Can Marissa Mayer rescue Yahoo?

Yahoo is still a profitable company that has a market cap of around $20 Billion, with $5 Billion annual revenues and huge traffic (more than 184 Million people globally visit a Yahoo! page every day). So despite losing relevance in the Google vs Apple vs Facebook vs Microsoft world, she will still have command over decent sized resources to do a massive turnaround.  At the least, with her $300 Million+ net worth, she has nothing to lose, and can only benefit from any upside from Yahoo. Plus, she is one of the smartest people on the planet and more intelligent than any former Yahoo CEO. So if anyone can turnaround Yahoo, it’s Marissa.

The Best Decade of All Time in Tennis

In no generation or decade in the Open Era have the top active players won 91% of all grand slams!
Never before. Not the Agassi, Sampras, Courier period nor the Connors, Borg and Mcenroe period
Not even the Wilander, Lendl, Edberg and Becker period.
Have taken a top player to mean anyone who has AT LEAST won 4 grand slams in the Open Era in their entire career!
Agassi, Courier and Sampras together won LESS THAN 60% of all grand slams.
Borg, Connors, Vilas and McEnroe were better and they CUMULATIVELY won 75% of all slams.
The immediate next group of Connors, McEnroe, Wilander won just 83% of their slams.
Even the highly competitive 80s era of Wilander, Lendl, Becker and Edberg together won just 82% of all slams.
But FEDERER, NADAL AND DJOKOVIC HAVE WON 32 OF THE LAST 35 SLAMS. 
Never before have the top tennis players DOMINATED a decade like this.
This is a phenomenal 91% win rate in all grand slams.
And the best part? the TIME PERIOD of this era is now 9 YEARS!!!  so its not like a brief 2-3 year bright period. Its freaking 9 YEARS!!!
