    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    Legs are gone and exposed fully again tonight. The kid got a bit nervous and Williams had a few swings that went in or it was 6-3 6-1, which was a fair reflection. Mental coaching and rocket fuel mean jack, when you play someone decent and the legs are shot. She is only getting to the finals...

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    Based on gerrymandered draws last year and this year all those that would have beaten her have got knocked out, like Barty. Nobody to beat here before the final again just like Wimbledon, Svitolina isn't the player she was 2 years ago, lost her way.

    2019 US Open Women's Final - (8.) SERENA Williams vs. (15.) BIANCA Andreescu

    Rusedski is a good pundit. A student of the game who calls it as he sees it. Bianca hasn't lost much for a long time and pretty much played everyone she had to be favourite.

    Or Bencic looks in great shape and the courts in this event suit her perfectly.

    2019 US Open - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    Williams won't last the pace she has a punchers chance based on first serve and second return but today was a good rehersal for Williams, Elina played low risk percentage today against a slowish mover, Williams leg's are shot so she has even more margin in that match up. My only question about...

    Forced really with relentless pressure, Konta is a manufactured player Svitolina very talented with great hands. If she serves ok she will beat Williams.

    2019 US Open - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    Yes I would agree with that I don't think she has got to grips with the fact she can't run at this level anymore. Taking pace off against a player like Halep or Svitolina is a good idea rather than playing big low percentage shots but her ego will not permit that style of Tennis.

    2019 US Open - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    The key is the legs are gone so the chances are any quality Tennis player will beat her if they are good enough to expose that, technically and crucially upstairs. The only way Williams could beat a player with these qualities now is destruction on first serve and second return, this is more...

    2019 US Open - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    Svitolina would have Williams blowing out of her backside within 15 minutes but she would need a big first serve percentage, I would certainly give her an even chance against Williams, Andreescu and Bencic should beat her in straights, as Simona did. Like the look of the Chinese girl, she has a...

    And Georges isn't? Donna has done well this year she is capable of getting to top 10 as she gets fitter and sharper round the court.

    Well it is make her run early and the legs are shot, power quickly diminishes as well. Yet again in a GS Williams avoids playing anyone of note until late in a GS. The Chinese girl can she handle the big game, Konta I wouldn't trust her, it is possible Williams can get to the final again...

    2019 US Open - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    Hard to say but they would make a great final. Easy on the eye no matter the quality of the Tennis. If Bella gets through today that could happen, I would really expect Elina to beat Konta and Williams playing as she did last night, if the Chinese girl can take Williams she has the game to...

    2019 Wimbledon - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    Just doing that won't include winning WTA Tennis events. As a Tennis non American fan I will say the great original story of the Williams sisters quickly turned sour and overall has been a huge negative for women's Tennis. Sporting integrity counts for far more than any individual.

    2019 Wimbledon - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    All links together she can't run no more and even losing 10kgs isn't going to bring back what comes to us all. I expect looking at Williams overall shape coming in heavy is a tactical decision, her arms and shoulders are huge she has been training. Her aim coming back is to compensate by getting...

    I think if she was going to win another one then the AO would be best opportunity. I think there was an injury there that contributed to that defeat. Although Pliskova should have won in straights but switched off as she tends to do.

    2019 Wimbledon - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    No her legs are gone and she can't get to the ball, when a clever player makes it difficult to play the big shot with the percentages on her side. Yes will still win a ball bash and intimidate those without full confidence but against top on form players she will lose EVERY time and easily.

    No reason why she can't add more. Finally, it has taken longer than it should but the whole package has come together.

    2019 Wimbledon - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    The Australian Open was a surface more suited to Williams, more pace and especially bounce. Simona got it right from the start, keep it low and work Williams, no easy balls. Soon she tired and the power was much reduced. No reason Simona with this mentality can't add to her slam tally. Great day...

    Wimbledon 2019 SF: Elina Svitolina (8) v Simona Halep (7)

    If it is Williams she can't run, if it is Strycova she can dictate like today, although Babs is serving better. Either way so long as Simona doesn't go back to heads gone mode she should win easy.

    Wimbledon 2019 SF: Elina Svitolina (8) v Simona Halep (7)

    She has won a lot of WTA events and played Tennis as good as anyone at her best. This season she has struggled with tondonitis in the knee and she really struggles to serve well and move as well as she did 18 months ago.

    Wimbledon 2019 SF: Elina Svitolina (8) v Simona Halep (7)

    Simona was superb there, just in total control. When you assess the whole package tactically, technically, emotionally I have never seen her better. It will be another straight set win in the final if she keeps her head.

    2019 Wimbledon - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    Like last year and every event she has played since returning, first quality TENNIS player she faces beats her. The slight niggle is Simona shows Williams too much respect. As for Svitolina at her best she could win this and she would relish playing Williams. Her serve is too weak though to beat...

    2019 Wimbledon - Women's Singles - General Discussion

    Wiliams legs have gone she can't run, any good player who sticks to the game plan will beat her. Get her head on, start properly and Halep can win just as easily as Kerber. The Courts are slow and low these days you talk as if it is Wimbledon of 20 years ago. Williams will soon tire she was...
