Predictions for Serena at RG : 3 scenarios

I have no idea...

1/ Deciding at the last minute, Serena withdraws from the FO, citing an injured leg.
2/ Still leg injured but feeling much better Serena decides to give it a try. She wins a few rounds but at one point retires during a match, still because of her bad leg.
3/Almost 100% Serena transcends herself once again in a GS tournament and goes on to win her 2nd RG title.

Unfortunately I think #2 will happen more or less. Unless she surprises us once gain.

Re: Predictions for Serena at RG : 3 scenarios

I have become a diehard Serena fan over the years. Even I am throwing in the towel on her. She has a zero chance of making it past round 1(please prove me wrong Serena..I need a miracle).IMHO, Serena needs to rest up for wimbledon. F- the clay already.

Re: Predictions for Serena at RG : 3 scenarios

for some reason I can't put my finger on, but for the first time probably ever, I'm not even remotely stressed about it and I fully expect a Williams to win. Goes against most logic at this point, but it's the feeling I get...fingers crossed. I'd be thrilled for Serena to take RG#2 after some very poor results at unquestionably her least favourite GS. Serena tends to do well when she's looking hopeless.

Re: Predictions for Serena at RG : 3 scenarios

it's a slam she will not retire in a match,if she didn't retire in a miami final no way is she retiring in a slam. A day's rest between matches will help any injuries. She may survive three rds but after that if she is not fully recovered, she may not win it.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I have to say I don't see any of those three scenarios occuring. Serena will play. She won't retire in the middle of a Grand Slam match and she won't win RG 2009.

I say she wins her 1st match, Serena never loses in the 1st round of a Slam and loses somewhere between the 2nd and 4th rounds. Very possible she will hint during interviews that she wasn't 100% fit but she will still complete her matches. Serena isn't one to give up mid-match.

Re: Predictions for Serena at RG : 3 scenarios

of course she'll win it, what kinda tennis fans and Serena fans are you guys? The FO is still a few days away, plenty of time for her to fully recover and then again win when she is the underdog. You know Williams rise to the ocassion when u least expext them to!

One match at time Just like we did at Wimbledon 2005 and 2007 for Venus.

Take your scneario number 1 because if she feels like she is not completely healed, she will w/d.

Re: Predictions for Serena at RG : 3 scenarios

I'd say none of these. She'll lose after 2 or 3 rounds but not because of retirement. She'll finish the match.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Venus
ANA

Re: Predictions for Serena at RG : 3 scenarios

Like other posters have said, Serena ALWAYS finishes her matches at Grand Slam.
I'd say she either loses in 3R or QF or wins the title.
