she could have lost at Wimbledon in 2012 vs Zheng anf Shvedova and the field is not going to be weaker..... The likes of Madison Keys/Stephens will be becoming tougher and tougher

and when you are 31, you are not going to be younger......

She might win 1 Slam in 2013 , 1 in 2014 and that's all

I think Rena will prefer play against someone who she destroys in Olympic final than Zheng or Shvedova

to get there she will have to play vs young players , who can match her speed .... that will be tougher for her than Semis and Finals where she is not losing

I don't see Serena winning AO and FO again , she might win Wimbledon and USO , but not back to back as in 2012

serena was never broken in the zheng match. she serves well, she wins at wimbledon. it comes down to staying healthy really and she wasn't this time. she knows she can beat all these girls. if healthy, she wins, period.

you should be more concerned about the possibility of maria winning more majors. if maria doesn't defend her french open title, the odds are against her winning another one anytime soon. serena even at 31 has the potential to win all majors. maria doesn't.
