Cornet did well to defeat Szavay but Serena is a different story altogether. Serena, 6-3, 6-3.

Never mind I just found out that Serena has never played Cornet. And she has never played Szavay either.

I really don't think it will be all that easy but two tough sets.

I think Serena will win,I remember her playing Venus.She is no threat but she does have a nice clay game but Serena will overpower her.

Serena, 2 easy sets. That's no shame for alize though. She did extremely well but serena is just a bit too big for her to knock over right now. Hopefully it'll be an entertaining match with alize showing some of her claygame. Anyway, i expect my jankovic-serenafinal to happen.

Experience vs Talent.

This Alize QF vs Agi is 100 career match of Cornet (she won 69)... she is so young and green.
That is also her 70 career match at clay :eek: (she won 53)... she already played more matches at this surface than Serena in this century (since 2000) so that means for this claycourt match:

Experience = Cornet
Talent = Serena


:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: - but this is not joke!!!

Some interesting stats there.

I think the most important thing is for Serena to play her game and not underestimate Alize.
Hopefully its a good match and Serena gets through to the final.

Would you like anything else with those sour grapes of yours. Serena once again handed it to Masha so you feel the need to come in here and ridicule your self. That is the sad thing. Alizé is an amazing player I said so when she pushed Venus at the French more than the score implied anyways. Serena should be too much though. Monroe 6-4, 6-2 :)

Alize has the sort of game that could annoy her but Serena`s first serve percentage would have to drop for Alize to have a good chance.

Szavay could have been dangerous but not Alizée

Interestingly I thought the exact opposite ;)

I think she'll be a challenge considering her success on clay. I just hope Serena comes ready to rumble and not underestimate Cornet. Good luck Serena!!:bounce:

Yeah, okay, honey. Cause I talked about Maria in my post. :lol:

So I happen to dislike Serena. Something wrong with that?

omg seriously? That's funny :lol:Sorry... i checked this stats again and notice that i added twice this tournament in Alize Cornet record...

Cornet Career stats is:
Overall - won 66 of 97 matches.
Clay - won 50 of 67 matches.

Serena Career since 2000:
Overall - won 293 of 347 matches.
Clay - won RG and 54 of 69 matches.

Serena in this century have (T-W-O matches :help:) more Experience at clay than 18 yo Cornet. What a surprise :p.

lol. But still Cornet has 67 matches on clay while Serena only has 69. :tape: Serena has barely played on clay in the last few years so that's prolly why and I suspect Cornet loves playing on this surface and will garner most of her success on it.

bwahahahahaha

Cornet, an 18-year-old in her second season on the tour, also reached the semifinals at Amelia Island last week. Ranked No. 40, she has never faced Williams but watched her play Friday.

"I said 'Oh my God, if I play Serena tomorrow, I hope not to be ridiculous,'" she said. "I think I will do what I do usually. I will use my topspin forehand. I will run everywhere I can and I will just do my best and fight on every point."

What a down to earth, cute girl. Alize :hearts:

as long as Serena is fine after her fall and she plays her serve well, it should be a pretty comfortable win.

I still hope Alize tho :p

Just a tip from fellow stats-freak:
NEVER mix real stats (aka WTA tour main draws) with fake stats (aka ITF draws and WTA qualies) ;)
Cornet has played 24 WTA Tour main draws matches on clay courts before Charleston-2008.
