    Pova has BP.... Li still likes the lines. And today the lines like her. DEUCE!

    The only thing better than watching Maria get destroyed is seeing Serena get destroyed. Both mindless ball bashes and shriekers.

    Go Li ! God, can we hope for a Li-Sloane final?

    let's not turn this into a discussion about serena (plenty of other threads about her), but serena is not a mindless ball basher. power may be a defining feature of her game, but she also has major strengths in fitness (when she's healthy) and is able to make adjustments mid-match. she is also not a shrieker like sharapova, who has that high pitched shriek on EVERY ball. there's at least some variation in the noise she makes depending upon the shot she's hit :)

    I sense there will be some drama this set. In their 12 meetings, the winner of the 1st set won 11 of those matches.

    The only drama that would make me watch this crap is if they end up mud wrestling naked in the middle of the court.

    Equal pay......what a joke.

    Why not complain to the chair about the skreeeeeeeetching? That would throw her off.

    You remember what Shriekapova said about Radwanska's comment on her shrieking? That no one important had told her to tone it down. What an arrogant poc.

    I feel like there have been a few opportunities for Li to challenge that she hasn't used well.

    Second set's quality has gone down...way down. Disgusting performance from both the players in second set.

    Li followed a short ball to the net. She didn't have to make a volley though.
