hey, no dissing Iroda! <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">
if Serena comes back rusty, she can still win (Roland Garros) so it's a meaningless term.<br />Serena DOES have #1 potential. But so did Sabatini and Novotna; four years ago, people would have said Kournikova as well. That's why people are sceptical.<br />I'm not sceptical. Next year she should get into the top 4 at least, then she's ready to roll. <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />
I am not dissing Iroda, infact I really like her style. The gal is spunky and a fighter, but she is not in the same class as Serena.
About Serena, I think she could be #1 heck maybe next year. I mean she has no slams to defend. And with a serve like hers it is gonna be hard to break her. She is gonna rise in ranks for sure.
p.s. Anna isn't/hasn't won anything. Serena is a dominate force in tennis. She is a player nobody wants to play. The comparison is silly. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
I know no-one would say that about Anna now, but back in 1997 when she got to the Wimbledon semis, everyone was speaking about her and Venus as the future of tennis. Just to point out that a player may have the talent, but may never fulfil it (Sabatini and Novotna both got a Slam, but never #1).
Oh I know you're not dissing Iroda really <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" /> and I know she's not in Serena's league... yet.<br />Serena can probably become #1 next year if she plays more. But I'll be rooting for Venus all the way! (Unless Iva makes a Capriati-esque comeback, of course <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" /> )<br />good to talk to ya again, dawn!
I really enjoyed watching that young lady serve that tennis ball. Yes those 116's were exciting but those slow sharp angle ones really got me out of my seat. Serena is as talented as anyone who has ever played, it is all up to her. Lindsay had better bring her "A" game tomorrow because Serena is kinda..............sorta.........undeniably....you know............AWESOME!
