Will Serena ever play mixed doubles again and get the 2 grand slams that elude her collection. The French and Australian open mixed doubles.

I'm surprised she hasn't since all she needs is the AO and RG and she'd have won every Slam title possible :eek: And mixed would surely be the easiest, she should rope Roddick or Rafa into playing :lol:

She should team up with James Blake. He needs to win a slam before he retires.

I want her to so badly :(

She only needs those last two and then she will have won ALL the Grand Slams titles there are. She needs to team up with Blake again and get them.

after winning mixed doubles titles with the Williams sisters back in the 1990s, Max Mirnyi said that they are both stupid, but that Serena is the more stupid of the two. So I guess she won't be playing any more doubles with Max..

Doesn't really matter who she plays with as long as she gets them. :lol:

I always thought it wierd that Venus won the first two and serena the second two... seeing as how they excel the other way is singles.... I dont think Blake and Serena would be a good pairing... Maybe the Bryan brothers? Hasnt Venus played with 1 of them before?

It would completely solidify her status as a GOAT (as if she already needs it) Winning all 12 slams is the greatest achievement in tennis.

I cant see that right now with that nagging knee, not being helped by a lil excess weight.

Max played with Serena, not Venus, Venus won hers with Gimelstob.
I would like both sisters to win the mixed career grand slam next year.

i don't think so. mixed aint that important and on the real it's just a special event at the slams so we can see more tennis and they can make more paper. lol

well they alerady stated that they will be playing more doubles with each other next year so it would be impossible for them to play three events....not happening

Roddick or Nadal? you could not have choosen two of the worst doubles players in the top ten (singles) right now. Roddick has no volley and Nadal´s game won´t be enough mainly because of his serve and also he is not that great at the net either.

Nadal/Moya beat Federer/Wawrinka earlier this year, as well as made the final of Barcelona and Chennai this year beating Knowles/Nestor on the way to the Barcelona final. Nadal may not have a big serve, but the rest of his game does the work for him. Don't you talk about my man :fiery: :lol:

Max is a very sweet guy, but he does weird things, too

Does that matter? With his serve, he's managed to win a handful of doubles titles already in his career. It never ceases to amaze me how often a pair of singles specialist players can blow away a doubles pair, particularly in mixed doubles.

And besides, Roddick's volley is getting a lot better.

Roddick's net game is vastly underrated. It's all a part of the "Roddick sucks" way of thinking- yes, against Federer (who Roddick has played more than any other player in the last four years) he looks like a junior, but against the rest of the top ten, he's quite competent. Same with volleys- he's not great, but he's above average.

Except when Roddick had 3 match points against Federer last year ;)

Well the tennis channel snippet of Max saying "Let's Go Fishing!" has a totally different meaning now. :tape:
If he's wearing that I would go fishing anytime with him.

Unlike Venus I don't think Serena has the urge to accomplish the box set.
It's a shame though because I think mixed doubles would help her game.
I think Fabrice would be a great partner for Serena.

Serena and Bob Bryan or Serena and Blake for sure. It is so funny when Serena played the mixed because the poor other girl served like 90 MPH and Serena would keep up with the two guys. On return of serve she was just as unforgiving on the guys serve, if she could get her racquet on it. I love Serena Mixed and I'd like to see her flirt with Blake. She already said he was hot and intelligent~

So I guess she won't be playing any more doubles with Max..When did Mirnyi say they are stupid?He seemed to get along with Serena,anyway in the skim of things where is Max now.He will be remembered as that big guy who rushes to the net on every point.A big guy who only wins with a partner never by himself.
