I know you're gonna say : "Okay, another thread/poll about Serena", but there's something I truly don't understand about her and her fans. Most of them seem to be in total denial that she's been having an awful year (even if she won the AO).
I used to love her (my avatar shows Justine and Serena smiling), and truly hope she'll reach once again her level of 2002.
BUT, when someone tries to say that Serena had a bad year, most of her fans come and say "She won a GS, unlike Davenport or Sharapova".
But, Serena's year is really "shameful" : her tennis-career is really getting lower and lower, and it doesn't seem to get better. (In the same way, there's nothing really "shameful" in Davenport or Sharapova's year. They had some disappointments, but not as bad as Serena's.)
If I were Serena, I would be annoyed of showing such a bad level of tennis, and I would go on training and training to reach a decent level. Instead of that, it seems to her that she's still the best, and many of her fans seem to put up with her AO title, as if Serena winning a GS was such a big achievement (we all know what she can do, even when far from her best).
Sorry, but I just can't understand people saying Serena's been having an ok year.
So I'd like to know, if I'm the only one to think this way ?
The question is : So far, what do you remember the most about Serena's 2005 year ? Her AO title or her slump ?
