The way that she has handled herself through all of the years of tennis she has had is admirable.  In the tennis world, competing at the age of 41 would be considered at one time to be a senior citizen playing children.  Things have changed.

True its a case of all of her competitors were not born yet or were babies when she was winning championships in the 2000's.

It's kinda like Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso, who's still kicking in his early 40s. Oscar Piastri, who will make his debut in F1 in 2023 for McLaren, was born in April 2001, 1 month after Alonso's F1 debut. Coincidentally, both his first Grand Prix and Piastri's birthplace are Australia.
