Serena leads the H2H 5-1 (2-1 at majors), with Sloane's only win coming at the 2013 AO, and Serena then got payback at the 2013 USO. They've not played since 2015 RG, so it's been a good while for any fans out there!

Is Sloane in any kind of form to challenge Serena? Will this match-up spark some motivation in her? I sure hope so, but I don't hold much faith so I'm going with Serena in 2 something like 7-5 6-2.

The poll on this thread should have been "How many pages will we reach until this thread gets deleted?" :p Anyway, hoping for a civil discussion of the actual tennis.

She'll break back here most likely, but yea she does not look match tough and looks slow out there.

Serena is pressing here and panicking soon in the rallies. Not a good sign. She needs to settle herself and try to construct points.

Boom, Sloane takes the first. This looks pretty lopsided.

(edited out my commentary on the music, because it didn't help anything. @weakera, feel free to retract the like :) )
 
Serena’s movement is non existent. She can’t expect to win on just her serve. She has to move her feet.

Patrick Mouratoglou said he worked with Serena on her serve during the break? Work on her damn footwork, not her serve! IDIOT.

I don't even like Serena, but this p*sses me off!
 
I may be wrong, but I think Serena’s chances at winning another major are getting slimmer and slimmer. She is almost 40, she’s had a baby via cesarean section, and her fitness just hasn’t been regained that I can tell. Then again, she still has power, placement and experience. If she could improve her speed that might just be the ticket. Guess time will tell.

I think Serena was more fit in Australia and has put back on some of the weight she lost during the lockdown.

Players are not fearing for her anymore

Have to 100% agree on that.

He worked on her serve? I can't tell since she is hardly getting any free points off of it.

Sloane is just hitting to the open court for clean winners. She doesn't need to hit the lines for winners. Serena doesn't look match ready at all. If the rally starts, she's just out there confused. I like both but this doesn't seem to be a dramatic or tactical match at all. Sloane is doing good just moving her around the court and not trying to do too much.
