Like I said earlier, the injury excuse is perfect. If she wins, its cause she's a warrior and she faught thru it. If she loses, its because the injury held her back and Henin got lucky. Win-win.

You ever had cramp man? I dont meen the cramp thats uncomfortable, i meen the one where you muscle looks and spasms.

Henin is the better player because she is more consistent, harder worker, and never complains like Serena.

Henin is better right now. If Serena focused she could be top 5 women all time. She could be the GOAT. She always gets injured though. But man, she has HEART.



How someone could say she is disgusting is beyond me. She's muscular sure, but when shes not flexing and gripping the racket and swinging and **** shes hot stuff. GREAT body. Cute face, what is wrong with her? NOTHING.

First off, a focused Serena isn't even close to GOAT material. Graf(GOAT) won 22 Slams and Court won 24. Navratilova and Evert won 18.

Even without the injuries, I'm not sure she gets close to any of those.


I just find her repulsive. Apart from her ginormous arms, I think her insane amount of arrogence turns me way off. That and she's one of the sorest losers I've ever seen.

I agree that she's not the GOAT, not even close. But, a focused and more dedicated Serena would be dominant for many years.

Which is true, but Martina Navratilova has a career record of 1440-213, 167 career titles, 18 grand slam singles titles, and 31 grand slam doubles titles. These records are beatable, as any record is, but Navratilova is like the Wilt Chamberlain of women's tennis.

My point is still there, the mention of Graf even furthers it. Serena would have 2 greats that she'd have to pass, which would be a tough task even if she had a completely healthy career and a good work ethic.
