Philli's comminication I posted on Stanford thread:


"I just read in Eurosport that Serena is going to use a 'protected ranking injury clause' to get into the US Open. By that, they say she will use her rank as Number 1 to get in. That's bullshit. Her last ranking before plummeting to 172 was 25, so, if anything, that should be used and not the number 1 ranking. I cant believe that a GS could sink to such low levels to get a player into the field. This game is losing more and more of its reputability every day." 


That moved me to sit down and watch Martina Hingis whack Serena in World Team Tennis yesterday, July 20th. (TTC encore broadcast.) Serena had her right ankle taped after mixed doubles (where Leander Paes carried her. In the singles set was flatfooted for the most part, a mess of UEs (mostly net balls); she can still get her serve on (where lets are in play, lol) and tried for the "big turnaround". (No ankle trouble when she hurdled the net at one point... ) but her crappy backhand kept on putting it in the net.


Oh, she "won" women's doubles later with Rennae Stubbs carrying her, but this performance was nothing to inspire confidence--much less fear

Agree, and the point may be more profound than the poster thought.


Serena is near the end now--the only debate is how soon is "near". The sisters' madate from the Yank sports commissariat is fulfilled. Just, they did not expect the rest of American tennis to go in the toliet while it played out...  but not even they expect Serena to sustain the whole thing alone. ESPN2 is already memorializing her. 


When Masha takes down Serena again--certainly if at a major--she will then fall to other top players in quick succession. That won't go on long because her preposterous, overblown domestic image (unstable as the woman personally) cannot sustain a string of highly visible losses.


She will quit while the mouthpieces can still claim she's the best that ever was or ever will be, and that the women's game is "irrelevant" without her (read "the Yanks can't hack it anymore").


That, of course, is the moment when players, backers, and tournaments of the new tennis powers should be prepared to make their move.

If you want to be better you have to recognize that your opponent is better than you and you have to work to reach her level.


This Video shows us that Serena is still very strong.

I am a little discourage about the fact that Serena won Masha several times the last years. Masha should play a better tennis. 


Serena plays a very strong and precise tennis. She is also physically strong like a man. Anyway Masha won her in the past.
