Re: Is Serena Past Her Peak and Will Never Win a Slam Again?
Someone (can't recall who) said recently on one of the many threads on this topic (can't remember which) that the days when Serena can just turn up at a slam and play herself into form are over. I think this pretty much sums it up. If she can have a good run in lead-up events (like she did in the USO series last year) she can still be very nearly unbeatable. If she continues to go AWOL for long periods, she is no longer quite good enough to be a strong contender when the slams come around (although even then she can't be completely ruled out). In short, she needs to start planning her schedule better than she has been doing up till now.
