WWW Serena Williams v Mansoor Bahrami

Could Serena beat the moustachioed majician or would 56 year old Bahrami have too many tricks up his sleeve?

Of course Serena. With french ranking, Serena is around -30/-15 level. Mansour is 4/6 15. So a big gap between them.

Serena is going to seriously kick that guy's ass, but good on him for having the courage to face her. There is no fucking way that I would agree to play against her.

Re: WWW Serena Williams v Mansoor Bahrami

Is this gonna be a real match or sort of like... exhibitionesque, with them doing ridicolous stuff on the court all the time?


Edit: Ohhh so this is actually Who Would Win? Fuck I thought it was gonna be for real

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: WWW Serena Williams v Mansoor Bahrami

I would love to see this match actually happen! I'll try to answer it seriously, although if they ever played, I'm sure it would be an exhibition with Bahrami doing his usual shtick. Slow motion points with no balls, and all that good stuff.

But assuming it's just one match, and they were both trying to win, I think it could turn out like Riggs/Court. Bahrami can do ridiculous things with a tennis ball. I don't think Serena would know how to handle the crazy spin and angles he can produce, because you never see anything like that in the WTA. To be honest, you rarely see anybody like Bahrami in the ATP tour either. Serena's serve would still be very effective, but he'd be used to the power she can produce off her groundstrokes. He still plays with the seniors, and those guys have not stopped trying to serve better, hit harder with new racquets, even if their legs have gone. I think he has the perfect game to run Serena all over the court, while protecting himself from doing too much running. I think it could be a case of a guy who has honed a really unique game all his life, against somebody who has no idea how to play against it.
