Re: Serena Williams will win Wimbledon

Could happen. Win vs. Goerges and CSN, then two twisted ankles and the QF of death is vs. Harriet Dart instead of Barty or Riske. And from the semis on, any rustiness ought to be gone.

She won’t win it, she will vulture it. Feasting on the carcasses of a dead WTA without the need to hunt.

Re: Serena Williams will win Wimbledon

You are so pathetic and desperate with your jinxing. Half of your posts are about Serena. Get a life dude.

Also, let's not pretend that Kvitova, Barty, Pliskova and Halep aren't still in the draw.

Simona was close in Melbourne, she has a chance.

Serena wake the fuck up and win this! Please GOD!

Re: Serena Williams will win Wimbledon

Assuming she wins against Goerges (up a set and a break, so it looks good), the match against La Carla will be a really good bellwether of where she's at. They've played 6 times and La Carla has managed just 16 games in that stretch, avoided a bagel set per match just twice, avoided a bagel or breadstick set per match just once.

It seems unlikely La Carla will be any real threat, but what happens will be demonstrative of where Serena is level-wise. After that, I'd give her even odds against Barty, favored over Riske, and even odds against Konta and Bertens, with Kvitova having a slight edge (based on Serena's occasional lefty misadventures). Any other possible SF opponent she'd be favored against.

Certainly a good chance, but a lot of roadblocks.

Serena is mentally more fragile these days. But if there's one slam where one should fancy her chances then it should be Wimbledon, where her serve matters the most.

Of the decade. I'm dead. At wimbledon, the only grass event that matters:

Serena 42-4 91.3% (4 titles)
Petra 31-7 81.6% (2 titles)

Sit down.

Re: Serena Williams will win Wimbledon

It's easy to forget that she got to the final just last year. Without Angie in the mix I like her chances a lot. If I were a betting man no question she'd be my pick.

Re: Serena Williams will win Wimbledon

Serena looked like the favorite today. She might still have to beat Barty and Kvitova in this half, but she looks like she can

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Serena Williams will win Wimbledon

When she will be pressured, she could lack composure at any moment. Moroever her half is really tough.

Kvitova is in the same half but not the same quarter so they'd meet in SF.
