    Can Serena be considered an all time top 5?

    Oh come on some of you aren't even trying anymore

    Anybody else think today’s SF was a battle between ATP and WTA styles?

    His strokes look weird? I always thought they were pretty
  3. Tanya

    Serena was 18-4 head to head against Azarenka.

    is she playing the French? I don't see her making it even to the SF in Paris, let alone winning it.

    Can Serena be considered an all time top 5?

    Just curious: who do you think are the other 2 women / top 5 overall?

    Will Serena Williams ever win another grand slam?

    Most likely real, possibly with extensions. Usually it's pretty obvious when she's got weave

    Serena should change coach and add variety and finesse in her game

    Serena just needs to bring Richard back on as head coach. Back to basics

    Serena should change coach and add variety and finesse in her game

    I'm curious why she doesn't try to come to net more. I know she doesn't exactly have Navratilova's feel, but she is a highly accomplished doubles player and her big groundstrokes should theoretically be good for the approach/setting up easy volleys. But too often she seems content to just slug...

    Can Serena be considered an all time top 5?

    Not saying I disagree, but just not sure this helps your argument that much. Had Seles's career not been effectively cut short, Graf would very likely have a significantly lower slam total.

    Us Open 2020, 1/2 Final: Serena Williams(3) vs Victoria Azarenka

    Well said. I was also a pretty avid Serena supporter in the past (my post history on this site can attest to that, as much as some people on this board would prefer to assume my dislike of Serena is due to her skin color) but the 2018 USO debacle was the last straw for me. I gave her the benefit...

    2020 US Open - Official Thread for Women's Tennis

    Bibi has some serious game, but it's pretty worrying how injury prone she is at such a young age. I don't see her having a long/consistent career as a result

    Will Serena Williams ever win another grand slam?

    Just because she was more consistent doesn't mean her level of play was higher. That's what I'm trying to say. 2013 Serena was extremely consistent, but late-2012 or 2002-3 Serena had a higher peak performance.

    Can Serena be considered an all time top 5?

    Serena played against Seles, Sanchez and Pierce as well. And Graf for that matter. I assume your argument will be "they were past their primes at that point" but Nav and Evert weren't exactly in their primes during the Graf era. I disagree that Novotna was as good as Mauresmo, but we can agree...

    According to her, she didn't used to enjoy tennis. Only recently has she come to appreciate the game and her time on court. I'm happy for her

    Name a player you thought would be ‘the next big thing’ but never ended up achieving much

    Nicole Vaidisova. She even teased me with her short-lived comeback a few years ago... poor girl fell victim to the Stepanek charm. Still not over it. :cry:

    Will Serena Williams ever win another grand slam?

    Ehh I disagree. 2013 was certainly a great year for Serena, and one of her most consistent, but her level of play in the latter half of 2012 was more impressive. Both pale in comparison to the Serena of 2002-3 though, in my opinion. Yes she was sloppier, but the sheer athleticism and...

    Can Serena be considered an all time top 5?

    You must be joking. Saying Venus was Serena's only rival discredits the golden era of women's tennis in the early 2000s. Guess you've forgotten about the quality of the field, so let me remind you: Hings, Davenport, Capriati, Henin, Clijsters, Venus, Dementieva, Sharapova, Kuznetsova, Mauresmo...

    Can Victoria Azarenka get back to no.1 ?

    She dominated the first half of 2012 until Serena came storming back around Wimbledon

    Can Victoria Azarenka get back to no.1 ?

    As if being ranked #1 in WTA actually means that much. Maybe if you're Safina, Jankovic, Ivanovic or Wozniacki...

    Serena was 18-4 head to head against Azarenka.

    Azarenka hasn't been out for years

    Us Open 2020, 1/2 Final: Serena Williams(3) vs Victoria Azarenka

    I think it was more a case of Serena using up all her mojo in the first set and running out of gas. But we can agree to disagree
