Re: Who makes the final from the top half?

By now (R16), the top half is much more loaded than the bottom

top still has Barty, Kvitova, Serena

Pliskova is the only one in the bottom with grass pedigree, you can argue Halep also.


top also has Konta and Strycova and for what it's worth, Riske who is doing well on grass recently.

whereas bottom's next seed after Plis and Halep is Svitolina, who is not good on grass and has equalled her best performance here so far. Bottom has some potential future stars in Yastremska, Muchova, and Gauff, but they still have a bit to prove.

Venus Serena JJ Bethanie Vania Naomi
Petra S. Peng S. Zhang Su-Wei Vera Cici
Vesnina Sveta McHale Zarina Qiang Lizette Danielle Dayana Amanda
Elina Min Garbiñe Sachia Luksika Yafan Niculescu Sofia Sloane Franny Crawford Patty Shelby
Kokkinakis Pospisil Coric Nishikori Berdych Huey Shapovalov Sock F.Lopez Murray Tiafoe Dmitrov Monfils Thiem Roanic Tsonga Khachanov Sugita Chung
--Praying for the return of carpet courts-- Good for the body and quick points!

Re: Who makes the final from the top half?

I closed the poll after week 1 and people didnt believe in Serena. More thought Kerber would play Barty and more liked Kvitova. Now I think the Serena/Barty winner is the favorite

Re: Who makes the final from the top half?

So only Serena and Konta are left in this race, and those two had 7 votes combined. The TF curse continues.

These are the only players who have consistently made at least one Grand Slam final for the last 3 years (Serena is I think up to 13 consecutive years, that's nuts), also the only players to make two Grand Slam finals last year. ALSO between both of them they've been in all of last year's Slam finals. So respecting tradition it was either this or the US Open, and it turns out it was this one after all. And it's only fitting that they would finally meet in a final here, where interestingly enough they also had their very first match 8 years ago in R2.

Getting to slam finals in consecutive years, is that a record Serena holds alone at 13 years with men and women?

Evert has 14, I think she is number 1 on that list. But Serena has a very good chance to match her next year and possibly even overtake her in 2021 if she's still as competitive as she is today.
