Serena leads the head to heads 11-6. Their most recent meeting was at the US Open in 2015, Serena won in 3 sets.
I would love to say this is going to be a great match but I think we have to wait for the men’s final for that. Serena started the tournament serving poorly and a title maybe
didn’t look to be on but she still didn’t drop a set. Her easy win over Konta in the quarter final perhaps gave the biggest indication of how well she is playing.
Venus has had an amazing tournament but I think this one is over in 2 sets. Her 3 set win over in form Coco Vandeweghe will have taken a lot out of her.
Serena needs 1 more Grand Slam to beat Steffi Graf’s record. Nerves have slowed her down in her pursuit of that record in several of the most recent slams. Maybe we get a slow start from her today.
No value at the start. I’ll back Serena if Venus somehow takes the 1st set.
