Who impressed you more in their r16 match? Serena, Venus or Kim.

The three title favourites now remaining; who do you think displayed a more formidable level of tennis throughout the course of their match?

I'm not sure because I only saw parts of Venus and Kim's matches. I was impressed with the way Venus fought back because it was seriously looking like a 3rd set was in store for her. And from what I saw from Kim I wasn't impressed at all. Serena's 1st serve and strong mental fortitude was the only part of her game that impressed me today. Her 2nd serve wasn't that great and her return of serve was shit. So...I guess Venus or maybe it's a draw between all three,

Rena's Army, Ana and Vika!!!

Serena.

If only for the reason that she looks as physically fit at Wimbledon than she has for years. Really elevates her game.

Well one of them will win the title, so I'm interested what people think of their relative levels.

I was impressed by Serena's serve. She lost the plot on ROS but that serve delivered ova and ova and ova again.

Serena for sure. Kim would have lost to Maria today. Venus just wasn't impressive either.

Agreed. Serena's serve and her overall mental toughness got her out of trouble especially in that first set against Maria.

Probably Serena - I think the score would have been easier had she been able to take control early on when she had some opportunities, but Maria was playing quite well. Serena made some clutch shots, and I didn't think she did a lot wrong. Kim was very patchy, and Venus had a much easier opponent but still had some struggle in that second set.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

None of them were at their best, but Serena still impressed most and she will win Wimbledon for sure. Can't see anyone beating her.

Sarin was best of the 3 today

Vee was average, and Kim was all over the place

Having said that, none of them actually impressed me

I only say Serena because she had the most dangerous, on grass, opponent.

Yep on all counts.

Typical Vee, playing to the level of the competition. Kim was okay, but a mentally tough Sha'po' sends her home. While Serena's serve was impenetrable, I'm a bit concerned what will happen if made to play extensively off the ground.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!
