She will be playing on a neutral-bouncing court...outside in mild temperatures with no wind.

I would pick Serena Williams if I could only choose one, but I'd have Monica Seles and Chris Evert as backups in case Serena was busy. Doesn't matter who she plays, I know she'd fight to the end.

Which surface?

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I was going to post exactly the same thing Miss Chris or Young Monica would be my backups.

Chris Evert always showed up to win. She could be beat but you had to raise your level, hers wasn't going to drop.

Same for Young Monica.

Then there's Miss Williams, my best chance to put a beat down on anyone any day.

Steffi Graf.
