Serena will be at the USO, NH was just a ploy by Anne Worcester I think. She NEVER plays the week before a slam and risks the injury, we learnt this after Sydney 2002. She hasn't played the week before a slam since then, nor will she ever again.

I still think she'll do great at the USO, as I believe she will be fully fit by then, she looks in great shape so must have been working out. I think she will have a rusty first couple of rounds, but by the round of 32 she will be rouning into form nicely ready for Venus, Justine or whoever the hell she meets in the quarters :D

Go Serena! :woohoo:

I still think she is the most likely to win the USO. Blind devotion :hearts:

Serena's possible road to a 3rd US Open title...

1st rd...Kerber

2nd rd...Camerin

3rd rd...Likhotseva/Zvonerava (with these two here she should defend her 4th rd points from last year)

4th rd...Bartoli/Safarova (could put up a fight but if Bartoli can't handle Venus she can't handle Serena either...Safarova might be tricky but is too unstable)

QF...Golovin/Safina/JH/Sugiyama (call me crazy but i think either Sugiyama or Golovin could pull off a huge upset because of the way the play...sugi takes the ball very early and if on can do some real damage....tati strikes the ball huge and if she can keep her head on can cause an upset so i'm not so sure it's a lock in for JH)

SF...Venus (nuff said)

Final...Masha (need i say more)

Hope you're right Rach ;)

.........

Serena draws Justine, once again. If her body is OK, she wins. I mean she must win, no, she must annihilate her, I'm still mad at her in RG, she should have won this tournament. But if she wants to beat Hénin, she must refind her agressivity.

I'm confident. A semi against her sister would be great!

Aug 23rd, 2007, 12:31 PM
i think Serena's thumb is fine...i think she didn't play before to make sure nothing happened to it.....while she may not have been 100% it's possible it could just be 80 or 90...even 95% and she just wanted to be sure of it being 100% for the Open....nothing more important than a GS plus i think Serena is hungry for a GS after her two QF losses especially Wimby where she would have won that if not for the stupid thumb....i do hope she can tear through this draw though...cause this end has the potential to make whoever gets through to the final very tired

Well Im not displeased with Serena's draw, although I would have liked an all Williams final.

To be honest, if her thumb is good enough to play again, then she should beat Justine. But if it's not then does it really matter if they meet in r16, QF, SF....

Still it would've been nice if Serena got an easy draw for a change so that she got an easy route to the semis...like some:rolleyes:

Anyway, alot of Serena's UEs are very close, she's only just missing, if only half of them went in she would have killed Vera and she wouldn't have been pushed back so far either.

For the life of me, I am at a loss as to why she's so lackadaisical and drowsy when she plays JH. :shrug:

JH is a hell of a player but Serena has shown she has the game to blow her off the court.


That's it, I'm done... At least she won a slam this year and is consitently reaching the quarters again.

The warmup tournament is one thing, but Serena body language and seemingly negative attitude in the second set is another. She knows Justine is probably her toughest opponent, but what I saw was worse than the FO - I didn't see the fight and that's disappointing. Now I have to put my support behind Venus and I hope she makes it all the way, but it's not as strong support unfortunately.

~Eclipsed~
Sep 5th, 2007, 02:17 AM
She looks so confused when she plays Justine. Justine as we all know is a great defensive as well as offensive player. Serena seems like she tries to get cute too much by coming up to net too much or other tricks to try to throw Justine off. When nothing works, she looks like she just tries to hit her way off the court which doesn't work either.

She needs to work on a game plan for Justine.

I don't think Serena fears Justine, it's something but not fear. Serena has faced legends, I doubt Justine across the net is out of this world. But in the second set especially it's almost like she didn't will herself up to fight or find it important to keep at it. It's hard to describe really and that just leads to the frustration. At the end of the day when we look at her year thus far, AO/Miami, one of the most telling things Serena has to decide is that it has to be worth it on a consistent level/basis. She can do it.

