    Roger is no doubt the king in his decade. Even with his worst year in 2008 was slightly behind Rafa's best year(2008).

    Serena is not impressive based on all the hype. She(and Venus) are the only players who played a full 10 years in this decade, but Serena only had 3 years at the top, but Henin also had 3 years herself. And Venus only had one year. It's laughable for someone putting Venus ahead of Henin for Player Of The Decade (you know who you are).

    Henin was definitely better than Venus during the decade. Venus was basically a grass court specialist in the second half of the decade.

    Your points must be wrong. Roddick, Ferrero and Federer all had over 4200 pts in 03.

    And in 04 Federer had 6335 pts

    In 07 Nadal had 5700 pts not 3700

    Your stats are all wrong

    You jump into conclusion. Before calling out WRONG stats, you need to know what ranking system JennyS based on. She’s using the latest ranking system:

    Winner = 2000
    Finalist = 1200
    Semi = 720
    Qtr = 360
    R16 = 180
    R32 = 90
    R64 = 45
    R128 = 10

    I checked all the ones you claimed it’s wrong(Roddick, Juan, Federer and Rafa), and Jenny had it all correct.

    Right. And Venus only had a total of 11 weeks at #1. Mauresmo, Ivanovic, Safina, Jankovic, Capriati, Henin, Clijsters, Lindsay, Sharapova, even Hingis who belongs in the 90’s have more weeks at #1 than her in this decade.

    It just examines points earned at the Slams using the current system - I was confused at first, too.
