Sharapova, on the other hand, is tall, fair-skinned and ‘good looking’; she has consistently earned more money than Serena, through modelling and endorsements, despite winning only one-quarter of her Grand Slam titles.

Could this also be one of the factors motivating Serena to go on court, against the Russian, with all guns blazing? Tennis aficionados, however, believe that Serena’s pursuit of Grand Slam records has provided a hell of a lot of drama for women’s tennis in recent years.

Then there were those who battled against the Williams sisters in the ‘90s, like Martina Hingis, Jennifer Capriati, Lindsay Davenport, Kim Clijsters etc.

But injuries and early retirements have robbed women’s tennis of some potentially great match-ups.

Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray then came along and made a place for themselves in the sun.

Tennis rivalries are one on one; tactical, psychological and very personal.

Brad Gilbert, a former tennis great and TV analyst says, “Serena Williams has wiped out the field.” With her recent break from tennis, interest in the women’s game has therefore waned.

I meant 75 percent of all women players are fat, lazy pigs!

At the end of the 20 century, there were the epic battles that Pete ‘the pistol’ Sampras fought with Courier, Becker, Agassi, Rafter and others.

Roger Federer took over from where Sampras left to dominate the first decade of the new millennium along with Rafael Nadal and Andy Roddick.

This isn’t necessarily true of team games like cricket and football.

A Virat Kohli versus Steve Smith or a Messi versus Ronaldo match-up isn’t as intensive or high-stakes as a Roger Federer versus Rafael Nadal battle. In one tense Borg-Mc Enroe match, the latter was throwing tantrums after every point, when the Swede called him to the net, hugged him and said, “Relax, John! Let’s enjoy it.” That was respect for each other’s game too.
