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.

That's supposed to be a joke, right?

In terms of greatness in sport, Serena is about equal to Dudi Sela, I'd say.

So, I am assuming you would pick Serena out, right? And then, if her opponent turns out to be Djokovic, how silly that would have been? And if you think that having Djokovic as the opponent is not fair because Serena does not play in the ATP, so you have to agree that comparing a male player's career to a female's is also very silly...

Come on TSD, haven't you seen Errani and her 80 MPH first serves?

I think of ATP and WTA as different leagues and can't compare the two. It's like comparing the ATP with the Junior boys. No matter what a junior boy wins we can't compare him with the ATP!

Disgrace for you to mention the great Dudi Sela in comparison to Mugrena mate.

Sela is great.

There's not much point in comparing ATP and WTA. Federer will obviously never match Graf's stats.

As of right now Federer has the best Open Era resume of the men while Serena is still behind Everett,Nav,Graff.


I don't think its out of the realm of possibility though to suggest that when it's all said and done her hierachy rank in women's tennis could be higher then Federer since she looks like she could still add a few more Slams to her cabinet while Federer's window might be closed and Nadal has a shot to surpass him.

What a load of shit. Serena has 16 Grand Slam singles titles; doubles titles; Olympic Gold Medals; and is one of the most famous women on the planet.

Let's compare the opponents they both had to play in Slam finals during their peak:

Serena: Venus (7x), Hingis, Davenport, Henin and Sharapova (2x)
Federer: Philippoussis, Roddick (3x), Hewitt, 35 yo Agassi, Gonzalez, Baghdatis
and pre-peak Nadal (4x)

LOL

Serena > Federer

How about comparing Serena to Graf, Navratilova, Evert, or Court?

Oh wait, there is no comparison, because she's got almost nothing over them. Just like she's got nothing over Federer.

Why compare men and women ? Serena is American, that's where this comes from.

I'd like to see an American journalist seriously compare Annika Sörenstam and Tiger Woods and saying that Sörenstam is the best golfer of the generation.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Serena > Federer
You've forgotten Djokovic, Murray, Soderling and Safin.

Also Azarenka, Radwanska, Zvonareva, Safina, and Jankovic.
