Picture looks elongated.
Would need more photos ... Not sure she can be that thin right now. Gonna take longer.
Would be very surprised.

Entirely possible to reduce significantly during that time..... However, she'll be in her 38th year of birth and is past her prime. I, for one, have no expectations for her for the coming season and for the rest of her career, but at least she got into shape and lost that bulk. She looks nice.....#ed_op#/i#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

I think she's got a full good year of tennis in her. 2019 will be it. She will still be very sharp at the Aussie Open. By the time US Open comes around, I don't think she'll be able to retrieve Sabalenka's bombs.

Look at Lebron James. Can't dribble to the basket to win a match. Turns the ball over at the last shot to tie the game. Misses free throw that would win the match. The man is done IMHO. Can't close it out anymore. L.A great weather is not helping. He is having too much fan off the court. Retirement soon.

For Serena, 1 more year, 1 more slam. and we are done !!!!

I think so far at L.A, he's been the one holding the team back. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#They have trusted him in crunch times, and he so far has failed to deliver.

#ed_op#div#ed_cl##ed_op#span class="name"#ed_cl#Fair enough.

Yeah, but even when he was younger he never really had it. He always lacked the killer
instinct and seemed to dread pressure moments. My brother still talks about him refusing
to take that last shot in that meaningless 2012 All Star game years ago where both Kobe
and Melo clowned him for passing it off.

He doesn't physically have it, but mentally never really had it to begin with.
