Serena's looking FRIGHTENINGLY good


She's also a favorite in dubs w/ Vee

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

uhhh did you watch her last hopman cup singles cup match against Molik? That was far far far from FRIGHTENINGLY good. Still pushing the ball and Molik was dictating play a lot in the 2nd set and hitting harder than Serena (well flatter but her balls were moving through court pretty fast while Serena was still pushing the ball with most of her shots sitting up nicely with plenty of time for Molik, and Molik is SLOW, to get to them). Actually Serena looked exactly the same as she did against MOlik in Wimbledon.

Now i eagerly await the barrage of bad rep from Serena fans.

ohh and the most reasonable answer to this question:

1. Henin
2. Serena
3. Venus
4. Davenport
5. Amelie

This is all based on most recent form and results.

I was referring to her fitness (which has been her undoing in the past). The match play aspect will look rough of course. I mean it's her second match in almost 3 months. I don't expect Justine to double bagel Safarova, or even bagel her really Serena always plays herself into majors, which is much easier to do now since she's fitter.

And if not for that injury against Hantuchova, who knows what would have happened, so saying she looks the same as Wimbledon, is compliment enough.
