Serena better play Dubai or she'll fall out of the top 70

She better make an effort cause her ranking will fall badly again if she doesn't show up at all...

Does Serena really care what ranking she is, she is a multiple GS champion, she has been #1, I am sure if Serena is determined to come back and try and win more slams she won't care who or at what stage she has to play a top player, she will believe she can win.

Yes she will avoid Craybas by playing against Clijsters in the first round

If it falls too far, she will have to get a wildcard to enter tournaments because she will be ranked too low to get automatic entry. It didn't hurt Clijsters any thou. She also loses bye spots by being ranked at a certain level.

yes, but I am talking about a fit Serena mentally and physically who is determined to be at the top again, put another way if you were Kim, Amelie or Lindsay would you want Serena in the first round.

serena, this is not the time to try and make a miraculous comeback from the depths of the top 100, come on get your ass in gear, people will be plenty satisfied with a comeback from outside the top 40.

Serena: Australian Open Champion 2005

Venus: Wimbledon Champion 2005

Amelie Mauresmo- Amazing! YEC Champ 2005, AO 2006 CHAMP!!

Myskina, Davenport, Kuznetsova, Golovin, Ivanovic, Pierce, Schnyder, Mirza, Benesova

Lindsay Lee Waters, A-L Groenefeld, Dally Randriantefy, Nadia Petrova, Alicia Molik, Kim Clijsters

yeah, but who's to say she's going to get fit. I just don't want to see an out of shape Serena get murdered out there in the 1st round. That should never happen, ever.

Oh Serena

I really do hope she gets back to the top, and defending these Dubai points is a start. It's a shame to see her struggling like this, although it's clear she is lacking the fitness (and the motivation it seems) to compete at the highest level at the moment.

Whilst some may hate to admit it, the game does need her - she is, along with Maria and Venus, one of the most recognisable tennis players in the world.

And she does provide tennis boards with a lot to talk about

She will get fit if she still has the desire, that is the big question mark over Serena at the moment, if she has still has the desire to be a champion then the rest will fall into place.
