Petrova??

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.

Re: Nemesis of the top players

Zheng is actually a really good match-up for Stosur. I wouldn't call her Sam's nemesis.

Re: Nemesis of the top players

I mentioned that because each match of Serena and Nadia was three setter and Serena leads their H2H minimally 3-2. Not many players can achieve every match with Serena so close.

Fair enough. I think of nemesis as someone you either have beaten in the past and can't seem to figure out currently OR someone who just owns the other player.

I get that they have a close head-to-head but that hardly means she's a nemesis. She's never beaten Serena in a highs takes match. All of Serena's are retired (Capriati and Henin).

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.

if only high stakes matches are counted than Shrapova vs Serena is 2-5, so don't start it

LOL don't get mad! Its true Nadia hasn't won a big match over Serena which is a basic criteria to be considered the rival/nemesis of a player. I don't think only big matches count but if a player can't beat someone at a slam or in the late rounds of any tournament they are hardly a nemesis.

This, her record must be 5-2 or something similar, Id say Sam's nemesis is definitely Azarenka.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Nemesis of the top players

Serena's nemesis is either Henin or Venus.
