Who will triumph?
Do we really know? H2H is 17-12 in favor of Serena but, in their last meeting, earlier this year at IW, Venus prevailed in straight sets. Decent run for Serena at W but has not done all that well since the SF there. Venus (QF) fared much better in San Jose than Serena (1-6, 0-6 1R loss to Jo Konta). Serena lost in 1R in Cincy to Petra K. Venus lost in 2R to Simona H in Montreal.... hopefully Kuznetsova will take out Williams because if she plays her sister we know who will win. The game could do without more of that.
Nice, I really enjoy Patty's GIANT backswing, her strut, and the way she seems to relish sliding on the clay. Very quick feet as well back in the day. Hope she's recovered some of those skills.Sharapova and Schnyder played one hell of the match at the French Open in 2007.
Serena lost 2R against Petra playing pretty good tennis. I would definitely favor her over Venus, she’s the one in better form right now.Do we really know?

Perhaps Serena will be in better shape next week than she has been for the past month. Who knows? But yeah, let’s hope the sisters don’t meet in 3R next week. Their meetings, much more often than not, have been uninspired — even painful to watch at times.
Tues nite.Is Sharapova playing monday or tuesday?
You could be right. Could be a tough one for Venus to survive. Kooz has had a better Summer than Venus. If V is serving well it will be a close contest. She also has more fire power but Kooz-net is the better mover. If Svetlana is serving better than Venus, she’ll likely take it in 3.What makes you think Venus will get through R1.Kuznetsova has been playing really well.She will take out venus for sure
The rain delays, double match days (Montreal & Cincy) and Heat took its toll on Simona in the Cincy final. Did very well to win Canada and then reach the Cincy final the following wknd. Nobody, not even Serena in her better days, has won both of these back-to-back. This was actually the 2nd year that Simona has been in both finals. She fared better this time. Halep wisely pulled out of New Haven to lick her wounds (right Achilles tendon) and rest up for tennis in NY. Tough test in 1R for her.I have a feeling this one will somehow fall on Wozniacki's lap, like the AO.
And the stupid decision by Halep of going all out in Cincinnati (and failing to win) will probably come back to bite her in the arse.
Serena, Venus, Garbine & Kaia Kanepi are all in Simona’s quarter of the draw. Sloane is in her half. Maria’s biggest threats up to the QF are Caro Garcia, Jelena O and Maddy Keys.i voted for halep, she seems to be in the best form lately
hoping for Maria to go deep, she doesnt have tought draw but there is this Garcia girl
Venus beat her in their last meeting IW 2017What makes you think Venus will get through R1.Kuznetsova has been playing really well.She will take out venus for sure
Their IW match was good this year. Agree about last years AO finalI'd rather Serena vs Kuzzy to be honest. Nothing against Venus but whenever the sisters play lately it's like some weird dance around each other that doesnt give much.
