Re: Is Serena Past Her Peak and Will Never Win a Slam Again?
Someone (can't recall who) said recently on one of the many threads on this topic (can't remember which) that the days when Serena can just turn up at a slam and play herself into form are over. I think this pretty much sums it up. If she can have a good run in lead-up events (like she did in the USO series last year) she can still be very nearly unbeatable. If she continues to go AWOL for long periods, she is no longer quite good enough to be a strong contender when the slams come around (although even then she can't be completely ruled out). In short, she needs to start planning her schedule better than she has been doing up till now.
Covering your ass. Can I call 'em or what?
Don't worry, if Serena was still playing at 50 people would still be covering their asses by saying, "you can never completely count Serena out" because the minute everybody says that, she'll make them once again look foolish. Look at all the ass covering in this thread and nobody knows who anybody is in real life. But then everybody here knows about thread bumping.
For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.
The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare
