WTA: Women's Tennis Association or Williams Tennis Association?


Since 1999, Serena or Venus Williams have won at least one Grand Slam title every year except for 2004. That means, at least in my mind, they are the most dominant pairing of singles players to ever play the game of tennis. The Williams sisters have combined for a total of 30 Grand Slams and 14 Grand Slam doubles titles. I personally believe that they are the most dominant, all around duo to ever play the game of tennis.

Now, there has been a lot of questions when it comes to new number 1 ranked WTA tennis players. The current number 1 ranked player, Angelique Kerber, has won 2 majors but has been on a bit of a slide. She has not won a single title in 2017 and has not played her best tennis this year. Does she need Nole's technique of "shock therapy"? Probably not, but we will have to see how Djokovic plays in the next couple of tournaments. Since the Williams sisters have come onto the tour, there have been three players that have been number 1 ranked and have not won a Grand Slam; Caroline Wozniacki, Dinara Safina, and Jelena Jankovic. Wozniacki is the only one, out of the three, that have been ranked at the number 1 position for more than 50 weeks. But none of these players have ever shown sheer dominance over anyone they have played.

Serena has been known to cause some controversy with her comments and with her actions. Her selfies in the bathroom during her date with Drake, the reporters question that she refused to answer during the Australian Open, and when she dated Dimitrov, there was a feud going between her and Sharapova. All of this in retrospect, provides drama and controversy that sports thrive on. She not only dominates the tennis world, but she also makes it more exciting.
