Question When Serena Williams returns, which player...

...will correct their head-to-head first?

Serena Williams returns in a couple of weeks Her return to the tour can only be a good thing. She is a superstar with an amazing repitoire of shots and fantastic movement.

However, many of her head-to-head records are outdated to say the least. There are a handful of players with a very slight losing or tied record against Serena, and it is only a matter of time before these losing records are left as artifacts circa 2k2. Or is it?

So which player, if any, will take the lead first?

As much I would love to see Serena wipe her ass off the court, Justine will be hard to beat.

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

If Kim plays this summer like she did last summer, she'll be hard for anyone to beat. I don't have a clue about their H2H, though.

You know what you little gay boy, you're starting to annoy me The better question is "Whose ass will Serena kick when she gets back." I have a feeling she will start with you, and deal with the others later.


Hingis

Who's to say that Serena's head to head will change against any of them in a negative direction?

Well, LOL, since I feel forced to choose I'll say Sharapova.

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.
