Thanks Charlatan, this is the type of Grand Slam thread Maria deserves.

Seriously, don't you think it's easier for Maria to beat Serena in a SF than a F?

Maybe, but I'm also concerned about my mental health if she were to beat Serena and then go on to lose to Guest in the finals again :sobbing:

If I recall, didn't Maria beat Guest the last two times they played; the last time when Maria's shoulder was falling off at 2013 RO?

The days of Guest challenging Maria are numbered!

Ill never underestimate someone who handed Maria a bagel in a grand slam final, and has beaten her in what, 5 finals total? :shrug:

I agree. Let's wait and we'll have the outcome in 3 weeks.

the best scenario would be SF against Serena in intense three set match alá 2005 SF but Maria beating Serena this time and turn all things around :devil:

The best scenario is beating serena in a GS final after 10 years.
