Esh.

I'm a Serena supporter, but unless she can keep the unforced errors down, the winners up, and the serve percentage up, I'm liking Mary's chances. Regardless, I say it'll go three sets, Serena winning.

Projected score:

S.Williams def. M.Pierce; 6-3, 2-6, 6-2

Somethin' like that. ;)

mary seems to be playing well, but Serena will be too strong. Also didn't Serena have this exact same draw last year?

Mary is looking very dangerous at this point.

I just hope Serena is ready.

Hmmm I think that Mary might be able to come out and blast with Serena for a set, but I don't think she can go the distance. I will say Serena in 3; 4-6 6-4 6-2

This poll is a bit comical. If someone can name a time in the last 4-5 years that Williams has lost before the Quarterfinals for any tournament (except giving way for sister) I will change my opinion. Williams in two easy sets.

serena lost for the first time evr agaisnt jidkhova last year in rd 1
mary/serena match up is an intriguing one, both have won on clay and know how to play on this surface. Both pretty powerul off both wings but serena sure can move better than mary. Mary plays the kind of game serena relishes, pace! serena in two easy sets.

I'm joking. Sarina in two. Pearce is obese. I wouldn't bet on her except against powder puff players (#'s 11 on).

Mary had 25 winner and only 6 unforced errors and won the first ten games of her match today. However, Serena Williams is 100 times the player Daniilidou is (no offense). I really would like to see some Hilton Head 2000 form from Mary (which really is possible) but no one fights like Serena. Too bad I wont see this match...

I think Serena will win unless she plays like she did in her last two matches in Miami.

I hope Mary can pull the upset though.

Mary seems to be defeating the players she is supposed to, but Serena, well, that will be an uphill battle for Mary, clay or not.

Serena in two.

It wasn't supposed to be. '95 Pearce should have nicknamed "the bod", but the girl is flabby these days.

it's really really tough.

whenever someone is on hot form and runs into serena, it seems like either they don't play as well or serena just really steps it up (impossible to tell since usually we don't see these matches).

pierce is in devastating form, but she was as well at the us open, the olympics, and at indian wells. IF she is going to get a big win, these conditions are perfect for her. clay, early round, playing an opponent on her worst surface EARLY in the clay season.

i dunno.
i like pierce in 3. but serena has enough game to win in straights. pierce has to get out of 1 close set.

I think Serena will win :)

As much as I like mary I can't see her beating Serena

They played in Amelia Island Round of 32 last year and Serena won 6-3 6-1 in what was her 2nd event in like 18 months.

So I can't see the trend turning around much :sad:

Pearce's movement is her liability, she is not good on the run and frequently nets or bounces balls into the net when even slightly extended, when she gets set she can hit a hard shot. Her strokes are technically very good, but her suspect movement will always be a liability against the world's best like Sarina.

just like you had no idea in your statement that serena hadn't lost early in tournament for 5 years you are also wrong in calling mary obese becasue she has gotten back into much better shape. she isn't 22 anymore but with all the injuries she's suffered she has done really well to get back to where she has.

Mary could put some pressure, she is playing very well, but I predict Serena to win it even if she is in a bad day.

I have not been following Mary closely this year so far, but based on what I've heard, I wouldn't say she was in with much of a chance. She gave Maria a few problems at (*was it IW or Miami?!) so maybe she can do the same to Serena, possibly even to beat her. But my Vbet would go on Serena.

I'm going with Maam - she's relaxed, enjoying her tennis and hitting winners at will. Serena will be a big step up from what Maam has played against at this tournament so far but her stats speak for themselves - awesome. Go Maam!!!

Serena SHOULD win, but her form the past few weeks has been suspect. Mary has been on fire thus far at Amelia Island, but against much weaker opponents. The first set is much more important for Mary than for Serena. If Mary wins the first set she'll win. If she doesn't, I can't see her pulling out a 3-setter against Serena J. Williams.

Yep. Serena's record is very impressive over the last five years.

I do think this is the only interesting match in the line up today. Pierce's play has surprised me over the last few weeks, so I'm interested to see how she plays against Serena.

Serena is not in very good form. I also think physically she is not all there. Shoulder and knee bothering her. So Mary does have a good chance at defeating her. Serena just needs to lose a little weight and get healthy. :cool:

:yeah: I can't say anymore because you said it all! Well, actually i'll add this - Serena in three. :)

Apr 7th, 2005, 09:46 PM
I say Serena in 2 if she sticks to her strategyand keeps this attitude towards clay all season:

"You have to change your mind-set when you play on clay," Williams said. "I've learned the hard way, if you hit the ball really hard, you'll go home early. You have to lift the ball more and try to get a lot of balls in play instead of going for so many winners. But I love the clay. I love sliding and moving on it."

If not Serena in 3: 3-6 6-2 6-4
