I think it is hilarious and crazy that its a discussion about her winning a MM. IMO If i were here I could care less if I know on my resume my last 6 tournies have been 5 slams and a YEC title. #imjustsayin

Re: Will Serena Williams win a US Open leadup title this year?

to be honest if these girls want to beat her and win any slams themselves they better get there asses into the gym and work out even more and get even bigger and stronger because right now it aint cutting it! everyone is getting crused by Serena and it looks BAD for the rest of the tour...

its pretty pathetic to see nobody challenging her consistently...

well lets face it, serena is just BETTER than her competetion...shes also bigger and bolder...i was never even a fan...and over the last 2-3 years shes gotten even more ruthless...it is crazy to see someone like her not even have to try she just DOES it.

All her rivals work years to make it and all she has to do is enter and boom...she has a 50/50 shot at winning it.

Re: Will Serena Williams win a US Open leadup title this year?

at the end of the day serena only cares about the slams...and of course shes gonna save her best days for those.

I dont ever relate her performances or effort level at smaller events with the far great appeal that the Grand Slam events hold for her/

shes smart and while she may deem it nessesary to win a few smaller events im sure she wont lose any sleep losing a match in montreal if she has too.

it wouldnt affect her at all.

The funny part is that for players like Serena and Maria, they probably end up making more money for playing the small events than the Premier events since the big events put most of the money up for prize money while the small events keep their purses small while putting up the real $$$ for appearance fees to one or two stars.
Top players don't have to play any Internationals if they don't want to. They can ONLY play a MAXIMUM of one Intl per every half-year.

The rules for top players are: must play all Premier Mandatories; 4 of the Premier 5s; atleast one other Premier every half-year.

No, Serena the slam winning Williams does not care about these tournaments. i just have one hope that she makes the quarters in cicny because i will be there. if not i will see her when i go to the U.S. Open. Either way as long as she has 14 singles slams by mid September then it was a successful summer.

Child boo!!! Serena doesn't care about anything but the majors. Haven't we learned this by now? I say no.

Re: Will Serena Williams win a US Open leadup title this year?

When was the last time she won a US Open series event??????

2001???? Really I don´t even remember the last time she won a title in the US outside the open, really...

Obviously she might win Istanbul, because the shit loads of money she will be getting from appearence fee, and then she won´t win another event until the US Open

Judging by who's entered in Istanbul, it looks like anything less than the title there would be an embarrassing loss.
Sounds to me like Istanbul is one of those tour mandatory events. She'll show up, maybe win it..but who cares..as long as she wins the USOpen.

I'm sorry, she's playing ISTANBUL?

She's not on player's list on their web site, but the tournament's in her schedule. Whatever.
