I think Justine will beat Serena this time

Justine is much stronger than several years ago, and even in Miami, she gave Serena a bagel, but finally missed 2 match points.
60%-65% first serve is the key for Justine to win this Wimbledon.

Against Serena it may have to be more like 70% or higher. Justine's 2nd serve isn't as attackable as other players', but we know what Serena will do with a short ball on a fast court.

You still haven't proven anything.

Serena is still much better on grass and if she plays well she will win. Justine is a lot better than she was in 2003 but Serena can still raise the level of her game. Miami has nothing to do with this match. Justine was the favorite in Paris and Serena is the favorite here unless she plays an ugly match.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

Re: I think Justine will beat Serena this time

We haven't seen Serena on grass since 2005 so it's hard to tell how she'll play.

If Justine has a smart game plan and executes it well, I think she has a great chance.

Serena would have to beat herself for Justine to win.

She missed two match points? No Serena snatched them, and pushed justine's wig back to take the title

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

The key to this match is Serena's unforced errors.

Look most said the same thing about hardcourts and Justine nearly proved them wrong. If Justine plays well she will have a good chance of winning. If she keeps up the form from Eastbourne this week theres no reason why she cant beat Serena and go on to win the title.

Re: I think Justine will beat Serena this time

We havent even seen Serena play on grass yet this year. That's why I hate threads like this because the original poster has based this thread on only Justines grass court play. I bet after one or two of Serena's matches at Wimbledon someones going to say the opposite thing. And the way I see it is, if Justine can't beat Serena with two match point chances then she probably never will on any other surface besides clay. We all know how well Justine was playing on that day but no matter what happened, the end results was: Serena won.

You sound like Serena is playing a nobody! Justine is world number 1, 6 time slam champion... shes more than capable of winning a match on her own.

Yeah she does have a great chance your right. It's sad we, the sensible fans who respect each player have to put up with the endless threads.

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Yes and how she'll handle the pressure with Henin coming to the net during the whole match.

As always, it's all going to be how Serena will play, not how smart a game plan justine has.
