Re: LMFAO at people said this AO would suck without Serena
All this talk about Serena being much better than this field is pretty much academic as those people are talking about Serena from Australian Open 2010, you could say the same about Henin 2007. The fact is that who knows what Serena 2011 will be like, she may come back as Jill Craybas 2004 Wimbledon Serena. If she had come back at this event, she probably would not have lasted into the second week, like her sister or Henin, as she would have come back too soon like them and probably aggravated her injury.
The fact is that tennis fans are going to have to get used to a world without Serena, Justine or Venus soon enough anyway, and this event has shown that the tennis can be exciting and the tournament can be great without them. Is that a surprise? Well, not really, tennis has always moved on and is bigger than any individual players.
