There is actually no way we can tell because of the whole butterfly effects. Everything will change, the draw, the ranking, it will even affect all the other slams not won by them.

Davenport and Henin would be considered greater than Seles, Connolly, and possibly King and Lenglen, if the Williams sisters didnt exist. Amazing.

She sure did----I remember everyone had all but handed her the trophy at Wimbledon 2000 ... The way Venus especially turned the tables on her after all the beatings when she first came on the tour was amazing...

Re: If the Williams Sisters weren't tennis players- who would've won their slams?

lol sorry I love Dinara, but her and Elena would have collapsed in finals against anyone if they had a semblance of a chance, not even if Serena or Venus played in the finals.

My beloved Jelena even - yes she played well, but would you be shocked if she choked set points against say...Dinara in a final? You'd hope Dinara would have gotten better in 08 after the French, but then we saw how she played in 2009.....who would've won if it was Dinara vs. Jelena in 08?

Re: If the Williams Sisters weren't tennis players- who would've won their slams?

I guess it's fun to do this kind of stuff but it's almost impossible to say.


- The whole draw of each major would have been different so we don't know who would have been playing who.

- Power tennis might have stayed at the level Seles brought it to so many playing styles would be different.

Dinara and Jelena would both be Slam winners. It would be so well-deserved, I wish it was true.
