Jen vs. Serena 2004: Part 4

Who will win this fourth meeting between American multi-grand slam champions Jennifer Capriati and Serena Williams.

Jennifer took both matches on clay (6-4 6-4 in Rome and 3-6 6-2 6-3 in Paris) while Serena MAULED Jennifer in London (6-1 6-1).

Who will win this 4th meeting of the year, almost guaranteeing them a spot in the final?

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Serena.[21]

I hope Jen makes it. But I didn't vote with my head....

I think Jennifer might. Serena seems to play a clean match followed by a messy one. She played a good match versus Schnyder. Jen will make Serena move more AND get inside her head.

I say Jen in three sets.

I think Serena needs to clean up her act and she´ll be fine. Jennifer CAN´T hurt Serena in that she´s gonna hit many winners, she´s gonna play like she played against Ai: just keeping the ball in play and wait for the error....Serena needs to be prepared for that and be patient....wait till the opening is there and GO for her shots.

should be good, but this one is really too close to tell. I hope that Serena can make it to another SF though.

Always bet on black!

OK prediction time!


If Jen beats Serena Momo will take her out in the semi

If Serena beats Jen Serena will take out momo in the semi

Best bet for momo: play jen.

Best bet for Serena: play momo

GO SERENA!

Did I say yet that this jen vs serena match up is tired and old and that they should never be in the same side of the draw again ever?
