WTA...Rating Has Fallen

Made me laugh she has been saying her opponents have been playing incredible tennis & she has had to take herself to new heights to beat them. She was handed a cakewalk draw via being seeded & has only dropped one set.

It’s not weak. It’s just that Jehovah loves Serena and wants to see her placed unequivocally above the false prophet Margaret. Once He has placed her on her rightful throne, He will stop smiting the other players in the early rounds and order will be restored. Hopefully Angie has not repented and this will happen sooner, rather than later.

Also, all the commentators and experts are saying that she's better now than ever before. As per usual.

Well even as a fan that's pure BS.

Serena however doesn't need to be at her best to win Wimbledon. Her game just suits the surface that much better than clay or hardcourt where she would struggle a lot more. These girls barely ever play on Grass unlike Serena who's a proven dominant champion. Wimbledon has pretty much been dominated by a WS for the last 15+ years.

I know a joke right? I think she moved well on about 5 points. The rest of her movement was unbearable. Her serve is on fire per usual and because of that she deserved to win. I wouldn't say the WTA has fallen, maybe it's Wimbledon that's fallen & somewhat irrelevant because of the surface makes it so one-sided toward great servers on both ATP & WTA aka boring and not reflective of the rest of the year in tennis. With only about 2 weeks of tournaments to participate in before Wimbledon, why would anyone's game be well done on that surface? They rarely play on it. So then it's just favors all the great servers. I don't think people want it to change because of the traditions it represents and some people probably enjoy big serving and the way it favors certain players' style. Fair enough. It's just a little crazy to compare what happens there to the rest of the tennis year.
