Re: Is there a case for considering Seles to be greater than Serena?

Ah Douchesanders is slipping lower and lower day by the day.

If Mashatards claim that Maria needs just one more major to surpass BOTH Vee and Juju while still trailing by 2 majors, solely based on career slam...then how the heck is Monica gonna be greater than Serena who has AND the career-slam, not just the career-slam..but held them ALL four at the same time...AND has more majors than Monica?!

Re: Is there a case for considering Seles to be greater than Serena?

I think on balance, Monica's appearance on Dancing With The Stars trumps....Serena's guest spot on Law and Order SVU....

So yes, most definitely

THIS. I personally wouldn't have said that but some of the Serena fans have made it clear that slam count isn't important anymore so yeah then I guess Seles is greater AND she's not a despicable character!

Who cares?
If The Daughter of Satan didn't get injured back in 2008, she would have won the next 19 Slams and be the GOAT of the GOATS. Sadly, evil was slayed.

I truly feel sorry for you, you go out of your way to hate all day and night long. So sad, you should try to find something positive in your life.

Re: Is there a case for considering Seles to be greater than Serena?

if Sharapova hadn't injured her shoulder she might have had equal number of Slams with Justine and Venus by today....

Should I open a new thread?

Actually i think that all these threads "if she ..bla-bla-bla, she would have....." are pointless, because it's impossible to prove it. Imagine that Martina Hingis retired after her 1999 season. The Whole TF would have been predicting double digits count of Slams for her.... In reality she didn't win a single one since then

Or maybe she would still have 3 as she probably wouldn't have won Roland Garros if it wasn't for the shoulder injury that forced her to change her playing style

Re: Is there a case for considering Seles to be greater than Serena?

Not even a Seles super fan like myself would say 'yes'. Why?:

Only 1 Wimbledon final.

No Wimbledon title.

Failure to really go for it after her comeback, particularly in comparison to Serena's recent comeback after issues that were no doubt very traumatic and could have ended her career and life. Monica succumbed mentally and was broken. She lacked belief and that is a sign of weakness not greatness. You can't just win when everything is peachy. I still love her more than any other player though!

Despicable character, huh?
