At least this disastrous tournament will get the best possible final between No.1 and No.2.
The positives are that she won all her 5 matches in straight sets, got to 500 wins and beat some tough opponents like Lisicki and Ana
Also, she is still 1st in the WTA race and will earn new points for reaching the final
And if anything, the clay streak is still alive and even if it ends tomorrow, she is W/QF/W/W/W/F on clay in the last 2 years
There are no negatives from this tournament.
If she loses to Serena, it's expected and as far as the scoreline goes, we've seen it all: 6-0 6-1, 6-1 6-1, 6-1 6-2, etc. It can't be worse than that, so there are any negatives really.
We'll hold our heads up high tomorrow