Disappointing loss. Justine thoroughly beat Serena today but only because Serena let her. Serena: "STOP HITTING WITH SO MUCH TOP SPIN" It's crazy how since the Miami SF she's been babying the ball. In the 2nd set SF against Shahar she was slamming almost every ball. With spin but still hitting very hard. Same in the QF, and 4th RD against Sharapova. But since that final her groundstrokes just haven't been the same. Not penetrating at all and many of her balls fall on the service line its ridiculous. At Wimbledon she was rallying with players like Milagros Sequera who has zero fire power off the ground. It was ridiculous. Same for her earlier matches here. Rallyign with MEC and watching that match MEC was matching Serena off the ground and actually being more aggressive at times. It was weird to see Serena not overpowering opponents like MEC. Players she used to crush. Serena strokes aren't there. Her serve is but the her ground game and return game are awol. Once Serena find that and the power game that she usually has she will def. be beating Henin and most everyone else on tour regularly.

WHO WHERE DID THAT COME FROM!? Please tell me ur kidding.....

BTW Serenas got another damn problem with her f-ing equpiment, SHES USING GUT! What the hell??? You dont use natural gut these days, thats like when borg used his wooden racket in his comeback in 1990, serena theres a reason justine hits with so much topspin so easily with power and keeps the ball deep and tearing through the court SHE USES THE PROPER STRINGS. Im not sure exactly what justine uses but its the clay courters favourite, Gut is horrible, it was good in the days of the wooden rackets and back in the 90s when string technology was either poly fibre or faux gut and gut, it was one of the best, but it was more suited to power serve volleyers like pete and boris its gave a flatter ball and a well struck ball would have little spin but good pace, if u wanted spin ud need it strung at 75 pounds like Pete (or phillipoussis).

There is only one person in the world today who can play well with those strings and thats Sampras cos he serve volleyed so much and had a huge natural serve. Serena is a baseliner, shes got a big serve but its very very hard to consistently hit great swinging volleys to the line with natural gut (This is the biggest development in the game in the last 10 years, it affects the game more than the rackets do), everyone hits close to the line with pace and huge spin (clay courters dominate the mens tour too because of this), because of the use of either a pro hurricane (babolat), and luxilon cross, or a pro hurrican + Natural gut cross (just to get the stiffness of the gut), or the hybrid strings (players usually use the hybrid with a luxilone or pro hurricane cross depending on what their game needs in particular but these strings compared to just natural gut are like Wood compared to Graphite carbon).


Guys im telling u this is one of the biggest reasons that her strokes are looking kinda shoddy, (although i still stand by my previous posts about her foot work and her training). Its alright to hit a 1 2 punch with these strings but u are verry very likely to break down if u have to constantly come up with shots time and time again and these strings make u do all the work while ur opponent is hitting back with interest with no effort

I don't think Serena fears Justine either, however with Justine's improvements their games match up perfectly. Justine is a more powerful version of Martina Hingis in a sense, the problem is that Serena's level here never reached championship level. Justine is always consistent with her game whereas Serena at times can be hit and miss. For the first four rounds she played sub-par tennis and looked uncomfortable. So when she lost the qtrs I expected this result.

In her interview before the open she said that when she finally decided to really dedicate herself to tennis the injury came. So I'm sure she reverted back to some of her old ways and enjoyed time in the limelight as usual. My theory is that Serena needs to be defeated by a prominent player enough times to get her act together.

It took her a while to get that memo when dealing with Maria and Jennifer, now she'll steady herself and study Justine. I actually felt if her level was up in this match she would've had a good chance to win because Justine lost composure at the end of the first set and was ready to fold. However, Serena just had a meltdown on court so hopefully whatever's bothering her can be solved with time off.

Nice pick up about Serena's string/racquet. Even when Serena was hitting out on her shots , they still weren't landing deep. Her groundstrokes remind me of Roddick's--they land at the service box no matter how hard she hit them. Look at Andy's groundstrokes when he was winning in 2003 to now. Yeah some of its confidence, but alot of has to do with equipment/technique change.

