I hope I will not upset any Venusfans here but I believe Serena did extremely well going out in the quarters . She keeps her gunpowder dry for the slams (let us face it she still has a shot at the Grand Slam) and knew very well it was difficult to beat Sharapova and Clijsters in a row at this stage. After all she had won the tournament three times already.

Excellent strategy and the kind of approach I wish to see from Clijsters' coach in Poland or Berlin as well, if she finally wants to take home that well-deserved slam.

If you want to keep "gunpowder dry" and intentionally lose, then why enter the tournament in the first place? ;)


Oh, appearance fees. OKAY.

Kim could be running two marathons a day, pumping iron, and doing full contact cage fighting and it wouldn't matter: this is her year to win a major.

:lol: Well you haven't "upset" me with your crazy post, just coz its cr*p and makes no sense whatsoever in relation to Serena. We all know that Serena is,more than arguably, the biggest fighter out there on the tour.She would NEVER give up on a match. Now I don't like this post too coz its giving way to those boring, match-fixing stories to surface again. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I think it's because Serena is an actress and she wanted to give a convincing show. Or something as equally retarded as that. :retard:

This gives new meaning to the claim that Serena beats herself. ;)

Yeah that must be it, we all know Serena isnt capable of losing unless she tanks ;)

Of course, that begs the question why Serena would ever lose any match. So that the WTA doesn't put her in a separate tour of her own or on the ATP? Yeah, probably that. :p

Yes, we will call it the "GLOBAL ICON TOUR."

The tennis court will be on a stadium stage and will be lit with strobe lights and have steam and loud music. On either side of the stage there will be CATWALKS with models wearing Aneres fashions parading during the match.

Serena will play against scantily clad male models and at the close perform a scene from Strindberg to showcase her acting talents. Ok.... Maybe Spike Lee instead of Strindberg. ;)

She would never throw a match, she's to much of a competitor. Even against her sister. But She may not put as much effort into winning at al costs, and it may turn out that the other player wants it more and is able to outplay her. This isn't throwing a match, it's just the way things go, and if it works out, good for her.

So...Serena fakes us all out by faking to try on court and she fakes to be upset when she loses all because she's waiting to play "for real" at the Majors....Hmmmmmm.

That makes about as much sense as people praying for the pope to get to Heaven. He's the frickin' POPE! :rolleyes: :tape:

Not If she has to play a Williams. She has beaten all the top players she has faced this year except a Williams. She is 1-7 against Serena and 2-6 against Venus. She couldn't close a 5-1 third set lead against Serena at AO and lost to a Venus who could hardly walk at Wimby. At least 2 of those wins was also against an injured Williams.

I don't think the newly rejuvenated Kimmie is going to lose so easily - at least I hope not.

To actually think Serena would intentially lose a match in a tier 1 tournament so she can "keep her powder dry" for a Slam is totally :retard:.

Serena would never intentionally Lose to anyone. Serena hates to lose. If she is not injured she will fight to the end. But no one knows Serena's game better than Venus, They play each other all the time. Serena has said that in practice V beats her all the time. The only reason Serena beat Venus in all of those Slam finals is that Never say die attitude. Venus couldn't think thay way about her Sister.Before the match in an interview Venus said that she always wants the Best for her Sister. But I think Venus is gettin tired of Losing to Lil Sis. In that second Set when Serena Started her famous Comeback Game Venus would have none of it. She closed it out.

While I can't agree with your initial post, what I can say is that Serena (like JCap,) is a lot harder to beat in a slam than she is at any other tournament. Serena kicks it up another notch at the majors- I wouldn't be surprised to see her best results come in the slams this year.... but that's as far as I could take it. Serena plays to win- ALWAYZ...

Venus had brilliant tactics in their 7 previous meetings too. She was keeping her gunpowder dry for the next millenium :rolleyes: :haha:

Bepa's strategy was even more brilliant. There was no point actually playing in the tournament because it was unecessary work. Wonder what she's keeping her gunpowder dry for :scratch:

I agree with you. I think it is never easy for two very close sisters to try to beat the other in a competitive match but Serena has had less of a problem with it than Venus - until now anyway.

Serena has to much pride to go into a tournament and lose intentionally!

lol @ people and their conspiracy theories.

The pros far outweight the cons in this instance.

The pros= being a four time champion, maximum press coverage of her outfit specifically created for this event, maximum points and prize money, being tested heavily for the French Open, being mentally strong from winning one of the runups to the French Open (well, it's not on clay though)

Cons=preserving her gun powder, not having to play against 2 top players of the moment (nevermind that Sharapova got spanked 6-0, 6-0 recently, and Clijsters is still somewhat in 'comeback mode'... Although of course Clijsters wouldn't have just rolled over...)

Just my thoughts...
