Cappy vs Serena

I honestly think Serena is gonna come out on top in straight sets. Why? Like Pam said, about the only time in a while i've heard her make any sense, but Serena doesn't like to and rarely does lose to anyone two times in a row. But also although Jennifer got the win, her "confidence" level against a Serena Williams ON her game to me is still very low. What do I mean? Here is Jennifers comment she made about the matchup.

Quote:
"I prefer to play someone like Serena, rather than playing a real clay-courter on clay," Capriati said. "I feel if I can keep the balls in play, I should have the edge a little bit. Maybe she'll come up with the errors. The same thing that happened in Rome."
She is relying on Serena's game more so than she is relying on her own. I think this match is totally up to Serena, and when put in this situation before, and most recently the same round last year and same situation, serena jumped on it and handed Amelie a beat down. People say Amelie didn't show up, but in fact Serena showed up and showed out, not allowing Amelie to even get her foot, racquet, nose or anything else in the door. Its gonna be tough for Jennifer. I think Confidence wise, its there and pretty high for her, but I think that Confidence level of hers relies on the level of play Serena comes out with. If serena comes out on her game, Jen won't be to keen to stay positive, but if the situation is like Rome, just like Jennifer said she should have an edge, and if she doesn't then jen isn't playing to well either.

But that was the old Serena....this Serena isn´t at that level yet. Although Serena just has the knack to raise her game when the stakes are the highest...

Always bet on black!

oh, god, there have been so many threads like this, about this match, but anyway, its almost definately going to be a three set match, and cappy has to rely on Serena making errors here and there, and she is gonna have to take advantage of them.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

If I had a dollar bill for everytime a Serena fan said that her match against Jenn would be a straight set win for her, I'd be a very rich man.

Capriati 2-6; 7-6; 6-4 Serena will have 6-2; 4-1 and then choke.

I also think Serena will win this in two - if she comes out firing. Otherwise it will be the usual three set story.

JenCap will fight every point so it will be a very close match.

it will definately be a tough and close match. It could go either way for both players. Hopefully Jen will come out on top!!!!! Good luck!!!

No doubt, this match has the potential to be one of the tournament's very best.

Serena would have trouble with *any* player with the ability to get back a lot of balls - not just sporadically, but consistently throughout the match. Serena is ultra-agressive on pretty much every point, so we may see her getting a bit impatient and thus erratic if Jen can keep the rallies long. It's a legitimate strategy!

Who do you think the crowd will be behind? This could be a factor too! My guess is that they'll be behind Jennifer, as I guess she is seen as the underdog from a head-to-head perspective.

Overall, I think it will depend on Serena - she'll either come out firing missing, or firing hitting her targets. Jen will ajust her game accordingly!
