My feeling that Rena will storm to another title is still one match from being confirmed...
I was SO fucking wrong! Okay, I'm a Venus fan, and maybe I tend to doubt Serena because I'm so fucking MAD at her! But this was ..... this was knock-down drag-out, rip-tear-claw BEAT-down last girl-standing!

I stand humbled and corrected. I'm still a Venus-fan, but fucking ALL HAIL SERENA!

Volcana 7-6 Serena in the third. I'm officially shocked. Good fuckin' match. Took it a while. Sharapova wins this, she's kinda of officially realy fuckin' good.

I expect Sharapova to turn it up right NOW.

Serena wasn't great in all 3 sets. First set totally outplayed,
second set just hanging on by Sharpy choked..

Sort of woke up in the past games..and to save match points.

Volcana I thought Sharapova had it there. Instead 5-5.

Princess Sarah. i think maria is also going to win the tournament

Volcana When the match started, Serena was guiding the ball, and Sharapova was hitting with convicted.

In the last third of the second set, Serena started hitting with conviction.

Here in the third set, BOTH players are guiding the ball, instead of hitting with conviction.

I think Sharapova HAS more conviction, at this moment in time, but if she lets Serena lure her into a tactical match, Serena will win.

Sharapova needs to let it all hang out, and try to overpower Serena.

Serena needs to do everything she can to make this a mentla match, not a physical one.

Volcana My feelings haven't changed, but I AM enjoying the match.

1-6 7-5 (or 6-1 7-5 if you're... on of THOSE ... Sharapova fans... )

Prizeidiot I think Serena can beat Maria and would be favourite, based on her form leading up to the match. What is in the back of my mind though, is the possibility that Serena has a mental block. I know she got injured and all in the YEC, but maybe she just didn't think she could win. I know Serena has never been one to lack confidence, far from it, but it's just a thought. I hope she proves me wrong

"If she plays her best...." That's what I'm afraid of. If "ifs and buts" were fruits and nuts, what a merry Christmas we would all have.

Kart A bit of reverse psychology Volcana - I like it .

Why couldn't you have done this before Venus faced Molik .
