Serena Williams already has everyone on tour scared to death. Just four tournaments back after a year away with illness and injury, and Williams is already such a strong favorite to win the U.S. Open that it’s hard to think of anyone capable of beating her.
Name one. Petra Kvitova maybe? She is the young player who won Wimbledon. Caroline Wozniacki is quickly disappearing, even though she’s still ranked No. 1. Kim Clijsters’ body is falling apart, and her desire to keep up this comeback is fading. Li Na? Nah.
Think how jealous golf must be now. Williams’ comeback has been so quick and easy, everything that Tiger Woods’ comeback has not been. So the PGA Championship ended Sunday with a playoff between two guys no one had ever heard of. If people tell you today at work that they were watching the PGA Sunday, you are being punk’d.
