Re: Will Serena play another tour match in 2007?

I hope she won't for her sake. Obviously her left knee isn't healed yet, and she should have followed her father's advice and rest for an undefined period till it stops hurting. She shouldn't have played the us open as well with the way she moved and might have even caused her knee more harm during that time. Now it could be the case where she caused her knee a permanent damage , if she doesn't rest in a hurry , she could cross the point of no return.

I hope not. Losing to Kuznetsova is a very low point for her. Rest and come back strong for 2008, she clearly needs time off.

Re: Will Serena play another tour match in 2007?

I think people need to start looking at Serena's lingering knee problem for what it is. It took eight months to rehab it after surgery which is a long time. I'm beginning to think that five years later, with swelling problems and frequent tournament withdrawals since her surgery that the knee is affecting her career much more than the outside interests Serena is often criticized for.

Another surgery at this point would cripple Serena's tournament career which is why I think she's doing everything she possibly can to postpone it. In all likelihood she will not play anymore in 2007, but who could blame her?

A fighter like Serena doesn't want to go out with injury.

Svetlana is the #2 ranked player in the world. Stop being dismissive and disrespectful towards Svetlana, who was favored to win that match.

Right now Kuznetsova easily is the 2nd best player in the world. Game-wise Stuttgart-2007 is her best tournament since Miami-2006, the level of tennis she has shown is extremely high.

Re: Will Serena play another tour match in 2007?

I think Serena must play and she must take her whippings. That and only that will allow her to return to being a great tennis player. Serena has little left but her serve, that ground game is a hot mess. She has to know, Richard has to know, and Oracene has to know her game is a mess. Maybe that is why she showed up in Stuttgart alone! This I feel is a pivotal time in Serena's life and she cannot go it alone. Wonder what she is thinking, but cannot remember anytime in either Sister's life where they showed up anywhere by themselves. Never happened. Wonder if Serena is now bucking her coaches and parents? Sounds like it.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Re: Will Serena play another tour match in 2007?

I said it's a low point for Serena. Losing to someone as as Kuznetsova, for her, is probably embarrassing. She has high standards. I thought Serena's game would pick up, but it didn't, and I'm worried about her. I suppose she's just not match tight.

She should play at least another tournament in Europe, since she's come all the way over here she might aswell

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Have you watched the match? Have you watched Kuznetsova v Radwanska.
Kuznetsova plays probably the best tennis in her life at the moment. She's staying aggressive but not rushing, she's hitting winners all over place, her serving game is huge, she's playing smart. She's just ON.
Radwanska had to play her best match in career only to push Kuznetsova to three sets. Serena just couldn't raise the bar, simply couldn't handle Sveta's game.
