SF: Serena def Jie 6-2 7-6(5)

Pity, it could have gone to third set.

Serena's serve saved her A LOT.
First set she was unbeatable.



Jie
Brought her game together in the second set. Pity it had to end in a DF.

Well done Serena. Nice job holding it together to take the win in the end.

Nice tournament Zheng. Too bad you couldn't get to the final

I can't believe it took so long for one of these to be posted!

Serena looked amazing in the first set -- a little dip in the second but that's to be expected with the delays. I'm SOOOOOO stoked about an all Williams final!

Re: SF: Serena def Jie 6-2 7-6(5)

I'm absolutely in love with Zheng's game She makes her shots look so effortless, what a pity she served that DF
As for Serena. If she hadn't had that serve today, it might have been much more interesting. Oh and that overdramatic come ons in TB

Swiss champs.

Sad it had to end with a double fault,I like Zheng's game and the way she builds up points,she played really well today and made Serena work hard for her victory.

Martina Hingis fan forever!

Re: SF: Serena def Jie 6-2 7-6(5)

It was sad that it ended with a DF for Jie. She should be proud of herself.

Well done Serena. Congratulations!

Her 4th Wimbledon final, Venus' 7th and their 3rd together! What a great story...I just love it!

Wasted a set point in 2nd set Very good baseline game from Little Jie, if Serena didn't have her serve to help her out she would have lost.

Ana Ivanovic is now retired.
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

Well done, Serena. So glad you didn't go to three sets because I don't think I could have handled it.

Nice fighting from Jie. Congratulations on an amazing run.

Amazing stuff from Jie.

She was never going to win with the difference in serving. But seriously, for me Serena = big serve.
