You are bringing matches Serena has lost within one year of her comeback? Shall we bring up all the matches that Maria has lost I am the two years after her comeback?

Next they will be saying she has more intensity than peak Seles, better forehand than peak graf, better backhand than peak Venus and is a better volleyed than Navratilova

As my sis Frenchie would've said - a creampie mess

Not putting Maria down..I just don't think she's mentally tougher than Serena.
Devilishattitude is making Serena look like she's some Vera Zvonareva or something.

I wonder how many other tennis fans believe this?

And btw, when did Maria defeat Serena on clay?
My memory is foggy on this.
I'm pretty sure that's not what I said.
Just because of the matchup issue I believe that Serena would give Maria a lot of trouble on clay, but I also think that Serena's strengths would be not as effective as they are on the other surfaces (serve,ROS, power off the ground).

Anyway, this is just a matchup vs Serena. Maria basically has to worry only about 2 or 3 players on the red clay while Serena need to avoid almost every player in the top 20 w/o mentioning the likes of Razzano who can create an upset over her.

You sure can talk for being fan of a player with barely 4 majors. I give you that...

Besides when your fav has lost to Oudin, you sure ain't gonna talk about Serena losing to razzanno.

all players had bad days or matches played injured or after 0 match practice etc. It's true for all players including Serena , Sharapova etc

And Lisicki is a top player on grass , don't include her in this list

he asked me a question, it's not my fault if you can't handle the truth.

Maria may have lost Oudin but it was back in 2009.
At this very moment, noone of this calibre will upset her IMO she lost against good players those last years and even this year.
Serena's loss to Razzano will always remain the most WTF loss of the century, I know it's hard to deal with but you can still confort with the rest of her season who really was awesome.

It was back in '09, huh?!
And 3 years from now, the Razzano loss is gonna be history too then, soo...

And besides: 'noone of this calibre will upset her.' and you think that wouldn't hold true for Serena?!

At the FO, I don't really know that last loss really shoked me but she bounced pretty damn well.
Now we'll see if she can do the same at the French.

She ain't losing 1r again. Don't know about winning. That's trickier and she's to put in the work first.

Re: Strengths and weaknesses of Top 10

Lisicki...top player....anywhere is

Just because you have a big serve does not mean you're a top player or a top player on grass. Hradecka, Petrova, Stosur, etc. Sharapova is just slow as dirt and Lisicki likes trying to tap that ass for some reason.

So in other words, Serena has a shot at the title?
Good enough for me.

However, I'm not so sure that her game would now allow her to lose so easily to these "20" you mentioned, since she will be practicing with Patrick on fine tuning her clay court techniques.
Do you honestly believe that Serena will enter FO unprepared with such great resources at her disposal? I understand that you aren't a Serena fan, but surely you would not slight her to this degree.
