Re: Tennis Discussion Thread - (Olympics)
Don't think she lost her serve all week did she? You're pretty much unbeatable with that level of serving. Hate exaggerations but this week was as good as it gets in the Womens Game from one Player. Sharapova was playing pretty well and got executed. BEAST. She'll win the Doubles Gold too just because. BEAST.
Haven't heard any of the commentators bring this up but thoughts on how she'd fare against the Men on this current form? I'd honestly expect her to beat them all outside the top 10 and seriously challenge guys like Almagro. Shame she didn't enter the Mixed Doubles for USA but I'm pretty sure that would have caused a scheduling mindfuck. She wouldn't have had a problem playing and winning all 3 though. Shame that the Womens Game is so weak right now that there's nobody that can even come close to challenging her when she's on form. The fact that Azarenka and Radwanska are #1 and #2 before the Olympics kinda says anything. Not trying to take anything away from them 2 but neither are great Tennis Players and Serena beat both of them convincingly. I know Radwanska took a set off her but that was totally against the run of play and Serena dominated the match bar a slight blip period at the end of the 2nd set.
