Re: Pliskova has played 2392 games of tennis in the past year. 300 more than anyone e

Um, that's probably more than than 7 matches. If you assume 30 games per match, that's still only 210. More like 10-15.

Re: WWW YEC SF: (3) M Sharapova vs (4) P Kvitová

Despite Wimby 2011, Petra does not play Masha well in big matches. She has a mental block against her. You would think Petra could handle Maria as easily as Rena but she does not move well enough...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 88

Serena looked tight as a drum being interviewed. I maintain she would be more relaxed playing Vika or Petra. She is such a favorite now I believe the pressure is greater. Also Roberta is playing...

Re: ESPN First Take Discusses Serena v. Maria

I agree. Plus their net worth is very similar. Maria can't by anything Serena can't. But I do see how this bothers people because at it's core it is very disturbing.

Re: US Open Semi-finals Rescheduled, due to rain

Serena does not like playing at 11 am. Helps Robby.

Re: U.S. Open QF: (1) Serena def. (23) Venus 6-2 1-6 6-3

I think Petra would give Serena a singular focus, thus less nerves. Sort of like Madison. The other ladies run down a lot of shots. That might put Serena on edge more.

Yeah, the Sloane Ranger sat home and watched real champions play tennis.

Re: Is the cygs a bigger deal than the non-cygs?

I think Petra would be easier. With Petra Serena would have a sole focus. The other girls will run down more balls. That can cause much more anxiety than just reacting to fast paced shots...

Re: USO R3 (1) S. Williams d (WC) Mattek-Sands 36 75 60

I think he means it is bigoted and not racist. It that is not semantics. They are two different concepts. But to the point , both are bad and have no place here.

Re: How would Henin's career have turned out without injury

Life can't be lived in hypothetical. That would be like saying what if Serena had retired in 05. She had more majors, more titles, and an even better head to head with Juju. So could we then...

Re: USO 3R: (23) Venus d. (12) Bencic 6-3 6-4

As some have said. Just a bad match up. Cornet and Bencic give Serena trouble but not Vee. Vee's forehand is much more lethal than Serena's. The problem is she makes a shitload of errors many...

Re: WWW USO R3: [1] Serena Williams vs Bethanie Mattek-Sands

Serena's win yesterday is troubling. Despite 2009 and 2011, this is clearly her strongest major. Even those were a SF and a F. Last year she won without losing more than 3 games in a set. She has...

Re: Serena: "Do you swim?"

Re: WWW USO R3: (15) Aga Radwanska vs (19) Maddy Keys

Madison should crush her into wine but Aga is so damn tricky. Head says Madison but heart and head says toss up. I like them both.

Re: Serena's perfect response to endorsement gap.

This won't get answered. The 2009 USO incident is a very convenient excuse for the Serena hate, when these same people know they never liked her anyway. To ignore this is at best, either willfully...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 84

Dead at some of you not seeing the obvious tank. This is tantamount to Sara beating Rena.

Re: Who's Serena's Top Threat This Summer?

Outside of nerves, the empirical evidence suggests no one. Serena has made the finals in NYC in 5 of her last 6 tries, with 4 titles. She has only lost 2 sets in the last 3, both to Vika in the...
