Your 2008 Wimbledon Semi Final Picks?

These are my picks for the Wimbledon semi finals:

(1) Ana Ivanovic Vs. (6) Serena Williams

(3) Maria Sharapova Vs. (7) Venus Williams

I'm not quite sure who will win from those encounters considering Ivanovic and Sharapova have been in great form, however, Serena has won 3 titles this year and I'm sure feels she is long overdue for a third Wimbledon title and Venus always seems to come to life at Wimbledon.

BTW, I'm hoping to see a QF match between Maria Sharapova and Lindsay Davenport. I don't think Davenport's draw before that stage is really that difficult for her and once she wins one or two matches I think she should have enough momentum to reach the quarters to play Sharapova.

What do you all think?

I'm pretty sure most people think this will be the final four...

I agree. Serena VS Ana and Maria VS Venus. I hope for Williams's final but Serena VS Maria should be good too

I agree. Ivanovic v. Serena and Sharapova v. Venus. However I think most people expect this and there are usually one or two surprises in any draw so it might not happen.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

No reason to have a thread on this.

The SF picks are pretty obvious, most will pick the same. Of course, it may not be these four but to predict something other than these four is not logical.

As usual, the obvious semifinal line-up WON'T happen. I expect 2 of those 4 to fail before the SF, but I don't know who. Jankovic, Radwanska or some other will sneak through.

Doesn't this mean you think the WS won't make it? You say you don't know which two of the four will fail, but then you give two names that are in the WS parts of the draw.

well, I didn't follow up closely the draw... I gave two names, but those who sneak through may easily be Szavay or Petrova for example. Some in-form or just-came-to-form player. Not Davenport or Mauresmo.

We DESERVE this semifinal!


As women tennis fans we DESERVE this. I mean yes we like the no-names getting far but this is Wimbledon. I hope we get the Super 4 as the Final Four in the second week. We need these kind of matches.
