Archie's Picks: Williams-Wozniacki
Well, here we go with the match that everybody is dying to see. Who's the real No. 1? is all I have to say. And I guess we won't have to wait very much longer to have that question answered.
Without any further ado, here is Archie's pick for the Wozniacki-Williams US Open semifinal match.

Archie's Pick: Wozniacki
Why: Who knows what Archie is thinking this point. He's never had a thing for Golden Retrievers before, but apparently, he does now.
My Pick: Williams
Why: The moment that Marion Bartoli beat Serena at Wimbledon the US Open basically became a lock for her. In other words, hell hath no fury like Serena scorned. She's proved time and time again this summer that not only is she the best in the women's game at the moment: she might be better than ever. What does all that add up to? A very lopsided victory for a women who is dead set on winning her 14th Grand Slam title. Serena has oodles of the things that Wozniacki lacks: Power, the ability to control her service games with ease, and the a Grand Slam pedigree to die for. The only way I can see Wozniacki getting through in this one is if Serena plays a little too reckless and goes for winners too early. That's something that a lot of other players do against Wozniacki, but if I know Serena she's got her course plotted out already. If she needs to be patient, I suspect she will.
