Re: Which is Serena Williams's best season so far? 2002 or 2012?

2002 without a shadow of a doubt. Her summer run of 2012 was amazing, but the year as a whole is actually only her second best year because her 2003 and possibly 2010 seasons came to an abrupt end when she would have been the odds-on favorite to collect her third slam of the year at both. Maybe even with a third slam in 2010, her 2012 would be better than 2010 on account of more non-slam titles, but not 2002 with one less slam, one less title, no #1 etc. I'm still thankful for it

Names don't mean much. Clijsters was slamless, Henin as well and pretty much all the other players.
Just the very fact that Serena ended N3 with such amazing results says a lot really.

They were still better players than the top 10 players of this year.

if you have to wait until everyone wins a slam for them to be strong players then someone's RG is meaningless try again....if serena was winning most of the slams then who else was gonna win them? 4 slams can't be won by every member of the top 10 in 1 year so some of them will lose...serena was too strong in 2002 for them so failed logic


2002 by far

2002, without a doubt. To dominate like that in that era.. imagine if she was coming up against the players of today that year

I never said that she wasn't but just that they weren't threat for her despite being in the top 5. Clijsters, Henin weren't that good tbh and were certainly not playing at the level people were expecting them to.
As top 5 players you shouldn't have those poor results at majors, Clijsters reached one semi final at majors in 2002, Henin as well.
Clijsters lost to Capriati, Fernandez, Likothseva and Mauresmo.
Henin lost to Kim, Kapros, Venus and Hantuchova.

Like I said, Clijsters and Henin's results were horrible at majors for top 5 players and Serena wasn't the one beating up on them back then.

So Clijsters/Henin having been to GS finals and Henin winning a GS the following year were just not that good. You need to back away from your computer.

In 2002 they weren't. I don't know about you but I do expect players in top 5 to reach at least the semis of every major and not lose in 1st round/2nd round or the third one.
