Topic: Will Muguruza win Wimbledon,,???

Venus appears at the top of her game but Garbine looks confident and most importantly can hold serve...

Re: Will Muguruza win Wimbledon,,???

It should be a tight match, Venus has been serving and playing so well but Muguruza is peaking at the right time and with her serve should be able to keep things close. My biggest worry for Venus would be nerves especially being so close to another title. She started nervy in Australia (so did Serena) though I don't know how much of that was being back in a slam final and how much was playing Serena.

I think Venus is a slight favorite but a Muguruza win wouldn't shock me at all. Should be a great match

Re: Will Muguruza win Wimbledon,,???

Venus handles power hitters pretty well, as her last 3 matches attest.
Muguruza has had more defensive players in her last 3 matches...

Venus leads the h2h 3-1 with Muguruza's only victory coming on clay

Muguruza is younger, playing only her 3rd slam final, whereas Venus is in her 16th.  Older players usually get nervous more easily

Good point about the older players, it's one thing that would worry me for Venus and more particularly Federer

Great win for Muguruza - Next consistent major repeat champion..???

Re: Will Muguruza win Wimbledon,,???

I'll be honest: I'll be very surprised if Mugu ever wins a hard court Slam.  She just doesn't have the consistency.  But who knows?  She has two Slams to her name, now!  Maybe this is the beginning of her just going nuts and blowing players off the court.  Since I'm a fan of hers, I'd like to see it.  I just don't know if I can trust her yet.

Re: Will Muguruza win Wimbledon,,???

She's had some success on hard courts, winning Beijing and making a Wuhan final. I favor her game more on grass or hardcourts but see no reason why she couldn't win a hardcourt slam if she gets hot. I wouldn't bet it or trust it but see no reason why it can't happen

Re: Will Muguruza win Wimbledon,,???

In the current WTA landscape, I think it's possible for Muguruza to win the next 3 Slams in a row.  She has the game for it.  I just don't think it's likely.

Besides, we all know who's winning the US Open: 17-year-old wild card entrant Claire Liu!  That's right: main draw time!
Actually, if she could even just win one round that would be wonderful.

More like adoption papers.  That kid is my pride and joy.  She's the future of my tennis fandom all the way.

Let's reserve the wedding license for Petra, m'kay?  (ever since Zheng Jie betrayed me)
