Serena is amazing! She has power, brains, and fighting spirit. That's the total package, which is hard to beat on and off the court.

Re: Serena Williams on form is unbeatable ,who agrees?

I've never seen someone beat on ON FORM Serena, but everybody knows that on these boards- even if it was true- many here wouldn't admit it. So, what's the point?

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

Re: Serena Williams on form is unbeatable ,who agrees?

She's definitely close, but nobody is unbeatable, it's a game and certain things come down to chance. Venus/JuJu/Martina/Masha are the players most capable of brining Rena down, but of course they have to be in sparkling form.

Venus Masha Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Bencic Kristyna&Karo Keys Dani
Osaka Vika Petko Simona Broady Robi CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval


Martina Hingis Forever!!!

Re: Serena Williams on form is unbeatable ,who agrees?

When serena is in form, it takes a cpariati to give her the run around. In the 2002/3 season, only jen could bother serena despite the lop sided h2h.
The likes of davenport, amelie only started beating serena in the last couple years when they were playing at their best and serena not so. Explans a alot.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Serena Williams on form is unbeatable ,who agrees?

I have never seen anyone beat an on form Henin
I have never seen anyone beat an on form Mauresmo
I have never seen anyone beat an on form Hingis

this means absolutely zero.
Serena is a great great player. The players who will beat her are the ones who will be able to "get her off form". i.e; try to get her off balance by mixing it up, staying very aggressive themselves and serving out of their mind.
You can get Hingis "off form" by taking her confidence away by playing deep hard and aggressive.
You can get henin off form by hitting it very deep and hard in her backhand, by serving so that she can't step in on the return.
you can get Mauresmo off form by attacking her rather weak forehand and coming in to the net and not letting yourself get drawn into endless spin rallies etc.

every topplayer is imho unbeatable "on her top form". The thing is, how do you get her out of that topform. That's how tennis and any other sport works. If any of these player loose, is it because they were "off form"? Probably. The question than remains, who made them go "off form"? That's just mo.

Exactly. Imo, there is no such thing as two players playing their best, because "their best" can never be defined. One can only play better relative to his or her opponent on any given day. No such thing as unbeatable, because there will always be someone out there who can take you out. Federer, as great as he is, can be beaten by someone who just plays out of their mind and whacks 200 mph shots. Plausible? Not likely. But possible that there is such a specimen out there, and possibly that we just havent found yet.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Re: Serena Williams on form is unbeatable ,who agrees?

This has been disscussed many times and I still stand by that I have never seen Serena loose when she is playing well . That cannot be said for some others players who play very good matches and just get outplayed. When Serena loses, it is usually becuase she makes 55+ errors so the opponent just has to get the ball back!

Re: Serena Williams on form is unbeatable ,who agrees?

Serena is in good form for sure. But she is still beatable player. Actually to be honest Petrova and Shahar Peer got close to beating them. Petrova choked in the second set when serving for the match at 5-3. Peer also served for the match in the third at 6-5. So judging by that she still a beatable player.

Well then, in-form Serena was beaten by Henin in Berlin final 2002 and Rubin in LA quarters, Clijsters in Championships final etc...

For your dolly Polly sleep has flown
Don't dare let her tremble alone
For the witcher, heartless, cold
Paid in coin of gold
He comes he'll go leave naught behind
But heartache and woe
Deep, deep woe

Re: Serena Williams on form is unbeatable ,who agrees?

I don't know why people are saying that right now she is beatable.
That's not the question
But I have to admit, most of the time when she's on form she is unbeatable. I think it was her drive and determination to win that set her apart from the rest.
