The women’s draw spectacularly threw up even more surprises than the men’s draw at Wimbledon this year. It’s time to look forward to the hard court season this summer by asking some burning questions about the North American leg of the WTA Tour:
How will Serena Williams rebound from her shocking defeat at Wimbledon?
After winning the French Open in convincing fashion on her least favourite surface, many were asking if Serena Williams would lose a set, let alone a match on her way to winning Wimbledon. Sabine Lisicki stopped Serena in her tracks in one of the biggest upsets at Wimbledon.
Serena has been through every range of emotion in her tennis career, and if anyone can recover from such a setback it is the world number one. Serena rarely plays in both Master Series events, usually preferring to play only one of either the Canadian or Cincinnati tournaments. Not that Serena has anything left to prove, but she isn’t going to be happy just winning one grand slam in a year of such dominance. Expect Serena to be ruthless, and a fair amount of opponents will be thrashed on the courts this summer.
