Honestly, I just think she should retire. She's not getting any younger. While it's true that girls often tend to peak against Serena, the thing is that these are girls still in their twenties or early thirties whereas Serena is closer to 40, had a child, and had physical issues. Her mental strength and fitness isn't what it used to be.Okay it was hard, but I’m ready for this to be the turning point for Ree now. Assuming that she’s completely honest about her knee, Mackie better work his magic and make her get into prime shape this summer. As much the last 3 finals hurt, deep down I know that the draw opened up for her in all 3 slams and she still has not looked movement-wise anywhere near her best. I hope it’s not too much to ask at her age and health status, but I’m ready for her to get super fit and turn this into US Open 2014 2.0, then start going for the golden slam in 2020. LMAO!!! Okay okay, I know, but I can’t help but think about it! I LOVEEEEEEE when Rena proves people wrong time and time again. I’m sure all of us were incredibly emotional after the loss yesterday, just getting furious thinking about the cackling haters, but when I stop to really contemplate, she can only go up from here. I just hope that her team has finally figured out the issue with her knee so that she can properly train. I want that 2012 summer Rena back YAAAASSSSSS. Come on, girl! We’re supporting you every step of the way!!!
In any case, even though she lost in all three finals, it was still an extremely good result. There's nothing to be ashamed. Why not retire when you're still at your relative best? Better this than finish like Venus. Besides, Serena has so much going on, at this point, I don't think she has anything to prove on the court. But perhaps, she likes the game that much? Or perhaps, she's afraid what life would be like after retirement?
