In fact serena despite her formidable form is more likely to get upset cause of her focus issues.
Out of the top 3 vika is the most likely one to get out before QFs though.
agree on everything here, but, Pova, despite her big reputation for mental toughness seemed to me like a mess when she is expected to win/defend BIG, like her grand slams and like when is expected to when GS, ie Wimby 2011, Wimby 2012 (she was #1) AO 2012, AO2013 (after Serena lost)
so, defending this slam will be very heavy for her, but definitely doable given the opposition on clay
