Well you have to admit turning water into mere wine is a mug miracle. Peak Jesus on gluten free diet would be able to turn water into scotch.

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

Pretty sure serena once said her hitting partner is a semi pro male and he comfortably beats her

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

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

Serena is probably the most dominant tennis player of all time. Anyone who denies that is probably racist. The facts are there. Even when she was fat, she was always in control of her matches, even the ones she imploded and lost. Having said that, to say she can even be compared to Roger or Rafa is ludicrous. The fact is she dominated a weak WTA. Federer and Nadal dominated a strong ATP. Yes. She was more dominant with all the bagels she dropped on Mrs. Dimitrov and Gronoller's sister from another mother but that's it.

Serena is better. Why not? she dominates the WTA more than fed ever did. her closest rival these days is Masha ffs lmfao who is lucky if she can take a single game of her on any surface.

Yes. I think there is no doubt Serena is the more dominant person. But American idiot media goes too far and says she can beat Nole or Rafa. Like Chris Evert said during that freaking match vs. Erani. The fact is Serena would struggle to win points against a top 50 man (not counting Tipsarevic).

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

Don't know if anyone saw tennis channel's list of hundred greatest of all time.

http://www.tennischannel.com/goat/71.aspx

Serena is ranked 14th and Federer of course is ranked first. Heck, Graf is ranked 3rd and Navratilova ranked 4th ahead of Sampras. Rafa is ranked sixth.

Probably written by Justin Gimblestob who is still heartbroken over Aliz Cornet. Let's face it.

Well that goes without saying and whoever said that is clearly retarded. But I was merely talking about their respective fields. it is of course ridiculous to compare her against the men.

It wasn't a good idea anyway. You cannot compare men and women, and combine a list like that. But I watched that program, and I liked it because I got to know about past tennis greats. I was amazed by some of the feats they have achieved. And it made me realize that there is no such thing as a GOAT anyway, and it's insult to all of those amazing players (especially the ones before open-era) to call one as a GOAT.

LOL

Serena > Federer
This.

Serena in woman tennis is like a Federer with Isner's serve,that's the reson she's much more dominant than Fed.But it's not her fault.

Both men Goats and women Goats are GOAT in their own ways.It's unfair to say somthing stupid like "let Serena plays against mens...".Men are faster stronger than woman.Blame genetic!

And people shouldn't compare men to woman,two different universes.

Roger Federer | Grigor Dimitrov | Dominic Thiem | Nick Kyrgios | Alexander Zverev

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

Similarly you cannot compare Serena with Federer or any other male player. The idea is just insane.

The woman won FO twice playing ballbashing tennis. That kind of shit doesn't happen in the men's tour.

Good Luck

That.

Not a single male ballbasher type player has won RG in modern era. Noah was the only serve-volleyer to do it as well.
