If Serena had won Cincinnati

If she'd won she may not even have thought to need to play Acura.

If Justine hadn't gotten her ass handed to her at Wimbledon, do you think she would've withdrawn from SD?

I hate such threads!

What if ... Justine Fan stopped posting them??

I'm not a prophet.
Ask Serena what would she do!!

Yes because she was knackered ... win or lose. She got to 3 finals in 5 weeks (2 being GS's and 1 tier II), which is the most any player has played in that timescale.

Next?

But she didn't win and did withdraw.

Just enjoy it when she plays and cheer on other players when she doesn't.

Yes I think she would have still withdrawn, winning in Cincinatti would've given her more reason to do so. The Williams sisters traditionally play a small schedule throughout the year anyway

No it's not a hate thread, I was thinking if she had won the tournament, would she have had more confidence, had momentum and ready to "blow up the joint". That's all ... no hate intended!

The title of the thread could as well be "If Dokic won a 10k challenger"

Would she be back?....

What's with "If" threads anyway?

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!
