Yeah I'm with Pete on this one. Name all the Dominant women's tennis players over 32. I;m pretty sure the list is Serena. I was thinking Navratilova, but she only won one major after 32.

They have, but I think it's a weaker accusation. Look at her physical progression vs. Serena's. Night and day. If anything, Venus took some sort of HGH/steroid to combat the medical condition(s) she's dealt with.

Definitely agree. Behind Serena, there is an incredible amount of parity in women's tennis because the next crop of younger girls keep coming year after year. Sloane Stephens because the most recent up-and-comer that I can think of on the American side, with other, younger international players having an equal amount if not more success.

Women's golf has even had a lot of parody.

And in tennis, on the men's side you have Federer still winning majors at 37. Jake, no clue what you are talking about here. What sports did you have in mind exactly where women are better at an older age?

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

I would offer the following

Bridge
Mahjong

and as a footnote I once cared for a patient who competed and won the national championship in tennis in the over 75 age bracket. A younger chick took her title two years later when my patient was 77.

And yes, three years later she claimed the championship again in the over 80 age bracket. (True Story)

I guess we should wait 40 years before writing off Venus, Serena and Federerer.
