Who Will Reach SF From Wimby 2nd Q??? White-Hot Unbeatable Serena HALEP The Favorite

the 2nd Quarter is by far the most interesting quarter at ITF The Championships GS 2000

I think the 31 other players here should just wave the white flag, withdraw and accept the inevitable that the unbeatable Serena HALEP will destroy them all on her way to the SF without losing a set

my fave Na

my fave Aggie

probably handing the XWTA #4 spot over to Golden Set Sara

Re: Who Will Reach SF From Wimby 2nd Q??? White-Hot Unbeatable Serena HALEP The Favor

Li should get thru there. Halep beat Flipkens, but Li has won on grass against Sharapova.
Also interesting is Vesnina-Lisicki. That could be a tough match for Serena against that winner
Lisicki has a streak of beating the FO winner at Wimbledon. I think when Vesnina is on, she is very dangerous on grass.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Who Will Reach SF From Wimby 2nd Q??? White-Hot Unbeatable Serena HALEP The Favor

I'm hoping that Petra Martic will make a run

She has recently found some form on grass, and is in the section with Petrova & Pavly - so would not need a massive upset to get to a 4R with the winner of Agnes' section.

Re: Who Will Reach SF From Wimby 2nd Q??? White-Hot Unbeatable Serena HALEP The Favor

I think Halep right now is the strongest player in that quarter, by a considerable margin. However, she played an awful lot of great tennis lately and might burn out during the first week of Wimbledon. She should dispatch Govortsova and Li easily, but I wouldn't be surprised if she bombed out in a very frustrating match against, say, Beck.

Radwanska looks rather promising in her section, Watson is a good counter to Keys, but useless otherwise, Pironkova is completely out of form, Rybarikova no threat to an average Radwanska either and Petrova, well, let's not mention her.

Li sucks on grass. And her current form is not too good either.

Re: Who Will Reach SF From Wimby 2nd Q??? White-Hot Unbeatable Serena HALEP The Favor

The player Li just lost to won her semi 62 60 and her final 62 61.
I'd be pretty confident Vesnina could beat everyone Halep beat this week.
So lets see. Li's game is fine on grass. Her loss to Lisicki was high quality.
Lisicki and Vesnina are both in Serena's quarter. Those 2 are very dangerous on grass, to anyone

3 Actually, but I agree that she's not that good on grass recently.
However, NaNa tends to amaze ppl when she's not the favorite, so I'd stay positive about her performance

+1

Would be great if her new-found love to grass would win her a few matches.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

I agree that Li's loss to Vesnina was more about Vesnina playing good tennis than anything about Li - Li played one of her best sets on grass in a very long time against Vesnina and still lost it, and she just gave up in the second as usual. But that's somewhat beside the point when it comes to who wins the second quarter. Vesnina will not win it, and she will not win the first quarter either. Li is in the second quarter, but she needs to play better against Halep than she played against Vesnina. She won't.

Re: Who Will Reach SF From Wimby 2nd Q??? White-Hot Unbeatable Serena HALEP The Favor

Vesnina was excellent in her match with Li. She hit big off both sides, served well, volleyed well. Looked in career form.
Lets see if Halep can play that level
