Re: SI dares to claim: Serena can be compared with Federer in GOAT discussion

IMO, it's disgusting that all these "experts" are announcing Serena as the GOAT. What the hell happened to Evert (18GSs), Martina (18), Margaret Court (24) and Graf (22) compared to Serena's (16)? Who's Serena's paltry competition? The women's game is a joke. It's disgusting that the women get as much money as the men. Whatever happened to "equal pay for equal WORK"? And this is coming from a woman.

Re: SI dares to claim: Serena can be compared with Federer in GOAT discussion

As a Serena Williams fan, I will say that comparing her with Federer is a bit strong. While she might end up winning more slams than Federer, there are quite a number of achievements Roger has, that she is certain not to reach. With that said, I think with a couple more slams, Serena, for me, would be the greatest female player of all time.

Before I leave, I wanna point out that some of these comments are really uncalled for. Whether you do or don't agree with what Sports Illustrated said, you take it up with them, but don't show such nasty disrespect towards Serena, a player that has worked her ass off to get where she is and do what she's done over the course of her career, despite everything she's dealt with. Some of you really need to grow up and move past these silly, childish comments.

There are times, rare moments, when the greatest of champions fall. Maybe because of a bad day or maybe there's pain within. One thing you can be sure of, is that all the great champions will bounce back again. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But one day, they'll be back again. And they'll be better than ever. Why??? Because that's what great champions do. They survive.

Of course not. Serena has the golden slam in singles. Roger can't compete.

Re: SI dares to claim: Serena can be compared with Federer in GOAT discussion

Also, Serena has finally showed some late dedication to her craft....finally getting in better shape and putting aside off-court distractions....but she may have left it too late to ever challenge Graf in the GOAT race....time will tell. You know the implications of this though, right. First we say Serena is greater than Graf....then we broach the subject that "hmmm....maybe Pete *was* the GOAT after all...let's throw out the numbers and records and have a rethink".

Re: SI dares to claim: Serena can be compared with Federer in GOAT discussion

That is so stupid to compare Federer to Serena. Why do they then move Roger to WTA and Serena to ATP ? Then will see how many GS Fed would win and how many Serena will have. Why do they do not compare Fed to Steffi Graf ? What do you think if Fed plays SF at FO vs Eranni BO3 sets? Who is going to win ? Maybe Serena is better than Sampras ? It is really stupid !!!

Any of the guys would probably lose to Errani. They'd be too busy cracking up with laughter to remember to return the serve..



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie
