Watching Cohen play against serena...

This girl Cohen has got game!!

Serena isnt swinging that freely yet, she is a bit tense, she's starting to loosen up tho but this cohen girl has no fear.

Her game reminds me so much of Justines....but with some Maurasemo mixed in (got more spin on her backhand then justin)

and i was suppose to go to this match tonite but couldnt get out of work earlier.

i saw her practice once. i thought she was very talented, hitting all sorts of nice shots off the backhand side.

perhaps not the best mover, and maybe lacks confidence and killer instinct?

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

Serena has had a tendency to make opponents look spectacular this year.

Then they play another top tier player and they get thrashed off the court.

She's been known to give people a name. Even if it is for a quick minute.

watching her movement, even her grunts, and the finish to her service motion is a bit like watching justine!!!


serena is up 5-3 btw in the second!!!

this girl is good tho, she does have some instinct she is not scared of serenas pace at all....

Love the backhand. Too bad about the first serve. She looks to be really talented, but oftentimes we never hear about players like that after a good match. It's too bad if this happens here.

Serena makes these people have 'game'.

A healthy and fit Serena would have thrased Haynes, Santagelo, Craybas, Cohen-Aloro, etc.

Cheers to the old Serena coming back soon...

Um, it's not all about Serena, you know. Haynes, Santangelo and Cohen-Aloro are talented! They were playing very well and were taking it to Serena. Granted Serena is definitely not at her best, but Steph was hitting some beautiful winners at Serena the game she broke her in the first set.

Meh.

I didn't think she looked particularly good. Average at best.
