I like Martina, but I want to venus to win. And I really think she will win it in straight sets. It looks like she's back!

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

Wow, there are two threads of the same thing! Love it, anyway the most exciting matchup of the year IMO is here...I am very happy
I think Martina has too much match play this year to lose tomorrow. She is going to frustrate Venus and Vee will not be able to play clean enough to beat Martina at this point. I see Martina winning this in one very hard fought set followed by an easier one: 7-5, 6-3, but we will see!

not because of that. I just have the feeling... Just like I had one last year about Wimbledon....

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy...

Where's the 'who cares, I just wanna see the match' option?

And it looks like we will now, with Eurosport!

idk. I think that match toughness and time on court favor Hingis. Clay should work a bit in Hingis' favor because Venus will have to hit a lot more balls to win points out there. If either comes out a bt flat, I except the other to pounce. Venus wants to tie up their head to head, but it seems to be a tough task right now based on how little she has played this season compared to Martina. I'm gonna go Martina in a tight two setter or three sets. I just can't see my girl pulling it off this time, but I do see her tieing up the h2h sooner than later.
