It could be a player of current gen? Look at Serena in 2001 prior to US Open she was regularly losing GS QF

Look at her GS results between 1999 USO title and the 2002 RG

2000 AO - R16
2000 RG - DNP
2000 Wim - SF
2000 USO - QF
2001 AO - QF
2001 RG - QF
2001 Win - QF
2001 USO - Final
2002 AO - DNP

What I am saying in that period I doubt we were saying Serena will be the player she is today.

What about Vika she lost before SF Only once in 2012. As long as she avoids Serena in the draw she could have decent career and Serena won't be around forever as much as we wish she would be

Re: Next 'Great' Player

Hingis did put in weight work around 2000.

But otherwise, good points.

Maybe Serena is the last true great female tennis player like Maria Callas or Joan Sutherland were the last great bel canto artists.

You want SO much.

Why don't you travel the world and go to different tennis academies to find the next "great" player? As you're not getting what you want from female tennis right now.

It depends on the individual, quite a few of the girls on tour could be "great" if they were focused and devoted their time to tennis like Serena, Maria, Venus, etc. But they choose not to.
