Nick’s Picks- Women’s Semis at the US Open

Victoria Azarenka Vs. Flavia Pennetta 

Pennetta is a magician on the court. She has a pretty darn good serve, but can not match power with power against Azarenka. She must be ready to jump on any defensive ball that Azarenka hits. Azarenka will move Pennetta around. This match will be power vs. finesse. The match will be interesting, but unless Azarenka makes a series of unforced errors she will win the match.

Azarenka must play aggressively but can not go for outright winners.

Nick’s Pick- Azarenka


Li Na Vs. Serena Williams 

This will be a very interesting match. Li Na is very confident and very smart. She stands close to the baseline and hits the ball very flat. She forces her opponent to overhit. Serena is power personified. This match will be sheer power. Serena will try to move Li Na around. This will not be an easy match but Serena wins.

Nick’s Pick- Serena
