Can Craybus win the whole thing?

She played amazing against Serena and she deserves every bit of credit for this win regardless of how well or crappy Serena played. I think she has a very good chance of extending her winning record against the sisters and if she makes it past Vee, it's anyone's guess who will win the title. I mean, she may not have the weapon to push Vee but she has the game to make her play. Venus may have earned more money and won more matches than Jil but this time, my money is on Jil. I saw her play 10 years ago somewhere and she was a crappy player who shouldn't be playing on the circuit and I still think her game is kinda not professional but congrats to her on this great tournament she's been having.. maybe this is the tournament of her career and could get even better. I just can't help but wish her the very best against another Williams I doubt.

Venus probably will win but she would have been happier and got more confidence beating her sister. Jill is not the kind of play that you gain confidence by beating. Jill plays like a satelite player now and then but is capable of frustrating some hard hitting players with all those slow dead balls.

If the other 15 players all "fractured" their ankles, then yes.

Yes. Jill played amazing tennis today, overpowering Serena with her serve and heavy groundstrokes. If she can keep up this level for the rest of the year I expect to see her in the top 20.

I don't think she can win the title, but I think she has chances to upset Venus, after all, she's probably more confidente now that she has beaten Serena, and Venus haven't passed round of 16 in a GS since two year, so she can be mentally fragile during that match.

I know she's skyrocketed to the top of my list for sure I don't see who can beat her.

Look for the Craybus Express to derail a second Williams sister.
