Superb match, really high quality tennis from both the players. Zheng had some stunning returns. One of the best quality matches this year

Serena produced some world class tennis. Some of the angles were just out of this world :worship:

This is how a world number#1 should play. Dominate and dictate in a stunning fashion and not try to rely on opponents errors.

Great performance today from Serena. 30 winners to 18 unforced errors is a very good ratio :yeah:

The serve continues to function well and as has been the case throughout all of this year, Serena conjured up some superb winners off the FH. There were 3 angled ones early in the second set that were beautiful :drool:

Zheng played her part in creating a good match!

Lots of amazing plays from both players. Serena had to work very hard for this win. She was getting so frustrated out there.

It's also amazing how hard Zheng can hit the ball, given her size. :worship:

Jie had five bp chances in the second set? :confused: Wow! And, she broke Serena in the second? Does that mean she only held serve once? Was it early or late in the second set?

Good match from both players. Jie made some good shots but she just didn't have the weapons to trouble Serena. Serena played like her ranking, especially after changing her racket. I really liked how fired up she got when Jie made some unbelievable returns.

Good luck against Ana.

Serena was killing the ball with her FH
She's playing great tennis since her first match in Paris OGDF

Too bad she has a long rest before Miami. She'll probably lose her momentum and maybe her fitness too

God I hated Suzanne. If it weren't for Kim she would have lost that task where they made a profit guessing Kim's age. Knowing what Diddy is like they are probably not working for him.

Serena played an excellent match, but I was very impressed with Zheng. So often players are intimidated by Serena and crumble, but Serena had to work damn hard to win this one - much tougher than the scoreline suggests. I still don't think she is moving that well. When wrong footed, she had trouble adjusting, but Serena reads the game so well and has the power and imagination to make a lot of great shots. Zheng showed that being aggressive can work (to an extent) but she was just not quite good enough to ever really be in with a chance of winning.

The bottom half of the draw is mouthwatering - Serena/Ana, Venus/Elena. Surely the winner will come from here.
