Yes, I think proof of the need for a bonus is Serena and Venus. Even
though Venus has more of the most
prestigious Slams, most consider Serena to have had the better career
because of her NCYGS.

Serena

USO 99 - 5
FO 02 - 9
Wim 02 - 16
USO 02 - 21
AO 03 - 29 (bonus)
Wim 03 - 36
AO 05 - 39
AO 07 - 42
USO 08 - 47


Venus

Wim 00 - 7
USO 00 - 12
Wim 01 - 19
USO 01 - 24
Wim 05 - 31
Wim 07 - 38
Wim 08 - 45


Serena edges her in 7543, has more slams, also there is that YE#1 Venus
never had.
So yes, I guess it's Serena who has had a better career so far.
But it's very close, and someone might put more weight on dominating
Wimbledon than dominating a single (non-calendar) year.

Or actually, my mistake. Serena has 9 Slams overall, doesn't she?

Well, in either case, Venus still has more of the most prestigious
ones.

IIRC, Venus has 7 Wimbys and USOs compared to 5 for Serena.

Overall Slams: Serena 8, Venus 7

On 7543 Serena - 42, Venus - 45

I suspect that is what the OP meant - 4 matches from equalling the
number of slams.

Perhaps that could be confirmed?

Sampras achieved 6th yr-end No.1 in 2008. Fed achieved 4th straight by
2008, which is the equivalent year.

At the very least, this AO would give him a very solid claim to HC GOAT - nine
HC slam titles, and tied on AO count with Agassi and USO count with Sampras,
and five in a row USOs for garnish.

Remember, Whisper said that USO finals count (because Federer tied Sampras for
5 usos with "in a row" bonus) and only 1 more AO was not enough. This should
silence him, right? Right? ;)

That it would. Even though he could say it already.


Sampras somewhat failed to achieve (his) maximum at HC slams.

Sick in 1994 USO, missed it completely in 1999.
Mental issues with private problems at AO 1995.

I gues with little more luck he might have won few of those?


This is reasonable, I am not saying something like "if Safin wasn't on fire
in 2000, if Pete wasn't old and tired in 2001.

Yes. Only Fedfuckers would say they are equal or Fed better if he wins

Trolling again?

So you'd really put 5 Wimbledon titles + 4 AO titles equal or even above 7
Wim+2 AO titles?

Great insight in the game of tennis, really.
