Last year at this time, I wrote that Serena Williams was not in great condition. That’s being kind. Ultimately, she proved she was well-conditioned enough, winning the Australian Open after entering the tournament ranked No. 81 in the world.
This year, I had no such ill words. Serena’s flamin’. She was fit and tight, muscles rippling and her conditioning peaked.
Then she flammed out. Today (tomorrow?) she lost in the quarterfinals to No. 3-seeded Jelana Jankovic. She committed 36 unforced errors and lost 6-3. 6-4
But, man, she looked good doing it – as she did late last year when she posed for the now-defunct Jane mag (see below, not for the weak.)
Oh well, I gues I can stop my TiVo now.
