Jonathan Pearce Column: Serena Williams.
WHY are there doubts that Serena Williams will be able to regain her crown as the queen of tennis?
Eight months away from the sport with a knee injury have re-affirmed her appetite and desire.
For 15 months as the world's best player she swept any challenger aside with Amazonian ease. If it hadn't been for the injury and the tragic murder of a sister gunned down in a Los Angeles ghetto, that domination would have continued.
It has taken months for the physical and mental scars to heal, but there was a glint in her eye before last week's Nasdaq 100 Open.
There will be headline-making defeats ahead in the next few weeks, but can anyone really suggest that Justine Henin-Hardenne and Kim Clijsters will be able to stop this hugely gifted powerhouse adding to her six Grand Slams? I doubt it.
Serena's back. Start trembling, girls.
