Serena at Indian Wells 14 years later

Yes i remember the match. The match where this young woman was booed mercilessly while her countrymen cheered for a foreigner....just because they thought her sister (venus) faked a injury so that they did not meet before the final. A charge that was totally discredited by the way. But this is just one episode of similar treatment these ladies had to endure throughout their entire career.

The fact that they and particularly Serena have triumped...took on all comers and beaten them.... to rise above the sh*tty racial behavior of the tennis world speaks volumes about their grit.

When speaking of the GOAT this is a factor that must be mentioned because whilst Graf and the others had adulation to buoyed them these girls mostly had their family and friends and the black community putting wind to their sails.
