Freethinker82 - I THINK he's discounting the retirement against Shaughnessy at Sydney. If you do, then Serena is on a wining streak that dates from the Tour Championships last year. Howevr, that's a guess. I have no actual idea WHAT he means.
BTW, I'm with TeeRexx on this. A LOT of people on this board can't seem to see Serena is playing the best tennis on the tour. Wertheim may be 'stating the obvious' to any objective observer, but how many of those do we have around here? The origin of the word 'fan' is 'fanatic', not 'calm, reasonable and objective thinker'.
