Chances are you have contracted Serenaitis if ...

...Upon viewing scheduled draw and after seeing Serena Williams's name in your 'opponent' column,
you experience the following symptoms:

* Cold sweats before the beginning of the match (even in freezing temperatures)
* Acute anxiety, followed by fear, worry, uneasiness, and dread,
* Arrhythmia,
* Sudden Onslaught of Schizophrenia,
* Deciding on a walk-over even after defeating your previous opponent by a comfortable margin (i.e: 6-1, 6-0),
* Delusions of 'hope' that you will defeat a far superior player,
* Sudden loss of motor control after coin toss,
* An abrupt and unrelenting desire to take a piss, even after running dry; or incontinence during change-overs after being broken for the 3rd time in the first set alone.

If you have experienced one or more of the following, you should quit your profession and have a baby, or blame loses on bad fitting shoes or a shoulder injury.

^That picture of Serena clasping her hands in your signature juxtaposed with that.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

You really have a problem I'm not a weirdo like you, I don't like Serena for stuff she did and some traits she has, I have no problem saying she's had a good career or she has a great serve

You really are something

I justified this by saying that if we anticipate a bit to the fact that Victoria will strike her true peak in some time and will be defeating Serena soon consistently [just like Djokovic did in 2011 against Nadal] then the word 'owned' doesn't truly apply there because we know Victoria will level off the H2h [just like Djokovic did against Nadal when he stroke his peak].

We don't know to which extent Victoria's peak is and it could be greater than what we've ever seen before so if it happens, she'll necessarily level off the H2h which invalidates the fact that she's owned.

For that, I gave you the example of Djokovic, pre-peak he was 13-5 or something to Nadal, in-peak 8-0, the H2h was like 15-13 or something, don't have the true numbers. So using Djokovic's experience as an example, saying that Victoria is owned turns out being more false than true knowing that she still has her true peak to strike.
so how would she match-up against the Serena she played at the Olympics? Just curious.

Re: DA-BOMB: Brisbane SF: Williams d. Azarenka wo

Why risk an injury right before the Australian Open? No player should ever play if they feel it will jeopardize themselves

You really are something
a good career, huh?! 15 majors only gets you a 'good' career nowadays?!
Then I guess 4 majors would be called a 'non'-career?!

Ah Domi, DOmi...

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?
The truth:
Serena Williams: Greatest African-American tennisplayer in history
