Last summer Serena was playing decent tennis. Not great, but decent tennis. Please explain why she didn't keep practicing and playing during the fall? Why didn't she play the European swing? Had she done that, she would be one of the top contender for the AO. Had she played last fall she would be match tough, be playing great tennis, and be in better shape. So why didn't she do that? It seems to me like she is leaving her preparation until the last minute and being overconfident with her ability.

Good question.
Scratching my head to come up with a good answer and but I don't have one.
Maybe she lost interest in tennis in general but still likes the feeling of being
at the majors.
The atmosphere, and the attention she garners are proably things she still enjoys.

No one can answer that except Serena. Serena and her camp are the only ones aware of what Serena can and can't do and what she wants to do and what she doesn't want to do. She had a trial to prepare for in December as well, which I'm sure took not only her time but also her mental energies to prepare for. Also all of what you are saying is speculation. How do you know Serena would have had a great indoor season? She could have been injured again. Anything can happen in life so wondering about the what ifs is pointless. The reality is that Serena is back now and doing what she can to get her game on track.

She was injured. I believe her knee was
bothering her and she didn't play.

Can't get enough of her. :cool:

Anyways, in further response to this thread,
did people not read the phrase when she
arrived and after her 1st win in Hobart?

"Serena Williams ends four-month injury layoff"

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Why? Because she's supposedly lazy, she's fat and uncommitted.


That's the answer, in a nut shell, that all the haters will give. They'll probably forget that some money grabbing old, wrinkly scrag tried to sue the Williams Sisters. You'd think that Serena would have thrived on all the negativity at the end of last season? [sarcastic comment] :rolleyes:

It all boils down to family for Serena. The trial was a family matter and therefore her main priority. End of.
