Did Serena start Winning Just in time to Get a Better Clothing Contract??

I wonder if the money motivated her?

I don't think the money motivated her, but the losing did.

This will definitely help her win a TREMENDOUS deal with someone, hopefully Puma.

I want that Cameroon outfit to come back.

No doubt the money motivated her. She wants a contract to rival big Sis's. Plus I read she is about to sign with Nike.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

So what?! What´s the point?! If she can begin winning all of sudden just to land a contract more power to her! This does tell you that when she wants to win nobody can beat her!!

I don't think Serena was motivated by money. It's not like she was improverished. She knew she should have won more slams since '99 and she had to prove to herself and everyone else that she could. A new contract with bigger bucks is just gravy.

Merely coincidence, but great timing.

of course. with Serena it's not about the tennis, it's about the fame, money, glamour, etc. she's kinda fake and it's pissing me off
