Listen: Serena Williams, Martina And Kevin Blackstone discussed on Around the Horn
"What a win mean gene for Serena Williams Kevin Blackstone wow more accolades Serena Williams. I mean it's just unbelievable that she just continues to dominate her sport. Now at thirty seven years old will be the oldest woman ever to be in a major slam final s remarkable that she's come back from her pregnancy giving birth having a life threatening situation in terms of giving birth and not only that I think really really cool thing is we started out this tournament talking about cocoa golf who by the way talks about her her mentors or her her idols being Serena Williams and Venus Williams and the fact that she looked up to him and said that when she beat Venus that's the only time she's ever cried in a met so you're not gonna see her greatness but you also see early Greg I sold as it would say Wimbledon. Miss Williams is dominant. She's all the way back. She's made it to a vinyl since giving birth but she's she's is in better shape right now in today's match she she won all but three points off of her first serves. She's getting her per serving and if you're not getting yours in it is over because she's going to jump all over that this is dominant as she is looked in about five years. It's going to be very difficult to beat. What's amazing is after all this time? She's the greatest ever she's still the best women's player on the tour. That's what's remarkable. Bob Ryan with all due respect to Martina. I don't think there's much doubt any longer who is the women's Tennis S. and Franken Serena Williams. She is at such as level now going doing what she's doing and commanding attention that she's commanding for all of us that you're going to be. We're not we're getting real close to the following. What was the name sister? They were hers again. You know we're almost there and I mean she's setting yourself apart that that is an incredible statement. I just made but I'm standing on your steady gone so you think she's left Venus so far behind we can just let's not let's be Venus behind. She's hid has had an incredible incredible career but we're talking about Serena here Clinton Yates and specifically coming back after the pregnancy last year the life threatening condition during the pregnancy last year. She didn't get the winds in those finals last year. How important what is it for her to finish the deal this year I think is relatively important but I think what all this shows that she's doing this for one reason now reason that's important which is for her? I think for a black woman in a position she's been in a leadership when she's been in such a spotlight is also very very difficult for people to realize that this on the human individual. Let's not forget what happened in that final. She cried on the court in front of the world. It was something that was a very emotionally riveting moment"
