What happened to Serena @ Wimbledon (2005)?

*Why didnt she bring the same mental toughness that she brought to her most recent Aussie Open finals? What did she choke up 4-2 in the second?

Serena was in no shape, physically or mentally, to play that tournament. Period.

What happen was, she wasn't in shape and got beat. it's that simple.

Many said she simply shouldn't have shown up, but Serena loves Wimby.

Serena had a bad ankle from Amelia Island that year and decided at the last minute to play Wimbledon . Her father told her to stay home but she went and messed up her ankle further.

Re: What happened to Serena @ Wimbledon (2005)?

The same thing that happened to Maria at AO 2007. They underestimated their opponents when they shouldn't have and ended up getting blown away by players who were "on" that day.

P.S. I assume you are talking about Wim 2004 final

Re: What happened to Serena @ Wimbledon (2005)?

Are you talking about when she lost to Craybas? If so she was just out of match play and not in good shape. Serena's game is extremely high risk so she can only get away with so much if she wants to win matches. If she won she may have played herself into the tournament like Venus did. Although they would have met in R4 so that's another issue. The motivation to win may not have been so high knowing her sister was waiting in the next round.

Serena was extremely out of shape and playing on a fractured ankle.

In that case, Serena just got smoked, just like Sharapova got smoked January 27 in Melbourne. Happens to the best of 'em.
