Re: Serena won more titles in the last 18 months than she did the previous 9 years!

That really is an incredible stat. When comparing Serena to other alltime greats it is very clear she doesn't measure up in terms of consistency.

But she is making up for that by playing by far the greatest tennis any player has ever played in their 30s and having the results these last 18 months to back that up.

Her's really has been a very unconventional career. During the period most players peak, in their early to late 20s, Serena's numbers are very good compared to any of her contemporaries but pale in comparison with Graf, Evert and Navratilova's numbers from those years. But her last 18 months really have been extraordinary. Right now she in on target to simple trash all post 30 career stats from the past by a huge margin.

Have to say, I think it is remarkable what Serena is doing right now. The level and skill of her tennis over these last eighteen months really does compare favourably with anything I have seen in 35 years following tennis.

It's a combination of both.

You need to give her credit.

Serena won more titles in the last 18 months than she did the previous 9 years!
So why can't Serena win CYGS?
Jankovic about Serena:"You have to be a good sportsman."
YEC final: TIRED Serena Williams def. Na Li 26 63 60
When's the earliest point Serena can lose the #1 ranking?
Now all's said and done, where does Serena's 2013 season rank all time?
Justine's 2007/2008 vs. Serena's 2012/2013
Serious discussion: Where does Serena go from here? -- The Sequel
YEC SF: Serena "I wanna be an actress" Williams def. Jelena Jankovic 64 26 64

Re: Serena won more titles in the last 18 months than she did the previous 9 years!

Her streak from 2008 - 2010 of being at the top of the game, dominating the slams, getting back the number one ranking and only winning four WTA titles over three seasons was just awful imo. I am so glad she is making up for it.

Re: Serena won more titles in the last 18 months than she did the previous 9 years!

that's what happens when the best player of current generation is weaponless, serveless Azamug . If Sampras had had such "quality" competitors in his 30s he would have won 20 Slams. But he faced the likes of Fed, top form Hewitts, Safins and Roddicks.

Stupid and farcical post.

Why make fun of "Azamug" when she's actually prevented Serena from winning titles this season, unlike Maria.

Not making fun of Maria btw, just exposing your relentless hypocrisy. Serena is an amazing player so just respect her.

This ''Azamug'' holds a positive H2H record vs your fave. And only loses to her on clay.

She is healthy now so she know she is not risking missing slam due to nagging injury.

Azamug still can't win any valuable for Serena match, i.e. Slam , YEC match, despite she is at the peak of her career. Sharapova at her peak won 2 big Finals against Serena.

Okay.

I just thought you should be more respectful and understanding since your own favorite isn't doing any better recently. Serena is a really phenomenal player and losing to her in big matches is hardly a damning thing.

oh puh-leeze... "face the likes of Fed..?" You're just throwing out names now. Fed and Sampras played one single, solitary match, and though Fed showed great potential, he'd not exactly earned the label of "quality" in 2001.

You really shouldn't let bitterness get the better of you to the point where you become absurd
