WWW 2011 YEC SF: [3] Wimbledon Champ Petra v [7] USO Champ Sam

Petra had her way in the Red Group where nobody had enough power to challenge her but it will be different tomorrow

I have a feeling Samantha will come out on top

Tricky match. If this is the first match tomorrow, Stosur might have chance - Stosur in 3 (Their last encounter in Melbourne this year was awfully close). But I still believe Kvitova sails through in 2

Sam will win if she plays like she did today

Massacre.

There's no way I can imagine Shanksur can handle the canons that will becoming at her.

It's a good respite for Petra before meeting another pusher in the final, PID or Vera.

Petra SHOULD be able to take Stosur's time away and get through comfortably. Just needs to focus on making as many returns as possible. Isn't going to be able to go for home runs on every return like she did against Zvonareva, Wozniacki, and Radwanska.

I'm just imagining Kvitty's left-handed serves against Sam's BH...
Petra in 2.

Possibly the best lefty serve in the history of women's tennis against a dodgey backhand? Sam played great today but this is a horrible match-up for her.

Lefty serve to a BH that is not the strongest. If Petra can keep it together I think it will be 2 sets. Maybe a TB in there somewhere

Re: WWW 2011 YEC SF: [3] Wimbledon Champ Petra v [7] USO Champ Sam

Watching them play in Australia this year I would have to favor Kvitova in this matchup in anything but clay. However Sam played really well today. Could still go either way, but I am thinking Kvitova. Azarenka (who will surely be the other finalist barring a huge upset) will be hoping for Stosur and not Kvitova obviously.

Re: WWW 2011 YEC SF: [3] Wimbledon Champ Petra v [7] USO Champ Sam

Pretty sure this is another Sharapova-like match-up for Stosur. Kvitova is tall enough that Stosur's serve/forehand bounces straight into her strike zone, and Kvitova's own groundstrokes are so flat and land so deep that Stosur doesn't have time to set up for her shots anyway.

Petra 6-3 6-2.

I think this surface somehow suits Sam's game, so we'll see. Maybe 3 sets.
