Re: Kerber is a favourite to win US Open 2012

OMG why does every time someone beats a Williams sister that girl is suddenly the favourite? Did she win Cincy after she beat Serena?
I was actually surprised I didn't see a "Razzano is going to win Roland Garros 2012" thread

But yeah, she is probably going to reach the semis, so maybe next time she will actually be one of the favourites

Venus Williams Li Na Petra Kvitova

Re: Kerber is a favourite to win US Open 2012

I wouldn't say this strengthens her chances. She'd need to win more convincingly. It's not like VW is close to her 2000-2001 self.

Re: Kerber is a favourite to win US Open 2012

Kerber beat Serena in Cincinatti, now she has shown that big penetrating shots and even 120 mph serves are not a threat for her defense .....

Radwanska can't collect her shit together and won't be a threat for Kerber either ..... Who will beat her? Serena? probably yes, but among all players at USO she is probably the only one who can challenge her

Re: Kerber is a favourite to win US Open 2012

Yeah maybe if Serena, Na, Sharapova, Kvitova, Azarenka, Stosur, and atleast 3 others all suddenly contract a horrible illness and die on the spot. If she plays like she did today in her upcoming matches she probably will go out to Errani or Radwanska and not even capatilize on her piss easy draw to the semis.

Are you rolling your eyes at your own stupidity. Since if you think Sharapova is the title favorite as long as Serena is in the draw you might as well be.

Re: Kerber is a favourite to win US Open 2012

Wasn't the OP shitting on Kerber in the livescores ?

Apparently, nobody is unlikely enough a candidate for a desperate jinx effort these days.

Re: Kerber is a favourite to win US Open 2012

Well I guess she is "a favorite", not the favorite so it's not exactly wrong. I think she can definitely get to the semis again.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

I don't like Kerber and not happy that such unattractive tennis can take players in semis or finals.. But still who has better chances to beat Serena? Kerber or Azarenka? Kerber or Sharapova, Kerber or Kvitova? Kerber has what nobody has vs Williamses, she is confident that she is capable of winning these matches

Radwanska (P.S. Errani too) has the best game to beat Kerber in the draw. Kerber when she plays Radwanska can't out-rally her and she steps on the base-line trying to produce sub-par aggressive base-line tennis which results into lots of unforced errors. That's how their match at Wimbledon went and you could also see tonight, Kerber is just not good at all when she has to play-make and go for her shots on a regular basis when Venus actually gave her time to do so.

Serena isn't a threat for Kerber in this tournament -- she's a Venus in disguise and will error herself out of this tournament. Kerber is a lock for the F if she doesn't reproduce that choke in the second set against Venus.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.
