Serena's Road to the Final

Round 1 : Santangelo
Round 2: Krajicek
Round 3: Nadia
Round 4: Jankovic
Quaterfinals: Kuznetsova/Dementieva
Semi-finals: ?
Final: Winner of Top Half (?)


This is purely hypothetical... but who could Serena play in the semi's anyway?

Everyone has a path to the final even the qualifier who is yet to make the main draw.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Yup, I hate when people try to be clever and look stupid.

Really, don't even look at me...

She could play Kuznetsova in the QF and Mauresmo/Dementieva/Vaidisova in the SF.

I think Serena should be proud if she makes the Round of 16 here, but it will be hard. Beating Nadia would be an accomplishment at this point.

Re: Serena's Road to the Final

Beating Santangelo would be an accomplishment after her loss to Bammer.

But I fully expect her to beat Santangelo for the record.

Re: Serena's Road to the Final

you would have to expect serena to make it the third round of the AO this year or otherwise they'll be some serious questions to be asked. i wouldn't be surprised if she lost to santangelo but she should get past her as she is probably more hungier ever since that Hobart loss to Bammer.

Re: Serena's Road to the Final

I am not even sure if she can repeat her last year's performance here.

Re: Serena's Road to the Final

Before we start considering Serena's QF and SF opponents, we should probably FIRST wonder how she'll fare in the first 3 rounds. Santangelo will be a good first test, but even a semi-injured Petrova in Round 3 may be too much for Williams at this point.

Her confidence is (as always) high; her game is (as always) amazing; but, the big question right now is her fitness. I'm having a hard time seeing her huff-n-puff her way through more than three rounds.

Good luck, Serena. Get back to where you belong. The game needs you.

If Nadia has a stomach injury, Serena may be able to beat her.
