i grew up watching 70-80's tennis, etc. Yes, Martina, Stefi and Monica were phenomenal
(i'd leave Hingis out this discussion altogether, she was the Lleyton Hewitt of her time,
to me....and nothing wrong with that).
Serena's new coach is doing a great job. At age 31, she won the WTA championship without dropping a set, started 2013 by winning Brisbane without dropping a set. But let's not bash the man who after all laid the foundation to the player the queen of aces would become.
If Serena doesn't get injured this year, I am confident she will win all 4.
