Re: Serena's 2013 Clay Court Strategy

Am I the only one noticing the hilarity of Martha fans acknowledging the shame involved in being a Poova stan by using those 'receipts' to try and publicly humiliate anyone known to have been a fan What kind of fail self-read?


I'm sure LBV is ashamed of the fact that he ever supported that thing(as anyone should be) and has repented for his sins in the 4+ years since then.

I'm of the opinion that simply practicing on the slow red stuff (Mouratoglou Tennis Academy) will be enough for a player like Serena.
History has already proven this to be the case. And she has already vastly improved, as her latter season results have already shown.

Personally, I'm not a bit worried about actual tournaments she will, or needs, to play leading up to the FO. As long as she takes adequate time to train her body to adjust to the slow clay conditions, footwork, and taking her time to patiently constructing points, she will be a force.
The only thing I see her possibly having a problem with is the 'patience' part.

ignoring the usual thing

i think she needs that one big win on clay to get over her head issues (which is all i think it really is)...she was almost there against sveta, jj and stosur and i don't think she would have come that close to beating 3 "better" clay court players if she couldn't play on the dirt...

i still believe that one incident has scarred her mentally on clay, and especially at RG where she seems to fight herself way more than usual when she gets tight...much like how uso 08 win calmed her down after going slamless from AO 07, it's gonna take getting over that mental hurdle on clay if she's to win RG again

personally however, i'm not bothered if she doesn't win another RG...i look forward to clay simply because the slower surface forces more consistency into her game, especially if she has had an "average" start to the year, and she plays better in the 2nd half of the year...so even after her absence loss at RG this year i wasn't bothered about wimbledon or OG so if she doesn't win RG next year, let's just say I'll only worry if she goes out 1st rd at wimbledon or uso

When you've become accustomed to waiting 4+ years between slam wins, a 4 year old receipt is as good as gold.

After all those years its really hard to believe that the problem is just mental, Serena is strong enough mentally and you guys keep praising her about that time and time again.
The problem is more about her tennis on the surface and the lack of confidence on it, like its been said she hasn't won a title on red clay since 2002 or sth, that's a long period of drought.

Re: Serena's 2013 Clay Court Strategy

Just to make it clear, I have not taken screencaps of the quotes so you can relax. Though, the most outrageous one was quoted in its original thread that it was made in so it is still there, Mr. LBV.. Anyways, all the backtracking is making me weep and reevaluate my opinion of you.

Are you ashamed as well, Chrissie? I mean, you are still a self-loathing devotee of the Satan's child. You have gone underground recently but still you are closely supervising every single thread in Siberia Stomfort. Don't worry I will not post reps + PMs confirming that. I don't go after toddlers.

You're still talking? When was Maria's last title on a non-clay surface?! Yet you still pencil her favorite at Oz open, u.s. open, even wimby..

It ain't like Serena's getting blown out on the surface..lots of matches lost from winning positions.
in '09 she managed to lost twice after having mp's.. She just can relax and seal the deal.

I'm not one who's worried about Serena ever winning another FO title either, as I don't really like the tournament nor the surface. It's so darn boring to me. Plus the FO fans leave a lot to be desired, and over the years they have just gotten progressively worse.

It's difficult to ascertain what Serena needs to do to win the FO title, tbh.
I wonder if she herself even knows.
Fortunately, with Patrick in her corner, we should see improvements on the red stuff this year.
And if she can get past the 1st round I'd bet we will get to witness a revitalized and motivated player ready to go deep and prove her mettle like she always does.

2011 IIRC and please do not make this tread about Maria.
I was just stating sth which IMO is very true.

There's nothing true about it.. Who's this guy?! :
Serena's been more competitive in her losses on red-clay than Maria's been in her losses on non-clay surfaces, yet you guys still carry hope. Let us be hopeful for Serena too, no?! She did it once, maybe she can get the old magic one more time.
