Also this is what event number #5? On not even a year back? Yeah I hate the scoreline but I will be realistic. Her IW, RG and Wimbledon form was good so soon and I never expected her to go so far so fast. The Miami loss isn't horrible to me. It was her second event and Osaka is a good player and was in good form. This loss is odd coming off of Wimbledon but with outside issues and I suspect some lack of motivation it doesn't surprise me.


She has shown she can dial in when needed (Wimbledon).



I'm only going to worry if I see this form at the USO and beyond. Otherwise I just want her to get match tough with Montreal and Cincy and focus on the actual goal after that. I think the majors are the only motivation she has left. No real use chasing #1 IMO and there are no real rivals to get motivated for anymore.

I hope Serena (and the rest of the her family) are doing ok, since that piece of scum was released, and re-arrested.

I think the news yesterday definitely affected her. She said she had a lot on her mind, and that picture of Olympia with the aunty nurse shot confirms it, in my mind. Hope she can pull through this with the family <img src="https://www.tennisforum.com/images/smilies/sad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Sad" class="inlineimg" />
Hubby’s sister in law is a nurse. Nothing to see with Yetunde.

Do we have Medicare Mackie for the whole hardcourt swing?

My guy friend told me that she looked "weird" in the presser too, and to not bother watching it. He also feels that there was definitely something on her mind more than just the match last night. Rhe held serve--her 1st and only successful service game once--then she & her whole game went completely off the rails after that. Ree visually made some faces, but in between points there was NOTHING, just her sitting on the bench. She didn't try to change anything. Yeah, her movement got exposed and will continue to be until she has a firm grip on her health/and more match play under her belt. The rust is leaving, but it'll take a bit more time with that because her body is STILL in recovery, although as far as I know she appears to be nearing the back end of recovery, barring any other injury etc. Yes, as one gets older, these types of matches DO appear, and we know that Ree's an older player.

But I can say that last night's match was the most bizarre match that I've ever seen Ree play in her 20 plus year career.

The most bizarre was her double in wimbledon 2014. She couldn’t hit the ball, couldn’t serve, like someone who took 20 lessons of tennis in his life.
And we know it was not a «*virus*» like she said. I never saw that, it was unreal.
A big mystery. I would like to know what happened, it was so shocking.

I watched her press conference yesterday, she didn’t seem sad, depressed or angry.
She even smiled.
Weird.

Maybe she didn’t want to play this tournament and had 0 motivation.

All your posts here...you have nothing nice and lovely to say about queen?
I don’t have to be nice, sorry.
I just told my worse memory of her on a court.
I see hysteric fans here and there, I’m
not part of them. I’m rude but honest.
I like Serena, BUT she’s not a saint.
I don’t need to pray her GOAT everyday.
I defend her when I talk to people who don’t like her, and I tend to talk differently when I talk to her fans.
