Why is this question even asked? You know these type of tournaments don't matter to Serena!!!

Re: Will Serena Williams win a US Open leadup title this year?

Here is the thing ... these girls come into these secondary tournaments (even major stars like Elena) all gungho about beating Serena. So they are fighting like crazy with their best tennis for a win and Serena is thinking, "there are bigger fish to fry. You can have this tournament." That's why she laughed at Safina last year.

Re: Will Serena Williams win a US Open leadup title this year?

Serena just won Wimbledon. That nice big Rosewater dish. I'm sure she does not really care about winning a trophy from these smaller events. If she goes out and wins then its cool, but she's not gonna be expending too much energy to win

Is Istanbul a hard court or clay court tournament?

First of all, she's never won an MM. And Montreal and Cincinnati are Premier 5 events.

Re: Will Serena Williams win a US Open leadup title this year?

If her opponents in Istanbul make her work too hard, then no. It's not in her interest -- or even the WTA/ITF's -- for her to be banged up and bandaged by August.

But a win in Cincy or Montreal would send shivers through the US Open locker room. She might go for one of them if she's looking to build aura and make her trip to #14 a bit easier.

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

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Re: Will Serena Williams win a US Open leadup title this year?

My prediction:

Istan - QF Tank to some no name player who then becomes goddess for a week on TF

Cinci - Win

Montreal - Walkover/Retire at some early round QF or before

I would be fine if it went like that

A week off to rest for US open and inevitable 14th SLAM!!!

Re: Will Serena Williams win a US Open leadup title this year?

If she decides to play Istanbul, she might actually win it. But it's more likely she will withdraw

Re the others, she won't win. tough players in the draw and when serena does not really care a lot of them can beat her, eg JJ, ED,...

Oh honey, when your Serena Williams they're all MM events

Slams, YEC & Gold Medals are the real sh*t, the rest is probs just in Richards attic collecting dust. As if her Bangalore trophy will be anywhere near her Venus Rosewaters You guys crack me up.

Hell no.
Smaller tournaments are irrelevant to Serena and cause injuries.

If Serena turns up in Istanbul, she may slip up and win the title with the weak field currently entered.

There is a greater chance she might win a doubles title though before the U.S. Open.

Her last 6 titles were Slams (US, Wimby X2, Aussie X2) and YEC so no

*DEATH* But do yo blame her? She makes way more money winning a slam that a MM tournament and gets way more press coverage=endorsement deals winning slams than a tournament like Bangalore.

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.
