Not a young girl anymore, time to drop some lbs. to avoid the constant ankle/knee injuries, the body is breaking down.


:eek: I was shocked by this comment. Sure, Serena has a thick body, but it is mainly her bone structure. Other than that, she is one of the most athletic women on the tour. I believe that Serena works really hard off court. One day she made the comment that she ate a snickers bar and didn't go to the gym. If she is worried about that, then I don't think she would allow herself to be unfit :rolleyes:

Just because Serena is injury-prone doesn't mean she is fat!

Many people have that kind of misconception that people with big bones are fat...how unfortunate! It doesn't mean if you're fat means you're not fit.

Actually that's true. The more you weight, the easier you get injured. She doesn't need all those muscles just to play tennis. I think she should drop about 10-15 lbs.

Serena has too much muscle to be that weight.

Jun 5th, 2005, 02:53 PM
I'm one of her biggest fans and defenders...yet I do think she could be fitter. She's naturally not stick-thin, like Vee for example, but she could be a little trimmer and more toned I think. All her injuries may be due to the fact she's not as fit as she was. She aint fat though.

Derek.
Jun 5th, 2005, 02:56 PM
Does she really need all the muscle? :shrug: I mean she can still hit the ball hard without some of that muscle I mean like Sharapova. She has way less more muscles yet still hits as hard. Maybe losing some of the muscle would help her. But who knows. Serena's fitness trainer would tell Serena if she needs to lose weight I would suppose.

Hello, Serena admitted that she had diesel arms at age 11 (her words not mine.) Losing muscle mass isn't so easy for her. She just happens to be a female that builds muscle easily. It's rare in females, but it does happen.

Even when Serena was at her best physically she was still thick. She'll never been thin like Venus, it's not her body type.

Theres no way serena weighs that

I think muscle weighs 3/4/5 times more than fat and she does have a lot of muscle...

Anyway I read somewhere she was 11st which seems more accurate!

She's 160 at the minimum with her muscles and bone structure.

Seriously speaking, I know from your posts that you don't like Serena. Question: Do you post in any other thread than the ones about her?

Take your time. . .. be honest. Ok? Ok.

do people actually think the wta tour makes the players come in for an official weighing every year for their bios.

hewitt's bio says he is 6 foot something which so clearly is not true.

they just rely on people to give accurate information. to say there is a 2 kilo difference between Serena and Myskina is ridiculous as Myskina is neither taller or more well built than Serena. i would say they are both wrong though because i don't believe Myskina ways that much.

VeeReeDavJCap81

Here's a question for you. Do you read any other threads except threads on Serena? Because if you did, you wouldn't need to ask me this question. But I'm going to assume you don't know because you only read threads about Serena........ That was an honest answer. So take your time and try and digest it.........

Second question, then: If you dislike them so much, why are you seemingly always, always, always in threads about her? I don't really get you, the Julia's, or the Martian KFC's of the board.

Can you be honest about that too? Ok? Ok, thanks.

:lol: How am I bitter? Serena never did anything to me to make me bitter, but she sure doesn't weigh 135LBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is there something wrong with that? . And who is "them"???
:rolleyes: I don't get you and other Williams fans like you, why are you always bothering posters that say ANYTHING about Serena that isn't flattery? Even it the comment is neutral or truthful?
You gonna tell me next that Serena is 5ft 2 inches tall and has blue eyes and naturally red hair and get mad at me if I say "NO" to that to? :wavey:

Well for starters, it would only be muscle serena would be losing, so of course it doesn't mean she's fat.

And although I don't pay too much attention to the types of injuries serena has, so tell me if i'm wrong, but the ones involving the lower body do seem to be far more frequent, right?

Well knee and ankle. But Serena's had shoulder injuries as well as wrist injuries. If you really think about it, most tennis players eventually have all of them. Wrists, shoulders, abs, knees, ankles etc;

That damn fat ass Serena. She needs to lose weight and get down to Myskina's or Sharapova's size, then maybe she could be a one slammer too. That dumb girl would rather stay fat and win all those grandslams. What an idiot! Anyway, her boobs alone way 135lbs.

starr
Jun 6th, 2005, 01:22 AM
When I first saw how Serena was built, I predicted knee problems for her. To me, she looks built much the same as Boris Becker who was more heavily boned and muscled than most tennis players when he was young. He had trouble with his knees, and to avoid continued injury, he lost a lot of muscle mass and weight.

