Meghann didn't play badly. Only 19 UEs vs 12 winners,
But TWELVE winners. Serena's footspeed, running down everything.

Arantxa's wheels, Monica's hammer and her big sister's top speed.

If Kim doesn't play better they can mail this one in. 37 unforced errors to 27 winners is ... a great way to make Serena overconfident, but that's about it. The best thing youcan say about it is better against Myskina. At least she has a chance to practice.

Yeah, Serena has been playing better than Kim since Emilie Loit for Serena and after Kim started racking up the UE against Poutchek. I'm so damn scared!

I just watched Serena vs Meghann. It wasn't as close as the score.

This is how they played today, not how they are going to play on Friday, so get over it and enjoy the match

Tough when the stats don't look favorable, huuh?

Funny...people have been saying how on-fire Kim is. How she's been playing isn't going to determine how she plays tomorrow?! I guess in tennis anything can happen, but history does play into it a bit. Serena may get even cleaner and Kim may make even more errors.

Yeah, I watched the Serena-Meg match and I'm surprised Meg even got four games. It looked like a double-bagel quality game to me. Imagine if Serena continues to cut down her errors...

No, I actually like Serena. I would just prefer that Kim won

Jeez. I just don't know how Rena makes so few errors.

One aspect of the game that has no direct stat is Defense.Kim needs to have the perfect balance btw D and O to trouble Rena.

Kim's defense is excellent, maybe the best in the game, now that Cappy has slipped. Problem is her serve is only a slight plus, so Serena will always be able to pressure her on serve, whereas Serena is always capable of popping in an easy service game. As usual the serve is the defining differeence between a Williams and her opponent. If Serena's serving well its gonna take a herculean match by Kimmie to win.
