just hoping someone stops Serena before she gets to ruin another final Keys or Barty are our only hope with that typical weak Serena draw i think.

Serena didn't come today to play. She didn't come to win either. Serena came to destroy. And destroy she most certainly did.

If only Serena could bring this level in her last three slam finals

Pova

embarrassing, but NID.

That was a crucifixion. The gulf in talent between them is so pronounced at this point.

Martha actually played a decent match by her standards. Hitting 75% first serves is VERY good for her… and yet she only held twice in the match.

Sharapova’s ball just sits up for Serena. Its really something that i cant compare to any match up. Its just in her strike zone and when Serena doesnt need to adjust, nothing much can go wrong.

Re: USO R1: [8] Serena def. Sharapova 6-1 6-1

I think the saddest thing is that Pova literally can't even perform the basics.

Imo Serena didn't serve as well as some make out, she was missing many 1st serves in the 2nd set and actually faced 5 BPs. Just that, Pova can't hit two groundstrokes in a row, and if you make her hit a shot on the run, she sends it flying into the doubles tramlines. Against a far sharper returner and better mover, she'll be made to pay.

Still work for Serena to do. Luckily, she has a cakewalk draw to the QF.

Formerly hurty, ELISE-GOAT.
