Vera will win tomorrow's Wimby final if...

...Serena serves fewer than 13 aces. You heard it here first.

Serena has not really played well or had any good wins in the tourney, but she is serving like never before. It reminds me of '99-'00 when Sampras could still win Wimby even playing like shit from the baseline.

If the level of Serena's serve drops off tomorow, Vera will, barring a choke, be the 2010 Wimbledon titlist.

Vera will not win tommorrows wimby final.

Serena will show up for ONCE.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

According to the stats, (19 winners, 14 Unforced errors) Serena didn't really play that poorly in the semi.

-one of those "bad" Williams fans that everyone keeps talking about

You know as well as I do that UE/winner stats are always inflated on grass, and cant be relied upon to tell about the quality of play.

I'm confused, then. In the past, when Venus and Serena would hit 5946034573690341 errors in their matches on grass, the numbers would be used to validate what the fans would call a "bad match."

Now that Serena's Error/Unforced Error ratio is in her favour, we now have to consider "inflated numbers?" I don't think Serena is ever going to win one of these quality-of-tennis arguments.

Re: Vera will win tomorrow's Wimby final if...

I agree that this is not totally a foregone conclusion. Serena hasn't been that brilliant apart from serving, and I do think her semifinal was her worst match so far. Zvonareva's balls are effective and tricky on grass, although obviously she won't have the lefty advantage that Kvitova had.

Plus, I think Vera's nerves will be eased by the fact that she's the overwhelming underdog in her first ever Grand Slam final. She's gonna have her back against the wall from the start, and tht should help her.

For the record, Sampras' final in 1999 vs. Agassi is one of the best tennis matches ever played. Brilliance from everywhere.

But you can compare Serena at Wimbledon right now to Federer, even. The only reason why Federer won in 2007 and 2009 (and stayed close in 2008) was his serve. His game besides the serve has been unremarkable for quite some time.

Being an underdog against Serena didn't help Safina much. I would kill for Vera to win, but I don't think there's much chance of it.

Vera is not going to win... unless Serena's serve is really off

Re: Vera will win tomorrow's Wimby final if...

Has Zvonareva's success on grass really tricked TF that she is a good grasscourt player?
