Bo3 match on GRASS. Does Serena win 1 game against Novak? or will it be 6-0 6-0 for Novak if both are playing seriously for 1 billion euro's.

What do you think. Could Serena snatch a game with her amaaaaazing serve?

On grass from 20 years ago: Maybe

On the green clay they use today: Hell no

If Serena is wearing a floral shirt then Djokovic is likely to choke 6-0 5-0 up.

All depends on how serious Djokovic takes it.
Serena can maybe get a couple of points, due to her big serve (needs to be big and accurate)
But to see her collecting a game against the #1 in ATP? Hell no!

The other thread is about amateurs speculating whether they'd win points against Nadal and probably in this thread people will speculate whether Serena would win POINTS against Djokovic . Some people do put themselves on a pedestal...

Don't think she'd win but people who think she wouldn't wins some games are deluded I think.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Well, difficult to say.

Nole is probably best returner of all time even if grass is not his best.

Key is he can take far less risk in returning than when playing Isner or Karlovic because he knows her second shot cannot hurt him like theirs could.
Even on grass, I guess difference with ground game is very huge.

She badly need Aces so if she is in a very good day and he on a very average one, why not one game.... or more

Serena could easily nick a game for sure. A couple of aces and a couple of UEs are all it would take. But what makes it tricky is that she would only have about 6 service game opportunities to do that in a single match.

I totally disagree. Are you saying Karlovic has a better groundgame than Serena?

I think Williams would win a game, maybe two. This is a pro that could rank well inside the ATP top 1000 probably. How often do you see double or triple bagels in pro matches, even when one player is low-ranked? Williams may be worse than the worst men that normally have a chance to face the world #1, but still I can't see a double bagel.

The only points she would win are the lucky ace serves... I doubt she will win 2 points in a row TBH.
6-0 6-0 and match to finish withing 30 mins

I think he meant their second serve is lethal too

Clearly nobody here watched the mixed doubles at Hopman Cup - The top women are a lot better than you think and were able to handle most of the men's serves without an issue - Serena would get a couple games for sure - and I would not bet against her being in the top 1000 of the atp - same for kvitova when she is playing well - like at Wimbledon 2014.

She would obv win 0 games.. it takes 4 points min. to win a game?
She could MAX hit 2 aces, if she is really really lucky.. 6 service games, in which her best has 2 Aces
Lets even assume that she hit 2 aces for 30-0.. she still has to win 2 more points.. so Djokovic returns and wins all points.. the margin of error for djokovic is huge.. she could hit 2 Aces and Djokovic 1 UE.. and Djo would still win the game.
