with the most coveted titles. Although I'm sure it hurt Martina to...

Re: Who's the real Queen of Australian Open?

here's how Court's record looks:

In the January 1969 Aussie Open, and ranked #5 herself at the end of 1968 and #1 at the end of 1969, Court beat King (Wimbledon Champion, ranked #1 end 68 and #3...

Re: Biggest tournaments outside the 4 Slams?

I agree that it's really outside the tennis world and shouldn't be in the poll. Personally, I think it was a mistake to include tennis in the Olympics in the way they chose. It should have been a...

Re: For me Clijsters is real No.1

I think Kim's credentials are better than anyone else's for this year. The computer says that Wozniacki is queen but in spite of all her trinkets, she has no crown and her failure to make even a...

Re: Greatest player NEVER ranked #1?

Of all the contenders I've seen, Hana stands out as the greatest in this category and imo she was a greater player than several who did get to #1. Those who haven't seen her play should check out...

Re: Hail our 20th WTA World #1 Caroline Wozniacki!

Well done to her for having such a consistent year but quantity rather than quality is rewarded here. She's more "Danish Pastry" than "Great Wall of Denmark": very (too?) sweet but too much makes you...

Re: Navratilova and Evert met 80 times. Pick your favourite match

A "favourite" match is inevitably one where your fave played at her invincible best, so I'd have to go for the French of 84 but to be honest you can't reduce this rivalry to any one match. To people...

Re: Venus dominant at Wimbledon, Kim at US Open. Why isn't Kim Criticised?

Kim's three years (i.e. 12 majors) younger than Venus so maybe by the time she's 30 she'll have as many slams (or almost). If at that point she has 5 US Opens, an Aussie and one RG, people may well...

Re: Pusher over Serena on Centre in front of the Queen?

Most probably, they were worried that Serena would threaten to ram her f*g raquet down Her Majesty's f*g throat. :lol:

More importantly, Lindsay Davenport is set to make a return to Wimbledon,...

Re: Peter Bodo. Five Things we learned Down Under.

1. In the WTA, it's all about who finishes second. This was a critical major for the women, for one reason: Had Serena Williams lost to either Justine Henin or Kim Clijsters, it would have cast doubt...

Serena was in devastating form in the first week whereas Justine blew hot and cold, admittedly against tougher opposition. In the second week it's Serena who's been pushed but she's shown a...

Re: Venus: ONE slam semifinal (outside of Wimbledon) in the last 7 years

Good point. It does seem that her career splits along the line of before and after 2003.

Re: Venus: ONE slam semifinal (outside of Wimbledon) in the last 7 years

It's like she's had two careers: the Hingis/Davenport/Venus/Capriati years when she was challenging everywhere and the Serena/Justine years when she's done her once-every-two-years star turn at...

Re: S. Williams hasn't beaten J. Henin in a slam in almost 7 years;

Serena's world #1. Justine's unranked. Never since rankings started has an unranked player beaten the world #1 in a slam final. IF they both get to the final here, the only way I can see it happening...
