    Serena last chance saloon

    That's nonsense. Sharapova's game fell way off so she'd still likely be losing to Serena. Also, doubt anyone enjoys playing Serena though they certainly feel they have better chances against 2021 Serena than 2014 Serena, which they do because Serena is older, slower, her game is lesser, and...

    Serena last chance saloon

    People always played tougher against her than they did most others. And if they beat her, a lot of times they would go on to lose in the next round. The problem for Serena isn't that other people think they can beat her (no matter how many times commentators repeat that BS), the problem is...

    2021 French Open - Ladies Discussion

    Serena already has the record. The chase for 24 is just an exciting story to write about. But no one serious considers Court the slam leader, and she certainly wasn't considered or mentioned the slam leader until Serena got close to 18.

    Women's tennis peaked with Serena 2002-2003

    Capriati is one of the most talented women's tennis players in the history of the game This makes no sense. Of course Seles only won one slam in 1993 because she got stabbed after the first slam and before the second one. That doesn't mean she wasn't the best player that year before she was...

    Will we have Nadal and Serena both end up with respective Grand slam records at Rg 2021?

    Except there's no way Graf is greater than Serena when Graf was not a complete player and faced a weak field. Her only real rival got taken out by her crazed fan.

    Will we have Nadal and Serena both end up with respective Grand slam records at Rg 2021?

    It doesnt matter that Court is a POS. She also doesn't have the slam record when many of her Australian wins happened when that tournament was not considered one of the top tier tennis tournaments. She also won many years when there were few if any foreign players with abbreviated draws - some...

    how has Sloane’s life been rough? What’s the story? I haven’t been following tennis

    Naomi Osaka is getting more attention for tennis than any player outside of the big 3 has done for years.

    It was the Cincinnati tournament held in NY because of the pandemic. It was not the US Open. Not sure what your point is there. The rest is an unhinged rant from someone whose so confused or inhumane or both that he thinks being against murder is a partisan issue.

    That wasn’t at the US Open it was at Cincinnati and it’s not special treatment. It was the right decision

    Agreed. The tournament escalated the situation by threatening to default her.

    Naomi Osaka is getting more attention for tennis than any player outside of the big 3 has done for years.

    Obviously she’s having some real issues. The way the tournaments resorted to threatening her is appalling. I know this pandemic has been hard on a lot of people’s mental health.

    Coco Gauff and Venus Williams are teaming up for French Open doubles

    She would have won Wimbledon in 2017 if she would have gotten a little bit of luck with the weather and gotten an extra day or two before the final. She was completely out of gas by the final after a super tough draw. But she played amazingly that tournament and that year. And it was a wonderful...

    Coco Gauff, Venus Williams Teaming Up for French Open Doubles Tournament | PEOPLE.com This is exciting. I've been hoping Venus would team up with someone other than Serena and play doubles. Interesting to see how they do. I think their games are similar.

    Osaka's Sister Explains Why Naomi is skipping RG Press Conference

    Should Naomi Osaka pull a Marshawn Lynch at press conferences?

    The biggest problem with all of this is Naomi has put more pressure on herself by making this announcement. And that probably means a lot more stress. None of us know what it feels like to be grilled by an insensitive press corps after a tough match. So I can't speak to the validity of her...

    Should Naomi Osaka pull a Marshawn Lynch at press conferences?

    It seems if they make an exception for physical injury, they also must make an exception for mental injury under rules such as the Americans with Disabilities Act. Not sure which countries laws would apply but I'm guessing every major country has similar laws in place to protect people with...

    Margaret Court's Inflated Record Down Under

    Why would the father arrange for Serena to win the matches most of the time? I guess he likes Serena better. Zero evidence. Makes zero sense. But I guess it's possible if your brain doesnt work right.

    Margaret Court's Inflated Record Down Under

    Have to disagree. The fact that she's still making finals and semifinals indicates that she's still at the level where she could win another slam or 2. I would never count her out because she's proven herself over and over again.

    Margaret Court's Inflated Record Down Under

    Lol okay. “As of April 1993, Monica Seles was tearing up the tennis record book. Of the last eleven Grand Slam events she’d entered, the 19-year-old Seles had won eight. Included in this run to the top were three wins in Slam finals versus the great Stefanie Graf—twice at Roland Garros (1990...

    Margaret Court's Inflated Record Down Under

    good points. It seems ever since 2015 Serena hasn’t handled pressure very well and yet she keeps making finals and won a couple slams since then now she’s in a very difficult place because her game is still good enough to beat anyone but many times she seemingly can’t control her own anxiety...

    Margaret Court's Inflated Record Down Under

    I think those are very good arguments for Steffi especially the Golden Slam. However, as someone who was a tennis fan back then it's just true that she really never faced a deep WTA field like Serena has faced and dominated throughout her career. Plus add to the fact that the ONE player who...

    Margaret Court's Inflated Record Down Under

    Good point. Though I can't accept Graf as GOAT because she has less slams than Serena AND her only real rival was stabbed and taken out of contention AND much of her career she faced a very shallow pool of talent in the WTA. It's nothing like things are today where we have so so so very many...
