How so? Masha, the GOAT of GOATS ( with her 3 majors at the time...yet she was already discussed like she was some Juju or Vee.. ) was there in the final to stop her. What happened?

Unfortunately, in the late 90s and early 2000s, there weren't any slams to be had. So many great players but only so many slams can be won. Now, anyone can win slams and now they will be compared. This is part of the reason why I still hold Davenport ahead of Maria.

I agree, i'm not trying to shade or anything. But Davenport had a very tough era, she had to fight a lot to win her slams and she could have won more but due to the high level of play in the late 90s and early 2000s she was at disadvantage and her mental strength wasn't really there either.

It's dead obvious that Smitten's predictions are going to flop this season.

Obviously posters like Sammy01 are still bitter that Vika ended Kim's last real hope of a Slam title so they want Vika to flop as much as possible when in reality her year will be fine while Kim is sitting at home, retired, probably thinking abour her next pathetic farewall tour.

I said Vika would have a good year. Kim is happy, her husband doesn't have to throw himself out a window to get away from her unlike vika

And yet, when it comes to Serena, you don't factor in that she's won HALF her Slams in the same weak era that you claim Maria's benefitted from Just screams inferiority complex / serial hypocrisy.

what borrowedheaven said. Come on, you've watched enough tennis to know that Kim's movement was completely rubish and she wasn't getting to shots she would've normally gotten.

idk why people keep bringing Errani into this discussion. As much as I hate her, she was an outstanding player during the clay season and didn't fold during the entire FO tournament. She played like a top 10 player. People actually underrate the FO final because it had "only Errani" in it but she definitely made Maria work for the win (and they both came out with positive winners-ue ratio), unlike Maria in the AO final who gifted the match to Vika

Mental collapse. Bad match up. No longer the player she was when she won those 3 slams (in much steeper competition too).

actually, unlike most Maria stans, I think there is very little separating Maria and Lindsay only because of the amount of tournaments Lindsay won. It's the one reason why I wish Maria would play more tier 2 and weaker tournaments (4 vs 3 slams, 10 vs 11 tier 1s, 1 vs 1 yecs).

And yet when the conversation turns to Martina's greatness, people turn around and say she took advantage of a weak, transitional era?

Pova was after a long break from tennis due to her ankle injury . She actually should have lost in SF , but she decided after her Wimbledon loss never lose again to Petra

I think that by the time her career is over Maria will rank well ahead of Lindsay in terms of career achievements. But regardless of that, I think that Davenport is probably the most underrated player of the last fifteen years or so, not only based on her grand slam record but just her overall career.
