RIDICULOUS.

Serena was incredible today, as good as any beatdown from 02-03 or the 07 AO final.

She moved extremely well and cracked winners and aces seemingly at will...SO many winners.

Her FH looked fantastic, tons of pace, heavy ball, down the line, inside out or crosscourt she's full of confidence!

Hard work is paying off, hope she keeps this up.

the first 4 games were like a men's match. all about serve. And then Stosur's serve suddenly deserted her. lots of 2nd serves and double faults. w/out her serve Stosur's game is not so tough. But Serena was solid. good enough win.

good luck in the next round Serena!!

I loved the moonballs from Serena because she won everypoint when she did it because it pushed Sam 10 feet behind the baseline and the Serena hit an offensive shot on Sam's shorts balls afterward.

Venus+Serena#1fan
Aug 12th, 2008, 04:42 AM
I would say she did more than "just enough" today, by alot.

She did hit a few moonballs on her BH but very intelligently, they bought her time in the rally and allowed her to get into position. Very smart defending.

Poor Alize or Shaui...i love them both but watching their amtch after watching Serena...this could get Ugly and not in a good way. Alize v.s. Serena on clay was a different match.

Yeah the next round is up to Serena.

If she plays like today, they will both be totally crushed. Cornet is talented and fast but she'd be at Serena's mercy.

Her servie is def attackable and Serena's pace today wouldn't give her any time to set up for the big FH she likes.

Serena beat Cornet on clay in straights when Cornet was on fire, as was Serena.

Hardcourts are essentially Serena's parking lot.

Serena, if she plays Cornet, will win 6-3, 6-1

Alize jerks the ball on a hard court with her forehand, Clay gives her more time.

Serena should have no problem at all with Cornet because she is serving horribly. Serena will be all over those weak second serves.
