Re: WWW Wimbledon 2019? Serena Williams or Simona Halep?

Everyone forgets that their last match was in Melbourne where Simona was coming right after her disk hernia injury, she was not trained enough, no matches, no preparation, nothing, but she still pulled a three setter with a quite close score 6-1 4-6 6-4, in the aforementioned conditions. Now she is on fire and this surface suits her quite well. What makes you think she gonna get beaten so easily, lol...
Too many trolls here pretending to know tennis, IMHO.

And Serena hadn't played since the US Open, did Hopman, wasn't in shape...but found a way to compete...cuz she didn't play that well in that match.

Serena couldn't have asked for a better draw.

It's like all the stars have aligned for her to finally tie that evil witch Margaret Court.

I can't see her blowing this opportunity.

Re: WWW Wimbledon 2019? Serena Williams or Simona Halep?

If both players play to their standards, the outcome of this is NID! Both will be nervous from the start but will loosen up and get down to business after that. First WB final for Halep. So, don't go thinking she will be cool and calm. Halep will need a miracle here. Serena lost 2 finals in her comeback; understandable at that stage of the comeback considering she came back too early after childbirth and was considerably overweight. The situation is different this time around. I say Serena in 2! Good luck to both!

Re: WWW Wimbledon 2019? Serena Williams or Simona Halep?

Heart says Simona, mind says Serena.
Serena is more desperate for that 24th than Simona is for a Wimbledon title. And if Serena will be firing on all cylinders, Simona might be the one to fall in order for Serena to get her record win.

Does she send the blow that ends or can you move her with the first shot and with the second you almost get the point? If you do not finish the point quickly, out of three strokes she gets a winning one. Mathematically and on paper, Simona can win with anyone and quite easily.
What's this need for Ion and the Romanian contingent to repeatedly be this rude and nasty to Serena?

I wouldn't say Serena is desperate, she seems pretty calm to me, of course that could all change tomorrow during her match. I've listened to her post match interview and getting to 24 isn't a top priority, she just loves playing and competing. As a Serena fan I'm hoping she takes the title but either way, I'm hoping for a great match.

I guess he has not seen Pliskova, Giorgi, Osaka and Kvitova play. Reason why he is singling out Serena.
Or is there another reason?????

I hope Serena takes it, but I wouldn't mind seeing Halep as a Wimby champion. I think Serena needs to cut down the UE on her returns and stay aggressive. On the other hand, if Halep somehow manages to move Serena and not get bullied she will have her chances. For Halep, that backhand down the line might be the key to her Wimbledon crown. Voted and hope for Serena in three tight sets.

Re: WWW Wimbledon 2019? Serena Williams or Simona Halep?

At the rate Fedal is going right now tomorrow Halep will be able to slide on the baseline as if where once was grass now is clay. But seriously, we've not yet made it to the finals and Center Court's grass is looking like absolute crap, utterly destroyed.

The media is hyping 24, not Serena, I don't think you understand what's going on here, it's a good story for the media so they run with it.