Of course, Serena can lose muscle mass by varying her work out and devoting herself to intensive stretching exercises. It would be an effort because, like Becker, she would be going against body type.

This is not to say she is fat by any means. Of course she isn't. Becker was never fat either. Of course it's not to say she weighs 135 lbs either. That's laughable.

I'm just curious because if it came from a sports journalist or writer, it is a very misinformed (some would say 'ignorant') statement. I'm assuming this individual is basing this conclusion on some weight/height chart which are no good when it comes to (god, I hate to go there, because someone's sure to misinterprit this, but...her goes) black physiology. I've had this conversation out with so many doctors concerning my own physiology because I'm very muscular, yet according to this chart based on some anorexic dude in Idaho, I'm obese. :lol:

I'd imagine that Serena's injuries are due more so to her muscular build, not weight. She can generate a lot of power (torque) for a woman. And doing so on such a constant basis tends to wear on the sinews (tendon or ligament). Personally, I think her injuries are due to her start/stop habit of training. It's possible that she doesn't maintain that constant conditioning that her sport requires. But she's definitely not fat and doesn't need to lose weight in the least. There's barely any fat on her frame as it is. :shrug:

Don't bring my name into this.

You hump just about every posted article and have something smart @ss to say about Maria and Justine. However, your obsession holds no boundries when it comes to Venus and Serena Williams.

Oh, and by the way, since when did you become discussion group monitor, telling people what threads they should and shouldn't participate within??

Sounds pretty controlling to me. Of course, I'm not surprised about that from your type.

Let's put to rest this myth about so-called "big boned" people. In my opinion, the phrase is used to excuse someone being overweight.

Regardless of your "frame", big, medium, or small, its no excuse for being overweight. If you look overweight, it doesn't matter what the scale says.

Serena looks like she has put on a few pounds. Is that a surprise??? Not to me. Obesity runs in her family and her genetics dictate that either she stay in great shape, or she'll get larger.

"Thicker bone mass" does not excuse being overweight.

Genetic make-up does.

I don't think everyone is supposed to look like Maria Sharapova. However, for a woman that stands over six-feet tall, she immediately qualifies as having a large frame. And she doesn't look overweight.

Just like I don't think everyone is supposed to look like Serena Williams. However, for a woman that stands 5'6", she immediately qualifies as having a medium frame. And she looks like she's overweight.

Serena wouldn't be the only "Big Babe" to play tennis. Martina Navratilova was a "big babe" when she won at Wimbledon in the '70's.

I agree. And you know how it is with ankles and knees. Once you have injured them, you are more likely to injure them again.
But she's definitely not fat and doesn't need to lose weight in the least. There's barely any fat on her frame as it is. :shrug:

I still think she would benefit for losing some weight.

Can we finally put this subject to rest? There have been a gazillion threads about this subject with the same posts like the above posted ad nauseum.

First, that is a WTA profile compiled when Serena turned pro at the age f 14, ten years ago. If you take a look at her pics back then, I'm sure 135 lbs was not so hard to believe. Second, I doubt the WTA weighs the players on tour every year they are on tour, and I highly doubt any of them dash back to get re-weighed or provide more current information. Think about it, what woman would tell her true weight? :rolleyes:

First off: Serena isn't overweight.

Still, there's no skirting the issue, fellow fans. She hasn't looked as fit and toned as she did in 2002-03. Now, this did not at all prevent her from going 3-sets several times at the AO, and against Maria and Lindsay no less. For me, it's more indicative of a drop in the intensity of her training regimen, be that due to issues with focus or injury or changing body metabolism.

Whatever the reason, hopefully it hasn't gotten worse since AO/Key Biscayne. And I'm praying that it has improved. But as long as she's doing the appropriate injury prevention work and keeping her stamina up, I'm far more concerned with her strokes and court sense, which have been shaky this year.

