I think only Kvitova playing at a pretty high level could have potentially stopped her.

I think Vika can do it if Serena doesn't hit a absolutely perfect serving day. She was pretty close three weeks ago, she was just way too cautious in the first set and Serena served a bit too perfect but both sets were rather close.

If she can force Serena into rallies she has a chance, there were some absolutely insane rallies against Kerber today.

If she serves fifteen-twenty aces there's nothing Azarenka can do but if she has less than ten who knows what might happen?
Thanks for the answers.

So, it seems you're not believing too much in Clijsters. You never know with her. She goes from stellar to dreadful frommmatch to match. I'll see what she does today against Sharapova. I'm rooting for the Russian, but I'm ok with Kim as long as she plays near her best. I don't remember if she ever won an Olympic medal?

As for Azarenka, she has the game to beat Serena. But for some reason she always fail, even when she has her in the cables. As DownInAHole said, maybe she'll build from her experience on grass against her.

Anyhow, I don't like Serena but she deserves the Gold. She's just the best player out there. That being said, I'll cheer for her opponents as usual
