03:26 PM ET 05.24 | I said to Mike something to the effect that Martina was great in her time but Serena Williams today would beat her, just totally overwhelm her with her intensity, powerful baseline game and those heavy, 120 mile-per-hour serves. Mike not only disagreed, he disagreed vehemently. He spoke with firm conviction in his voice and used his hands for emphasis. "It's not about intensity and power. It's about calm and self control." I tried to keep up the argument. "In one match, both at their best, Serena takes her out, she's just too strong." Again Mike would not agree. He was adamant, and spoke with a strong, authoritative voice. There was not an iota of doubt in his words. "It's not about one match. It's about consistency, longevity, doing it over and over. If you say Serena is the best, then why can't she break Martina's record?"
