What Next Serena What Will Be Your Encore
WHAT NEXT SERENA WHAT WILL BE YOUR ENCORE ON & OFF THE COURT
” WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT ”
WHAT next Serena
she can luxuriate
in the possibilities
WRONG Serena Williams did not just win the Australian Open. Well of course she did. But she did not JUST win the Australian Open. Serena raised her career to a new level proving the wider point that applies to all of us. Losing in any aspect of Life can prove VERY useful and rewarding IF ……
IF you come back from it
In fact Serena is in far better shape today ( if not physically ) for the last two disastrous years in which his tennis went into the Toilet both physically and mentally. Had she won a few Big Ones these last 2 years winning the 2007 Australian Open would not have been the BIG Deal it is.
This scenario has added a layer of appeal to her and her image that only comes to those who fall from the heights and then return. It also works for those who have never scaled the heights but then experience miraculous success. But Serena falls into the first category. There is no doubt this was her sweetest victory.
Now the Question is ….
What if anything will Serena do to enhance further the meaning and the value of her victory Down Under. On the Tennis Side it is obvious win one or more of the remaining three 2007 Grand Slam events. Paris, London and New York. Even do the unthinkable – and it really is but – win all 4 Grand Slams. That would surely mark Serena among the Greatest Stories in Sports History.
What Serena has far more control over …
Is what she might do off the Court to enhance her Stature built upon her incredible Australian Open victory. Yesyesyes she can design some new clothes, sign more endorsement contracts, make guest appearances on Lost or Desperate Housewives. Even on 24. But so what.
It is not quite what we have in mind
Serena needs to find a Cause a project right now where her involvement will enhance that effort for her embracing it. For Serena to appear at a press conference in New York City to announce that she has aligned herself …..
………. with a program with tremendous human value will turn out a huge media contingent and add another level to her Persona that separates her further and further higher and higher beyond the Material Girls like Maria Sharapova.
All Serena needs to do is
find that Special Project
now while she is basking
in the Mesmerizing Glow of
her Triumphant in Australia
