Serena Losing proves hard for a woman 30 years of age or older to win a grand slam!!!
Very few women in WTA open era history have won grand slams at AGE THIRTY AND BEYOND. Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova are only ones I can think of in the modern era who managed to do it. The 1980s and 1990s it was easier for a woman age thirty and over to win a slam. Now the game is just so tough and competitive. It is just very hard for a woman at age thirty to win a grand slam because the body starts to break down.
Serena's had an incredible career, BUT the truth is she is not the woman she once was. I think Serena and the public are expecting too much. Serena's had a great career and is a multi millionare. She needs to decide whether she wants to compete but I hope she does not make a fool of herself and stay too long.
Justine Henin QUIT because she realized she wasn't going to win any more slams. Serena might be in the same boat.
Australian Open: fourth round loss to Makarova
French Open first round: Serena loses to a French NOBODY.