Rubbish, Serena goes out of her way to cover them up all the time. You can tell by the way she hides it that she obviously hates her big fat muscular body. Maybe losing weight will make Serena feel better about herself. I remember a couple of years ago, she was quoted as saying " The worst place in my house is in front of my mirror." Poor Serena, if only she had just a teeny bit of selfesteem. Boy I tell ya, the day she gets some will be the day she wins her first grandslam.

Well, Serena ain't exactly the skinniest twig in the forest, but most of it is down to her body frame and muscle mass.

If her weight was threatening her career, I am sure she would do something about it. She will prove what an "overweight" person can do at Wimbledon this year :D

Actually, having more muscle would protect joints, not injure them.....

Serena would need to get a boob reduction to lose weight :lol: cause she has virtually no fat anywhere else on her body.

I tend to think Serena gets injured due to her start/stop habit of training. Of course, it is hard to consistenly train when you are injured, so it becomes a viscious cycle.... you rest because you are injured, you heal, and then start training again and injure something else :( Hopefully Serean will get fully healthy....................

As much as I dislike Serena, she is not fat. She's extremely muscle-y and toned. If you look at a picture in one of her outfits that shows off her belly, you can see she's extremely toned. Big asses probably just run in the family ;)

Let's put to rest this myth about so-called "big boned" people. In my opinion, the phrase is used to excuse someone being overweight.

Regardless of your "frame", big, medium, or small, its no excuse for being overweight. If you look overweight, it doesn't matter what the scale says.

Serena looks like she has put on a few pounds. Is that a surprise??? Not to me. Obesity runs in her family and her genetics dictate that either she stay in great shape, or she'll get larger.

Since Serena no longer sees a carreer in tennis, her and sponsor MacDonalds have created a carreer changing plan that will let her eat as many hamburgers as she want and start making a name for herself as an Obesed TopModel! :tape:

Julia has again proven that she's a dumbass. Serena's sisters, Venus and Lyndrea are rather slim while Yetunde (RIP) and Isha weighed more. So, the rationalization that obesity runs in the Williams family, as per usual, makes no sense. But we've come to expect this from Julia's posts.

Thankfully, Serena is able to control her weight, if she so wishes. But unfortunately for Julia, her brand of stupidity is a permanent condition.

Serena is overweight. We can all see that. I can't see how her bigbonedness would cause her to gain so much weight in such a short time.

There is, however, a very simple explanation for Serena gaining weight. It comes down to her character; Serena likes to do things the risky way. Look at her Cameroon outfit at Roland Garros a few years ago or her outfits in general, or some of the statements she has made. Now I am pretty sure Serena got rather bored of the fashion-approach to spice up her life outside of tennis (or her life period, cause there's hardly any tennis balls to be seen, especially since she and Brett are no longer a couple) and thought that sleeping with the enemy would be a good idea.

Who would that enemy be? Well take a look at this picture:

Firstly, if obesity runs in the family, what happened with Venus? The woman has never had an ounce of fat on her.

And if Serena is overweight, I would hate to see how fast she would be skinny, as she outruns most of the tour even with all these 'extra pounds'. Lets face it, she's a better athelete than that Russian girl your obsessed with.

Serena seems to have a very healthy and in shape body.
Although I do wonder, that someone, who doesn't play a FULL schedule and has such a healthy body, can get injured that quick. :shrug:

I sure do not hope she will have a carreer ending injury! :sobbing:

I don't think she gets injured quick. I think she has never fully gotten over her previous injury and it 's just a vicious cycle. Right now she is getting injured because she's not healthy....I mean not 100% and as others have pointed out it's a vicious cycle. If she trains like she should the injury won't be career ending.

Now to be fair, I do seriously believe Serena gained a few pounds. This is nothing serious and nothing extreme either.

It is also the logical consequence of being injured so much. I really don't know if her body weight, which is unarguably more than that of most players, is causing her knee and ankle injuries though. I also believe that with every pound she loses, she also loses some of her strength, which is of course a major weapon.

I just think that it's hard for her to get a in a groove, she gets injured, she has to heal, she has to train again and plays before it's fully healed, thereby reinjuring the same injury. That's the vicious cycle and has nothing to do with any weight gain. That's what's so ignorant about lame nerds running a tennis website (TennisX.com) making comments and arriving at conclusion regarding a player's injuries and having no knowledge of sports medicine.

