What is happening to Serena?

Right now she is a shadow of her former self. I thought she was getting her game back together at Wimbledon, but her game crumbled after the quarterfinals and she hasn't gotten it back ever since. As a fan of hers, it's just sad to see her, well, suck. She has made more than ten errors in four games? Her footwork and court coverage is terrible. What's wrong with her?

dissapointing.....keeps focusing too much on the outfits to be nice, to be this and that...and the tennis?! Keeps getting worse.

Always bet on black!

Exclamation

Serena is doing what Venus did last night; making too many unforced errors, but she semms to have settled down, but could do a little better.

Um, it doesn't matter. Watching her right now, she is taking the pace off the ball. And she is still making errors. How amateurish is that?

Ok, she's tied it up 4-4. The way she's playing is still terrible, though. Way too timid.

Nobody is scared of the Williams sisters anymore. Simple as that.

No one should ever have been "scared" in the first place. Still doesnt mean that they wont get their asses whooped because theyre no longer scared!

Now Serena, hold........

No one should have been scared in the first place. It is the other players fault that they get intimidated by the sisters.

Ok, she's playing a little bit better now.

Trine: When I said amateurish, I was referring to when she was paddling the ball at 10MPH and still making errors.

I guess it shows that stepping away from tennis for more than 2 months does a lot to the player. Both Serena and Venus are still struggling to get back to same playing field.

I think by this time next year, we will all be praising them (at least Serena).

I am still not sure about Venus.

GOOD LUCK

Venus
Serena
