Pressure is entirely on Serena.
She's been talking a big game, definitely feels as though she should be at the top of the tour, and is facing the player who dethroned her as the Queen of Wimbledon.
Winning this match will prove to everybody that she's back...losing it will only add strength to those doubting her ability to dominate again in the future...
Maria's situation is different...if she wins, people will be talking about whether we will begin to see maria domination a la seles. But if she loses, as long as it isn't a totally embarassing scoreline, it won't hurt that much - 'she's still young' and whatnot.
