I haven't seen enough of Serena to realy make a definitive judgement. But I suspect if she is NOT in peak condition yet, then it has to do more with lifestyle than anything else. I think that perhaps there is still some question of where her focus is, on tennis or on show business. Has she really been putting in the time training or not?
Ironically, I suspect she would get a bigger reception in show business if she shed a few pounds. Males continue to dominate the business, in terms of being in power, and most men like a more svelt actress than a chunky one.
But the question is, how hard has Serena been training? I suspect none of us can actually answer that question. But here is another one. I don't actually member seeing Serena on crutches. Was she? Are there any pictures?
