Pennetta: can she win the USO?

She has had a great summer and going thru her matches like a no. 1 should!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Pennetta: can she win the USO?

I would love Flavia to win the US Open, or any slam. But lets be likely here.......it would be a dream come true, and you know Kuznetsova won the US Open at a similar rank five years ago............but I'm not sure, and she will likely to face Serena in QF who I dont think she will be able to beat.

Re: Pennetta: can she win the USO?

Unless she meets someone like Clijsters, Wozniacki who is a good defender, against who she just doesn't have enough offensive power and weapons, she could do it. Safina, Williams', Azarenka, Sharapova, are perfect matchups for her, as she has the game to force them into errors, and she can also throw an ocassional winner here and there.The serve can be a liability at times, also questionable how that would look against a good returner. But definitely a candidate for bigger things.

she has barely broken a sweat, she is moving so well, producing some incredible shots and most of all she is full of confidence. If she is serena's qf, I fear for serena coz of one quaterena babe at this rate if she gets past serena ie. if they both get that far, not even venus/kim can stop her.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Flavia's fabulous footwork can get her the victory. Its possible.

Re: Pennetta: can she win the USO?

If she plays Venus in the final, yes

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Don't know about that, but the potential Flavia/Serena QF is looking like it will be the most interesting one.

Re: Pennetta: can she win the USO?

that will be a dream come true...but as she said: better one round at time!

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

If she wants to beat Wozniacki she would need to stay away from long rallies. Shorten the rallies on Caroline and hit her with drop shots and attempt winners quickly.

She's not going to play against Mirzas and Wozniaks all the way through.
