I think some folks are just jealous of Serena!  I'm all for her getting back to #1 (the honest way since NOTHING has every been proven otherwise)!  Congrats to Serena.  It goes to show that you still can be in your 30's and do great things in tennis.  There are a lot of "older" tennis players doing good.  It's not like it use to be where the WTA was ruled by little teenage girls, and I'm glad!  I just have to laugh at us for calling Serena old when my 'youngest' child is as old as Serena!  :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2:

Amen Dallas!  Injuries are the only way she can be de-railed.  She is head and shoulders above the rest of the tour.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

You need to start early. Her father decided she was going to be a tennis star before she was born.

I still thinks she's on 'roids. I'm curious to see why anyone would disagree :dunno:

Why are you curious?, you haven't provided any evidence that she has used 'roid's'.
It's just ex post facto reasoning to suggest that a muscular physique and aggression are the consequence of steroid use. Anabolic steroids ape hormones naturally occuring in humans to varying degrees.  The logical upshot of your position posits some standardized model of humanity in which excessive traits like muscularity simply cannot be accounted for by genetics alone.
The default position -unless their is evidence to the contrary,  is that all athletes are considered to be playing by the rules.

And though I'm empty I still warn the sailors on their way
