I have a feeling Sharapova will make the final
Same feeling I had last year, except last year I thought she'd win, since the quality of Serena's play during the tournament was uneven.
Can't say I think she'll win. I haven't seen Clijsters or Davenport yet. But Serena isn't going to win playing in the kind of pain she was in yesterday. Venus look VERY tentative. Put diffently, Sharapova would have to play far below form to NOT make the final.
Okay, if Venus suddenly rediscovers her form from 2001, she could beat her. But that's what it would take. And Venus isn't even trying to play like that. I just don't see a loss for Sharapova on that side of the draw. Petrova is very gifted athletically, but....
Ah well, I'll watch anyway.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
