Arantxa #2 in the list having played semifinals for 12 consecutive years :worship:

And still people would say she was a weak top player and argue about her capability and that she had only fighting spirt...

Roland Garros semifinals:

Serena - 2
Venus -1





Arantxa - 10 :devil:

You got ASV's records kinda wrong, she reached 22 slams semifinals, not 21. You missed 1993 French Open ;)

Also in 1997 she reached the SF at wimbledon, not the french :p Here's how it should look like :)

Is that the new style of dissing? By adding GREAT in capital letters?
It's not really shocking. Look at these

Seles - 1 wimbledon sf
hingis - 1 wimbledon sf
Aranxta - 2 wimbledon sf

Big deal.

I thought about finals for a second. ok 2. Still 'terrible' for such a GREAT champion. She is not a GREAT champion though. 5-7 record in major finals is not that 'GREAT'. Take Seles. She is a GREAT champion but only 1 wimbledon semifinal. Who cares?

And do you think these results are good for these GREAT players also? :weirdo:

OK, the Williamses results in Paris are great (or even OK) is that want you want to hear?

Man, these freak Williams talifans are so pathetic :haha:

It took you two posts to show your true colors. Congratulations.
I never said they were good. I'm trying to tell you it's a meaningless stat. Did Serena not win the french open? She did. That's all that matters. Nobody cares if someone else made 100 semifinals without a title.

First, this post is about semifinals reached, you might have not read it well :rolleyes: Want to talk about titles won? Go and create a thread about it...that's actually the reason I say they are GREAT even if you think that is a new way of dissing...

Second, if I still want to argue your point...did Venus win it? :yawn:

And yeah, there are are Williams fans, as any other player's fans who are totally fine but then there are these Williams talifans who would say everything about their players is sooo good and feel attacked all the time that I find extremely annoying. No player is perfect and neither the Williamses even if it seems you cannot accept it :kiss:

Wouldn't have never guessed Mary Joe Fernandez made it 9 times in SFs of GS!

And if someone asked me i would probably said Date only made it once (FO and Wimbledom, really? I cannot remember although i have been watching tennis for more than 20 years)
