in this hot mess of a tournament only sharapova and serena are capable of wining a major title... sure venus is too, but she is injured, and she has a pretty fit serena in her draw...

i am so disapointed with the serbians, especially jelena...

Anyway, I hope that does happen tho. :worship:

I don't know if it'll be competitive though, but Maria might surprise us!

Would rather someone else in the final like..... well Maria it is then :tape:

Aren't you forgetting about Clijsters? Serena/Sharapova would be awesome, but I'd just as much prefer a Clijsters/Sharapova final.

me too. i'd love to see a clijsters vs. serena match.

and no i am not trying to jinx anyone, although i am not a fan of either of the two. that's just the plain truth. they are the only ones that have that "spirit of the past true champions" in them. after all the upsets so far, i have to say the willaims sisters and sharapova are the only ones who have the spirit of the multiple GS champions in them... hopefully clijsters is mature enough now, because in the first part of her career she was always "so close, but always too far"...

it would at least ensure we'll see appalling serving problems right through to the end of the tournament.

I guess that's building to be inevitable...only those two know how to win big thing and not choke in tense moments - don't see anyone taking them out before the final.

upsets are in the air, why dont you let Maria get through her match tonight first....After Oudin won today, the crowd will be electric rooting for the American...... Hope Maria doesnt get too rattled or that side of the draw will look. :tape:

This is reminicent of 2007 Venus/ Serena/ BELGIAN were all on one side of the draw and the otherside FELL apart... with only KUZNETSOVA left :tape:

Sharapova is going to fall apart in the late stages of the slam.

With the US Open format , Friday - semis Saturday - final , I don“t think the current Pova can do too much damage in the Final

I agree, sort of. Sharapova would need a quick SF to have a good chance at someone like Serena. The Friday final is at night though, so there's more time to recover.

SHe went three (rather lopsided) sets with Amelie and totally dismissed Justine though with this format. She was in perhaps better shape then.

even though i don't like her, i have to acknowledge what she is capable of. i will not underestimate her should this matchup take place. Go Serena!

Sorry, but Maria will be destroyed by the first good stable player she plays (which will be in the final :tape:) Currently she is struggling against a 17 y/o girl ranked outside top 300 :tape: (struggling as in most of their games have gone to duece)

I did not say it was a conspiracy, so don't put words in my mouth.

I still think there is a big question mark over Maria. I think she'll struggle against an opponent that can exert any kind of pressure on her.

Serena will eat Sharapova's second serves for lunch should they meet.

ZOMG! Noooooooo! Maria is struggling big time, 6-2, 5-1! That's ridiculous that she would lose 3 games, Maria is finished, she should retire :bigcry:

Kuznetsova won a slam this year, she has won the USO before, she is more than capable of making the final and winning it.

Sharapova hasn't really been tested yet...how are u so sure she will get past Oudin?

I hope Maria will meet Venus in the Finals. That will be a more refreshing one.

Aren't you forgetting about Clijsters? Serena/Sharapova would be awesome, but I'd just as much prefer a Clijsters/Sharapova final.
So Clijsters can get blown off the court like Henin did in 2006???

Give me a break. I LOVE Kim Clijsters, in fact, she is my third favorite player in the world. But a Serena/Sharapova final would be much more entertaining considering the fact that Maria has something to prove and Serena is going for slams as always. Plus, I don't think Kim could defend and split her way through two Williams sisters on this fast surface.

So IF I had to bet....Serena/Maria in the final. :worship:

Sharapova's gotta get tested somewhere if she expect to be competitive in the final no matter WHO she plays.

I thought it would be ED, but... :shrug:

Without that testing, I have a feeling, she's gonna get shell-shocked if she meets with Serena or Venus in the final.

Serena will eat Sharapova's second serves for lunch should they meet.

her second serve is averaging 92 mph, serena's is averaging 85 mph so far. people need to realize that when maria's second serve is going in, its pretty damn good most of the time.

No offense to the OP, and I don't want to get in the way of the Williams Sisters fans and Maria fans cat fight (seriously most of you need to grow up, the act is old), but don't you think today showed you that we need to chill on predictions like these? Just let it play out.

Oudin should be a serious test if she's in shape. To be honest, Oudin scares me more than if it were Dementieva for this upcoming 3rd round.

Petrova will have a maniacal mentality wanting to prove she is not maria's bitch. Maria will need to turn it up, and not take anything for granted if she wins the third round and meets Petrova.
