I love LOOOVE Serena. But I really wonder what is wrong? She seems slow, sluggish, well that could be rust. But still, she is not happy on the court. She doesn't show joy in playing tennis, I can't see it in her. If she is not enjoying tennis right now, then the results will not come. I know it's just an exhibition, but at least smile. I don't like seeing her like this, it gets me depressed. Even in 2005 Serena was not the same, I couldn't feel the joy of playing tennis.
The last time I really felt this was in during and after Wimbledon 2004. When she lost to Sharapova in the finals even then she was soooo joyful in tennis (this was the year she came back from that long time away from her knee surgery in 2003). I want that Serena back again, not this one. But I will wait until the Australian Open to see if she is happy, cause if she is not don't expect her to do well. She needs to be happy to suceed, and then she will start to win again.
