Seething bitches

- She used to know how to play tennis...
Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...
As her fans watch in awe at her ability to fuck that up...

I dont know if Makarova is ready for the ass whooping that will bestowed upon her on Saturday. First it was Bartoli, then it was Stosur...twice. Next up is Makarova.

Serena in 2 6-2 6-3

In a slam it wasn't.

Depends on how bad Serena is, but I doubt she'll be at AO levels, so Serena in 2.

Re: WWW US OPEN R3: Serena vs Makarova

I actually think Makarova is a toughish match-up for Serena She plays a bit like Kerber (except a far inferior version).

That said, it'll be hard for Serena to play as badly off the ground as she did in their AO match (that was dire even for her 2012 standards), and losing again to her in front of her home crowd would be something else even beyond the humiliations she's had in Slams this year, so she'll probably pull through, having been pushed to a tiebreak or two or maybe even having a set pinched off her.

Serena in two I am so worried for this match up after last time it could be Ekat again, however it might be a night match and will be so tough for Ekat in USA.

It's funny you don't even bring up the fact that Serena had a very bad ankle injury that she was recovering from in this match. That's a crucial detail that needs to be attributed to that loss. It happened in Brisbane and took months to fully recover. That was almost entirely responsible for her loss to Makarova, that damn ankle injury.

It probably won't be a night match. The USO on the first weekend tends to put their box-office matches on in the day session (I think the main US stations don't broadcast the night sessions at weekends).

May the best player of that day win... And all people hope it will be EKat who plays better that day.

I think Serena will take it easily, it will be like Stosur, Bartoli and Sharapova after losing to them convincingly she will be determined here.

Williamsova will probably romp through this one LOL. Her serve was very inconsistent today tho.
