If Serena if thinking of playing in the ATP

She better forgets it.

I was today in the qualifying for the Canadian Open, I saw some players practicing and there was a sort of exhibition/practice between Krajicek and El Aynouyi (sp?)

Well, at some point they started to hit the ball hard, and I mean hard, I've seen Serena on that very same court last year and her groundstrokes were pooof compared to that.

I also saw Marat Safin hitting with Kafelnikov and that's hitting hard, I don't think any woman would have a slightly remote chance to even put pretend to return those shots, and Kafelnikov had no problems, with would mean he would have a real easy time returning Serena's groundstrokes.

I saw Greg Rusedski serving and a player I don't know returning his serves very well, we are talking of a player who serves consistenly overy 135 mphs, and he was trying to serve hard.

This is not putting down Serena by any means, and of course I knew this before watching this guys, but I think that the people (and the media) that think she would have a chance in the ATP should get to see some ATP matches and have a reality check

Who ever said she had a chance? Are things being resuscitated from several lifetimes ago?

I don't have a sig. So sue me.

Justine would probably suffer a terrible injury if she could even put her racquet on the ball, it would probably slam her against the wall.

Was this thread created to, like, enlighten us or something? I mean, this subject is as dead as a freaking doorknob already. Who really gives a shit whether Serena, WTA's world #1, would make a splash or become victim of a wipeout on the ATP tour? She's doing just fine where she is, don't-'cha-think?

Dammitt, Venus!!!

I am sorry I didn't know we were writing a thesis for a PHD in hardware and every single thread needed to have a subliminal purpose.

First, for your small mind, many people have been asking how Serena would do in the ATP.

Second, Serena herself said she wanted to play in the ATP, maybe she was joking but it deserved and official response from the ATP tour.

Third, I start thread on whatever my ass is feeling, if you don't like it, tooooo bad, I have never read anything worth to read from you, so why don't you just do the same?

If I fucking want to diss you beloved goddess, I will without asking you and if you feel I should be banned just e-mail the administrators, you have my bless for that.

Who gives a shit about how Serena would behave at the ATP? I do, you don't, I couldn't care less, who give a shit about your feelings anytime somebody dares to mention Serena's sacred name? I don't certainly.

Fingon.
If you feel like an ass and talk like an ass maybe there is a good reason for that but I don't think anybody would want you banned.

Aren't you who are attacking Fingon some of the people who bring up old news on Martina and Capriati on a regular basis? I envy you getting to watch all that, Fingon.

BE realistic, do u really thinks she will? ast time I checked serena was not that stupid. You just want her to leave so she can stop dominating. Why in the hell does she wanna leave when she's doin a grip of crap on the WTA.

And here comes the voice of fairness, one of the self apointed board police officers. Can you ever mind your business and stay out of some discussions? You are everywhere and it is never anything worth saying. Is there ever anything to do in Tulsa, you should find out and get out more... and to be fair, I dont think Fig Newton said anything all that bad...

Will you be there?

Fingon, you blew it, then you start cursing. What's the matter with you? Get hold of yourself, my man.

BTW, I'll step on York Univ ground (venue for Canadian Open men's) for some matches this week.

Dang folks are getting mighty desperate to find an answer to the Princess of Power when they are looking to the ATP. Serena is that awesome.....well I guess she is. Never have I witnessed fans constantly comparing lady players to men! Even got Johnny Mac challenging them. Well forget about it, Venus and Serena will stay in the WTA and dominate ! They will win the tierI's, slams, and tour championships. So just get used to 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.
