Tennis is one of the world’s most dynamic sports. Players come, see, conquer, and then pass on their batons to younger generations, and the cycle keeps repeating. However, in the 2000s, something remarkable happened, as the likes of Roger Federer and Serena Williams began to assert their dominance across the ATP and WTA Tours respectively. Once they did assert it, they didn’t let their dominance fade as so many do when they think they’ve reached their peak. Instead, they continued in the same dominant vein for many more years.
