Re: Serena noches yet another RECORD!

So now what, Dominic? As shown..the record for most majors won with losing a set is 6 by Navratilova and Serena has 4. So clearly winning a major without losing is a rarer occurance than winning while dropping sets here and there.

So why r u all over Serena?! I know...haters can only hate.

As great as Serena is, her fans should just stop trying so hard. This is not an impressive stat, we can easily turn this thing and say that Serena should have lost in the three majors that she won.

Yeah, like Sharapova never come back from MPs down. In case you didn't know, she survived from this situation a lot too.

Re: Serena noches yet another RECORD!

It shows Serena is tough stuff!!

But show of hands who's tired of RVD starting threads in GM and then calling anyone who posts against it "stupid," "ignorant," or "asshole."? What are you, 5 years old?

When will that clown finally be banned and restricted to the only area where his deluded posts have any reason to exist (Serena forum that is)?

You two, in a Serena thread, fanning the flames of your discontent. Hmm, now where have I seen that before?

Re: Serena noches yet another RECORD!

So much hate whenever Serena extends her GREATNESS!

This thread brought out the Serena haters, as expected.

So many so butt-hurt while Serena continues to do-her-thang to extend her legendary status and records.

Rest assured Haterz, that whenever Serena accomplishes anything that sets her apart from past or present faves, it WILL be posted, and you will all simply have to lick your pathetic wounds as she continues her ever forward progression to distance herself from her WTA constituents.

Re: Serena noches yet another RECORD!

I almost had a heart attack when serena came to net against dementieva on match point. Especially since she messed up like 5 easy volleys before that.

Re: Serena noches yet another RECORD!

Nice to learn about Margaret Osborne duPont. We don't learn enough about some of the players of the past.

Even though this record that Serena is supposed to have "notched" is not that important ultimately, coming back from match point down and winning is basically what we expect of champions--so I don't know why some want to say it diminishes the quality of your win. No matter. The win is the win is the win is the win.

I enjoyed reading about Margaret Osborne duPont.

^ Indeed. Thank God for Serena, cuz w/o her we'd probably never hear about these vintage players who she joins in the record books.
