    She's experienced a title drought this year, but her recent Italian Open win, certainly has given doubt to some of her doubters.

    Could she win it a fourth time? I think so. She really seems to be gaining the momentum she needs to defend her title. This would be a quadruple Career Grand Slam, having won each of the other three Grand Slam tournaments 6 times. I think it's a strong possibility she will be able to pull it off, she is going from one clay court to another, so I don't think the field is in question here.

    She does have strong competition, however. You have Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber, Agnieszka Radwanska, as well as Victoria Azarenka and Simona Halep. Serena lost out on the Australian Open title to Kerber, who I think may be one of her most challenging opponents. Perhaps Serena's all time famous confidence and grit will see her redeem that loss.

    She did have a 9 year hiatus from winning at Roland. (2003-2012) But for whatever reason, she has been almost unbeatable at the French Open the last few years. I fully expect that she'll repeat.

    Kinda sucks to say that though, knowing full well that even if she is the best woman tennis player ever by far, which she is, tennis' competition is tough enough that she might well still lose.

    True, be that as it may, it would be cool to see a new champion rise out of this tournament. I'm not saying that Serena needs to step aside or anything. Everyone likes a cool story. It would be exciting for new blood to win the title.

    Nah. No new blood necessary. I just want to see Serena win everything. Seriously. It's that fair weather sport's idea, that I sometimes buy into. I want the greats to be great, unless there's an awesome underdog story developing. I like history in the making I guess too much.

    I can definitely jive with that. She does deserve it. She is one hell of a competitor.

    There is also a chance her sister could actually face her in the semi finals. Venus is No.9 seed right now.

    Going to be Serena and Muguruza in the finals. A few sites are trying to make it sound like Serena might struggle in this final match-up. But whatever. I really, really don't see it. I think they are just trying to get viewership up or something. I don't think that's necessary though. If she wins, this will be her 22nd grand slam win. That's reason enough to tune in.
