Serena Vs Santangelo who will win

Serena leads H2H 1-0
I just got finished watching Serena play Mara Santangelo at Wimby 05, and it was no easy feat. Mara destroyed Serena in the 1st set 2-6. Mara hits hard and flat. She likes going down the line on the backhand side. Serena had a very hard time reading her 1st serves. When Serena fed Mara a slice or heavy shot Mara typically commited an error. Mara doesn't like off pace stuff. Mara loved feeding off of Serena's pace, and used it against Serena to hit some great winners. All in all, Serena will have to move well if she wants to win in straights. Serving a high percentage of 1st serves is crucial. Because Mara was ripping Serena's 2nd serves. Any opinions?

Re: Serena Vs Santangelo who will win

Serena in 2. 6-4 7-5 Tough match, but some of the commentators were saying that the pressure was off of Mara in the earlier stages of the match, because EVERYONE left Center after Henman lost, but when people started coming back, Serena fed off of them. Also, I think she's moving better now than she did @ 05 Wimbly, and so I think she should win this one in 2.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

Serena was injured in 05 two totally different playing fields Serena should not have been playing.
