Don't Call it a Comeback: Serena Williams

From The Cocoa Lounge

Serena Williams at the Australian Open
Serena Williams looks like a champion again at the Australian Open.



In recent years, audiences have become more accustomed to seeing Serena Williams at Grand parties--not Grand Slams, and her commitment to tennis has been questioned more times than her fashion choices. So when she showed up with her racket to the Australian Open, many were expecting a speedy exit. But yesterday, after defeating her first Top 10 player in two years, Serena Williams' commitment is clear: She's back and she's swinging at anything moving.

And whether she takes the Australian or not, it's good to see our girl back in championship form. So while we really can't "call it a comeback," it's the closest Serena has come to one in years.

This is great, I read that she was coming back but had not heard about the outcome. Found you on Flickr while browsing for Serena.

Saw her match last night on ESPN2 against Jankovic. It might be time to call it a comeback! : )

I never watched tennis before I saw Serena and if she ever retires she's gonna take me with her and a piece of my heart.

She's winning the Australian. That's all I've gotta say.

Congratulations to Serena for making it to the Australian Open final!

We also hear Serena's in the early stages of producing a film based on tennis legend, Althea Gibson's life.
