This is very predictable. If Serena Williams doesn’t pick up her play she will lose in straight sets once again. I bet Serena wishes it was bencic she was playing right now.

The kid is holding up well... She is not backing down under the pressure. I hope she can keep it up for another set!

Serena lost her confidence in finals. The loss to Kerber really shaked her confidence in these situations.

Serena has never had someone across the net consistently overpower her.

Even when Venus matches her power it's usually an unforced error fest.

Bianca is absorbing Serena's power and playing beautiful angles.

Man, I thought this was going to be a rout with Williams taking it in straight sets. But now, I think it is the other way. I simply don't understand Serena. She has absolutely zero energy since the first ball. She has had this issue repeatedly for I don't know how many years now.

She gets all pumped up and excited for everything but a final match. Then all of a sudden, she's walking around the court moping... I mean it is almost so bad that I would say she almost should get a lack of effort violation. Jeezus.

Bianca played so up and down the last two matches and now she is returning like Ivanovic did in her FO match w/ Serena. odd

So fascinating to see a WTA player who is not intimidated by Serena's power and is giving it all back to her.

Her returns are going deep and forcing Serena to go for smaller margins on serve and she's missing a lot of first serves.

Where are those people who said Bianca’s serve was her liability? She has as many aces as Serena and just served one on BP. I swear it’s as if people were blind.
Bianca got broken by TT, you wanna tell me that she’s a better returner than SW?

She’s serving way better today than thus far in the tournament.

I thought Halep was stunning in her win over Serena. But this girl so far seems determined to produce something similar.

Serena just can't control her nerves in GS finals these days. :(
She might be nervous (those DF are certainly atypical), but she's being throughly outplayed by Andreescu. She's out-serving her and being super aggressive with a gigantic depth of shot, variations of spin and wicked angles, making Serena look out of balance most of the time. She doesn't have the speed and, as consequence, the footwork to make her groundstrokes fly.
