The serve was spot on, now all she needs to do is improve on those needless errors. Keep it up Serena and take the title!!!:D

If she can serve as well as she didp today, it should put some pressure on Jen's serve and make things mcuh easier on Serena. I hope we get to see the Serena/Jennifer matchup. (Sorry Ai, just dont think u can make it a classic match with Serena)

I'm very pleased with today's match. Of course the errors can go, but overall I was happy with her match. On to the next round.

Really good match from my girl! Patty wasn't even allowed to show up. :yeah:

C'mon Jennifer... although I'm sick of this matchup or you'd think EVERYBODY would, I still want it to happen!

:haha: @ the netheads... good luck cheering tomorrow and Tuesday, hopefully. :)

Sam Smith didnt think she played well, and thought Lindsay and Justine are playing better. :rolleyes:

Disappointing from Patty. :)

Yeah, some of the comments she makes are kinda dumb. I think she's quite intelligant though, her articles in ace are usually pretty good.

I thought Serena played really great today, and then Sam comes on and sez Serena is capable of much better tennis. Maybe, but she served amazing 2day, and her second serves look to be coming back to what they were :scared:

Didn't sam and barry have a bet - Sam said Jen, and Barry said Serena? 4 quid and a packet of munchies? Or was that some other players? :o

no it was them two. that annoyed me too. Jen has been less than spectacular and same is saying she's playing better than Serena. i think Sam dyed away her senses with that colour in her hair.

It was a very good serving day for Serena and although she started off sloppy with the errors she seemed to pick up her all-round game in the second set.

She looks to have an easy path to the final; neither of her likely QF opponents looks like a threat IMO. Her only problem might be winning a major final; that and probably better opposition from the other finalist, unless her name is Venus, tho.

A very improved performance today.

:haha: I think Sam's new hair-do suits her :tape:

Yeah, Sam said Jen was playing better from the baseline that Serena :rolleyes: when Jen has lost sets to two virtual unknowns!

Amen

she doesn´t need to release a fire ball in every point she really needs to chill a bit.

Congratz Serena :worship: :worship:

Sam Smith on who the pressure will be on (Serena vs Jennifer) "i think it'll be on Serena, she hasn't won a slam since Wimbledon 2003"

:rolleyes: does that sound like a sane person to you considering that Jennifer hasnt won a slam since the 2002 Aus Open? :p

I think Serena is able to play more. Pratically her serve saved her today, I mean, Patty had her bp.. and serena's serve was crucial..

Anyway, good performance Serena. But you need to get better to win this tourney! :bounce:

LOL. She tries to be clever making all these "intelligant" comments and using these cool words - but it's just bullshit most of the time :p

Also, on the Jen Serena thing, what was the score in their last match? :shrug: Sammy musta forgot about that.

I guess Sam thinks (and I agree) that Serena not winning a Grand Slam for over a year is more of a shock than Jen not winning one for 2 years because Serena is the better player and the one who we expected to dominate for many years

God, did I really just defend Sam Smith then?! :p

Yes, child. You did just defend a Sam Smith comment. And I understand your reasoning. Rena's put a good deal of pressure on herself to win Wimby 2004, and it backfired on her throughout that 2nd week. It isn't all that likely that she's all of a sudden immune to the nerves, two months later.

But the problem with Sam's comment is that, the last time these two met, Jen was the one to buckle and fold. If it was a Lindsay-Serena quarter, then Sam's comment would be right on the mark. But as it stands, it looks as if Sam knows little about Jen's under-pressure performances over the past 2 years.

By the way: I never assume to know what's going to happen when Serena and Jen meet. It's as close to a toss-up that you'll get in tennis nowadays.
