Good luck Serena :hearts:

I made this collage in honor of her 7 wins at Wimbledon. I hope some of you will appreciate it.



So, what is everyone's favorite run?

2002- Her first Wimbledon title. She was at her physical peak and won the title without dropping a set. She beat Venus in the final and with this win, she became #1 in the world for the first time.

2003- Defended her title by beating Dementieva-Capriati-Henin-Venus consecutively.

2009- Won the title after six years, which I believe is the longest gap between two wins at Wimbledon ever. This run was memorable for how she clocked Azarenka in the QF and played perhaps the most iconic match of her career against Dementieva in the SF.

2010- This is an often underrated run, but one of my favorites nonetheless. She served over 90 aces in 7 matches and beat Sharapova, Li and Kvitova. She didn't lose a set and this was a very drama free run with an incredible performance in the final and one of my favorite match points ever. In addition to that, she looked so fit here.

2012- This is not only my favorite Wimbledon run, but quite possibly favorite Grand Slam run ever :hearts: She was stuck at 13 for two full years and a lot of bad things happened including life-threatening medical issues, a full year away from the tour, the lost US Open final to Stosur and the first round exit to Razzano in Paris after her best clay court season up til that point. It really seemed like it was over for her and at 31, everyone wrote her off thinking she would retire very soon. She managed to prove everyone wrong (again) and put together a spectacular run in which she beat the defending champion Kvitova, Azarenka and Radwanska (I can also add the two classics against Zheng and Shvedova). This run was also memorable for the fact that she served 105 aces during the tournament, a feat that nobody in women's tennis has been able to come close to before or since :worship: This was truly a special one and it marked the beginning of her third period of domination.

2015- With this win, she completed the second Serena Slam and won her fourth Grand Slam in a row. She was in her prime here- in terms of mental toughness, in terms of her achievements, she had more ranking points than the #2 and #3 combined, she had just won four in a row and incredible hype was building up to the US Open. She also had a very strong run here- Venus, Azarenka, Sharapova and Muguruza.

2016- This one was perhaps the least memorable in terms of opponents and matches, but the most important in the long run. With this win, she finally equaled Steffi Graf's record of 22 Grand Slam titles, avenged her Australian Open finals loss to Kerber in an incredibly high quality final and was just unstoppable the whole two weeks. She looked beautiful in her dress as well and won the doubles title with Venus. At that moment, it felt like she was at the top of the world again, but sadly, things started going a bit downhill since. I don't think many people predicted she would only win one more title in the next three years. Still, a great run. That final game still has me salivating :drool:

P.S. I'm still salty that she didn't win in 2013 :eek: What a perfect opportunity that was to have a 3 Slam season. She was up 3-0 and 4-1 against Lisicki in R4 in the third set and had a million break points. If she had won that, she would have played against Kanepi-Radwanska-Bartoli and she surely would have won.

Serena served 89 Aces in 2010 and 102 Aces in 2012.

I desperately want her to get to 24 and to right the wrong of 2018 but who knows what will happen hope the knee is ok glad she isn't playing Doubles but it would have helped with the extra match play.

2012 was definitely the most special I think. No one saw coming what happened shortly thereafter at the Olympics. The way she tore through the field was unlike anything I've ever seen in my years as a tennis fan.

8 titles on Grass the most of any active player (7 Wimbledon titles, 1 Olympic title)

Serena's record at Wimbledon is just fantastic

Singles - Champion: 2002, 203, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2015 & 2016
Doubles - Champion: 2000, 2002, 2008, 2009, 2012 & 2016
Mixed Doubles - Champion: 1998

That's what some sources say, however:

R1- 6 aces
R2- 10 aces
R3- 23 aces
R4- 12 aces
QF- 13 aces
SF- 24 aces
F- 17 aces

That's 105 aces :worship:

Also, what a shitty start to the grass court season already :spit:

Federer won his 10th title at Halle where he has beaten a grand total of 1 top 10 player in the past 20 years. This win also guarantees that he will be the 2nd seed at Wimbledon despite being 3rd in the overall rankings, meaning that he will avoid facing Djokovic before the finals meaning that if Djokovic should lose before the final, #21 is pretty much a done deal. That's how boring and predictable the ATP is.

Feliciano Lopez, who is accused of match fixing, won Queens.

Sofia Kenin, the annoying girl Serena lost to in Paris, won Mallorca.

Ashleigh Barty won Birmingham without dropping a set and has just become world #1 :tape:

No matches on grass before Wimbledon.
The French Open loss to Kenin was her last match.

Serena, you know the best :shrug:

I expect her to reach QF/SF and then lose to someone like Barty or Kerber.
Who are solid enough and expose old and rusty Serena's bad and slow movement.

She has been eating grass for months in preparation for this tournament. Now is the time for this 23andRee era to come to an end.

All negativity can exit stage left.

and of course trolls come immediately :rolleyes:

she's definitely slimming down bit by bit. she wore heels to patrick's gala which is always a good sign for the knee. here's to hoping the serve is firing and she can pull a 2010 here :lol:

Watched some of the 2012 run and it was so magical. Cant believe that was 7 entire years ago, feels like it was just yesterday. 2012 was such a great 2nd half of the year. I need Serena's serve to come back to like 75% of that. It was a thing of beauty.

One match at a time. I know I always get accused of being too negative :help: but more often than not I don't worry without reason. As the 10th seed she will face either Kerber, Kvitova, Halep or Svitolina in R4 (unless they alter her seeding again) so we have to be realistic and take it one match at a time. Health and a bit of luck will be crucial here.

We should believe in Serena :)

She is VERY talented and the best tennis player ever (together with Steffi Graf).
Kerber is the only I really worry about. Serena always flops against her and Angie peaks :eek:

Yeah, I also watched some matches from the past and noticed how slow Serena moves now :tape:
Also sadly her serve is not as strong/not the huge weapon as it used to be.

I was just thinking that another 2012-esque run would be amazing; it's hands-down my favorite Wimbledon run. Coming off a not so great year, fighting off nerves and treeing opponents in the first week, then hitting another gear for the final rounds. Great dress and flawless serving to boot.

!!!! I thought the exact same.

I'm optimistic. The serve looked quite good to me during the clay season (probably the most positive takeaway from those matches) and her ROS/FH were both A++ at the beginning of the year. If she gets those things clicking at the same time, she can beat anyone on grass, even with poor movement.

That 2010 title though. :spit: Her ground game was such a mess at Wimbledon from 2007-14 (bar a few matches that I can probably count on 1 hand)... and she still won 3 titles during that span. :rolls::rolls: No one else's fav could ever!
