Re: What a year for Serena Williams!

"amazing" is an overused word. good year yes, not as good as in the past but a good year all the same

Re: What a year for Serena Williams!

Better than 2007 and 2008 combined. Hopefully 2010 will be even better.

Re: What a year for Serena Williams!

50-12
3 Titles (AO, W, YEC)
6+ Million Dollars is prize money

One of the best years by any player this decade (below 2002 and 2007)

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

Re: What a year for Serena Williams!

The entire rest of the WTA would kill to have a "good year" if that's all Serena did this year...

...I guess everyone else just flat out sucks if Serena was merely "good".

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

Re: What a year for Serena Williams!

"amazing" suggests that it was unexpected and that it took your breath away/dazzled you. for me her win against Maria in 2007 AO was amazing, but I fully expected her to win slams and have a shot at this tourney so she is just fulfilling my expectations

Re: What a year for Serena Williams!

Serena had a great year and indeed any other player would have loved to have a season like Serena but she had to many early losses and played poorly outside of the GS to often this year for it to be an amazing year imo. Though if you take her singles and doubls results together this year it really is quite the accomplishment

Re: What a year for Serena Williams!

It was an amazing year. She could have won RG and the US Open and 2 GSs and the YEC is something all other players wold give anything for. Even though I really hated what she did at the US Open, I take my hat off to her. If she really goes for it 2010 could be an even better year.

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.