No really, sometimes you can't know you've come back too soon until you try and get hurt again but when she came back from her first injury after the AO it probably wasn't 100%, she over compensated and ended up twisting her ankle in the process? :shrug:

Ok. Let me say something stupid... When their sis' died... Serena had a lot of time to get healthy. Yes, she was in pain. But she came back in Miami and won the damn tournament. She wasn't 100% fit at that time. Why doesn't she take the rest that she needs, trains a good healthy schedule.... and do the comeback things like, lets say, Justine. I hate bringing her into this. But both Serena, as goes for Kim, seem to always come back not 100% fit. Doesn't Serena realize HOW GOOD she can be if she would actually comeback 100% fit. She'd be unstoppable... :eek:

It's not that ANYONE thinks Serena is fat. Of course, she is not fat and not close to being fat.

What the Tennis-x guy was suggesting is that she drop some weight to help her out with the joint injuries she seems to be plagued with. That's something other players have done. Boris Becker who has the same big boned, heavy muscle body as Serena, had to drop a lot of weight as his career went on to prevent knee injuries.

But, since when did the writers of TennisX become doctors specializing in sports medicine. They don't know her training regimen, nor do they know what caused any injury she has. She had knee surgery. She hasn't had a problem with her knees this year as I can recall. She sprained her ankle in a tournament and reinjured it getting ready for the FO and pulled out. What's the big deal and how did they get that she's plagued with joint injuries from an ankle sprain?? :eek: Venus more than Serena is plagued with joint injuries and according to them she's not the one who has the problem. :rolleyes:

do people actually think the wta tour makes the players come in for an official weighing every year for their bios.

hewitt's bio says he is 6 foot something which so clearly is not true.

they just rely on people to give accurate information. to say there is a 2 kilo difference between Serena and Myskina is ridiculous as Myskina is neither taller or more well built than Serena. i would say they are both wrong though because i don't believe Myskina ways that much.

130 for 5"8 isn't much. I do think nastya weighs 130 lb !!!!

That's almost certain. I'd even bet she's more than that.

The players are always hamstrung by societal "norms"-- so much of their appeal is based on appearance that they're often afraid to list their true weights; even when they look terrific, they don't want anyone thinking they're fat. (Duh.) So the fact that they're more muscular than the average woman is lost on them; they still don't want to be listed at 5' 8"/140.

Peter Bodo once commented that Mary Joe Fernandez (5' 10", 140) was the only player who may have lied about her weight the opposite direction (i.e. added pounds to her bio).

FWIW, Amanda Coetzer was listed at 5' 2"/120.

but if you saying she isnt obese, fat then i dont see why she has to loose weight. there are alot of players smaller than serena who have joint injurys its gonna be one of these topics that we all have to agree to disagree on...

She doesnt need to lose any weight, fat or muscle. Shes been built like that for ever, and there are a lot of other players who are solidly built, like Kim and Mauresmo, and no one ever tells them to lose weight.

oh sure, I can see that you might disagree with his opinion, but, at least, people shouldnt' misconstrue the point of the writer.

Well, Kim might want to consider it. My opinion is that she would benefit from slimming down. Chris Evert wasn't fat either, but she dropped 15lbs midway in her career and thought she benefited from it greatly in terms of speed and stamina.

Mauresmo, imo, is another story. There's a reason for her constant nagging injuries, but I don't think it is her weight. Additionally she isn't as muscled as Serena particularly in the lower body.

I agree. Some girls are naturally more muscular than others (just like guys) but in tennis even 5 lbs can make a difference. I read somewhere that Graf monitored her weight and spent most of her playing days within 5 lbs. I am not suggesting Graf had an eating disorder, just that she was aware that even a few extra pounds affected her performance.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly WHAT JOINT INJURIES Serena is plagued with that she needs to lose weight to combat. She missed the FO because of an ankle sprain. People twist their ankles all of the time, it doesn't seem to me that you have to be suffer from joint injuries to complain of an ankle sprain. :shrug:
