1 more to tie. 2 more to have most singles slams all time.
Which is why I ask the question. It was a foregone conclusion she would. Even coming back after her child, she made it to the finals of Wimbledon and US Open. Everyone thought she’d win both of those matches. She didn’t. So everyone just assumed these were minor setbacks, but that she was still the dominant force in women’s tennis, so she’d win her 2 slams soon and own the record.Right off the bat I’ll admit that I’m not a Serena fan, so I’ll ask the Serena fans to be objective and ask where/how do you see another Grand Slam happening. Personally, I think it’s laughable that you are asking the present day Serena to win SEVEN matches. The fitness level has marginally changed over the 13 months that she’s been back, the movement isn’t going to magically reappear. More importantly than that is that the intimidation factor is completely gone. She’s going three sets with Rebecca Peterson in Miami, she was on her way to a 3 set loss to Muguruza, who’s struggling to win sets these days, before the sniffles kicked in. I just don’t see it.
This is what makes this topic absolutely maddening!!At her best, Serena is still the best player in the women's game. She is less than a year removed from two major finals. If she stays motivated, and healthy enough, she can continue to win majors.
Her presence in the game has been 99% positive and she has done as much as any player in history to grow the game. Whether she gets that "record" or not, hopefully she will stay involved in the game as a player for years to come, then remains involved in the game long after her retirement.
The question is will she surpass Court not whether you like her or not, take your obsession with Serena elsewhere ******.No, and above all, I don't want her to win the GS tournament in the future. Her misbehavior towards Ramos on the court and her subsequent presentation of its action as a fight against sexism outraged me.
God help her if she plays anybody on a slow court.1 at most for me. Her body is packing in (same as Fed's but with less commitment to the cause than he shows).
Maybe 1 good run at Wimbledon/US Open left. God help her though if she tries to play Andreescu on a slow court.
I agree with you that she was not at her best since giving birth. Even at that level, she got to two major finals within a year of the birth of her first child. Is she going to improve? Only, and only time will tell. Is this the end? You do not know that. Nobody does. For some reason, that is "maddening" for you. Just read the replies above, there are plenty of people who are mad at Serena. Not me. I hope to see much more of whatever she has to offer.This is what makes this topic absolutely maddening!!
When’s the last time you’ve seen that best? It’s not going to magically come back. Father Time is not slowing down. It’s happening slowly to Roger this season, who is in much better shape than Serena.
On the topic of those Grand Slam finals, smoked by Kerber at Wimby, smoked by Osaka at US Open.
