Seriously, what is Serena doing in Marbella!

The girl can hardly move, I will be surprised if she wins any more than 4 games. This is so unlike her to play when she is carrying an injury in a tourny that is not so big.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Seriously, what is Serena doing in Marbella!

The only things I can think of are appearance bonuses and the idea that she would have "given up" the number one ranking by not attempting a run here. As we all know, Serena has a lot of pride, and I think it would be hard for her to move to number two knowing that she had a chance to hold onto the top spot. Whether or not playing in Marbella is smart for her health is another question.

Re: Seriously, what is Serena doing in Marbella!

It's quite bad. She's not moving at all, and if Zakopalova had just a bit more confidence on her serve it would be 6-0 right now.

I think players are not allowed to do walkovers anymore without getting suspended or something like that, I am not very sure. That might be the reason why Serena is where she is now and doing what is she doing. Tough I think they can retire in middle of match.

Re: Seriously, what is Serena doing in Marbella!

Klara is playing really good, and Serena is crap, just crap, I know clay isn't her best surface but this is just pathetic. It's understandeable that she wants the top ranking, but she is risking her body!

I can't understand how there's livestream for Marbella first round and I couldn't see Miami SF.

Re: Seriously, what is Serena doing in Marbella!

she is struggling just to hold serve! Perhaps she will warm up and move better but it does look to be on the cards tonight.

Trying to play matches, win all of them, win the title, maintain #1 ranking.
