Serena to play mixed doubles at AO and FO again?

As a staunch Serena fan, I would love to see Serena win all 12 grand slam titles aka the "boxed set". She's so close, but she has to act fast, since she's already 26 years old. Anyone know if Serena plans to get the last 2 grand slam titles?

The doubles court is larger, though the individual court is smaller. Still, just in case something unpredictable happens, like a death in the family, Serena should get those two titles ASAP, no?

Serena has much more important things to focus on rather than getting two mixed doubles grand slam titles.

I think Ree should just focus on getting some more singles titles. Perhaps another 10?

She can barely play singles in a major.

You forgot about Serena's AO 2007 win? It just happened last year. Geez, people are so shortsighted, they can only see the most recent slam.

No offence, but if you're going to insult a player, then don't open yourself up too. Serena can barely play singles? At least she's playing.

Mixed is an entirely different game.... its all about the weak link (the girl).... and lets face it having Serena on your side of the net will always be a plus....
