hmm, I don't think that's correct. You can't multiply the probabilities in this case because by doing so you'd be taking order in consideration and you shouldn't do that in this case. For example, Justine meeting Ivanovic, Jankovic and Serean in 3 straight GS QF's would be a different event than her meeting Jankovic, Ivanovic and Serena (in that order).

According to my calculation, the probability is 1/20. There are 20 ways in which Justine can meet 4 players in 3 GS QF's without taking order in consideration (for example, the two events above would be defined in this case as a single event), (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combinatorics#Combination_with_repetition )
and Justine meeting Serena/Serena/Serena is one way. So it'd be 1/20. Ofcourse that is assuming the 4 seeds stay the same across the GS.

OK, not willing to turn this into a probability thread, but whatever. :lol: :wavey:

yes but justine will have the "the crowd?so what!" attitude, the fact she's beaten serena at the same stage twice this yr plus match point on hardcourt (6:0 miami!!),and who knows what form serena will be in-justines just beaten probably her biggest threat for the title in straight sets!

That's good, cuz I suck at math! Even if it were 1/20...that's still a low 5% chance of this happening. I just feel like the last 3 slam draws have looked *generally* similar, with a few salient repeat matchups.

no, to explain with your example
* justine vs. jelena - ana - serena at GS-QF (in this order) : 1/64
* justine vs. ana - jelena - serena at GS-QF (in this order) : 1/64
* justine vs. serena - serena - serena at GS-QF (there is only 1 serena ;) ) : 1/64

you could write down all the combinations (A,B,C,D), AAA, ABA, AAB, ...
1/4^3 = 1/64 that you will have CCC(erena)

Justine just mentioned last week that her win against Serena has drained her emotionally...

Now is the time i guess to see if Justine had gotten over the "Serena" factor in a non-clay event.

She almost beat her in Miami, She beat her in Wimbledon and Serena was injured.

In this USO is the chance for my Justine to finally prove to herself that she could defeat Serena. That she can be better than Serena.

Its time to consolidate that Wimbledon win and prove to the Williams fans that Justine is capable of beating a Healthy Serena in HardCourts...
Then they will ran out of excuses.... or will they?.... :devil:

Obviously, Serena is healthy enough to hit backhands again. She isn't going to win USO not hitting a single backhand winner. I wouldn't read too much into the thumb injury at this point. She has been training, practicing, and hitting. She just hasn't had any official match practice, but once USO starts or maybe this week Venus comes. Then her and Venus hit with their male hitting partners from then to the end of their tournament. She will at least get to the quarters. The only sorta hump is Safarova who has taken her to a 3rd set tiebreak PRE-AO 2007 Serena. I think she'll get through that one, though.

An in form Serena is more than a match for Justine on hardcourt. But now a days that is not the Serena who shows up. But it is true the Serena after the knee surgery is not the one before it. However, I never count Serena out, never! She has taught me that over and over again. What I am interested to see is how she approaches the match mentally. Watched her battle herself against Jennifer it was a real transformation. She became the most dominant women player I have ever witnessed. Justine now has the momentum and the mental edge, what will Rena do? I will be watching if both make it to the quarters. Oh Serena has not just lost her speed, her precision is missing as well. At her best, Serena is power, precision, angles, and speed. Throw in the most dominant serve in the history of the women's game and she is a handful for any woman including Justine.

well yeah but a lot of that has to do with footspeed too. cuz b4 she could rely on her defense now its a liability. Plus she doesn't hit the ball nearly as hard as she used to. She's like Window's Vista. Looks a little nicer than XP but plays like shit.

Am I the only one who watched that Wimbledon match? Yes Serena lost and she couldn't hit a backhand, but she hit a lot of forehand winners on the run and I thought her defense was good because she won a lot of points defending. When I re-watched the match I realized that her approach shots need some work. I think she really needs to approach well to beat Henin.

Serena is still plenty fast but her quickness is lacking, however her court coverage is more than adequate. Definitely would not call it a liability. She is as powerful as she ever was but is using much more spin. Does not hit the ball as clean as she once did, but that is a function of match play. That is what I meant by precision, those powerful flat shots now either go into the net or long. So she is giving herself more room for error by using more top spin. I do agree a rallying and slicing Serena hitting a lot of topspin is not the lil sis I have come to know.

That is how you defeat Justine on grass and hardcourt. Come to net! She plays her opponents like they will never come in. She stands 6 ft behind the baseline to give herself a bit more time for those loopy shots. Serena turned Miami around by coming to net and hitting volleys.

but she has a mental issue with serena, she showed it at wimbledon and after the miami final when she confessed that she didn't believe before the match that she could beat serena, and thats really why even with a 6-0 5-4 2 mp lead she still couldn't close it out.

i think justine will win again. we dont know the satus of serenas health and lets face it unlike venus has movement has gotten worse as the years have gone by and if serena doesnt win i dont think it will be straight sets. even the one match that she did win against justine this year she got bageled and got a little help from two dfs while justine was serving for the match. justine tried to choke and give her the wimbledon match but serena was injured so she coudl take it. who ever wins will probably win in three sets. i fear that this match will be a repeat of the serena/mauresmo match last year.
OMG :haha::rolls: are you serious? :unsure:

The way I see it, one of two things could happen. Playing Justine in the quarterfinals and coming out victorious could really benefit her for the next matches (when you get a tough match under your belt, you gain confidence). Or it could be a problem if Serena is injured/out of shape/can't find her rhythm (as in their last two quarterfinal meetings). Personally, I hope for a good hard-fought match like in Miami, not like the beatdown at the French or the fluctuating quality of the Wimbledon quarterfinal. And hopefully Serena wins.
