No but there is no way that she'll be going down love and love.

No. She can push Serena, but I'd say she would lost 3-6 3-6

Of course she can win, but I hope she doesnt ;)

Serena will win 6-1, 6-3

I think it'll go three sets, with Serena winning handily in the third.....

Well as gracefully arrogant as Williams fans are, you can be sure that Serena is well aware of the number of upsets Sugiyama has delt in the last year alone. Ai doesn't beat herself, so Serena has to be playing well.

If Serena plays well: 6-2 6-3
If Serena plays average: 4-6 6-2 6-2
If Serena plays poorly: 3-6 7-6 3-6

hmmm... have we not learned from the Schett post yesterday... *tsk, tsk* :)

You cannot try to compare Schett to Sugiyama. Schett is counting her lucky stars that she beat a top 30 player. Sugiyama consistently beats top 10 players.

Five Zero's when u speak of Willaims fans and arrogance are you being sarcastic and facitious because u just mocked yourself and it's Hingis fanbase.

Scett and Sugiyama are different players..and so is SERENA and the players that Ai upset this year. Idiot. lmao

Hingis fans used to be so arrogant when Hingis won everything(MINUS RG) in 1997. The lot of u also remained that way until her retirement.

:wavey: Dawn Marie... I had to bite the urge and click on 'view post' since I have a certain somebody on ignore. it was stupid, just as I thought.

Look, did I say Schett and Sugiyama were the same person? Um, hell no. You've earned your short bus pass for the day... please hop aboard.

My point was that all these people, hoping, wishing, predicting seeds falling by unlikely ass-kickers is what gets people in hot water. Serena is the #1 player in the world. I don't hold anything against the starter of this thread because it's a good question and I haven't seen them play one another... it's just the people with nothing going on in their lives who are so sure the top seeds will fall.

See, I didn't want to say all of that because my point was made in the one sentence I posted earlier but since some people are slower than molasses in winter, I thought I'd elaborate.

Yes she could beat Serena on the right day - it's not very likely on any given occasion (eg - tomorrow!) though. Sugiyama is a very clever player so she can give anyone a hard time if they give her any room to do so.

Can Anika beat Tiger in a PGA major? :rolleyes:
Does that make Serena a man? And yes Ai can't beat Serena. I don't know if she will win but I will be watching and cheering for her.

Hi Cariosity. Yeah I know who u mean when u talk of the ignore list.

U would think the idot is the greatest Ai fan that ever lived.

Ai has chance but certainly not this year.:devil:

she can, but i dont think she will. she'd need to play out of her mind. plus, the clay hurts her game maybe more than serena's??? not trying to start anything here abt being unfair, but her volleys will be less potent on the dirt.

if sugiyama plays good and serena plays good, then ai will win

if sugiyama plays crap and serena plays good, then ai will win

i haven't seen Ai play on clay but i think if she plays well she will have a chance. i still think this is an iffy match for serena, if serena can win this then i don't think she'll have a problem until henin in the semis. but Ai has a chance.

May 31st, 2003, 10:03 AM
well the thing with ai is that she always attacks and takes the ball early... this could certainly trouble serena if she is not on her guard...

irma
May 31st, 2003, 10:07 AM
everything is possible but no I think serena will win 6:2 6:2 or somewhere around that except when it starts to rain for days. that would put ai's chances up.

schris
May 31st, 2003, 10:59 AM
yes she can :)

:rolleyes: at some Willams fans here.
Noone in this thread said Ai will surely win. In fact pre much everyone has said she has a chance but probably won't win and I think that's a very fair analysis. Some W fans just can't accept the sisters challenged by a player even on paper.
As an Ai fan, I definitely hope she will kick Serena's butt. That would be huge news here, but I doubt it will happen.
Go Ai show Serena what you got!!!

GoGoGone, what's with the - :rolleyes: at the Williams fans...??? Anyone with an "ounce" of reading comprehension knows that the Williams fans have only "proffered" their predictions of the outcome as everyone else did. Most even said that Ai has a chance, and the others were simply just being funny by suggesting, she has no chance.

As an Ai fan, and you wanting Ai to "kick" Serena's butt, so do the Williams fans want the same for their fav. However now, I want Serena to "stomp" Ai's ass...!!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Who knows with Ai, if Serena is OFF, and Ai is ON then yes, but if Serena plays 75% percent of her capability then I would expect Ai to lose.

Bezz
May 31st, 2003, 01:39 PM
she might give serena her first mini test, and by that i mean serena lose more than 3 games in a set, who knows she might be lucky and take a set, but realistically serena will win easily, i reckon 6-3 6-2.

the last time they played was in 2000, and Serena is about 10 times better nowadays. And in 2000 Sugiyama only won 3 games, Loosing 6-3 6-0 to Serena. I say 3 games is her limit again. Hell if Serena plays like she did against Shett, that type of play can get her 2 more bagles. If she picks it up, Ai could be gone even quicker.

But they've only played twice Serena winning in straights both times. And they only hard set was a 7-5 and that was back in 1998 :rolleyes:

I don't know. This seems like a scary matchup, mainly b/c serena might not be focused after winning her last match so easily. Ai is always dangerous and will scrap to the end.

Dawn Marie
May 31st, 2003, 07:42 PM
Serena is focused. She is after a grandslam!

Yes Ai can beat Serena but not tommorow because i think Clay isn't her fave surface .
