Flavia actually played as well as she could've hope for. She could def. make a QF.

Srebotnik was more of a helpful bystander as Serena imploded in on herself.

Re: Which Williams conqueror played better?

both
but the only difference here is venus fought every point unlike serena. serena couldn't keep up with the rally and relied on big serve and kata exposed her game.

Flavia. Not taking anything away from Kata though, she played great too.

Re: Which Williams conqueror played better?

Overall neither Pennetta or Srebotnik played anything amazing. Meaning it's not like they played like top 10 players out there. They played their ranking while Venus and Serena clearly did not.

Re: Which Williams conqueror played better?

I voted they beat themselves
mainly Venus, who couldn't have a good and easy game without hitting 5 errors in one game!
she had 40-0/0-30/30-0 soo many times just to lose that and go to a long deuce game, some of which she lost
Serena was also just dreadful.
but credit to both Kata and Flavia, but the Williams Sisters made way too many errors and Kata and Flavia capitalized on that

Re: Which Williams conqueror played better?

I picked Kata by a small margin. Really they both played pretty well and used their style of play. Flavia is more of an aggressive counterpuncher and Kata is more of an all-court player and had to come up with more difficult shots around the net. Overall, pretty even though.

Re: Which Williams conqueror played better?

Even though I voted neither, I do think Flavia and Katerina played well; but I expected that. I expected a struggle by Venus and Serena against these two particular opponents. I always enjoy seeing Flavia and Katerina taking it to their opponents, but V/S errored the match away.

Re: Which Williams conqueror played better?

Pennetta actually played well, Venus wasn't THAT bad.

Serena was pathetic, how she can play like that in a Slam 3R against Srebotnik is amusing to me.
