*Why didnt she bring the same mental toughness that she brought to her most recent Aussie Open finals? What did she choke up 4-2 in the second?

Serena was in no shape, physically or mentally, to play that tournament. Period.

What happen was, she wasn't in shape and got beat. :shrug: it's that simple.

Many said she simply shouldn't have shown up, but Serena loves Wimby.

Serena had a bad ankle from Amelia Island that year and decided at the last minute to play Wimbledon . Her father told her to stay home but she went and messed up her ankle further.

Well she did fight hard to make it to the 3rd Round then she lost. She shouldnt have played at all

The same thing that happened to Maria at AO 2007. They underestimated their opponents when they shouldn't have and ended up getting blown away by players who were "on" that day.

P.S. I assume you are talking about Wim 2004 final

Are you talking about when she lost to Craybas? If so she was just out of match play and not in good shape. Serena's game is extremely high risk so she can only get away with so much if she wants to win matches. If she won she may have played herself into the tournament like Venus did. Although they would have met in R4 so that's another issue. The motivation to win may not have been so high knowing her sister was waiting in the next round.

Were you not a tennis fan or still too young then?

In that case, Serena just got smoked, just like Sharapova got smoked January 27 in Melbourne. Happens to the best of 'em. ;)

Did you see her at Wimbledon 2005? Did you see her ankle? They aren't excuses. She was injured...Her ankle and knee. But whatever...You probably think she was in 100% shape. :lol:

*Serena lost the Wimbledon final 04 because she kept hitting the ball out, dumping the ball in the net and not taking advantage of her opportunities.

*Serena lost in the 3rd round of Wimbledon 05 because she kept hitting the ball out, dumping the ball in the net and not taking advantage of her opportunities.

In 99.9% of matches, Serena determines who wins the match, not the other player (with the exception against Justine on clay)

If they choose not to, the reasonable assumption is that they actually meant the year they wrote.

And yes, it is typical of Serena's fans to respond to what people actually write, especially when those same people have every opportunity to change what was written.
