but it is to become a MM joke. Why not to fast forward to the final and save time and aggreviation to all of us? And while doing that, tell the girls in the top half of the draw to chill as well and chew on some Pova candies........... :wavey:

Ok, just wanted to get off my chest.

Every draw is a cake walk draw to Serena when she is playing to her true level , including draws that are packed with highest seeds.:shrug:




Those complainers can still hold some hope that Serena can lose her focus/ going crazy/ distracted by a hostile crowd then stumble to a shocking upset, to virtually anyone, including scrubs .;)

Petra Kvitova is top player and decent on clay , if you are not aware.

Errani is not a mug on clay....

It's just like Pironkova , who is very decent on clay but Serena had to play vs hardcourt mug

I don't understand. Serena has never been accused of receiving cakewalk draws. She gets one, and everyone freaks out. Sharapova has received cakewalk draws and made a mess of them every time. Sharapova actually does better with strong draws.

So really, bottom line - shut up and let's play tennis. As we saw, Serena's crap draw has become even more crap. Li/Clijsters then Stosur then Azarenka? Yeah, that fell apart too.

Tennis, please. Exit to the left.

Isn't that the benefit of being a top seed - to get a cakewalk draw? People are playing week in and week out just so they can get seeded high enough in the slams to avoid players that they cannot beat. The top four should beat everyone before the semi-finals. If they don't it's called an upset. Why is it an outrage when they get easy draws? They worked for it, they deserve it.

What about Vika's all easy till QFs. Aga's doesn't seem that easy because she's not that good.

You don't win 14 slams with 14 cakewalk draws. She would have handled every single kind of draw by now, and frankly I doubt she cares.

Serena fan, but this draw is becoming a joke more and more. The thing is all counter punchers were drawn together. she deserved one i guess because she had tough draws a lot of times. But it might be trouble cause her focus can waver with this kind of draws, hopefully she doesn't think about what some are thinking that it is a walking bye, cause that's when everything falls apart.

Serena still needs to win one match at a time. The "perceivable" cake draws are cool, but in reality, her next match is against a Grand Slam champ who is going to show up on Wednesday with every intention of making it to the semis.

I don't think she had enough matches under her belt because she wasn't interested in playing USO series this year. She played 1 match against Paszek. :shrug:

Oh, now I see you point.. sorry for misunderstanding. :)

You make a fair point.. Vika, ideally, should have played a few more hard court matches as a warm-up for the USO.

However, she is 26-1 this year on hardcourts and seems to have worked her way into this tournament.

I think she had prioritized doing well here over everything during the last month and having just had a long summer.. I think she decided it was best to rest to avoid burn-out.

The ladies that did best in the US Open series (Petra and Na) have already lost while Vika and Maria (who had no warm-up) are still in and looking strong. :)

Serena doesn't need cakewalk draws to win slams and she rarely gets them. In fact, having Vika, Petra and Maria on her side of the draw would have been easier for her because atleast she knows their games from the inside out. Players like radwanska/erani/vinci could probably trouble her more if she isn't patient.

Rolling-Thunder
Sep 3rd, 2012, 10:49 PM
All I care about is Serena lifting the trophy on Saturday. She has generally always had very tough draws compared to other players. Its about time she got a dream draw, where she can play straight-forward, clean, not too taxing, around an hour matches. Yes

People seem to forget that the players who challenged/beat her this year are on her side of the draw :lol: Makraova/Woz/Kerber/Radwanska while all her pigeons are on the other side.

GOd knows I don't like Serena, but come on. She's won 14 Slams, and some of them with pretty stiff opposition, even in the era people love to call the Golden era whatever. So she's bound to get some easier draws. People ought not to be pressed because their faves haven't been fortunate enough to land the same to snare their first Slam titles. Let them do it the hard way.

Oh, and does it matter what her draw looks like? :lol:

the last time draws mattered to serena was in 2007 when she was getting smacked by henin in quarterfinals. since henin's retirement there is not a draw which matters to serena. she owns them all.

for maria also tough draws are not a bad thing. she has been known to mess up easy draws quite often.

Who cares who she plays. yes she got a relatively easy draw but she had some trouble with 2 players that she shouldn't really. It was way too tight against MJMS and Makarova :shrug: she played like crap during part of those two matches. You never know what can happen and if the player reached that round clearly she did somethin right lol. Once again, who she faces is nobody's fault, you can't complain about that and it doesn't diminish the effort lol.

You are reaching too much. Serena leads both of these player by a dominating H2H 11-4, having beat Li the last 4 times and Sam the last 2 times this year ( last one was a beat down 6-1, 6-1 on Sam's favorite surface of clay. Just because they can sneak a few wins over Serena (while being defeated most of the times) doesn't mean they are not the underdogs while facing Serena, just like Vika and Maria.

underdogs? now just check the score of the Li Na matches . She even managed to bagel Serena and has always 3 sets or tight 2 sets matches.

Same story with Sam , apart from beating heavily Serena at USO 2011 she had a number of competitive matches.
