We'll see. Not underestimating Flavia at home, she's the sort of player who could REALLY run away with the occasion.

Not underestimating Flavia. She'll have huge crowd support and she seems really confident here. Still expect Serena to come through though.

So no tanking huh?

Good luck, Serena! :scared: If she wants to win it, she can do it in 2. Flavia will definitely have the crowd support but whatever.

I think serena based on the fact that Flavia has played all her matches on pritangelli, and this one is sure to go to centre court its a different court different atmosphere she might get nervous, I would love for flavia to win the whole tournament though.

This is not going to be easy. Flavia + home crowd ... She is going to be pumped up so Rena better be prepared for it.

Hopefully She'll do it in 2

People here seems to forget how Flavia has always made it close with Serena in all her previous meetings :shrug: i still think Serena will take it in 2, maybe 3 if Flavia can start with no pressure and playing like she did today (hoepfully improving her serve too).

If Serena doesn't underestimate Flavia then she won't have any problems. 6-4, 6-3 to Rena.

Very exciting match up between two of the veterans on the tour. Whoever wins the second set will most likely win the match

:lol: This is going to be a tough match up. I will say that it all depends on what Serena does though. You can't play lazy tennis against someone like Pennetta who has a decent serve and can keep the ball in play.

My prediction:

GOATRena- Two easy sets Rena
30%Rena-Three tough sets Rena
ErrorRena-Three tough sets Rena or Flavia
TankRena-Two sets Flavia

Flavia plays Serena tough, so if Serena isnt ready this could be a tough match. But we could also see the rise of Tankrena, she has had three matches on "real clay" so she and her team may feel prepared.

Good idea ! I always have to go to slow wta website for h2h.
Anyway I'm looking forward to this, it's gonna be a crazy atmosphere on Centre Court, Italians are the most supportive people of their own players
, even when they're cruising like Flavia was in her previous round.

Another boring tennis match. Serena will win this in straight sets.

I think so. I don´t have any idea of Penetta´s recent form. But if Serena shows up she will win this.

Serena is clearly in some kind of pain for sure this will impact her game as her strokes and serve is not so strong and fast now. I know she knows her body best but damn I wish she would withdraw, RG is soooo much more important.

Justin SW

SERENA IS FINNNEEEE GUYZZ!!!

Q: What was problem at the at the end?
WILLIAMS: My tape was so tight that I gave myself when nobody was looking in the locker ….. a couple of extra heel locks and ……. the ankle was too tight and I wanted to loosen the tape and so I called the trainer to retape…….it was too tight.
Q: You played on the Pietrangeli court. Did you like it?
WILLIAMS: I've been here a long time and I've played on that court and I've had memorable matches on that court and it reminded me when I was sure young and I have really good memories.
Q: How do you feel 10 days before the Roland Garros?
WILLIAMS: Is it only 10 days? I'm getting nervous. I feel good and I have had a lot of practice on clay and today I was running so much and I was ready to play and feeling good. I wasn't tired at all. I feel good.

I hope Flavia can get a set, she will have a superb Italian crowd behind her. It would be great if Flavia could win the crowd would go wild. By the way the centre court in Rome has to be one of the best in the world so close to the court a proper ampitheatre, typically Italian. Go Flavia!

Serena in two with the loud crowd on Flavia's side. The loud crowd has never stopped her before...Infact I think she relishes it.

Serena will win in two sets, but it's gonna be a tight two sets. She can't underestimate Flavia, but I don't think she believes she will beat Serena.

This is not going to be easy. Flavia + home crowd ... She is going to be pumped up so Rena better be prepared for it.

Hopefully She'll do it in 2

I remember French Open 2002 - Amelie + home crowd. Serena won 61 61, I think. Flavia is no Amelie which is not saying much knowing how Amelie melted in Paris. I don't think Serena wants to surrender her clay court streak not yet. At least, not to Flavia.

I'm laughing at you Gdsimmons because I was thinking the same thing. :lol: But you know this could be the one time that she really gives Serena a run for her money. I just think Serena had better be prepared because she's gonna come after her like a bat outta hell. :lol:
