And that's the goal of every female tennis player in her prime: seek out a retired male tennis player 20 or 25 years past his prime and challenge him to an exhibition match for great gobs of money. How do you youngsters say it?... PFFFT!!!! :lol:Jen'sFan said:Of course! Serena is young, fit and a very powerful tennis player. Connors is alot older and probably very slow.
BJK has already gone down this road!Sammm said:Of course she could. She couldn't beat Jimmy at his prime, though.
Very true but then he is just the joker in the pack. I find him funny.Trish101 said:Jmac lost to Jennifer Capriati earlier this year in a "practice session" with her (whatever Johnnie mac!) and so wy does he think he stands any better a chance of Beating Serena (who leads Jennifer 9-4 in their H2H???) Jonnie couldnt beat Jenny Cap and he sure as hell wouldnt beat Serena !
:lol:selesrules said:I don't think Serena has what it takes mentally to beat a man, even a 60 year old. Sure in terms of power & skill, she could beat the current Jimmy Connors on paper. But mentally, she will collapse.
For example, even though Margaret Court is a superior player then Billie Jean King in terms of power etc., Margaret got crushed 6-2, 6-1 by Riggs, while Billie Jean beat him. That's because Margaret couldn't mentally look at it as a normal match and she collapsed. Serena would also collapse when she sees a man the other side, however players like Monica, Jennifer, Lindsay would be able to play. They have what it takes, they are not fragile in front of men like Serena is.
