Re: Serena's Next "Epic, Close Match" Opponent?

Did u really put Sharapova as an option? I'd pick any of those BUT Sharapova to even get a set off Serena going forward. Yes, even Kuzzy.

Li Na has the best chance despite her record and only having won the one match, most of their matches are quite tight.

Re: Serena's Next "Epic, Close Match" Opponent?

If you are talking about who challenges Serena everytime they play, that would be Na Li, but she usually doesn't make it far enough in tournaments to play her. Therefore I'd have to go with Azarenka.

Re: Serena's Next "Epic, Close Match" Opponent?

USO 2012 F was a classic even despite the quality aside the third set, I really think Azarenka or Na.

Re: Serena's Next "Epic, Close Match" Opponent?

Sveta would be the worst matchup for Serena in Australia, but I don't think she will get to play her..

From that list would be Azarenka and then Na.
or Sam and Kuzzy on clay
or Zheng Jie on grass

Re: Serena's Next "Epic, Close Match" Opponent?

Dream: Li Na makes the final.
The match goes 5-7 7-6 10-8. I don't care in whose favor.
I think Li Na has the best chance.

Re: Serena's Next "Epic, Close Match" Opponent?

If Serena plays well, winning five games in a set should be considered a great achievement. Na is the only one with a chance. The others will get trashed in two easy sets.

Re: Serena's Next "Epic, Close Match" Opponent?

sharapova as an option is a joke right? Didn't she last beat Serena like 10 years ago when she could actually move on the court?
