Physically she is stronger than graff Navratilova and egret combined. If u mashed those three in a grinder and produced a hybrid Serena would still smooth them with her massive legs and huge arms.

Exactly, Azarenka was just trying to make herself feel better, she wanted to be able to tell herself "atleast I choked away a Slam final against the greatest ever". How come players who say Serena is the greatest like Azarenka are more authoritative than players who say they don't think she's the greatest ever (e.g. Maria)?

Kim Clijsters also said Serena was the greatest ever. when has Maria ever been asked if Serena was the greatest ever?

Re: Says Azarenka, Serena is the greatest player of all time

Kim said she thought Serena was the greatest ever at this tournament. That's two slam champs and #1s at this tournament alone. A bit more reliable for a valid opinion than Dslanders' drivel.

Kim is also more likely to have a clear opinion than anyone else active, because she has played Graf.

Re: Says Azarenka, Serena is the greatest player of all time

She's clearly not speaking in terms of accomplishments though Serena's are still plentiful.

You are preaching to the choir!

I alrealy know this, it is the Graf-Tards(anabelcroft is one), that turn a blind eye to the obivious!!

Re: Says Azarenka, Serena is the greatest player of all time

I have a question for the die-hard Navratilova and Graf fans.

What will it take for you to consider that Serena could be the greatest female tennis player of alltime? If Serena retires with more GS singles titles than Graf, will she then be the greatest? Does she also need to play another 10 years to win more titles and spend more weeks at #1? (or just the slams). Personally, for me she is the best / greatest even if she retires today.

I am curious, because she has anounced that she will be playing at least 4 more years and a lot can happen for her if she stays active. What will it take?

Re: Says Azarenka, Serena is the greatest player of all time

I'm no fan of Graf but unless she completes the golden slam she's not in the same league of greatness if you ask me.

nothing, all time greatness is not defined by number of slams only, it's like with MJ they're better athletes than him or players with more or same number of rings but MJ is still all time greatest basketball player or you can bring Dan Marino as example too, he has zero Superbowls but he is one of the greatest QB all time.
