It started with her defeat against Roberta Vinci in the semi-finals of the US Open last year and she then went on to lose in the final of the Australian Open and the French Open.
We expected her to win the French Open and she faltered in the final against Garbine Muguruza, so that has given everyone else hope.
She needs to get to Serena psychologically because if Serena gets off to a fast start in the final and gets flowing, then it could be one-way traffic.
It is intriguing because Angelique beat Serena at the Australian Open and if anyone can do it, then it is her.
She got to the semi-finals here back in 2012, so she knows her way around a grass court.
But this is her first Wimbledon final and you never know how someone is going to react.
This was the 53rd consecutive major in which at least one of the semi-finalists had won at least one major prior to the tournament.
So far during the tournament there does not appear to be any jitters or demons working in the background but even Serena knows it is lurking in the background and her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, has said he expects it to present itself again at some point. It is just comes down to whether Angelique can get the match to that point where she creates pressure moments for Serena.It took her quite a few games to come to terms with the pace of Venus in the semi out there yesterday.But once she did, I thought she was playing it quite safe in the middle of court.It is not going to be easy but if anyone can make Serena play and extend the rallies, it is probably Angelique.There are so many points when you think she is completely out of it and somehow she gets herself there and then has the good hands to improvise and keep herself in the point with enough depth or enough angle.
