Re: Who is Serena's greatest rival of all time?

Probably Justine. I think Serena thought at her peak that she would beat Venus, Martina, and Jennifer. On the other hand, with Justine I think there was that little bit of doubt. She was able to win more than she lost but I still think she was the most worried about playing her.

Re: Who is Serena's greatest rival of all time?

Her rivals were all depending the surface really. At her best on HC's she didn't have rivals..Vee, Jen, Kim could push her a bit.. on grass Vee obviously and on clay Juju.

Re: Who is Serena's greatest rival of all time?

I wonder who people think Henin and Maria's greatest rival are? Its clear that Serena is Venus's greatest rival, Henin is Clijsters' greatest rival.

Does serena have a negative h2h against any top player of the last 12 years?

For Maria, I'd say... Vika (this rivalry will evolve a lot aswell )
For Henin, Clijsters.

Re: Who is Serena's greatest rival of all time?

Rivalry would have to be Venus or Capriati. Moreso Venus because she won all those GS finals against her. But she there was more drama and excitement with Jennifer.

sister can't be greatest rival, especially if they live together .... It's still competition between sisters, but not rivalry like Federer-Nadal

Hingis and Henin better candidates for being called rivals
