@YellowBalls I think Williams sisters are a league of their own, but I'm sure they'll be playing doubles this year, seeing that Olympics is next year.

Has anybody bothered noticing the 18 year old Kulichkova? She was the AO Junior champion last year and turned pro as well. This year she has been really playing consistent and well. She has a good serve and quite aggressive. I'm sure she'll make it top 50 this year. She has the tools and mentality to beat Giorgi tonight. Let's see :)

@UCanNotBeSerious @Silver Shadow umm, i was referring to Halep's statement made at Indian Wells when Serena withdrew before their semis. Halep was looking forward to them meeting in a match.

So here's an opportunity for her. Should be a fun match, if both come out with guns blazing

@jonmt1 Halep can be easily rushed like Clijsters. If they are rushed then they lose the match in a hurry.

At YEC 2014 finals, After a tough first set, Simona lost 6-0 in the second. If Serena can hold strong in the first set then its a clear victory for Serena unless she goes on a walkabout

Congratulations to Halep! She finally gets a shot at Serena! Good luck to both the ladies and hope we get a delicious treat of a match! :)

Petkovic and Carla in Miami semis! who would have thought that. But both are sweethearts and hope the best one wins

Instead of putting Venus down, give some credit to Carla. She played well and hung in the match. Her resurgence has been phenomenal. and he is slowly inching her way to top 10 again. Well done Carla.

the great thing is Williams sisters revolutionazied and redefined tennis. and the sad thing is, it'll die with their retirement, coz no one can play tennis like they do. Hope they stick around for 10 more years at least

So many of the young girls say they idolize Williams sisters but none of them have discipline or skills to emulate their idols.

Umm, didnt she play Azarenka in the 3rd round and then the defending Indian wells champion Penneta in 4th round at Indian Wells?

Serena will meet either Azarenka or Halep in the semis not the first few rounds. Besides does any current player(apart from Venus) have a remotely healthy win loss record against Serena?

like Steve said it best, Andy looked like he had no game plan whatsoever on the court today. Quite disappointing.

I'm thrilled to see Federer win. I just can't imagine had Federer retired by now, we would have been denied such a treat and a major transformation of Federer. I mean the net charging Federer is just new and more exciting. 

I'm sure Djoko and Federer will have a great finals tomorrow. May the best man win. Although fingers crossed for Federer XD

I had written yesterday that Maria would win in 2 tight sets. People were assuming Maria's form based on last year when she was at her inconsistent best.

But this year she has shown some real consistency and winning matches in straight sets unlike last year when she was hell bent on playing almost every match in 3 sets.

Vika like I have said before, will round out in perfect form by US summer hardcourt events and will definitely challenge Serena for the US Open title.

Good luck Maria. She has a great chance to make it to the finals against Serena :) 

And I must say I'm susrprised by a lot of results today

Keys losing to a struggling Jankovic

Bencic winning against the consistent Woz

Garcia winning against Ana(one step forward and 3 steps back)

Lesia(who is she?) against Cornet

Genie should reach semis, now that her draw has opened up real wide and if Sam has any good influence on her, should challenge and even beat Maria.

@softpoise Haha! you are funny. Serena will be fine. And I'm sure, Vika who has beaten Serena in the past knows how to play and win against her. So Sascha hitting with Vika would not make much of a difference, except that Vika will have more fun during practice like Serena did with him :)

i don't see Wozniacki or Azarenka beating Maria at Indian Wells. If they are judging Maria based on last years inconsistent performance then they are sadly mistaken. 

Only a superior performance by Maria's opponent can beat her, else I don't see anyone stopping Maria until the finals. Looks like a Serena/Maria dominance until Wimbledon. Vika will rise at US Summer hardcourt season.

@colin561 Yes, I believe that to be the reason why BZS gave the look to Venus. And I find it funny all the posters below fighting over who has better sportsmanship. Venus was probably lost in her hard fought victory and it didnt register to her that the loser should shake the umpire's hand first and was moving ahead of BZS, but Venus did let her opponent shake hands with umpire first. Venus and BZS are both great sportsperson. But Venus without a doubt, no one in the history of WTA can match, NO ONE.

Maria has lost to Serena 17 times. People keep highlighting this. But as Maria said that she reaches that stage where she keeps meeting Serena, and that's great in itself. How many players can say that they have met Serena so many times in their career. I think Venus is the only player

But I don't find it embarrassing for Maria to lose against Serena. I mean seriously Vika, Na and Petra have terrible record against Serena at majors and outside as well.

Serena is the best player ever. She started competing against Vicario, Seles, Graf then moved on to henin, clijsters and Venus and now playing against Maria, Vika, Petra and twinkies. Love her <3

Great match. 40+ winners by both of them and only 20 or so unforced errors. Maria surprisingly hit less double faults. Only 3 If I'm not wrong. That helped her stick around in the match.

In the second set Maria was playing catch up to Serena, never had the chance to take a lead.

Congrats to Serena!!! 19th major and counting. And my first prediction of the year has come true.

AO Serena.

FO Halep

Wimbledon Kvitova

USO Serena

Maria won't win a major this year, it's an odd year

Interesting quarters between Maria and genie. But I give an upper hand to Maria, this match will be on her racquet. Let's see what she decides to do.

Happy to see Rafa do well. Although I'm a big fan of Rog, I still like how Rafa rebounds from injuries with grit and determination.

Halep and makarova won't be that fun. I'll assume makarova will be choking

Hope Murray wins :)
