* Starting with Toronto last year, Serena has failed to make the finals of a tournament twice. She retired in the Sydney semis, and she lsot to Patty Schnyder at Charleston.

* She's only lost seven matches in the past twelve months, so only 1 'bad loss' isn't as impressive as it seems.

* It's all good. Except those QF exits at Roland Garros and Wimbledon

You can make a case that Serena Williams is the most consistently good player on the tour.

Very impressive stuff, Rena.


Had you not been injured at the start of the year, who knows how much more impressive your record would be!

Good luck at RG 2002!!!!!

She could very easily end the year as No1