Poor tactics
Also, Justine picks apart Serena's serve now. Its not that Justine is reading Serena serve per se but she is goading Serena into serving a particular way. She pretty much stood back a couple of feet and favored the doubles alley side, yet Serena gladly stuck to serving flat out wide deep in the box. And when Serena couldn't get free points on the flat serve out wide she resorted to upping her mph's trying to blow em by Justine which is a no-no. Serena posses a slice serve out-wide which lands short in the box creating an angle similar to a lefty, why wasn't it employed lastnight. Hell why wasn't a slice serve up the middle employed...its what Justine did all match:tape:

And lets not talk about Serena's half assed effort to charge the net either.:help: Serena literally walked to net on some plays:lol:

I know Serena has nagging injuries (mainly up top) but Serena should consider playing full doubles only schedule. This way she can preserve her ailing hamstring/groin and backhand while still working on her variety/placement on serve, shot selection, and most importantly her timing.

And is strung at 65 pounds right now (i cant recall exactlly but it was 65-68 and i dont know of any other guy with that kinda tension cos only serve volleyers can go higher and still win), hes also got somewhere between 50-100 grams extra lead tape on his racket on the top I believe, to make it head heavier and thats so he can effortlessley generate power on overheads and well obviously, the serve. Problem is hes been playing a defensive clay courters game for the past 4 years (cos of that idiot goldfine a joke of a coach), even with Jimmy's help he still stays back far too often, federer is strung at 57 (and thats his highest, sometimes goes to 58 on a hot day in fast conditions) so for him he just needs to whip the ball with top spin and the pace is already there plus his frame gives a hell of alotta control and spin with pace (of course he does have very good hand eye co-ordination i have to give him that). Federer and roddick play a battle from the baseline and roddick is the one who has to work harder to hit his strokes cos his racket is meant for a big serving net rusher and a 1 2 punch kinda player. Same thing with Serena and Henin, wat odd similarities between the 2 players and their 2 main rivals.

The problem is that henin is better than either of them and is a whole different player. Marias weakness is that she like a giraffe, big with a big serve and she can only run in 1 direction for the ball, get her out wide and she has problems turning around and trotting back in the other direction, horrible ability to move. Jennifer... well I guess Serena could blast her of the court cos serenas serve was bigger and better, jen loved returning but wasnt so great on serve. Henin is hingis, but with jennifers groundies and ability to stay in close to the baseline, as well as a better slice than hingis i think, also returns better than anyone i can think of right now, like not attacking the serve (except the second serve) but she gets alot back into play the big ones in particular like hingis, and will occassionally go for it and be more aggressive on return, her court coverage and foot speed is better than any of those 3 people too, and she works very hard cos she has no life and cant do nething else except throw darts at pics of serena on the wall.

Hingis and capriati combined, her fastest serve was 170, her second serve is almost as tough as serenas.... her weakness, is serena williams at full flight a la 02, 03, and serena 02 was better than serena 03 and woulda won the FO 03. Serenas biggest weapon on all surfaces will be her movement, not her endurance so come on serena. Get that working and then the angles and down the line shots will come when ur in better position.

Henin is hingis, but with jennifers groundies and ability to stay in close to the baseline, as well as a better slice than hingis i think, also returns better than anyone i can think of right now, like not attacking the serve (except the second serve) but she gets alot back into play the big ones in particular like hingis, and will occassionally go for it and be more aggressive on return, her court coverage and foot speed is better than any of those 3 people too, and she works very hard cos she has no life and cant do nething else except throw darts at pics of serena on the wall.

Hingis and capriati combined, her fastest serve was 170, her second serve is almost as tough as serenas.... her weakness, is serena williams at full flight a la 02, 03, and serena 02 was better than serena 03 and woulda won the FO 03. Serenas biggest weapon on all surfaces will be her movement, not her endurance so come on serena. Get that working and then the angles and down the line shots will come when ur in better position.

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: Your acting like she beat the 02 Serena Williams out there:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

There is no reason Serena cant improve her game and work just as hard. With improvements she can be back on the same ground as Henin in no time.

With those type of BS comments, you might as well just tell Serena to retire:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

You should go hang out with those trolls in the GM.

Wat are u talkin about u moron i clearly said that Serenas movement a la 02 03, was her biggest weapon, and serena of 02 03 had all the power the speed plus the angles to boot.
