:spit: at this thread being made before the results thread.

If they both play like they did in the second set of their respective matches, it's a bye for Serena to the semis.

I'm looking foward to it anyhow. I hope Ana can make it competetive.

It won't even be a match... but I just wanted to comment on how loopsided the draw ended up being. All seeds in the quarters in the top half.. only one in the botton half.

Ana you were so unlucky! Serena was just scary good today.

Serena hit 30 winners and 18 Ue's today, (some of the winners were hit on the run or from a defensive position in a stunning manner!) if she plays anywhere near that, Ana will be introduced to Serena's bakery.

if Serena continues to hit the ball SOOOOO hard and with such amazing angles then Ana will have a really hard time out there

Serena is looking awfully sharp (aside from the first set against Errani) but I wouldn't count out Ana, I think we all know what she is capable of. :shrug:

With that being said, I think Serena will win in 2 something like 7-5, 6-1.

This hardly a poll. Unless Serena becomes Knee-Rena she will win in straight sets I believe, although it might not be the complete wipe-out that some are predicting if Ana plays with any confidence. But Serena's return game is looking deadly. That said, a thinking player could get her out of position and try and to exploit her sometimes sloppy footwork - but I don't think that that player is Ana.

Nope. Serena in 2. ;)

And yes - Serena IS a beauty.
