To be fair her opponent was twice the ball-basher Serena was.

That's not the point. Serena winning RG would be like Tsonga or Berdych winning it on the men's tour. There are no players with perfected clay game on WTA. Even Henin the greatest CC player of her generation was not a true clay courter - her play style was more close to Nose's. A true CC player would be something like Stosur with 5 times the agility.

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.
Seriosuly, please elaborate.

1)Serena has the most slams for a woman?
2)Serena has the most tournaments wins for a woman?
3)Serena has the most weeks at number one?
4)Has Serena ever reached all 4 grand slam finals in the same year? let alone 3 times?
5)Has Serena reached 10 consecutive grand slam finals?
6)Has Serena reached 20 consecutive grand slam Semifinals (at least)?
7)Has Serena reached 30 consecutive grand slams QF?

Yeah the facts are there

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

After playing very high level tennis in 2002-2003 against 8 quality players (Venus, Davenport, Justine, Capriati, Hingis, Seles, Kim, Amelie), she burned out and played part-time since, together with Venus.

It took 5 years for her to be competitive again, but the field had changed. 2009-2011 were the time of slamless #1. Now the top 10 is: Masha, Vika, Aga, Errani, Li, Kerber, Kvitova, Caro, Makiri. It's a bit stronger with Masha, Vika, Li, and Kvitova. But they are no Nadal, Nole, Murray, Del Potro. More like Safin, Roddick, Ferrero, Hewitt to Federer.

Sorry, no comparison with Federer. Those who dare to say Serena was better in terms of H2H with her chief rivals, should have their heads examined. Federer has FAR greater competitors and he's still far from game over.

It is ridiculous to compare the WTA and ATP tours. They don't compete against each other. That whole article is just silly.

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

It's an insult to Serena to mention Fedwig in the same sentence as her. She is dominating, he is praying for Murrisha to reach slam finals just so he can scrape out 1 a year.

Bow down and kiss her feet before you speak about the Queen, and hold onto yo weaves if you step to this post.


Mona Barthel will win 50 slams

it doesn't matter how silly is the article, it will be read by a huge number of similarly silly people, who will after reading it consider that Serena is a GOAT and the likes of Federer would be struggling to win a set vs their Goddess.

Eventually we will have "Current american players in ATP are not good enough, but our GOAT Serena is greater than even the best player in men's tour ever"
