Serena is just that little more erratic since the US Open, so I think a solid and agressive Kim could do the trick

Serena will win.

This same situation happened to Lindsay Davenport at the 2001 Pilot Pen tournament when she was supposed to play Kim and Kim withdrew with a thigh injury. Venus had to play two matches the day before the final because of rain. That meant Lindsay was rested (having not played since that Wednedsay) and was favored to win.

End result?:

Venus won in two sets. That is why Serena has a better chance at winning because she is more match ready that Kim, like Venus was against Lindsay.

I picked Kim in 3, but i know its wishful thinking.

I'd have to go with Serena, Although Serena needs to watch out for Kims serve and work on her own first serve. I hope its an exicting match!

serena 6-3 6-3

I agree that Serena's still shaking off the rust; but she still managed to gut it out against Cappy. Hard to say what Kim can do at the moment, given she's not been tested at all this tourney. She's had a good indoor season, tho'

I'm giving a slight edge to Kim (in three) but more than anything, I hope to see another really good match. :)

I do hope both players have a good time and if we get a good match out of it then lucky us.

I also hope the fans will treat each other well.

Best wishes to Kim and Serena

You want reality, or is this basically a cheering thread?

I think KIM has a ability to beat SERENA.

KIM is ONLY lost 5 Games on this tournament

1st Round def RUBIN 6-1 6-1

QF Round def HENIN 6-1 6-2

SF Round def VENUS 5-0 ret

KIM has a great tournament so far?

My prediction : KIM def SERENA 6-2 1-6 6-4

Go KIMMY :bounce:

Of course, Kim could "beat" Serena the way she "beat" Venus yesterday. But otherwise...

Serena 62 62

First of all, that was 6-1, 6-2. Secondly, I think Clijsters has a good chance to win, too. Her problem in big matches seems to be that she'll get off to a good start -- win the first set easily -- and then let the other player back in. I think that the first set tonight will be key. If Clijsters wins the first set, don't be surprised if she loses the match. If she loses the first set, but wins the second, then I think that will bode much better for her.
Also watch Williams. If she's showing any ill effects of her long match yesterday, I think that Clijsters will be able to take advantage. If not, then I think she has a much better shot of winning the title. If they're both at their best, I think that Williams will come out on top, but if she's tired or has a let down, then I think Clijsters will take it. If it comes down to a tight battle in the third, then I give Williams the edge again, because I don't know that Clijsters has that killer instinct yet. She seems much more relaxed, more "If I lose, I lose," than Williams does, and if it's tight, then that could be her downfall.
