Re: WWW Wimbledon 2019? Serena Williams or Simona Halep?
Serena's chances might be a bit overrated again , or Halep is underestimated again. From what I saw against Strycova (who brought absolutely nothing to the SF, same as Svitolina) I am still not convinced with her movement and fitness. The thing is that both her draws have been quite easy (I knew Halep or K.La Bot were in the F when I saw the draw), that is difficult to guess how good their forms really are. If Serena servebots, hits those FH angles to draw Halep, who is a short player and struggles there, out of court and keeps her nerves under control, it should be her. Halep hasn't Osaka's game to dominate, or Kerber's ability to redirect and keep Serena on her toes in rallies, she's much more predictable, but she's still a top defender that can also play aggressively and hit winners, If Serena is as nervous as in her last 2 F, it could turm into another mess of clumsy footwork + UEs, and Halep at some point will have a chance to turn the match into a scrambling physical fight, and we know who has the upper hand there.
Everyone who thinks Osaka is fake is a fake person themselves and needs to be called out.
