Who will end Serena's Win-Streak?

who???

I don't think anyone other then these four can do it at this point...J. Cap was included because even when she is slumping she and Serena always manage to make it 3 sets...if Capriati got lucky at the right point she could pull of an upset of Serena in one of their matches, I believe =P

I'd put Lindsay Davenport in there, she has the weapons to do it.

Hope it will prove that I'm right if Kim plays Serena next week!



So this is love, Mmmmmm
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I'm all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I've been dreaming of
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
So this is love

I just don't think Davvy is in the right form yet...neither is Cappy for thatmatter, but that doesn't seem to be a factor in Cap Vs. Serena

The answer is Jennifer Capriati! They always pushed tight matches!

Franchesca Schiavone has a hell of a chance tonight. Serena's got a virus. That's why they moved her match til late. She's going to have endurance problems no matter what. Serena's gonna crank up the winner machine and end points fast. I think she's toast.

Only VENUS or a loss of focus or an injury will stop SERENA.

There was a bad flu bug floating around IW and SERENA may have contacted the virus from one of the players.

I hope that it isn't to serious, but VENUS is going to win this tournie anyway.

Here's the article, I saw it this afternoon and till Serena took court tonight, I was not sure she would play. I'm so happy she did and prevailed! I'm glad she has the next day off, rest Serena!!!

Virus could sideline top-ranked Serena


By Karen Crouse, Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
Friday, March 21, 2003



KEY BISCAYNE -- A stomach virus could accomplish what nobody on the court has been able to manage this year: Stop Serena Williams.

Williams was too sick Thursday to attend a scheduled news conference with older sister Venus at the Nasdaq-100 Open. The Palm Beach Gardens resident is slated to play Francesca Schiavone of Italy tonight on the Stadium court at the Tennis Center at Crandon Park.

Adam Barrett, the tournament director, said he moved Williams' 2003 Miami debut back to the second evening match on the showcase court, after No. 1-ranked Lleyton Hewitt's tournament opener against Francisco Clavet, to give Serena as much time as possible "to rest and get her strength back."

"First off, we hope she's feeling better," Barrett said. "She's the No. 1 seed. She's the defending champion. She's won the last four Grand Slams. She's 11 and 0 this year. As a tournament director, yeah, I'm concerned."

Serena, 21, was supposed to appear alongside her sister to promote an Internet auction they are holding to benefit the Tom Joyner Foundation. Venus, 22, appeared at the podium alone. At one point, she looked over her shoulder at a cardboard promotional picture of Serena for Doublemint gum and said, "There she is. She's not too talkative."

Later, when Venus was asked why Serena couldn't make it to the news conference, she squirmed in her seat and said, "She just wasn't able to make it."

Meilen Tu made it through her first-round match but just barely. Tu and Boca Raton's Bethanie Mattek battled on the Stadium court under a very hot sun for nearly three hours. Mattek pulled out the match, 6-1, 6-7(4), 7-6(4), after which Tu fainted.

"Everything shut down after I shook the umpire's hand," said Tu, who was carried off and treated for heat exhaustion. She said in the third set she started cramping in both hamstrings, both calves, her left quadriceps and her right (serving) arm.

Other than that, Tu felt as fresh as spring. Richard Gasquet, the youngest player in the men's draw at 16 years, 9 months, also wilted in the extreme heat.

Gasquet was forced to retire because of heat exhaustion while down 2-1 in the third in his match against Jean-Rene Lisnard.

In other matches, Anna Kournikova lost to Dinara Safina 6-1, 6-4, Boca Raton's Vince Spadea defeated Christophe Rochus 6-3, 6-4 and Mark Philippoussis eliminated Feliciano Lopez 7-6 (5), 6-4.

Spadea, who will face fifth-seeded Carlos Moya in the next round, provided the last word on the heat. "It was very hot," he said. "It's hard to stay totally hydrated during a match like that. It was a hot day and the wind didn't help much. I'm from Florida, so what I say counts."
