Can Serena Get Top Form Back...

In time to win the USO? Do you predict that she will win any USO series titles?

I think that she will win two USO series titles because she probably doesn't want to be a wild card heading into the USO.

Re: Can Serena Get Top Form Back...

Top form for Serena is AO 2007 final and she hasn't been in that form for some time now. Good enough form to win USO? Probably.

Re: Can Serena Get Top Form Back...

Serena is going to be a WC, no matter what. Unless she quickly enters whatever Tier IVA next week. And I highly doubt that she cares, or even realizes it.

She's played terribly in the USO warmups since 2001, and I wouldn't bet on that changing.

Re: Can Serena Get Top Form Back...

I think she can get back into top fitness. I don't think she'll hit peak form until the US Open though. I expect probably a couple of Quarter-final, Semi-final losses in her lead up tournaments, and then I expect her to be back and hungry for a major title.

Re: Can Serena Get Top Form Back...

Serena only wins slams, YECs and gold medals. So no she won't be winning any warm up tournaments.

Re: Can Serena Get Top Form Back...

Has been a long time since Serena won a regular tour event. Don't expect that to change for the summer. She'll have a nice run, play her matches and then hopefully be ready for the Open.

Always bet on black!

Uhumm...in fact since her comeback in ' 04. Serena has only won Miami 3x, China Open, Charleston as regular tournaments. Yet has won YEC, 7 majors since then.

Always bet on black!

She won Bangalore in 2008 too : 6 regular events in 7 years I can't even remember the last time she won a title during the American hc season.But things could be different this year as she really needs matches and points.
