The summer of Serena Williams continues (U.S. Open women's predictions)


Remember that post I wrote a bit ago about Serena Williams running through the summer's big events?

Yeah, look for that to continue through the U.S. Open, which is mere minutes away from starting. But I'm expecting her to face maybe a not-so-expected finalist in the title match, and this time it should be the opposite of what happened last year.

So here you go, the Tennis Talk, Anyone? Grand Slam predictions, U.S. Open edition:

Round of 16
Victoria Azarenka (1) vs. Sabine Lisicki (16)
Li Na (9) vs. Samantha Stosur (7)
Maria Sharapova (3) vs. Nadia Petrova (19)
Marion Bartoli (11) vs. Petra Kvitova (5)
Carol Wozniacki (8) vs. Ana Ivanovic (12)
Maria Kirilenko (14) vs. Serena Williams (4)
Venus Williams vs. Christina McHale (21)
Urszula Radwanska vs. Agnieszka Radwanska (2)

Quarterfinals
Azarenka vs. Na
Sharapova vs. Kvitova
Ivanovic vs. S. Williams
V. Williams vs. A. Radwanska
