Wertheim's SF Predictions: Serena & Kim
Don't think this has been posted yet.
Does anyone know what Pam's picks are?!
SI.com: How do you see Thursday's women's semifinals?
Wertheim: I could see the Serena Williams-Justine Henin-Hardenne match playing out a lot like Serena's romp over AmŽlie Mauresmo Tuesday. Henin-Hardenne, like Mauresmo, has been known to get a bit jangly nerved on big occasions, and this is definitely a big occasion. The crowd will undoubtedly be on the Belgian's side, but this doesn't seem to matter much to the defending champ. We learned that Tuesday. What we also learned is that Serena is all business, and while Henin-Hardenne won their last match, in Charleston, there is a big difference between playing a final on a lazy spring Sunday in South Carolina and playing in a Grand Slam semi.
SI.com: What about Kim Clijsters vs. Nadia Petrova. Is an upset a possibility?
Wertheim: Not really. Petrova is a fine player who is a lot better than her ranking indicates. She was injured and lost her injury-protected ranking, so the fact that she entered the tournament outside the top 50 is deceptive. That said, Clijsters is a more complete player, a harder ballstriker and she knows the draw gods smiled on her. She has a real opportunity to win her first Grand Slam, and I still she'll take care of business Thursday and give us the anticipated final between the top two seeds.
