Serena Strategy brilliant

I hope I will not upset any Venusfans here but I believe Serena did extremely well going out in the quarters . She keeps her gunpowder dry for the slams (let us face it she still has a shot at the Grand Slam) and knew very well it was difficult to beat Sharapova and Clijsters in a row at this stage. After all she had won the tournament three times already.

Excellent strategy and the kind of approach I wish to see from Clijsters' coach in Poland or Berlin as well, if she finally wants to take home that well-deserved slam.

If you want to keep "gunpowder dry" and intentionally lose, then why enter the tournament in the first place?

Kim could be running two marathons a day, pumping iron, and doing full contact cage fighting and it wouldn't matter: this is her year to win a major.

Well you haven't "upset" me with your crazy post, just coz its cr*p and makes no sense whatsoever in relation to Serena. We all know that Serena is,more than arguably, the biggest fighter out there on the tour.She would NEVER give up on a match. Now I don't like this post too coz its giving way to those boring, match-fixing stories to surface again.

I think it's because Serena is an actress and she wanted to give a convincing show. Or something as equally retarded as that. :retard:

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

This gives new meaning to the claim that Serena beats herself.

Of course, that begs the question why Serena would ever lose any match. So that the WTA doesn't put her in a separate tour of her own or on the ATP? Yeah, probably that.

Yes, we will call it the "GLOBAL ICON TOUR."

The tennis court will be on a stadium stage and will be lit with strobe lights and have steam and loud music. On either side of the stage there will be CATWALKS with models wearing Aneres fashions parading during the match.

Serena will play against scantily clad male models and at the close perform a scene from Strindberg to showcase her acting talents. Ok.... Maybe Spike Lee instead of Strindberg.
