Well Serena has a first round Bye, and in the second round she will face either Michaella Krajicek of the Netherlands or a qualifier.

She should get to the quarters AT LEAST. I expect to see her at the SF/F or win it though. Krajicek should be easy, hopefully. She's beaten Misa like 2 times this year in straights, right?

Let's get some revenge on Svetlana in the semifinals. :) Vaidisova who has been out, and Krajicek should not trouble you. Time to show everyone what being a Williams is all about.

Well surprisingly Serena's first round opponent will be a qualifier who defeated the Dutch talent Krajicek in a thrilling three set match. Her name is Tatiana Perebiynis and she is from Ukraine. I don't know much about her, but I do know that she has a great defense, because on Real Life on the WTA Tour I saw a little interview with Perebiynis and she talked about how important fitness is nowadays since the Williams sisters introduced severe power and athletic moves to the tour. She said she works hard on her fitness because she is a more defensive player. Well Serena must be very focused on this match cause her opponent has good defense , so that means Serena must try to get a lot of first serves in, not really with power just getting them in. I would advise to serve into the body, and the second serve must fly away from the opponent with a slice or topspin. Their match is scheduled for Thursday. Good luck Serena!!!

Well Serena moved into the quarterfinals today and as expected her quarterfinal opponent will be Nicole Vaidisova. This opponent is familiar with Serena, she gave a tough fight at the Australian Open during the semi-final encounter and Serena also received a quite some battle during the Miami quarterfinal match. Vaidisova is known for her strong groundies and strong first serve. Especially her backhand down the line is a big weapon. Serena must not underestimate this opponent who is playing her first match since the heartbreaking loss against Peer during the USOPEN. Vaidisova is also experienced with this court reaching the semi's once before and she beated for example the then number 1 seed Mauresmo. She is a fighter who never gives up and Serena also once said that Vaidisova reminded her of herself which means always fighting. Serena needs her big first serve to receive free points, and she must play offensive all the time. Good luck Serena!!!

hmmm hopefully she can win this in 2 sets.....she has the motivation and i think its making her think too much on court....its the same thing i think was happening to venus this year...serena needs another tournament run like this to get her confidence back to the level it was at during the first couple months of the season....hopefully moving past vaidisova will give her some added confidence

Well Serena had a tough match in the quarterfinals but she came through. Next up is Svetlana Kuznetsova. Serena played her last week in Stuttgart and sufferend a big loss. She didn't play well then and all of her shots were flying every where and she made numberous of times the wrong shot selection. Kuznetsova on the other hand had a on-serving day and finished the points quickly adding a lot of spin on both forehand and backhand. Serena really really really needs her first serve to get in a lot of times, and she shouldn't be affraid to take out the balls in the air. Good luck Serena!!!

Well Serena won her semifinal match, her next opponent will be Elena Dementieva. Elena has played very solid during this week. And what is even surprising is that her first serve has improved a lot. She is hitting it harder and what really is impressive which a lot of people were able to see is the combination of amazing footwork combined with some fierce and powerfull groundstrokes. Serena really really really needs her big first serve to gain the points quickly and she has to take her opportunities on the second serves. Good luck Serena!!!
