Vintage Serena Is Back and Should Win Stanford
Marion Bartoli (#9) and Serena Williams (#169) are squaring off in the finals of Stanford 2011. From the looks of it, Serena should win the title. She blitzed through Anastasia Rodionova (#105) in the first round with a zero-zero, then Maria Kirilenko (#25) took a set from her in the second set. She then only gave another Grand Slam champion, Maria Sharapova, four games in their quarterfinals. Then in the semifinals, she gave Wimbledon semifinalist Sabine Lisicki, only 3 games.
Marion on the other hand had a retirement over Ayumi Morita in the quarters and a walkover over Dominika Cibulkova in the semi's, so she's really fresh for a bruising fight with Serena. Anyway, let's see how this pans out.
