How will Serena prepare for Wimbledon?

Based on her Twitter she is back in Florida, hanging out by the pool and getting her nails done so far. Anyone know when she will head over to England and start practicing on the grass or if she can play on grass in Florida at all?

She'll show up next week to practice. She should enjoy laying out at the pool and relax. She's only done one tournament before Wimbledon which was in 2011.

Re: How will Serena prepare for Wimbledon?

if she hadn't been preparing on clay courts in France this year and hadn't played red clay tournaments , she wouldn't have won FO2013. That's for sure

Despite she is a favorite at Wimbledon, the whole field has more chances against her on grass this year, than on clay.

yes, she withdrew from FO after 1R to get ready better for Wimbledon last year, if I'm not mistaken

Still back to back French Open and Wimbledon is not an easy goal, I feel she will have more trouble in London this year, as it wasn't her primary objective this year.

Um...you are talking about Sharapova in 2012. Wrong year.
