Why Serena won the Australian Open 2007?

In a warm-up tournament (low tier) , lost to Bammer in the QF. She was out of form, coming back from injury, a little overweight. She beat Nadia (being a set down and 3-5), Jankovic, Peer, Nicole and Maria, players she should have lost (exception was Jankovic, that was trashed by Serena) All the odds were stacked against her, her ranking was below 80 (or 70), how did she managed to win this tournament? Maybe she hit a lot of lucky shots to win, or maybe she only wins when she´s really interested and where Henin isn´t playing (exception: Miami 2007)...

Re: Why Serena won the Australian Open 2007?

She won because no matter what her ranking is, she's still a class above most of the other players in terms of ability, hence her 7 Slam wins before Australia And she showed that in the 4th round and in the final where she was amazing in both matches...

She wasn't in top shape/form, which is why she had a few less than comfortable matches, but she's still a threat to win any title no matter her form/shape...

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

She won because she played better tennis than her opponents did.

it's really simple.

Re: Why Serena won the Australian Open 2007?

The question should be- "why did Serena only win the Aussie Open"
1. French Open- Played bad
2. Wimbledon- Crippled
3. Us Open- Lack of match play; and crippled

Then she gained a lot of weight and her knee injury flared up again... but in 2004 she was slower comparing to 2003 and before.
