Re: Wimbledon SF: Serena def. Strycova 6-1 6-2

lol. That was practice for Serena. She may hit the practice courts after she gives her mandatory interviews. I just may be updating my signature in a couple of days. It’s been like that since 2017.

You just wouldn’t bet against Serena getting her 24 on Saturday if she comes out swinging with that level of confidence

2 duds of Semifinals...that's why I wanted Konta to win....she definitely would have made it bit more competitive with her botting atleast

Serena

That was sooo easy
Serena simply too strong and powerful

Head To Head now 4-0 Serena never lost a set.

Funny that they met 2x at Aus Open and 2x at Wimbledon.

Barbie

She was overpowered. Barbie did well to reach the SF. She can be proud.

Serena was flawless and impeccable today. Nobody on tour has a chance against her when she displays this level.

B... bu... but she has no movement, she can't rally, her groundstrokes are horrendous the delusional haters still try to convince themselves ad nausea.

Re: Wimbledon SF: Serena def. Strycova 6-1 6-2

Strycova was a bit injured and played really bad. My prediction: Simona will win the final and we'll have some drama like in US OPEN 18. SI-MO-NA SI-MO-NA

Re: Wimbledon SF: Serena def. Strycova 6-1 6-2

Welp, Serena was on fire today. Not much else to say, this is her best match in I don't even know how long. I actually think Babs didn’t necessarily using the wrong tactics. She was mixing it up and moving her around, defending well and returning smartly... Serena just had all the answers today. The only real hole were some uncharacteristic dropshot and volley misses for Strycova.

Congrats to Serena! Take the title!
And may Barbie win the doubles title with Hsieh and finally get that #1 ranking!

NID. However, Barbie was injured and that made Serena's task even easier. Serena would have taken it anyway. This is Serena's title to lose. Simona would have to come up with a colossal nearly perfect performance to win. Just being realistic.

Re: Wimbledon SF: Serena def. Strycova 6-1 6-2

Bara played like someone who had never been to Slam SF before, just bags of nerves and missed all the shots she easily made against Konta. Serena got so bored, she even practiced holding from 0-40 at the end of the first set.

2 epic SFs today. Sorry, no refunds!

Easy, flawless win for Serena as I expected. No troubles closing out, other than going down 0-40 while serving for the first set. Everything seems to be firing right now.

Barbie I'm happy for her she made a slam SF, but she doesn't have anything to hurt Serena with.
