Serena Williams is done, and probably her sister Venus is done as well. At least Venus seems to stay in shape, but Serena is fat and slow. She has
to rely all on power because she has nothing else. Because she is out of shape, she can't recover from injury as quickly as before. It's all that
side stuff she does: modeling, acting, designing. Well, it used to be the side stuff, now that's her life. She and Venus had better be careful,
though. If they don't perform at even a mediocre level, the sponsors will drop them. That's what happened to Anna Kournikova.
I really think that the Williams sisters just got overconfident. Bank in the first half of the decade, they were dominating women's tennis. But soon
some powerful players who were in shape started to emerge: Justine Henin-Hardenne, Kim Clijsters, and Maria Sharapova, to name a few. Suddenly, there
was competition, and the Williams sisters simply refused to put in the necessary work. They chose lives of glamor, for now. Unfortunately, it looks
like those lives will fizzle out. Without the "day job", the money won't be there to support their hobbies.
