although I was tripping with the fact they were mentioned in a post together. I love me some Serena but she'll bounce back from this just like my rent will still be due by the fifth. Basically good luck to the remaining women and let us look forward. You just don't forget how to win, you do though need to remember what got you there in the first place and with a little luck, voila we'll all be happy again

I don't doubt slams in their futures but it makes me wonder if either will be fit enough to really "dominate" the tour again.

I browse once in a while.

Every player can have bad tournements. Serena was injured and Justine haven't played on grass since two years. They will be back, that's sure

Wozniak - Wozniacki - Cibulkova

Justine hasn't played on grass in two years. She lost to a good grass courter who beat her on grass before.

Serena wasn't well. She lost to a player who played consistent aggressive tennis.

People lose when there are mitigating circumstances and when there isn't. Both will obviously bounce back from their respective losses.

JUSTINE?- Came off a big win in RG, fatigued, body still doesn't recover that quick, played a sloppy match.

SERENA?- Knee injury, ankle injury, no match preparation, no conditioning, no practice spells disaster. She said in her press conference that she will start practicing alot more seriously and consistently, which if she does, can still bring her great success the rest of this season and at the USO.

Not particularly worried for either, except Serena has the injuries that she still hast to heal so her situation sucks more.
HEy even if they fail to win another match this year (which of course wont happen) they both won Slams, they have had a good year.

I'm not so sure Slams are in Serena's future. Since the AO, this string of bad losses puts her in a pretty bad slump... and how long will it take her to get fit and confident again? When (if) she does get fit and confident again, how much better will the competition be?

It doesn't matter how good the competition is. When Serena is fit and confident, she has the determination factor and she forces herself to not lose matches. She was in no way the best player at the Australian this year, but she was so determined. Did you see the 3 match points? All to the forehand side and all shots were amazing! No matter what people say about Serena not caring, it shows off in her game. She wanted to win so bad in Australia. She even cried after today's match. She obviously cares a lot for tennis and the haters need to recognize!

I see your point, but again I must say that Sharapova's second serves on match points @ Australia were about 25 mph slower than what she usually delivers.

Serena will have to stop wasting energy on other things. Somehow I don't believe that's going to happen.

Serena used to attack lindsays first and second serves liek they were 75 miles per hour. i seriously doubt whether Maria's second serve was 25 mph less or not will have much to do with it. maybe Maria needs more conditioning and training. Why did her serve drop off so badly? When serena heals she will definitely win more slams. I just dont see anyone else able to win 4 slams a year and she not be included in that list. If she isnt going to win one, then who is gonanreplace her atthe trophy stands?? maybe maria, lindsay? perhaps. Mauresmo? i doubt it.Dementieva? not likely but possible. Kim? perhaps . Justine on clay.
