View Full Version : How close can Meghann play Serena on Thursday?

Jan 20th, 2003, 12:44 PM
I do think Serena will win, but I am suspecting it will be a close match. Meghann has been undefeated this year (admittedbly she play many low ranked players) but her performance this couple of weeks already outweight the performance she put on last year. Can she put Serena to a test?

I looked at her stats for her past few matches and they are looking pretty good.

My prediction Serena in two very close set, or a three setter with Serena running away in the third

Close first set (with a couple of trade in breaks), but Serena will run away with the second:

6/4 6/1

I like Meghann, but to be honest, I thought Bovina would have more chance of beating Serena than she would.

I thought Bovina chances were also better but Kudos to Mehgann for winning, Bovina had many break chances and was unable to convert. I believe the only reason Mehgann was able to hang with Serena last year is because Serena twisted her ankle leading 2:1, it was taped and she tried to continue but after 4:5 realized she could not continue which probably saved her from doing even more damage to her legs. with that said serena 6:4, 6:2.

I don't think Mehgann has a chance. M.J. was talking up her "big serve" and forehand last night but I don't see it doing any damage to Serena.

Probably not very close knowing how Serena steamrolls players whom she knows have potential to give her trouble.

That said, Shaugnessy has some impressive wins in her career, inlcuding one Venus Williams, so she certainly can cause trouble.

Shaughnessy can do some damage, especially if Serena makes errors.

when did meghan baet Venus ? was that this year? i want to see that ? was it a 3 setter. im bet it was a good match cus meghan, when she is on, can play really well.

Stanford 2001 I think, 2-6 7-5 7-6 for Meghann or similiar score.

Jan 20th, 2003, 08:04 PM
6:3, 6:4 to Serena

Jan 20th, 2003, 11:02 PM
if Meghann has a good day serving, I think her serve is tough to break. Still Serena should get through, but I think it will be a test.

Serena: 64 76

At the very least, I want Meghann to wear Serena out because that way Clijsters can beat a tired Serena!
