Both players are in form. Williams who had amazing US run winning the most of the tournaments, losing only one match and four overall on hard court this season. Trashed every single player in straight sets victory without any issues. The biggest battle was arranged against hard hitting players, in here case was Stephens. So far, almost excellent grand slam. While, Na Li stared to play better with the new coach and the results comes faster that was expected. Great tournaments lately, big imrovment in her game and the position on WTA list which gaves her the motivation to produce even batter tennis overall. Only five lost games on hard court this seasons, need to mention that most of them were on the begging of the season. Pretty confortable draw so far, winning the games in straight sets easily expecily the last one where lost the second set in tie break. Overall, great efforts by Na Li.
I will try to pick up a valuable pick for me, IMO. I don’t rather Williams as such a big favourite and of course, not against fighter. She’s leading by 8-1 in H2H meetings but since 2009, Williams always had a very dangerous matches against Na Li and honestly, bit of lucky was almost always on here side. This 2-0 wins doesn’t showing the reality, expecialy the last clash in Cincinnati where Na Li was serving twice to confirm the sets.
