Marion Bartoli has lauded Serena Williams

Marion Bartoli has lauded Serena Williams for dominating the world of Female Tennis for the past so many seasons.

As per Bartoli, the level of consistency that Serena has shown in big competitions, it’s unmatchable. She is one notch above the rest of her contemporaries in terms of class and skill.

Talking to a newspaper, Bartoli said, “Serena is quite different. There are not too many areas where you believe you can attack her when you are up against her. I can tell you that because I have been in that situation a number of times. Having her as opponent on the other side of the court, it’s a nightmare.”

“Over the past decade or so, she has been able to dominate almost everyone. Yes, a few players have challenged on and off. The likes of Maria and Victoria, but, overall if you see, nobody has managed to shake her off her position and that’s because she is not vulnerable on any front.”

“She has got extraordinary potential and that’s why, she just keeps on adding more and more titles to her name. Her consistency is unbelievable.”

Bartoli, however, played down the question if Serena is the greatest female to have ever braced the game of Female Lawn Tennis.

In the words of the Frenchwoman, “I am not a big fan of making comparisons between people across eras. Steffi Graf, Navratilova, they played in a different era. Serena is a modern legend. All of them have been the great ambassadors of the game and huge role models for the aspiring players all over the world.”

Serena is already ahead of Navratilova and she should surpass Graf as well pretty soon in terms of winning the no. of Slams. There is a gap of just one title between her and the legendary German.
