Question How's this for a new goal for Serena?

Ok being undefeated is over (congrats Justine!) so how about this for a new goal for Serena...

She reaches the final of every tournament she enters?

I know my fav can do that! What do you guys think?

Hey Leena! No I hope she wins the rest of the finals she's in but she already lost one final so her goal can't be going in undefeated in finals so that's why I said her goal should be reaching the final for every event she plays.

Aren't goals set for the future?

I think she should have a goal of quitting tennis and becoming an actress.

What if she has to play Vee in the semis of a GS?

There's gonna be a 50/50 chance of that happening since Kim will be #2 in the rankings for a while.

Serena's my fav so I'll be totally rooting for Serena to beat Venus or any other player Serena has to play in the semi's of any tournament.

This will most likely only apply to the USOPEN...

Vee will be #2 for the French and even if she isnt for Wimby, she will be seeded #2

But if Vee plays Serena in any semi...she better whip her ass...I'm sick of Rena beating up on my girl...

If Rena makes every final...it will be a great thing...even if she doenst win them all...

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

i think her number 1 goal should be that she stays healthy and happy during 2003. who cares about winning when ur not healthy and injured and not happy.

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova
