No Contest.. Serena In A Rout

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Sir Richard Williams

I would like Conchita win, but i think Serena will win.

But Conchi can make a great match against her, Conchi has the perfect game to put in trouble Serena. Only if she plays good!!!

Come on Conchi!!!!!!!!!!! We love u!!!

ANYWAY, CONCHI RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also think Serena will win. But please respect Conchita. She's 31, she's already done her tournament with her fine victories over two top-ten players and she won this tournament 4 TIMES before. So she has nothing left to prove.

Serena leads the H2H 4-0, 2-0 on clay. She beat Conchi at this very tournament in '98 6-2 6-2.

She beat her at Charleston this year, 6-2 6-2.

Serena should win this in straights.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

looking at their head 2 heads IT IS CLEAR THAT SERENA WILL CRUSH MARTINEZ IN STRAIGHT SETS!!..

Look at what Serena has done to her on clay...

you people who voted for Conchita...all I need to say is get REAL!

Bringing the FYR! GO Dokic, Pierce, Myskina, Mirza, Vaidisova, Dementieva, and Davenport!

Serena would teach Conchita some clay court lessons.

"When I was four years old, we moved from England to USA, when my mother found out that I won't be KING!" -- Bob Hope--

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Conchi has a chance if...

A> Serena plays like she against Koukalova
B> Its windy
C> If Serena gets frustrated with herself.

But I voted for Serena, but Conchi has a very small chance, but not a huge one.
