How will Serena react...

How do you think Serena will react to Elena's ridiculously weak serve.. She could either attack it which she will, and be successful, or she could have some serious trouble returning it just as Venus did.. What do you think?

Serena has a knack for eating serves for lunch. But Dementieva's serve literally has nothing on it, which might draw a few errors from Serena trying to put too much on the return

Different surface.. Serena loves grass, Elena hates it, and serena has been gone for 8 months

Absolutely, I think this match will be over quickly. No probs.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

The slower the serve the more damage Serena´s gonna do with it. It doesn´t matter...second serves?! This is what Serena says about them: " I don´t care if you´re female, male or dog....I´m gonna attack your second-serve." And that is what she´s gonna do tomorrow. For sure.

Look in all her matches what she´s been doing with second-serves.

Always bet on black!

No offence to other Venus fans...but right now Venus is one of the most shittiest players on the tour. I never even posted in that Elena has a 1 in 250 000 thread because I assumed Elena would win and I didn't want people like you saying anything.

People like me.. hmm i said that once, and i heard about it for days. So i'd stay away from saying that. well sorry if YOU didn't say that, but every williams sister fan expected venus to win, and discredited elena big time. It's only natural to want your fav to win, so what's the point of putting down the other player..

Sorry, but I agree. Venus will win in straight sets....and will furthermore show why Dementieva doesn't deserve a Top 10 spot.
I believe the term is... owned.
