:oh:
Serena's upcoming opponents are Ivanovic, Kerber/Errani/Vinci/Radwanska and then likely Sharapova or Azarenka.
She's in amazing form. This has all the makings of a massacre.

Sam has a horrible record against people in her own half. I don't see how she'll make the final.

If she gets Kerber, more than 8. If not, less.

stosur will lose to Azarenka by the way.
If Kerber get through, Serena may lose to Kerber again.
I bet Vika VS Kerber in Final

Ivanovic always plays her tough, regardless of form.

More than 8. Serena hasn't looked that great but I think she'll get through strongly to the title.

Azarenka and Radwanska on HC will be tough matches. Ivanovic will win her fair share of games as well.

Ivanovic nearly got knocked out by Sloane Stephens. Serena's won the last 20 games straight. I respect the other players in the draw but the gulf in ability and form is just too much this time around.

How can you say that with a straight face. :lol:

4 games to Ivanovic.
3 games to Radwanska.
6 games to Azarenka/Sharapova.

Because despite her form, Ivanovic always plays Serena close (Dubai 2008, USO last year). Serena always tries to breakdown Ivanovic's forehand first before attacking the BH and the matches always end up being closer than they should.

To be honest, Serena never lost more then 4 games in one set against Ivanović and Ivanović has never ever played against "this" Serena.

How soon people forget..everyone gifted the title to Serena last year and what happened? Sharapova and Azarenka are playing just as dominating tennis and on hard courts, Serena's serve is not the unstoppable weapon it was in England. Plus didn't she lose 3 weeks ago on hard courts to Kerber?

You're right, apart from the Sharapova and Azarenka part. But...Serena's overall form is better than last year, Kerber is not automatically guaranteed a place in the semis, and even if she was Serena seldom loses consecutive matches to the same player.

Co-sign. In addition, Sharapova has been breadsticked by Serena on every surface, so I don't see how she can be taken seriously as a threat. Azarenka's year has been crap since Indian Wells. She's not dominating anything. Aaaand the last time they played on a hardcourt it was heartbreak for Azarenka.

Interesting question but ridiculous poll options. Honestly.. :rolleyes:

Obviously less than 8 is a possibility but that is stupid.

Ivanovic herself is probably going to win 8.

I'd say 13-15.

Yes,Sharapova and Azarenka definitely have the ability to beat Serena if they play their best but unfortunately,they just don't believe they can win anymore.

Jinx thread. Serena is going to play her QF match. Who can say she is guarantee going to play the next 3 matches? Stupid question.




It's appeared like Serena's haters set bait threads then bump them up later to laugh at their own prematurity as if those were made by Serena 's fans when/ if Serena happens to lose. Please close this thread.

neither Ivanovic nor Errani/Vinci can beat Serena even on a off-day....

odds on Serena will be 1,03 and her opponents 17-24

I was not speaking to Kerber beating her this week specifically. I was speaking to the fact that everyone is handing this tournament to Serena and it is not warranted.

Azarenka on the hard courts is not afraid of Serena. And she DOES believe she can "win anymore".

You people better hope Serena wins because if she doesn't i'm gonna call all of you out.

Dude, Vika hasn't even taken a set off Serena since the 2010 Australian Open. Serena's beaten her three times already this year. You need to be more realistic in your optimism. I don't care if she isn't afraid of Serena. It's irrelevant because the odds are already stacked against her so heavily.

Silly post.



Most Serena's fans have been cautious about her potential winning. There have been more non-Serena's fans consider this US Open is already in her pocket than Serena's fans do, including the OP. Serena is the favorite at this Slam. Her odds is better than any single one player's of the rest, but not better against the whole field.

Against Ivanovic + Errani - 6.
Vikaria might take 5 in the final.
So that makes it 11.

Dude chill out. 100% of these hard-court matches Serena played against Victoria was before she hit her prime -- like somebody said, Serena is always a lock to win slams outside of grass and she always flops so if I were you I'd wait for the END of the event.

Additionally, like another poster said, Victoria is and would be more confident playing Serena on hard-courts than anywhere else -- that's where she has the most wins, that's where her game takes it's full dimension etc... and the rest.

Last of all, streaks always have an end -- it's just a matter of when so just keep bragging there's always a moment where it will fall and you'll just look pretty dumb to say the least.

ALWAYS flops? I can remember the Stosur match last year. That's it. Serena hasn't been playing this well in years.

LOL, you mean all of ONE win. 3 years ago. She should be more confident than on other surfaces but it doesn't improve her chances of winning very much :shrug:

So your last resort is hoping that statistically Serena has to lose sometime. :lol:

Look, Serena isn't one of my favourites but it's clear that she's head and shoulders above the rest of the draw right now. It's a joke at this point. That's why I made this thread.

You're allergic to the Australian Open this year right ? Weirdly she was winning as few games as she's lost in this very US Open but no one ever seems to touch that major somehow. :lol: What about Miami the '5th slam' tournament she's won numerous times when she was supposed to be the one to put an end to Victoria's streak ? So yes it's "always".

LOL, you mean all of ONE win. 3 years ago. She should be more confident than on other surfaces but it doesn't improve her chances of winning very much :shrug:

If by definition she's more confident on hard then it does improve her chances of winning since she would theoretically be playing better on this particular surface than another hence increasing her chances of winning.

What are the probabilities that Serena wins against Victoria until she retires ?

As good as you are to say Serena is 100% to win all the time against them -- you're using statistics to say that just like me then I'm also good to say the inverse.

The inverse has as a strong probability of happening as your irrefutable predictions because people like you forget that every match is a new match and a possibility to employ new tactics, to come with different mindset/mentality etc. -- to bring you the win.

In athlete's world, H2h means nothing and the outcome of future matches aren't forcefully the direct consequences of past ones. Players don't even remember these kinds of foolishness (ask Serena whom she has defeated or who has defeated her, ask her about H2h, she knows nothing about these) -- otherwise it makes no sense even playing them since the outcome is already decided, huh ? :rolleyes:

Serena isn't Federer where Roddick or Sördeling just didn't have a single solution against the vast vast arsenal of the Swiss' game and factually, they respectively ended their series of defeat against him, at 13 for Söderling and 18-19 for Roddick I think but doesn't matter and I'm not wrong.

Serena imposes a psychological battle these girls simply just have to win because her game is as empty and one-dimensional as pretty much all the Robson's and other slow-mediocre hard-hitters of the regular tour.

Serena-Sharapova or vs. others is very different to Federer-Roddick though. Federer isn't scary,he doesn't intimidate people,Serena does. She genuinely looks like she hates her opponent and wants to take them out back and belt them up particularly when playing top players

I'd say 2 max. Unless she faces Vinci.

It's going to be Ana, Sara and Maria/Vika. I think bagels are a possibility with Sara (already got golden setted this year on a faster surface), Ana (can completely meltdown if things aren't going well) and Maria (Serena's already come close to dishing a bagel here).
