    Unfortunately she had to drop out of the French Open but she looks to be going strong at Wimbledon and I'm rooting for her to take the Women's Singles.

    It's a lot easier to be #1 when the entire womens tennis association is made up of vastly inferior players

    Sort of like why Federer and Nadal continue to win at their ages

    think she would right at the top in the contender line. Just gotta watch her shoulder.

    i like watching the hungry ones, and the surprises.......Boris Becker was one before he went to the top of the mens, he wasn't even ranked before Wembleton, but everyone was amazed as his service, and he was extremely deadly on the grass....

    actually it isn't guess of the amount in the set, it's harder in the men's side cause of the 5 game rule, women's is only 3, women's side you have to win 2 out of 3, men's side you have to win 3 out of the 5.

    with Wimbledon....speed and power are key on the grass.....

    Federer isn't gonna last to long, Nadal too.......age and stress done to the body.....i would watch the lower people for upsets...

    Now it's getting exciting.
    She's made the semi-finals by beating Camila Giorgi 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
    She figured out the serve in the first set & it was all downhill for Italy after that. :wink:

    yep, she found that second serve kick.....basically with the spin she puts on it, it kicks further out moving the other play to open the opposite side.....she back.....let see how she does in the semi's....

    wonder if we can find any video of her opponent in the next round to see how she is....hmm

    It looks like she's slated to play 13th seed Julia Goerges of Germany.

    A quick video search turned up this.

    Bertens looks like she ran out of steam in that match, especially if you look at the score....1-6 to Julia. Julia has had some ruff matches too bring alot down to the wire....especially against that russian in the round of 32...

    best guess Serena in 3 sets, 2 if she plays serve and voley most of the time cause that what works in the grass..

    WOW

    Kevin Anderson rallied from two sets down to shock Roger Federer 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11

    bet that was a good match

    Serena Williams swept aside Julia Gorges in straight sets Thursday to book her place in the 2018 Wimbledon final.

    The 23-time Grand Slam singles winner won their semi-final 6-2, 6-4 in just 70 minutes to reach her 10th Wimbledon singles final.

    Serena in 2, knew i should have placed my bet....lol
