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

Quote:
Bruce Jenkins "Serena Williams gaining on Federer in best-ever debate"

"Best ever" arguments generally hit a roadblock in tennis, usually about the refined modern equipment that makes wooden rackets and gut strings so dramatically obsolete. So let's stay in the present and ask this question: Is Serena Williams challenging Roger Federer as the best player of this generation? And could she soon own that distinction all by herself?

It has reached the point where even the most cynical insiders view Williams with reverence, at once startled and blown away by her utter dominance on court. That's how it was with Federer at his best, a time when so many sporting legends -- from Rod Laver to Tiger Woods -- sat courtside to grasp the full measure of his greatness.

Recent memory tends to be the sharpest, focusing on Williams' 91-4 record over the past 14 months and another astounding performance from Rafael Nadal at the French Open. Federer appears to be in gradual retreat -- certainly no shock, by any reasonable standard -- while Williams might be playing the best tennis of her life. In that sense, these two 31-year-old players seem to be headed in opposite directions. But let's take a measured, long-view approach to the argument. I think a strong case could be made for either.

I think it's absence of good American in ATP took them to posting this ***** (so many words are in my mind, but censored) analytics in Sports Illustrated

Serena certainly dominates the tour better than Federer ever did.

Well, at least Serena doesn't have negative H2H's against her main rivals.

but her rivals are a joke. Those few who could play tennis had respectable H2H versus her, like Henin or Hingis

And she definitely was always heavyweight playing against welterweight athletes

Serena is more masculine than Federer.

Comparing men's tennis to any thing happening in WTA is blasphemous.

Serena is more dominant than Federer but she would not take a game off of Roger. It's probably Chris Evert's intern writing that because she is into that type of nonsense.
