Serena's return is SO OVERRATED by this board... don't expect too much, boos.

Not everyone can come back and blast everyone off the court.

The more I am reading you, guys, the more I am laughing at you.

Do you actually believe she can pull a AO 2007 again? LMFAO !
Of course she can.... Never write a champion off... But I mean, she has much more chances to struggle than to play/serve like GOATrena and to beat Wozniacki 6-0 6-0 then Madusah 7-5 5-7 7-6 in the final of US Open...

I mean, she had two fucking foot surgeries, she had a several fucking blood clots, she is on fucking blood thinners, and yet she is back at the training ???
She already made a huge step !!! A lot of players would have retired (and it would have been understandable).

But I have the feeling that everyone expects Serena to be back like nothing has happened. It might be possible, but UNLIKELY.

Keep that in mind. 2007 AO was for sure amazing. 2009 USO Clijsters was amazing too. But Serena came back in 2006 and was struggling. And Clijsters was pregnant, not sick and injured.

So don't expect too much from her... or else you might be disappointed. I think some of Serena fans actually think like me....
Remember when we expected Justine to do a great run at the AO 2011 ? Her elbow injury finally got the best of her.

And I have some others examples... But please, I am tired to read "Wait wait wait for the return of the champion to show who is the TRUE queen !!!!!!!" , we all know how she was playing before that injury, and that's good enough. She won Wimbledon. I don't give a damn if she fails her return, if she loses in straights to Wozniacki, she will remain Serena Williams.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

I think you are right! Of course I'm curious to see how she will play, but I have also the feeling that she would be happy herself having a competitive Top 10 level.

But who knows? Maybe she surprises us again?

On the other side, I don't think that her come back is overrated. Her fans love her and want to see her back on court as fast as possible what is absolutely understandable!

Yeah, as someone said (he has such a complicated name to type He is a Yaroslava and Niculescu fan and supports a lot of low ranked players and often argues with sammy01 lol), it would be a huge success for Serena to return and to actually play at a decent level, even if she won't be able to play at a championship Slam level.

threads like this are so useless
actually i'm not even a Serena fan and i'm happy after all what happened to her she's back on court.I mean she was really close to a retirement because of a health problem so be back on a tennis court is already a win for her and her fans so if you have a bit of brain close this thread because we really don't need it,if you want to share your opinion you can write a post but a thread about what you think it's really too much because nobody's care

I agree.People for some reason expect her to come back in GOAT form but it's not gonna happen.She's been through some serious shit and out of the game for so long. She may never play her best tennis again.

Ahahaha
No as long as Azarenka wins a Slam soon, I don't care if Serena wins another Slam She has been established herself as the best of her generation and by far.

Yeah thanks Sorry Shvedbarilescu

Oh wow thanks for the reminder, the d of Shved is annoying though. I have the tendency to always forget it.

Then why everyone expects Serena to crush Caroline? and see other threads....

See, even Lucifer agrees with me.

EDIT : And I think my thread is more useful than some threads such as... Wozniacki looks like Gagarin

The fact that she has fought through some really serious health and emotional issues and is going to comeback is an achievement in itself. Really proud of her for doing that and not quitting when the going gets tough.

please, as long as she can train her serve normally, she will get back to winning ways easily. she doesn't need to be in tip top shape to win, as her game is not based on movement or footwork, but on muscling the ball.

I'm just here for a vikapower sports psychologist quote on Serena's final days + insight on Sharapova's next 10 slam victories supplanted by Azarenka for the next 10.
