So you'd like Serena to retire because she's too good for the rest of the field?

PREACH! Is that guy really blaming Serena for the fact that other gerls cant serve and keep the ball in court?

Masha will probably retire the same year as Serena , it won't be interesting for her to play without big boss in the tour ..... Beating Azarenka will be dull and boring

No. It has not sufficiently been praised, appreciated or even understood.

The ratings thing is maybe true in America but I don't think watchers in Europe for example get very excited thinking about if Serena wins another three slams or not. I see how that's exciting for her fans but it does nothing for the general viewer, I'm pretty sure people would rather see competitive matches.

It just spoils the tour as it is now. Take Wimbledon for example, it could really be exciting next year between Vika, Sharapova and Kvitova.. instead we'll probably get to watch Serena serve out 30+ aces each match..yawn.
Spoken like TRUE European. Slams must go to European players, no matter how mediocre otherwise European fans ain't interested.

Of course you're possibly close minded & also possibly hate watching your fav getting destroyed week in week out by Serena...May be if they worked their arses off, will be better competitors. My fav has never won a match against Serena either. But you have to realize that tv coverage of most events outta slams have become regularly available to us tennis fans because of Serena and Venus. The ratings are up in any event involving these two, no need to discuss this further except that credit has to be given where its due, no hating because they're not your fav
