View Full Version : Predictions for Serena at RG : 3 scenarios

I have no idea...

1/ Deciding at the last minute, Serena withdraws from the FO, citing an injured leg.
2/ Still leg injured but feeling much better Serena decides to give it a try. She wins a few rounds but at one point retires during a match, still because of her bad leg.
3/Almost 100% Serena transcends herself once again in a GS tournament and goes on to win her 2nd RG title.

Unfortunately I think #2 will happen more or less. Unless she surprises us once gain.

I have become a diehard Serena fan over the years. Even I am throwing in the towel on her. She has a zero chance of making it past round 1(please prove me wrong Serena..I need a miracle).IMHO, Serena needs to rest up for wimbledon. F- the clay already.

for some reason I can't put my finger on, but for the first time probably ever, I'm not even remotely stressed about it and I fully expect a Williams to win. Goes against most logic at this point, but it's the feeling I get...fingers crossed. I'd be thrilled for Serena to take RG#2 after some very poor results at unquestionably her least favourite GS. Serena tends to do well when she's looking hopeless.

it's a slam she will not retire in a match,if she didn't retire in a miami final no way is she retiring in a slam. A day's rest between matches will help any injuries. She may survive three rds but after that if she is not fully recovered, she may not win it.

I have to say I don't see any of those three scenarios occuring. Serena will play. She won't retire in the middle of a Grand Slam match and she won't win RG 2009.

I say she wins her 1st match, Serena never loses in the 1st round of a Slam and loses somewhere between the 2nd and 4th rounds. Very possible she will hint during interviews that she wasn't 100% fit but she will still complete her matches. Serena isn't one to give up mid-match.

of course she'll win it, what kinda tennis fans and Serena fans are you guys? The FO is still a few days away, plenty of time for her to fully recover and then again win when she is the underdog. You know Williams rise to the ocassion when u least expext them to!

Feel the same way.

Take your scneario number 1 because if she feels like she is not completely healed, she will w/d.

I'd say none of these. She'll lose after 2 or 3 rounds but not because of retirement. She'll finish the match.

Like other posters have said, Serena ALWAYS finishes her matches at Grand Slam.
I'd say she either loses in 3R or QF or wins the title.

if her and her sister feel like winning it, one will and it should be serena as it's on clay.

she won't play. she's going to be serious about Wimbledon and with a 3rd rounder last year, she won't lose too many points. 100% guarantee you she will NOT play.

I can see her winning some matches.

But in no way do I see her getting past the 4th round.

There are pics of her training at RG with Richard on the RG website. Think she wants it.

That's how I feel. She's got a bum leg and I don't think it has healed. :shrug:

One retirement in a slam in 11 years. Well, that proves Serena has a tendency to retire in GS's for sure. :rolleyes:

If Serena makes it to the quarters she'll win the tournament.
