I couldn't help but notice that Serena is already looking in much better shape. She must have trained for like 6 hours a day since her 3r exit at the Aus Open. But I don't see how you can lose that much weight so fast!

It's amazing what they can do with computers these days!

Are you implying that these photos are photoshopped? I don't think they are. I mean, what reason does Getty Images have to do that for?

I guess I just don't believe that the first picture was taken recently. The 2nd one could possibly have been, but she looks really fit and trim in the 1st one and I don't see how it would be possible to make that happen in such a short period of time. Her waist looks almost as small as the shorter girl!

Those photos are taken from the front, so you can't see the bulk of her weight. She still looks about the same to me. It's not safe to lose more than 2-4 pounds per week unless you are under supervision, so I doubt she's lost any weight since the AO.

I never knew Venus was that short.

She's about the size of the bailiff on 'Night Court'. No, not the big black lady, the one they called Bull.

Yeah, and their dad looks a lot younger than I remember.

Full frontal shots do not show her "baggage". I disagree about the weight loss claim - still too much mass to compete.

I don't know about Photoshopping, but honestly, I don't think Serena's hips have ever been quite that slim. Nor could she have dropped that much weight in 2 weeks. She was looking about 165-170 pounds in Australia. That pic looks like 145 pounds.

Images found on GettyImages are authentic -- not altered in any way. Granted she does look thin, and I do believe that she's been training hard enough to drop a few pounds, the only reason she looks lighter is because she has less of her body showing than she did in AO, and the photo is taken from the front.

I think by the time her next tournament arrives in mid February, she'll be in perfect form and shape to be a threat again. She's never going to be a Hantuchova twig, and I personally don't think it was her weight that was holding her down in Australia as much as it was her lack of matches and footwork. Footwork can be improved on without dropping weight.

But it doesn't matter. She's looking good, and that's good to see. :)

Serena wears some of the ugliest clothes I have ever seen.

It's an old photo, taken when she was in better shape.

She needs two more months to be fit. You can't lose a lot of weight quickly and maintain your strength and endurance. I would never recommend losing more than ONE POUND per week for older adults and TWO POUNDS per week max for younger adults. Most of early weight loss is water loss, i.e. dehydration. I can lose 5 pounds running a 20 miler in Orlando in July in the afternoon, but 4.9 pounds of the weight loss will be water, probably. Losing fat takes time.
Anyway, Serena can take what she wants from the other women. She is the best female athlete on the tennis court, when fit.

Yeah, she lost weight in her big freakin' toe, that's about it! She's got a long way to go before she's any where near in tennis shape. Sometimes you can't win on just talent alone. And I think she's starting to realize this. Hopefully. Keep it up with all those acting auditions and clothing designs, and hopefully your tennis will just go away completely. Don't worry tennis won't miss her. Later

Foo4E....:

You can never win anything on talent alone. In tennis, you can have the genetic equivalent of Federer's strokes, but if you can't get to the ball, who ya' gonna' beat? I see this problem in men's club tennis ad nauseam. Guys show up 20-50 lbs overweight and just watch as a 40 mph down the liner gently glides past them. "Oh, nice shot." :)

Stay FIT, stay FIT, STAY FIT. Don't become one of those fat slobs you see on the street. :) When you are 50 you'll be beating 30 year olds if you are fit and they played on center court Wimbledon but put on 30 pounds. Look how great Mac looks at, what, 47? Even Laver is looking pretty good and he's had a rough time recently. And then there's Nasty....:)

Hi.

The folks down in editorial wanted me to tell you that they feel it would be more accurate if you delete the part bolded above, and replace it with "roided out of her skull."
