If Venus plays her close to her best, she wins.

Re: Venus Williams v.s. Maria Sharapova 4th Round

Based on current form and their last 3 matches - undeniably Maria in 2.

Re: Venus Williams v.s. Maria Sharapova 4th Round

Venus plays poorly, she spreads ball everywhere. With her current form she shouldn't trouble Maria at all
Anyway, I hope I am proven wrong because I want to see a good match like Jankovic-Safarova.

Swiss champs.

Re: Venus Williams v.s. Maria Sharapova 4th Round

i ain't got a clue. depends on which venus shows up i suppose. if the one that's been showing up most of the year comes, she'll lose cuz pova has picked up her game. she might get a light under her booty since it'll probably be played on centre court.

Re: Venus Williams v.s. Maria Sharapova 4th Round

Maria will have Venus for "lunch". Maria is serving much better.

Pova in 2 honestly. Venus doesn't have much of a chance.

Re: Venus Williams v.s. Maria Sharapova 4th Round

Unless Venus steps up her game tremendously, I don't think she will be on court for more than an hour. Maria in 2 easy sets.

Re: Venus Williams v.s. Maria Sharapova 4th Round

its all about which venus shows up. if she's serving well and keeping the ue errors down then i pick venus. i think shes a bad matchup for maria. she can match maria for power so sh wont be blown off the court, shes a much better mover and veus is much more comfortable coming to net and her volleying is better than marias volleying. ifvenus plays like she did in her 1st and 3rd round matches she'll go down in straights. its tougth to say but you cant expect venus to play badly because of two matches. she can step it up at any time.i like maria in 2 sets or venus in 3 sets.i think one thing people should forget about is current form. with venus it means nothing and once the pressure is on sharapova her serving problems could creep back up

I agree completely.

But you never know with her. It could go 2 sets for either players' favour. But definitely 70-30 Maria with Venus' current form.
