Steve Tignor's USO SF predictions: Andrea vs Serena & Masha vs Sam

"Rather than being wide open, the WTA has a tentative shape coming into the New York, and a tentative new set of intros: It’s Serena and Maria, super-divas of the last decade, against the world. Let it begin."

First Quarter:
  • Winner: [10]Andrea Petkovic
  • Sentimental favorite: Kimiko Date-Krumm
  • Potential American upset artist: Vania King

Second Quarter:
  • Winner: [28]Serena Williams
  • Young American to catch, maybe for the first time: Sloane Stephens

Third Quarter:
  • Winner: [3]Maria Sharapova
  • Dark horse: [12]Agnieszka Radwanska
  • Young American to watch, likely for the first time: Madison Keys
  • First-round matches to watch: Sorana Cirstea vs. Yanina Wickmayer; Aravane Rezai vs. Flavia Pennetta

Fourth Quarter:
  • Winner: [9]Samatha Stosur
  • Young American to watch: Christina McHale

Final: [28]Serena Williams vs [3]Maria Sharapova

Steve Ignor, got one semifinalist right at Wimby. Lets see whether he got any better at predictions...

I think this is a pretty good prediction bar Petkovic. Sam has a pretty good draw and the only obstacle is Venus, whose form and health is suspect at the moment.

So who wins the final?

As for young Americans to watch, I am not sure about McHale after yesterday.

She thinks Caro was pushing her around with aggressive play.

I am afraid she'll turn out to be another version of Caro, a McPushina

Re: Steve Tignor's USO SF predictions: Andrea vs Serena & Masha vs Sam

yes and if that is the final we'll get an even worse match then last year, serena will rape maria something like 6-1, 6-1 in less then an hour

iumk not so sure sam wins the quarter, if sabine gets past venus in round 2 then she could easily beat sam

If that's the semi-final line up, I hope it's a Maria v Serena final.

Plz be true, though I'd prefer Venus over Sam, or even Sabine.
