Bold part uncertain, not true at all, he can't know how other generation of players would fare.
Also Graf's forehand certainly won Steffi much more points and matches outright than Serena, a lot of people seem to forget.

Strongest yes, fastest LOL, she is not even in the league of Graf/Sanchez Vicario for crying out loud.
Probably briefly during 2002 she held that kind of on court speed, but mostly Serena looks in trouble when she is forced to move around the court.

This is one of the most laughable quotes ever, Serena who has indeed TANKED tons of lower Tier events in her carreer? Seriously?

Day in, day out, she comes way short against the legends of this sport in this category.

Here i agree, pretty much with her 2002 level Serena was simply untouchable and her fitness peak allowed oponnents single digit winners in most matches.
