Expect Serena To Be Really Lean Come May

Serena said in an article that she wants to get really, really fit before the French Open. She said that will be the only chance she has to take the title from Justine. So I'm expecting a 2002-03 lean Serena

When did she say that? I haven't read this?

I really don't like all this assuming people are doing about Justine and Roland Garros.
This is one Justine fan who is not boasting about a 5th one, but instead waiting to see what happens.

Re: Expect Serena To Be Really Lean Come May

Guess this answers my question as to whether she will remain motivated...here's hoping her plans come to fruition.

Re: Expect Serena To Be Really Lean Come May

I hope you're right, J', but I don't think we'll see Leanerena, circa '02, ever again. She's grown up into her Woman's body. I definitely think we'll see her leaner if that's what we say we're gonna see, but not '02.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

Re: Expect Serena To Be Really Lean Come May

She needs to not only be fit but well-prepared. She needs to play at least three red clay events with decent results so that she can mentally prepare herself for the French Open.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

I'm with you, it's an un-Serena thing to say.
Although I'm sure that Serena wants that RG title badly and her beating Henin must have boosted Serena tremendously. I expect a very fit Serena showing up.

She can win more FOs. It's all about fitness, preparation, and match play leading up to Roland Garros.

not only that, but she doesn't actually *have* the title. It belongs to Svetlana "I will probably lose in R1" Kuznetsova

^^^^ for all my ladies

Re: Expect Serena To Be Really Lean Come May

I still think she can get back to her 2004 shape.

I still have belief in that.

DON'T WAVE YOUR HAND AT ME GURLLL!

Re: Expect Serena To Be Really Lean Come May

I don't expect Serena to look any different in May to how she is currently.

Actually, you can consider them co-defenders of sorts like Serena and Kim at USO 2009 since Henin was the champion before she retired.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

She seemed in good shape at AO I thought

Me too. The dress was not very flattering but it was nice to see her with long hair and in a dress, not a two piece. It shows you that Serena hasn't changed that much, it just appeared that way.

And I don't care if Serena is 300 lbs, if she can still win slams and come from behind to win, I'll enjoy it. So will she.
