Most exciting Wimbledon 2019 SF match ?

Which SF match is the most exciting ?

Halep-Svito looks like much as a classic WTA battle that could turn into a real epic 3 setter while Williams-Strycova is most likely the one sided without suspense match under 1 hour.
Do you agree ?

Before the match? Probably Strycova because I expect Svitolina to win in 2 quick sets

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Serena/Strycova should be a proper grass-court match.

Re: Most exciting Wimbledon 2019 SF match ?

Serena vs Strycova should be fun with lots of great shot making and death stares.

Svitolina vs Halep will be a boring slugfest, as their matches typically are.

disagree... Williams showed today that she needs to win points in 2 shots or less, if she has to hit 3 or more shots per point on a consistent basis, she's in deep trouble... and Strycova seems like she might be able to force her to do that. The match could be very interesting.

Both could be entertaining... or not.

Another question?

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

You were also expecting China to be celebrating tonight, so perhaps Halep can surprise you again?

Halep-Svitolina for me. 2 top end WTA players, and no clear and obvious favourite. Bring it on.

Re: Most exciting Wimbledon 2019 SF match ?

I'm hoping Bara can give Serena as hard a time as Vinci did at the same stage a few years ago. I think it could get difficult for Williams playing someone with such all court variety rather than a straightforward hitter she can go toe to toe with.

He's just so bitter that her whiny queen is nowhere to be seen.

At 41 with a point for 51 I thought there would be.But Zhang folded when Halep started playing better
Still a good major for Zhang and Qiang. But they have to be better finishers. On grass if you're up 41 you have to win the set

Re: Most exciting Wimbledon 2019 SF match ?

Golovin called Svitolina "basically a second Halep" on TV today. She didn't look thrilled by this upcoming SF.

Serena has never lost a set to Strycova, it will be entirely serve dominated and about as enthralling as her matches with Goerges and CSN...

Halep and Svitolina, two players on their worst surfaces, will either be over quickly or a drawn out choke-fest from both, which hasn't been exciting since the first time it happened between them. There is nothing exciting about predictable.

Therefore I voted neither. RG had a much more exciting and unpredictable lineup.

Jankovic~Hantuchova~Vakulenko~Zheng~Bammer~Goerges ~Cetkovska~Safarova~Lisicki

Zakopalova~Dulko~Paszek~Pironkova~Clijsters~Golovi n~K.Bondarenko~Bouchard~Tsurenko

Schiavone~Li~Petkovic~Perebiynis~Mirza~Morigami~Fe dak~Wickmayer~Peer

The most exciting part of this major was a Hercog round of 16.
Actually, Serena/Riske was good for most of set 3, and Pliskova's loss was close
Think about the big 3 yesterday. That was boring!
