    You should've narrowed the thread to be more precise... man, woman, number of titles, etc.

    Athea Gibson is the best tennis players out of all the listed players. In my opinion Athea Gibson is better than Serena and Venus Williams combined.

    Looks like this guy underestimated how long it would take Tsonga to make a good run in a slam.

    To make this thread back into an argument...some puerto ricans and dominicans are very dark, so would you classify them as black? What about men or women who were born black, but had a sever case of vitiligo and appear white? Would you classify them as white if you saw them walking on the street?

    If that's your definition, then neither Blake nor Tsonga is black. And, of course, neither is Obama or Tiger Woods.

    this thread is looking more and more as if it belongs in "rants and raves"
