Rising "Queen Mary" is liable to spring a "leak" anytime.. one victory does not constitute a prediction like that ....but "good luck" to her

Uhmmm...I believe Mary can take a set from Serena, but only if she's really "on" like she was against Shaughnessy yesterday. She has a very outside chance of beating Serena. I wouldn't be stunned or shocked if she did beat Serena on clay, actually. It's just not likely. Here's hoping for a great match, though!

I don't think this will happen, but good luck to Mary, it should be a good match!
I expect Serena to win in 2 hardfought sets.

People by and large miss a major side effect of a good serve. Besides winning you points, the serve also undermines the opponent's confidence, tenacity, energy and will to fight. When you add to it a superb return game like Serena's, the opponent can be thrown off her game completely and the whole thing can quickly turn into a debacle. This what I expect to happen tonight against Mary.

It may not happen the same way with Justine just because of her built up confidence, knowledge of being the top dog, and recent memory of overcoming similar situations.

Rising Queen Mary? I dont think so. Mary better pray that she was on like that against Shaugnessey,or else shell be packing her bags.

Mary has a great serve herself and she'll need for it to be working at full force if she is to trouble Serena.

It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile, winning's winning

Mary is just a weaker-version of Lindsay D....and we all know what Serena does to Lindsay..

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

I think Mary is the better version of Lindsay.
But Mary, I don't know. In my opinion she should be in top 10 easily!
Serena will beat her though easily in my opinion.

Remembering their French Open match, I really don't see Mary putting up much of a fight.

Please mary beat serena on hard court 6,1 6,2 did Linsday did that??? The real Mary is as good as the best linsday...Mary hit the ball harder and when she is in great shape she moves much better than linsday...If Serena is not at 120% she will have a very bad moment against mary
