Serena is just that little more erratic since the US Open, so I think a solid and agressive Kim could do the trick

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Exclamation

Serena will win.

This same situation happened to Lindsay Davenport at the 2001 Pilot Pen tournament when she was supposed to play Kim and Kim withdrew with a thigh injury. Venus had to play two matches the day before the final because of rain. That meant Lindsay was rested (having not played since that Wednedsay) and was favored to win.

End result?:

Venus won in two sets. That is why Serena has a better chance at winning because she is more match ready that Kim, like Venus was against Lindsay.

I'd have to go with Serena, Although Serena needs to watch out for Kims serve and work on her own first serve. I hope its an exicting match!

I agree that Serena's still shaking off the rust; but she still managed to gut it out against Cappy. Hard to say what Kim can do at the moment, given she's not been tested at all this tourney. She's had a good indoor season, tho'

I'm giving a slight edge to Kim (in three) but more than anything, I hope to see another really good match.

I do hope both players have a good time and if we get a good match out of it then lucky us.

I also hope the fans will treat each other well.

Best wishes to Kim and Serena

You want reality, or is this basically a cheering thread?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I think KIM has a ability to beat SERENA.

KIM is ONLY lost 5 Games on this tournament

1st Round def RUBIN 6-1 6-1

QF Round def HENIN 6-1 6-2

SF Round def VENUS 5-0 ret

KIM has a great tournament so far?

My prediction : KIM def SERENA 6-2 1-6 6-4

Go KIMMY

Serena

Of course, Kim could "beat" Serena the way she "beat" Venus yesterday. But otherwise...

Serena 62 62
