Re: SI dares to claim: Serena can be compared with Federer in GOAT discussion
Tennis is literally the only sport where you'd see nonsense like this: No one is going around claiming Mia Hamm can be in the GOAT discussion with Pele and Maradona. No one is going around claiming whatever golf chick is in the GOAT discussion with Nicklaus and Woods. No one is going around claiming whatever basketball chick is in the GOAT discussion with Michael Jordan. Etc. Etc.
Women's sports are women's sports, if you want to call Serena/Graf/Navratilova/Evert/whoever the greatest female tennis player of all time than good for you; but the greatest tennis player of all time will always and forever be a man.
If it's purely physical and you're watching someone playing six-hour matches over and over and showing no signs of being tired, you'd look at that. - Sir Andrew Barron Murray OBE
