Like it or not, stats that I pulled out was in the record book, not from one's arbitrary bias ( definitely from yours

Please stop arguing with that individual. His failed posts and threads are legendary. He thinks that Serena was not good enough because she lost her first professional match at age 13

Age has nothing to do with it. Venus couldnt beat the badass mouth Hingis in that semi final. Serena was the one who stop this bitch from winning another title in the us open. She was the first african american since Athea Gibson in 1959. Serena was the first african american to win austrailian open and french open. Serena was clocking out bitches before they even got recognized. So NO to Venus making Serena. Serena had the balls and the fire to snatch their wigs and put them into her collection. Venus was so jealous of serena the fact that she hingis and she didnt. If you looked at her reaction during the match. It says it all. I love Venus too and i grew up loving both sisters, but what you just said was pure BS.

Anyway, so Steffi is making her way back on tour in late '98 and of course I'm watching the Indian Wells final in '99 and am of course nervous because this Serena character is really taking it to Steffi. WTH? Serena is down a break in the third set and with a bad knee. Fine, girl took it to Steffi but thankfully she has faded. But she didn't! Bitch comes back and wins. Against my girl!! WTH, X100. I was not happy at all. So, I've been watching this with one of the fags I'm usually stuck with who rarely watches tennis, and Serena is making her speech about how she now knows what it's like to be on a roll (having won Paris Indoors the previous week). So my fag says that Steffi has been on a roll her whole career and why begrudge this young girl her roll? And you know what? He was right! So I turned it around and was happy for the teen Serena and her "roll" and have been a fan ever since, and appreciated her gutsy moves against my gal in that match and her fighting spirit. I'm not sure getting to the SF of the Australian Open is equivalent to winning Indian Wells over Steffi, but let this girl have her chance in the sun and go on a few talk shows! This could be the highpoint in her career which she should enjoy now, or a hint of thing to come like with Serena in '99.
Girl PREEEEEACH!!!!!!!!!!

Capriati took the first, Serena took the second.


"The youngest ever" ones that you mentioned in your post was NOT the point that originally raised by them and was debated. It was understandable, due to Capriati went full force at a later age due to her father's pushing. Hingis also set a bunch of records of youngest ever. But those were the main reason for burning out, not to be encouraged, hence the age restriction rules.




Personally, I found a youngster came out and started beating top players right at once is more impressive at showed with Serena and Seles both of whom are in the discussion of The Greatest of All Time, while Capriati and Hingis, while great, are certainly many cuts below.
I never said youngest anything.......

Re: Sloane Stephens on CNN & Ellen Show today

I don't care what anyone says. This girl has star quality. She just lights up the screen, and I don't just mean with her perfect smile and well-defined features.
