    Will Serena Williams retire soon? Will she play again?

    Her aim isn't really number 1. She doesn't really play the schedule anymore to reach number 1. Unless she wins like 5 big tournaments in a year which I don't see her doing

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    Ilnesses and injuries don't even out during careers. That's the most BS statement that I keep hearing ever. Some players have more injuries and severe illnesses than others and yet in despite of that have better careers than other players.

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    And Serena missed AO coming into 2004 with a knee injury that required a risky surgery that could have ended her career right there and then. Justine had the benefit of not playing either sister (especially Serena since she was the defending champion in both the US open 03 and Australian Open...

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    This. The fact that Serena didn't win a single title for 2 years from AO05 to AO07 should suggest that that had nothing to do with competition. Henin didn't have any affect on her career until 2007 and that was just for 1 year were Serena was returning back to some sort of form (still nowhere...

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    So you give Steffi the excuse of being in a slump for 2 years from her fathers alleged blackmail but then you dismiss the notion of Serena being in the worst form of her career from post- wimby 03 - 07 and account that to Serena having competition from henin even though they never played in...

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    Yes because dealing with a year long injury while also dealing with the murder of a close relative can definitely be equated to your father being blackmailed which somehow linked with her "bad form" that lasted for 3 years and suddenly ended when her rival was stabbed all while being fully fit...

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    Not to mention she finished ahead of henin in 04 in the year end rankings so your point about Serena never being ranked ahead of Henin is false.

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    Henin benefited from serena's injuries, lack of form, death of her sister and depression post Wimbledon 2003.
  9. Man of steel

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    She was only the year end number 1 from 03 to 07 because Serena was out with injury/unfit and unfocused for the majority of it. People always bring up the excuse that Serena was only winning because henin retired from 08. Well what about the fact that as soon as Serena was injured post...

    And... yet another SW article

    This is what regularly happens in interviews. Certain topics can be off limits for interviewers to ask eg. Robert Downey Junior and his incident with an interviewer asking about his father and his drug history. It's fairly common

    Margaret Court vs Serena Williams (the definitive thread).

    In some years the championship didn't feature one player outside of Australian Nationality and quite a few of them only had a handful of non Australian players. Draws were mostly consisted of 32 player field where the top ranked player which was court, got bye's in the first round and ended up...

    Formula 1

    Hello singapore Police. Yes I'd like to report a mugging. He was seen in a Mercedes stealing the WC from the tifosi heart.

    Equal money debate fallacy

    True. The top soccer players (Ronaldo/Messi) are paid ~30 million a year from just their contract. The most a top player in tennis has ever earned from prize money in a single year is ~ 15 mill and that only occurs if they have a near perfect season which is rare while Ronaldo and Messi could...

    Will Serena receive a warning for coaching again?

    Where have you been for the last 10 years. Venus was diagnosed back in 2010...with symptoms occurring as early as 2007.

    Serena Owes Ramos an Apology

    This is actually wrong. Stats suggest that she came to the net the same amount of times in the first set as she did in the second set.
