OK, so let's quantify the Justine/Serena Quarterfinal:

Assuming both get through their next match(and I think Serena will have her hands full if a mentally stable Daniela shows up, whereas I think Justine will beat Patty pretty handily), who do you give the edge in this match?

I'm gonna hate myself in the morning(as Bugs Bunny would say), but for my money it's 55-45 Serena.

Please God, let me be wrong, just this once!

What's your numerical take?

JESUS

The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. Ps. 36:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Ps. 14:1, 53:1

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Prov. 1:7

...Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Job 28:28

Re: OK, so let's quantify the Justine/Serena Quarterfinal:

I love 'em both... and until they prove differently (meaning more than one or two victories on a given surface), I'll always take Justine on clay and Rena everywhere else...

Rena in straight sets.

95-5

Ju and Rena are coming for your faves... and nobody escapes alive, I promise you!

One of the very few people walking the planet who's top 2 faves are Serena and Justine

Re: OK, so let's quantify the Justine/Serena Quarterfinal:

I don't know why, but I just have this gut feeling that Justine is gonna beat Serena this time.

I don't know why, but I'm nervous because I think she has the mental edge over Serena and she's been very quiet.

Justine really should have beaten Serena at the NASDAQ. 2 years ago, I would have never said that I think Justine could beat Serena on grass. But this year I think she can if she keeps her level of play up.

Everytime I have this gut feeling with either of the sisters, it's always true.

I'm gonna say 60-40 in favor of Justine.

Justine has played well, but she hasn't played anyone near Rena's caliber yet.

Rena wins easy

Onyxangel,

The same can be said about Serena as well.

Hantuchova's talkin' alot of sh!t, so that is going to be tough. I am not saying that Serena would lose, but I wouldn't look past that.

Miami was very slow hardcourt. Slow to the point where PMac said that he didn't like this type of surface for Davis Cup matches, and would be picking a much faster hardcourt to play the semis on.

It in no way compares to grass.

Re: OK, so let's quantify the Justine/Serena Quarterfinal:

I am not worried about Justine or Serena. They both should win their fourth round matches in straight sets. Justine is playing better but Serena hates losing to the same player twice in a row and this is Serena's surface.

Serena playing doubles is not a good sign for Justine either because that's even more match play and conditioning for Serena. Henin has not been tested and you have got to give Serena the mental edge because she will go into the match with more time on court, meaning a greater chance that she will peak.

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

OK, but you still haven't quantified your prediction.

Re: OK, so let's quantify the Justine/Serena Quarterfinal:

IMO Justine is a slight favorite. 55-45. I haven't been impressed with Serena's play from the baseline. A bit too passive and hesistant, and trying to slice and spin a bit too much. Even against Sequera, she was rallying a lot. I don't think this will beat Justine even though her serve has worked excellently in the 2nd and 3rd round.

True, but they will.

I love Patty but she won't shake Justine. Serena has the edge over Hantuchova. Justine and Serena won't admit it but I seriously think they have both looked pass Patty and Hantuchova. They are the two most confident women in the game and when they hit the practice court they have each other in mind, knowing their meeting is inevitable. They respect each other enough to know that the other will hold their end of the bargain. That's the beauty of this rivalry.
