Serena looking sluggish...Is she okay?

Anyone watching this match now? Pls tell me more about how she is, cos before the TV switched courts, I saw her play and got broken at 0-1, she was frowning and moved slowly, almost as if she was not feeling well...

Hope she is fine...

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

Weird. In her first service game, she just wasn't putting power on her serves. It wasn't like those injured serves she has when she's hurt, but just sluggish serves. Then, in the second service game, she put some pace on it, but was spraying the ball.

She looks terrible.

She does indeed look sluggish. Tired, like she had diarrhea the night before. Hope she really starts to pick her game up.

She has looked the same several times already this season. For example, AO final.

I know....in that 1st game it looked like she was just spinning the serve in... Mara is not having to do anything other than hit the ball back once or twice. Serena definitely looks out of sorts.

mara is playing smart imo though by just getting the ball over the net and not going for much and hoping for Serena UE since nothing is working for serena right now

at this point i seriously dont think serena its gonna win wimb! shes not playing good.. something its not right with her.... IF only IF she reaches the 4th round shell be out because venus its gonna take her like she did in nasdaq, plus venus playing horrible sometimes... if she pass daniela she will be in the 1/4 finals, and maybe a good great chance to be in the semis..only if she wants really bad!

In the 5th game, her service looked better, but the groundstrokes looked a bit weird... not like how she would normally hit...

I hope she pick up her game soon...

She's not moving well either.


Carillo just said that her father suggested to her to skip wimbledon but serena wanted to play.

I hope she can play herself into form.
