Istanul, Cincinatti, Monteal is what she's playing.

Judging by who's entered in Istanbul, it looks like anything less than the title there would be an embarrassing loss.

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

It is mor appropriate to ask if she will ever win another non slam title again? Venus will win a title though, she specialises in non slam events.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

You can think she should win Istanbul, but she has played MM tournys before and lost against Zakopalova...

Probably not. Maybe if she gets lucky with an easy draw.
Otherwise, I dont see it.

We all know the question that should be asked is 'Does Serena want another MM title?' and the answer to the thread will be resolved. IF she doesnt want, she wont bother.

She has to play an international tournament in the WTA rulebook.

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

She could win all 3 or lose In the first round of all 3. She's still the overwhelming favorite at the US Open. That being said, I think she'll take 1 of the 3.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Serena.[21]

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

Depends on whether she can keep up her form from Wimbledon and how her opponents are playing. I don't know when she last won a title between Wimby and USO but it would be disappointing if she didn't win Istanbul.

Another? Serena doesn't have any MM titles yet.

Montreal is not a MM title.
