    Azarenka can definitely take a set.

    Going with Azarenka in 3, despite her not really playing well in her other matches. I just hope it's a good match though.

    I want goaterena to give a beatdown and show everyone who's the boss. However, I picked serena in 3. I think she will stress out from the occasion and have a lapse or two, but hopefully will prevail.

    Azeranka's serving has been subpar, but she returned Serena's serve well the last match they played...

    I'd love to see Vika win the first set, just to see what kind of nerves hit Serena.

    Bad start for Vika. But, she's very good at working her way into a match after starting slowly. On the other hand, Serena hasn't let up this whole tournament.

    Typical Serena always starts off like a cheetah. She crushes spirit early. Key is for Vika to try and catch the queen falling asleep in the 2nd set and then take it to 3. Dont know if that will happen but its her only hope.

    Two games. Two breaks. Wind seems to be a factor.

    Serena naturally feels more wind than Azarenka. Gets in your head.

    Stupid game by Serena. That's the gift Vika needed to get grounded in the match.

    So when Ashe Stadium gets a roof, I wonder if they'll close it for the wind...

    ROFLMAO.. These mindless ball bashers like Serena can't compensate for the wind. She looks like a deer in headlights

    Slice looks like the way to go this match. Slice everything, Brad Gilbert style.

    Azeranka hits the ball earlier and cleaner than any other top player (off the ground)...

    It's amazing how Carillo never misses an opportunity to make a snide remark, in this case, about Serena's dress.

    I didn't see people complaining last year when Murray was winning the USO because of the wind (the ONLY reason Murray won last year)

    And there's that Patrick is more than a coach "...on and off the court." Anybody got a gag?

    Azarenka needs to take this set quickly before Serena gets a chance to adjust.

    That it is a "...poorly designed wind dress, although it DOES show us how windy it is."

    A flatter ball cuts through the wind more, so wouldn't that will help against Rafa?

    It didn't seem to help in last year's final against Lady Forehand.
