Re: S3 Week 5, Antwerp, BEL, Tier II

Retirement is in the air...




Serena Williams has had some tremendously dissapointing losses since the beginning of the season and even before this she has had struggled if we exclude her final at the YEC. Serena Williams also got off the Australian soil heart broken and ashamed of her performance at the Australian Open. All these bad things keeps adding up over each other and it makes Serena feel like retirement might be for sooner than what we all thought.

We asked Serena if these retirement rumors were any kind of true and she answered us, "You know, I'm still on top, I still feel like I can own all of the other girls playing on this tour if I play my best, or even half of my best game would be enough, but my game just ain't clicking this year, sometimes you have to move on even if you're heart doesn't really want it..."

We asked her if she would stay on Tour if she goes down to number 2 in the world, she answered, "No. I ain't a number 2, I'm the best and if I go down to number 2 than I'll just have to go on finding something else to do. I've given up on PCD to focus on world number 1 position, but lately I just ain't sure it was the right thing to do."

We also asked her if she had lost a bit of her motivation as she accomplished what she wanted already, she said "Well you know, I'm trying to motivate myself having the objective of reaching Elena Dementieva's record for the most weeks at number 1, but I presently do not feel I'll catch up on it in time. I've won a GS last year, in front of my home crowd, I've been number 1 for 20 or a bit more weeks, sometimes I'm wondering why I get up in the morning to train."

Serena

With your 525pts bonus from USO Series you will probs be #1 for a while yet - you are still #1by a fair bit - don't you dare retire even if you go #2!!

Well at least Serena will have a song just for her when she retires.

When Iveta will retire everybody probably won't even notice it as she's accomplished nothing.

Bonus points aren't taking off in the ranking?

The thing is, about the one that got away, if he was meant to be in your life, then he would’ve found his way back to you.
So, you moved on; you chose a different road. Good. Keep your eyes on that.
If you’re always looking in the rear-view mirror, you’re going to miss the turn you need to make in the road ahead of you.
And believe me, there’s always plenty of road ahead of you. Focus on that.

They are taken off - was just saying that the extra 525 will definitely help her stay #1 until the USO.
