The only women who were able to dominate the game after turning 30, were/are Navratilova and Serena.

All other top players were fading (or retired) when turning 30...
Maria turns 31 next month...

All that is left for her, is decline....

Shows why Maria is a pro athlete and you aren't. With your mentality, well, champions would never be.

Mytiwtiw, I feel clay is going to be her safe haven. That and the grass.

You must wonder why, given the extensive Russian doping campaign throughout sports, why Maria is being given a pass. Her father was a failed athlete who no doubt doped or was doped back in the day. For sure, she doped her, and from the start. 100%. That's why she kept the Russian team doctor as her personal physician even though she lives in Florida.

Add Davenport.. Didn't she become #1 again after 30? I thought so.

Graf could've continued. She just couldn't be bothered.

The WS and Graf are natural athletes. Martina, not so much.

Why would you feel that the clay is her best option when (1) her shots are nowhere near as potent as they used to be and (2) she's slower than what she was and (3) clay takes the sting out of shots and requires more stamina? If anything, this will make her even more vulnerable than before and grass requires her to just hit hard which she can do but...these other girls are not intimidated by her and they hit harder and move better than her....? Sheer lunacy
