Serena wasn't even good enough at 15? How about inexperienced. You seem to forget Serena never played the juniors, unlike Sharapova, something that is just about unprecedented. I'd like to see where Sharapova would be without her experience from playing juniors. Serena wasn't even playing professionally at 15.
