Serena's ultimate goal?

Serena currently has singles titles in AO, FO, Wimbledon, USO and YEC, doubles titles in AO, FO, Wimbledon, USO and Olympics, and mixed doubles titles in Wimbledon and USO.

Serena just needs mixed doubles titles at AO and FO and a singles title in Olympics to have every single prestigious title.

Do you think Serena's ultimate goal is to get those 2 mixed doubles titles and an Olympics gold in singles?

Re: Serena's ultimate goal?

She said she also wants double digits in singles GS. It's obvious that she cares about grand slams more than regular tourney wins.

Venus Williams. Serena Williams.

I may be wrong, but I think Serena's ultimate goal is to win her next match. At least, that's what it should be.

Re: Serena's ultimate goal?

Her ultimate goal should be to stop losing to players she should be defeating.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

In all fairness, Serena has only really lost to quality players if you exclude the loss to Bammer and the retirement against Latisha.

Really, don't even look at me...

Re: Serena's ultimate goal?

I don't think she really cares about the Mixed titles - if she wanted them, she could just pair with Miryni and get them in one or two tries.

The Olympic gold? Hard to tell how big of a goal the 08 games will be for her. It will be as hard (if not harder) than a Slam to win as far as competition and other people's drives to win it...but if she peaks, she has one of the best shots at winning.

Re: Serena's ultimate goal?

The time for doubles has passed. Serena needs to just focus on singles - she's got another 5 years on tour if she keeps herself in shape.

Re: Serena's ultimate goal?

I suppose she would want to win the whole collection of slams, plus the doubles and singles at the Olympics.

That would be a great achievement.
