Exclamation

I think Serena will win 6-3 or 6-2, 6-2 if she plays the way she played tonight.

If Serena plays like today....sorry K-lina, but it was fun while it lasted.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

what i'm hoping for is that k-lina gets a high percentage of first serves in. she's winning about 80% of her first serve points for the tournament so maybe she can win 60-70% of them vs. serena...

ugh, why do they all suck????????

You have to favor Serena heavily...but that shouldn't stop people from rooting for Sprem.

Don't know enough about her to be a fan, but here's hoping she can at least make it interesting!

I think Serena may be challenged tomorrow, but if she plays like she did today, goodbye!

the only time i've seen her play is when she lost badly to Daniilidou last week, so maybe not the best match to judge her on, but i liked her backhand

yeah, she didn't play too well vs. eleni

when she is on, k-lina's first serve is a major weapon because she can get a high percentage of serves in at 105+ mph (which she hasn't done yet, although she did hit 9 aces today against a pretty good returner). Her groundstrokes are powerful, esp. her backhand. Great mover. Her weakness is her second serve (which seems to be getting better) and the fact that she doesn't have too much experiance playing these big matches.

ugh, why do they all suck????????
