Who will win? Mara or Serena

This match I suspect will be pretty close. I think that if Serena wins easily though, she will make it farhter in the tournament.

Re: Who will win? Mara or Serena

Mara can be a very awkward customer if she keeps the ball in court - suffers from third set chokeritis.
Santangelo in three sets.

Re: Who will win? Mara or Serena

mara i think, she almost beated amelie at the usopen, if she is in a good day she can easily win! serena is not feeling great, and she still has to find her game, otherwise she was not going to lose to bammer.
so i say mara in two sets

Re: Who will win? Mara or Serena

It can go either way, IMO.

Santangelo, 6-2 4-6 7-5 or S. Williams, 4-6 6-2 6-4.

Re: Who will win? Mara or Serena

Here's the thing. Serena has NEVER lost in the first round of a major. Second of all, she beat Na Li in worse condition last year in the 1st round. This was the Serena with no real matches under her belt and had just gotten crushed 6-3 6-1 but Elena D. in Hong Kong. Serena was up 6-3 3-1 against Bammer before fatigue and soreness set in. Plus, that was her first tournament in 4 months and with a new racquet. Serena will find a way to win this match.

There's a first time for everything! Serena may not lose this round, but you can bet that FATIQUE, LACK OF MATCH PLAY, NEW RACQUET, FITNESS, are all going to be factors. You can count on it!
