Hell Venus only has 16, Henin at 20.
I think she's doing fabulous. Of course I want her to break the 40 mark too but # of titles only really matter for all time great debates imo.
Anyway I REALLY want her to win AO cos it means it'll be the first time in her career she holds 2 slams simultaneously. Plus it means Vika won't be holding one
if not any slam is fine. And plz win more tier 1 titles and end the year top 3 again.
Yeah, I don't care about titles. They're never used in greatness debates anyway -- I mean even the most ardent Serena hater wouldn't claim Davenport is greater than Serena just because she has more titles
I would never trade in Maria's Australian Open final this year for any (non-Slam) hardcourt title.....well, except the YEC maybe.
