Very clearly the best of the decade. I find myself frustrated that she hasn't done even more, but she is very clearly one of the greats.

#192 on The Best Athletes of All Timesee more on Serena Williams
In the end, surpassed by her lil' sis, but no one should forget how much she has done, and how much grander her resume would look if not for Serena.
#285 on The Best Athletes of All Timesee more on Venus Williams
Very clearly the #3 of the decade. I've got mixed feelings here. I loved watching her emerge seeming to win all the tough matches, but the end of her career is filled with questions.

The "other" Belgian. She ended the decade in amazing fashion coming back from retirement and childbirth to win a major. Here's hoping she's not done.

She's had moments of absolute brilliance. Still waiting for her to become a dominant #1-type player.

Lindsay's a breath of fresh air. She's the first person on this list who you can really believe accomplished all she was capable of. If the decade coincided better with her peak, she'd surpass all but the top 3.

Everyone had given up on the ultimate child prodigy, then won a flurry of slams. Glad to have her on this list.
