The stats look good, more winners than errors, more aces than DF's. Serena just had the bit extra and closed out the matches comfortably . Well done eleni and Serena.

damn, how weak is the WTA :rolleyes: ??!!?

Serena spends almost a whole year without playing and can still trash 99.99% of the field...

no wonder if Martina Nav were to make a comeback, she would still rank in the top 40... playing only 10 tournies/year... :rolleyes:

Look at the serve....yeah, she got broken three-times, but her serve looks SO good. Can always bank on it, imo.

Serena is that good, no doubt, but the tour is also very weak... it has to be a combination of both factors... more: if Hingis or Graf return, they will be top 20, and a healthy Seles would also be top 20 even @ 35yo...*

The scary thing is that I thought that she played like shyt. She looked very rusty. Lots of shanks when she wasn't going for a winner. When she gets back into her grove, Justine will have no chance. :bounce:

Serena will lose the final. Her serve is all that is left of her champions game. She is heavy. She is slow. Her footwork is very poor. Today match was very fitting to the description that unforgettable Richard Krajicek once gave to women's tour game back in mid-90s.

She made the final only courtesy of very weak draw not having to face a single Top 20 player on her way to the final. She will get her clock cleaned on Saturday.

She is so out of form. When I turned on TV, they showed someone's back, and I thought - what is this fat old woman with obvious signs of cellulite and tasteless dress which only makes her look even bigger than she is ( as if she is not big enough ) is doing on court.. Then I realised it was Serena..

Some people just can't help themselves...their hatred of V&S just blinds their good sense...

you guys had to know that Rena coming back in good form was going to get people in a tizzy :lol:
