How is it like the final? Schnyder, Dementieva and Jankovic are more than capable of beating the winner of tomorrow's match.

Re: Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova Charleston QF

my 2nd and 3rd faves

at least its not a slam so whoever wins doesnt matter
but serena better not lose at any slams again

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova Charleston QF

I think Serena is going to fall into the same trap that Henin did when she played Serena in Miami.
Specifically she might come in a little too overconfident and expect to play as well as she did the last 2 times she played Pova and she'll expect Sharapova to play on the same (specifically serve) level as last time. Added to this Serena isn't and hasn't been playing her best tennis while Sharapova is closer to her best and has more confidence coming in.

Pova in 2 or 3 depeding on how that fall affected Serena.

And this is far from the forgone final. Jankovic, Dementieva, etc could beat either of these two on clay. Shame it's a QF though.

Re: Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova Charleston QF

Maria really should have just lost to Perebiynis to avoid another obliteration.

Serena, in a more dominant display than the racquet in the 2008 Miami Final.

Re: Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova Charleston QF

From what I've seen so far of both of them, I'd say Maria in 3. That is, if she can find a way to mentally hang with Serena, which I suppose has a lot to do with her own serve. This will not be the most graceful clay court match.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.
