Can't wait for Big Three (Serena, Venus and Kim) to snatch some wigs in 2012.

Generation Suck hype is getting ridiculous.

Especially Petra and Vika, who although very good players in their own right, are nowhere the blend of offensive and defensive capabilities that marked the Big Four. And some people arguing that Petra's peak is better than Serena.

Venus will be a relative non entity next year. Also looking forward to KIm and Serena bouncing back. Kvitova at her top form will trouble both of them though.

Re: Can't wait for Big Three (Serena, Venus and Kim) to snatch some wigs in 2012.

Every few years there is a player who takes tennis to a new level. Someone who is utterly brilliant at what they do. If we look at the late 1980s/early 1990s, we had Nav/Evert, to Graf, to Seles, to Hingis, to the Williams Sisters, to Henin - and then chuck in lesser but still amazing players like ASV, Davenport, Clijsters, Mauresmo. All these players have added something to the game - they've either made it more physical, emphasised the importance of something that previous players could have improved on (e.g. Serena's serve), or a combination, resulting in truly amazing tennis.

None of Generation Suck look even remotely of doing to tennis what these players did. The prospect of improving on GOAT-Rena is scary I know, but tennis has been played out like that. When Sampras left, Federer emerged. There are similar examples. Now we're left with the current crop who aren't really elevating, or taking tennis to new heights.

I think Vee will get snatched by others instead, like by Pironkova again?

I can't wait either. Hopefully next year there will be a full and fit field. But I just have a feeling that 2012 will mark a change in eras.

The fact that you think Venus can "snatch" anyone's wig Don't hold your breath.

This. They became irrelevant, there is no such thing as the big three anymore. I expect them all to fail in 2012 and retire soon.

Re: Can't wait for Big Three (Serena, Venus and Kim) to snatch some wigs in 2012.

Fiona is irrelevant right now and it will remain like this in 2012, leading her to her definitive retirement. Petra already trashed her in Paris, and even Azarenka trashed her

If Venus could remain symptoms-free from her syndrome she could win some titles here and there

Serena losing to Stosur in a slam final NOT a good sign for 2012, but I think she'll continue to dominate her pidgeons

I also agree with the posters who says are sick of this big three( I dont even consider Kimberly "big") it's time for the new generation to step up in 2012

If we consider all of vika's retirements, she almost comes off as a part-timer herself.

Hopefully, it will be a nice farewell year with seeing all the grannies putting desperate wannabes in their place before the DOOM arrives!

I was getting tired of them making the sport look a joke by just waltzing into a Slam and winning with little preparation, but now that we've maybe got some Generation Suck-ers to challenge them, hopefully that'll make them raise their games/effort levels. Basically, personally I don't actually want to see them retire yet, but I want to see them actually have to sweat to win major events if they're going to win them.

And LOL at people saying Serena and Kim don't have chances. Serena easily made the Final at the last Slam she played, and Kim is 23-1 at hardcourt Slams since her comeback; of course they're major contenders at the AO. However, it's pretty safe to completely write off Venus at this point.

Is it because they easily swat away your fave when they do choose to play?
