What goes on Chap's..........?
Williams v Wiliams
- Neither of the sisters dropped any set so far in the tournament with Venus losing only 15 games and Serena 14 all through their four matches in U.S. Open 2008 so far.
- Serena Williams suffered only one service break till fourth round, while Venus conceded three service breaks through four matches until now.
- Since Wimbledon to U.S. Open 2008, Venus Williams has not lost any set, while younger sister Serena lost only two sets which came against Venus in the final of Wimbledon this year.
Both sisters are not happy with facing each other in the quarter final, but will be determined to win. They pair of them are flying at the moment but I must side with Serena as she will be looking to take revenge. Obviously wouldn’t surprise to see Venus come out on top so games over might be the safe option.
I’ll take Serena @ 1.70 to take a 4-3 H2H lead against her sister
Murray v Del Potro
Scotland’s Andy Murray and Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro play for the first time since their fiery encounter in Rome earlier this year. The last time Murray and Del Potro met, Del Potro left the court in tears, Murray left in a fury.
With no apparent love lost between the two men, they each employed some gamesmanship tactics. Murray was angry that Del Potro hit a ball at him but did not apologize. Del Potro retailiated by making a snide remark about Murray’s mother Judy, who was in the stands cheering her son on. Del Potro eventually retired from the match with a back problem.
Whether there will be fireworks on the court remains to be seen, but I reckon Murray has the cleaner groundstokes to come out on top in a close match.
Take Murray 3-1 and 3-2 (should equate to around 2.20) (today's lock)
Good Luck to all
