"hope" will be the Key thing for Mauresmo in this match.
If Serena is on Mauremos has no chances. Like at the Italian Serena was firing and killed Amelie in that first set 6-1. But Amelie is going to have to "hope" serena is off. Or if Serena is on "hope" she lets up on her game to let her in the match. Again Like Mary C keeps saying. Right now Serena Williams is the only player out there right now that can beat Serena Williams. As good a player Amelie is, Serena can come out and dismiss her in 45 minutes like she is a top 100 player. But again, Amelie's "hope" factor will be in play, but hell we haven't even gotten to that damn round yet!
Assuming they face each other and don't lose out earlier:
I want Mauresmo to go through, she has been playing well. However, she can be really off and we saw in the 1st round a set was taken to 7-5 before she closed it out. Anything like that against Serena and she has no chance in hell.
If Mauresmo can get this to a 3rd set, then I think it is hers for the taking. Serena can get agitated out there and just begin to look like she doesn't care..
