S. Williams vs Errani by Tennisguy

S.-Williams
VS
Errani
This is a quarterfinal match from the French Open tournament between Serena Williams and Sara Errani..

 

They have met 8 times and all the meeting where won by Serena. That being said in their last meeting on clay at the Fed Cup Errani did manage to put up a good fight even though she did lose 4-6, 7-6(3), 6-3. Also Williams with the exception of her first match here she has always lost the first set here at the French Open and I think that could possibly be the case today as well.

 

Errani has defeated Riske 7-6(1), 2-6, 6-0, Witthoeft 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, Petkovic 6-3, 6-3 and Goerges 6-2, 6-2. She had a pretty though start with some problems here and there but got better in the 3d and 4th round so I am hoping she will be even better now. I don't think she can actually win this meeting because Williams always finds way to regroup when she is in though situations and when that happens Errani won't be able to handle that much power.

 

Williams defeated Hlavackova 6-2, 6-3, Friedsam 5-7, 6-3, 6-3, Azarenka 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 and Stephens 1-6, 7-5, 6-3. She was very sluggish in the first set of her last 3 matches and I think Errani could take advantage of that if it happens again.

 

To me the most likely scenario is that Errani will take the first set but even if that doesn't happen overall she has the ability to take a set form Williams and the odds for her doing that are very good.pin

There's no bolder bet against Serena than one on Errani or Suarez Navarro, no matter which Serena's condition is.
This is the kind of match that is more likely to finish with 2-4 games for Errani.
That match in Fed Cup can never be a landmark, as Serena repeatedly stated that it was the match that showed her she was not prepared for the claycourts at the moment.
Serena's elbow is a problem, but Errani has a bigger one: she's totally outpowered here.
Serena's gonna have service games both on her service and on Sara's.

Serena just wants to repeat Sharapova's performance from last year's Roland Garros when she always came back after losing the first set. She's only having some fun ;).
