Serena playing awful, having not more than 55% first serve in vs any pusher in their best form from the list
= competitive match .....
But the problem is that Serena should be rusty , otherwise it will be a beatdown of a pusher.
Serena doesn't let herself t play that bad vs her rivals as she can allow herself vs pushers.....
I think if Maria and Serena make it to the final. Maria will get a set off Serena. I think it will be the first set and then Serena will come back in the second and take the match in 3.
I don't feel that anyone has a real chance vs Serena. If Serena is focused and serves well (more than possible because of her form at AO this year) any player will struggle to even reach a BP on Serena's Serve , which of course will be saved by 120mph first serve... I don't see that it's poosible to beat Serena with any other score than 7-6 7-6 , and to do so you should be a servebot at least for one day to manage to hold serve the whole match...
At YEC Martha played preety good and tried to keep up with Serena.... She managed to do it for a while until she made a gift with DF + some terrific ROS from Serena = it was over.... Serena got this mental edge and didn't drop it till GSM
