One more match, cmon GOAT !!
Serena will need to get to 25 gs to be officially the greatest of all time. That is why she is still playing. She wants to get to 25! If she only gets to 24 gs then their will always be a debate between Serena and Margaret Court!! Even tho they played in different eras.

It’s like steffi Graf’s 22 gs titles and Monica Seles 9 gs titles. If Monica did not get stabbed in Germany at 19 in 1993 she could of been on her way to be greatest of all time. She at that stage had won 7 out of the last 8 gs she had played in and was starting to get on top of steffi in the big matches. Unfortunately when Monica returned to the games 2 years later she was overweight and was no way near the mentally tough player we saw from 1991 to 1993! She spent most of her comer Ranked between 2 to 6 from 1996-2002 with only 1 grand slam victory and 3 grand slam final runner ups.

Anyway Serena will win easily if she serves well! If she serves poorly like at Wimbledon and US opens last years then her game falls apart and Simona will be too solid and will win. The match all depends on Serena’s serve and her nerves. As Martina Navratilova has said it gets harder to close out big matches when you are older as you suffer more from nerves. When your younger you don’t fear anything. All the pressure is on Serena Which is good for Simona as Simona especially at the French has struggled except for in 2018 as in the last 4 years she has gone into the tournament as the warm favourite. I hope Simona wins but she needs to do what kerber Did. Stay way back on the first serve get a high percentage of Serena’s first serves back in play and then Serena starts to panic because Serena relies on short points. If the rallies are long then Simona wins as she will just move Serena from side to side in the rallies. H2H is 7-1 Serena’s way but their last 3 matches have been very long 3 setters with the only difference being Serena’s serve.

Well I did say at the US last year she would never get a better chance to win another slam. Turns out she has got one.

She can't even move and they can't touch her. The entire women's tour should hang their heads in shame.

How bloody hard is it for the women to beat Serena, all they need to do is get her running around the court and she's beat. Not really that hard
She has played 1 player in the top 29 to reach the final. It's not really confusing or hard to work out. Federer is almost 38 and still smacking opponents.

If Serena serves well she is hard for any opponent, bar a few, to beat.

I'm in Halep's corner as well. I've been really impressed with Halep at this tournament although I don't think she has been serving particularly well throughout but would love her to take the title on Saturday. I will have to record it and watch it on Sunday. Was also pleased that she was first on court.

In Haleps corner. Love me some Halep.

agree with everything gopies just said. Serena served well in the semi but her opponent was outmatched and looked injured. Going to be interesting to see how Halep plays it.

Artificial it may well be but Federer still has fitness levels and court movement to a professional standard. Completely different.
