Did anyone watch?
apart from the DF count which I think cost her a break it looks to be a great performance.

Great tank job Patty. You didn't even try. I don't know why you showed up. Worst match ever. Retire.

Patty was so aawful. lol. she hit so many UE
Serena was hot and cold. She was much more aggressive and some of her shots on the run were great. But made some more UE but i'm glad cuz at least she's trying to dictate much more.

And the 5 df in the 1st set were Serena practicing a more aggresive 2nd serve. So the DF are a good thing imo cuz in the 2nd set when she started hitting them liek she was in the 1st rd and at Wimbly she was winning like 1 of 5 at one point and Patty isn't the greatest of returners out there.

Great Win Serena!! Keep working on that movement, 2nd serve, and being aggressive even if there are a few more UE and DF.
Patty please play better next time.

apart from the DF count which I think cost her a break it looks to be a great performance.

Forehand and movement was alot better today. A few errors on serve but otherwise very strong performance.

Good job Serena!! Except for a few patches in the first set, you played well and consistent tennis!

i don't think they were bad patches cuz she was just being more aggresive on her 2nd serve and her groundies. Which imo is better for her in the long run even if means she loses some games and maybe a match here and there. Just being consistent doesn't win slams, just ask Jankovic :angel:

She was definitely more aggressive today, and that's a good thing. The serve was pretty effective today (when she got it in), but to echo everyone's sentiments, Patty was NOT there at ALL today. She hit a couple of really good shots, but she just wasn't with it at all!

Good job Ree! Errorena would have made it much more difficult! 2 more wins :yeah:

Did it ever occur to you guys that because of Serena's game Patty could not play hers.

Patty is no match for Serena. Besides Serena knows her game and she has no weapons to beat Serena.

agreed serena was ok at best, serve was a bit dodgy but it didn't matter as patty was total shit, she came out with the game plan to hit serena off the court, great idea patty :weirdo:

This is a quality win for her. Patty has beaten her on the hard stuff before. I believe it was actually in Miami one year, wasn't it? :scratch:

I was taping this on the PVR while tending to some things around the house. I was still keeping track kinda and then all of a sudden the match was over :tape:
Nice angles from Serena, from what I saw. Going to watch it now.

Well i am not impressed by either girl this match!

It was just very low-quality. And while i was watching i was thinking Serena could play like this and still get to #1 :tape:

Well done Ree for winning so convincingly but tbh i REALLY don't know how that happened :tape:

Jul 19th, 2008, 10:45 AM
Just watched the match. Like Manatee says, it seems like Serena was working some things out with her own game during the match.

One thing Serena doesn't get as much credit for that she deserves is her smart tennis. She kept that ball deep to Patty's forehand, and she never let up.
