well it should be a tough match for Serena since Jankovic will be hitting all of those winners on the run; something Serena's never seen before since there are only two players on tour who can do that.

JJ is going to fight like hell (as usual), but the way Serena's been playing, JJ won't be able to handle her. Especially if Serena's serve is clicking.

Based on form and based on weapons Serena should win, but Jankovic can be more than a backboard and turn that back hand of hers into a weapon. Jankovic has no chance if she's not on, but if she cuts her UEs down then it could be a lot closer than some people expect.

Whether it's close or not, I expect Serena to win, but I have a feeling it will probably be two close split sets before Serena runs away with the match in the third. Hopefully I'm wrong and it's two quick sets both in Serena's favor.

If Jankovic were playing well like she did for 3/4 of 2007 it would go in 3 but the way she's playing now it will be 6-2, 6-2 if even that.

interesting match... comparing serves its gonna have to be up to jelena to break serena as i dont see her holding her own serve easily...

jelena will feel like she has nothing to lose, and serena will put a bit of expectation and pressure on herself to win, which could make her tight...

judging on form from this event it should be serena in two, but jelena plays as well as needed agaisnt most of her opponents so i expect a big step up on form... in most events jelena plays poorly in the early stages in 3 sets or two tight sets, until she meets an in form player. like so many times last year when she met henin, she just played unbelieveably well compare to the rest of the event, or even later at the us open, before she met venus she was playing as well as she's played here in the early rounds, but on the night played one of the best matches of the year IMO...

so really i think its still quite up in the air, unless serena can put on another performance like her 4th round match i think its going to be close...

im loving the top half of the draw, i just wish these players were on opposite sides because these two matches would make perfect semi's!! i barely check whats going on in the bottom half! lol!

Serena shouldn't have too many problems if Jankovic doesn't raise her game. Although Serena could have a bad day. Serena to win.

If Serena plays a clean match she should win because I have a feeling Jankovic is going to get alot of balls back and wait for Serena to implode.

I'ma pray for JJ to win but Serena is on her game and JJ isn't all there, but i don't think it will be and easy win for Serena. Jelena is gonna fight like hell and Serna better beable to fight just as hard cause JJ endurance is a littke better than Serna's. Hopefully Jelena will be rested since she has an extra day off. Ya never know with her she could comeout and beat Serena in straight sets if she's on her game, but idk about this time.

Serena must be careful, JJ's a worthy opponent. I will never forget her match against Venus in NY :worship:
Still, Serena is Serena. I'd say Serena in 3.

I don't see how Jankovic is going to break Serena's serve while holding her own. As Jelena herself said, Serena's serve has been ATP level this week. In fact, if Serena keeps serving as well as she has been thus far, I don't see how she doesn't win the tournament.

Well to me the most telling thing about JJ was the fact that she didn't even bother to play her match against Serena at Hopman Cup two weeks ago. But JJ still managed to go out and play doubles. JJ knows that in order for her to beat Serena she has to be fit and healthy and confident that she can beat Serena. She didn't feel that way at Hopman Cup and she doesn't feel that way now. Serena in two easy sets.

I like JJ, but Serena would have to be in dire form to not win this one in straight sets.

I really want to believe JJ can win this in 3! But I think Serena will be too good!

Although in saying that Serena is really growing on me, Im starting to like her more and more now.

Serena is one of if not The tours biggest fighters. Serena's serve is huge at the moment and she's playing well, Janko meanwhile is a bit fatigued, recently injured and in bad form.

= another straight sets win for Williams
