When will Serena and Venus be 100%?

I really want to know that,
any time they lost the match, they said they are not 100%.

Anybody can tell me when they can be 100%?

because I am really tired of this stupid execuse.

Re: When will Serena and Venus be 100%?

Serena is quite obviously not 100%. You can tell if you use your optical organs.

Venus is in better shape, but many posters agree her fitness is hampered by her Anemia. If Venus can overcome Anemia - i don't expect to hear that claim.

Serena needs to work - Period.

Re: When will Serena and Venus be 100%?

I agree that Serena is certanly not at her best, but neither sister claims to be even close to 100% at any moment in time.
I can say one thing - not after any defeat at the hands of Justine, or anyone else for that matter, that's for sure. Venus is actually gracious in her post-match interviews, but we all know Serena.

Re: When will Serena and Venus be 100%?

i doubt that any champion will ever admit to be 100%.
now if it's about when we'll see them playing like when they trashed everyone again, probably not.
if it's about being totally healthy, well hopefully relatively often.

to new beginnings.

Re: When will Serena and Venus be 100%?

When they spank the #200 in the world, they're 100%

When they lose to the #1 player in the world they're like .0000001%

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

What are they when they spank the #2, 3, 4, or 5 players in the world?

Re: When will Serena and Venus be 100%?



When will we be done with this 100% bs? I don't think Serena will ever get back to her physical condition in 2002/03, but I'm not going to call that "not being at 100%." She's just a different player now, just like Justine and most other players. Some players have been able to put the hard work when things have gone wrong, and some didn't. I still think she can improve her physical form, but I'm honestly skeptical in terms of how much she can improve. Regardeless, she isn't "slow" by WTA standards, and she'll always be in contention based on her hitting and her serve alone.

As for Venus, she definitely is in very good shape physically. We'll see if her form continues.

It's funny. No body discusses Justine's percentage, and I'm pretty sure there were tons of times where she didn't feel at her best physically or whatever, especially last year.

Speaking of spanking, you're talking outta your ass.

Never. Pro tennis players always have some aches and pains etc. It's just part of it.

Re: When will Serena and Venus be 100%?

Venus has anaemia so of course she isn't 100%. Serena hasn't been focusing as hard so she isn't as match fit PLUS she has her wrist injury. I don't know if you noticed, but you need a wrist to play tennis.

It's not an excuse, it's a fact. It's like saying Justine's divorce was an excuse for not playing.

I Nadal. Serena Williams. Venus Williams

Like: Haas. Tsonga. Kiefer. Bartoli. Mirza. Zheng. Bolleli. Safina. Mauresmo. Monfils.Jie.


Hate: Djokovic. Lubjicic. Sharapova. Murray. Dementieva. Soderling.

Healthy when they win, unhealthy when they lose.

Or at least that's the idea they have brought forth.

I hope to see them both at good condition levels soon.

In their retirements! In 2005 Wimbledon final, i think Venus was close to 100%, and Davenport was 50%, because of a bad back

If Serena Jameka Williams and Venus Ebonee Star Williams continue to win the Australian and Wimbledon every couple of years, why would they ever need to be 100%?

Remember: They have a life. Tennis was just the seed money for their business ventures.
