Serena Williams to replace Justine Henin in a Belgian exho



PatrickHaumont
RT @gdurand_lesoir: Serena Williams remplacera Justine Henin, forfait, à « Best of Belgium » devenu « Best of the World.Et Wickmayer???????? half a minute ago via TweetDeck

On the 8th July, Serena Williams will replace Justine Henin, who withdrew, at "Best of Belgium" which is now "Best of the World"

Why not Wickmayer or even Flipper ? Firstly, it was to show to Belgium that two great champions from different regions could get along well !

Elina Svitolina will PEAK in 2016

I hope this isn't true. Serena needs to rest her shoulder and hone her ground game.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

WTF
Leave Belgium for the Belgian players. Im sure theyd be happier with Yanina or Flipper anyway

What is with all of these exhibitions? She needs to ditch Stanford, forget WTT (sorry BJK) and go to Bolliteri to rest and work on her ground game.

I think the hype meant they needed somebody high profile to step in. I am sure the organizers will be relieved. It is a record-breaking event after all.

Re: Serena Williams to replace Justine Henin in a Belgian exho

Serena.... no.

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

They must be paying her a shit load of money.

First of all, according to all the e-mails I've gotten, Serena's not scheduled to play Stanford this year. Second of all, a six-figure guarantee can cure a lot of what ails you.

Re: Serena Williams to replace Justine Henin in a Belgian exho

I wonder how much they paid her to take a dive?

I am not conceited, I am just convinced
