5. M.Bartoli --> A.Radwanska

Zheng is actually a really good match-up for Stosur. I wouldn't call her Sam's nemesis.

I mentioned that because each match of Serena and Nadia was three setter and Serena leads their H2H minimally 3-2. Not many players can achieve every match with Serena so close.

Fair enough. I think of nemesis as someone you either have beaten in the past and can't seem to figure out currently OR someone who just owns the other player.

I get that they have a close head-to-head but that hardly means she's a nemesis. She's never beaten Serena in a highs takes match. All of Serena's are retired (Capriati and Henin).

if only high stakes matches are counted than Shrapova vs Serena is 2-5, so don't start it

LOL don't get mad! Its true Nadia hasn't won a big match over Serena which is a basic criteria to be considered the rival/nemesis of a player. I don't think only big matches count but if a player can't beat someone at a slam or in the late rounds of any tournament they are hardly a nemesis.

This, her record must be 5-2 or something similar, Id say Sam's nemesis is definitely Azarenka.

Serena's nemesis is either Henin or Venus.
