Re: Australian Open R4: (1) Serena Williams vs (14) Ana Ivanovic

Is there any info about some newest Serena's injury?
Google is useless and overrated

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

OMG I forgot about that. Serena knows Sasha has eyes for Ana. More motivation for Serena to do her best.

I hate this matchup. Ana gives Serena no rhythm whatsoever. She always brings Serena's level down and its never the beatdown you expect when a player of Serena's calibre plays a player like Ana.

64 75

I hope Ana will show her best tennis and not let Serena walk over her. Chances are astronomical, but Serena has been loosing matches before, right?
Since we are guessing, I might as well guess big. Ana in 2.

Fun match-up..although if Serena plays a normal level, she should win. Let's go!

Always bet on black!

2 of my faves so I'll be happy and heartbroken at the same time whatever the result!

Serena was not at her best against Hantuchova but still won in 2. Unless the Gods play a dirty trick Serena should take this, but I'd love to see Ana go to 3 and make it tough.

We both know hot Australia would help Ana to make this match competitive. Maybe even would let Ana to win 1 set.

Serena is not a robot.

It will be on Rod Laver Arena night, the marquee match.

The heat and sun won´t be a factor.
