Arrow Can Serena come trough this year without losing a match?

In Miami, Serena said in an interview, that she would try to come trough this year without losing a match! Is this possible to do for her? I think it's possible, but it's very very difficult! What do u think?

WhatS'uP?

I think its poissible... She has it in her.. But it will be tough.

I think her best chance at that is too not play too many tournaments!

If she plays 0 tournaments, she can lose 0 matches! J/King

I think she should play ten tournies altogether.
she already has three titles, so she should play 7 more, my suggestion:
Family Circle Cup
Rome
French Open
Wimby
Canadian Open
Us Open
WTA Championship

if Navratilova didn't do it, i don't think Serena can. i mean if she would play more than her little measly 12/13 tournaments, she would be more seceptable to a loss, but she plays minimal tennis so this just ups her chances to go undefeated. but she's bound to lose one of them IMO

Who was the last person to not lose a match in a calender year?

With all of the talk of Serena possibly going undefeated this year, which I think would break Martina's Open Era record of losing just one match in 1983, I was wondering who was the last player to do this?

Of course she CAN do it. But will she?! Hmmmm...it'll certainly be tough. But I guess...if ANYONE on the tour right now can do it, it'll be Serena.

No one's ever gone undefeated...Martina holds the best record ever for a season, and if Serena loses even once she won't beat it, simply because she doesn't play alot of torunaments...and I don't why but that fact that she doesn't play alot kinda pisses me off...

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

i think she can do it. but clay is going to be her hardest surface to keep herself from losing. more challengers step up like capriati, clijsters and henin. mauresmo, hantuchova and seles if they play well will also have a chance against her in the clay season and don't forget her sis venus.

that is if she plays like she did last year. she played well last year but i think she was expecting something bad to happen everytime she hit the ball. to me when i saw her last year on clay she looked like she was uncertain with herself. i think if she plays like she did last year but believes in herself more than she'll definately go undefeated (and doing so well last year should have given year the confidence to do so).

but the first clay tournament is very important. i think if she wins the first toournament then she win it all but if she loses then it might different the rest of the year.

I'd like to see her do it so I can witness a record be made into the history books. But I doubt she will be able to go thru the whole year without a loss or two.

Well she has gone 4 straight slams without losing a match, she has beaten everybody on every surface, its really difficult, it requieres to be on the best shape as possible for every match. But who knows, with the level of today´s game no one would have ever predicted a player to win 4 slams in a row, and Serena did.
