i hope serena gets no.24 so we can stop talking about court, who I'm pretty sure seemed to only pop up when serena got close to her numbers ,i've been told she was hardly mentioned before that when steffi was getting up there in her gs count.

then maybe I can root for someone new at USO but a nice throwback for this wimbledon with serena/fed as winners would be nice.

lmao i mean like i like how that person insinuates that she is out of shape and then says she has muscle. Its no doubt that her shape has changed and that she is not in the shape she was back in the day but that is bound to change especially after giving birth and I'd say she is probably in pretty good shape and you can definitely tell this difference from now and a year ago.

Also sometimes im ngl she doesn't wear the most flattering outfits.
It makes no sense to say she's out of shape and then muscly. The two don't go together. I do agree that some of her recent outfits have been awful. I do quite like this one I won't lie.

Nothing compares to my favourite Serena outfit which is the 2002 RG one.

What would her ranking be if she wins it all?

You know Serena was fat to many people then too. Trolling never ends.

Yes she looks all kind of intimidating there. Pure athlete.

this wimbledon outfit is good, I haven't really liked any of the GS wins prior, that USO was just horrendous and not at all flattering. lol her puma outfits definitely were a lot better

It’s always amazed me how well Serena moves with her body type and the amount of muscle she has. Phenomenal athlete. But that’s why she’s the GOAT

People who constantly comment on her weight act like Serena didn't give birth to a baby. It's hard for women to get back to that level and weight which is why pregnancy is such a big deal. It's sad.
It’s also the age at which she did it.

I got back into shape after my 1st, in my mid-20s, in no time. Fast forward a few years and it’s exponentially harder, sadly.

One could tell Muchova was a resourceful and creative player in the USO (if I'm not mistaken) where she made 3R last year, but nothing prepared me for this Wimbledon.

And she's still quite young.

She didn’t have that type of muscle in the beginning. It seems like she started to do more weightlifting in the latter part of her career. She’s still a phenomenal athlete.

I watched some Halep-Zhang highlights. I didn't even now who Zhang was until this Wimbledon and she's 30 years old and has had a solid career. I used to know my tennis, but since I don't watch as much or follow it as closely, I'm continually "discovering" people who have been around years.

How come Serena Williams can easily play 2 full weeks of a major but her body can't last 1 or 2 rounds of a 1 week tour event?

I follow basically every tournament and I never knew who she was either. Some players just fly under the radar and have somewhat solid careers.

Well that’s smart. Just focus on the slams. I would be ok if she’s in the top 5 at least.
I think she should play one warmup before each slam, but idk, perhaps that would be too much on her body? She did carry a knee injury for much of the year.

Lack of warmup is hurting her tho, she looks woeful at the beginning of each slam.

Cracked on every BP tho. Think Riske went 5/5?

But - all the more credit for not losing it in the face of that.
I knew that low ball was gonna be an issue for her. I wish Serena would hit out more. But she knows how she is feeling more than I do. And thats why she is better than her sister. More consistent serve and more conservative ground strokes. I just like it when she hammers the ball.

I weirdly feel like being a bit more conservative on ground strokes helped today. She was spraying a lot and might have sprayed even more had she tried to crush that ball.

Her ROS was pretty woeful tho, not just today but previously too. Worst component of her game right now, I think.
