Nope serena 2002 was too scary..
BS...YES she's a better player than she was, even in that mythical '02-03.
True she's lost that pure agressiveness in her game, not as dynamic and tenacious, and willing to fight for every point, but we have to look at what she gained in it's place. Her serve was NOWHERE
it is now, as it has fully matured. Of course it was always a great weapon, now it has reached it's full potential.
Also though she has definitely slowed down, and lost some of her explosiveness in her footwork...let's be honest, her footwork has always
been kind of Wonky, and awkward!! Because she can't run down every ball, and send it back for a clean winner like she once did, instead she's learned to play a lot smarter in constructing points, playing the percentages and thereby conserving energy. But with all that being said, for the most part when she needs to be firing on all cylinders, and positively stingy on the court, the' Old Serena' does make an appearence!!
