Re: Wimbledon QF : AMG & VRP def Makarova&Kleybanova 6: 4, 7:5
I agree. When I saw the draw I thought AMG/VRP would exit early on but now I really think they have a good chance to make the final. If Stosur is as erroneous as she was in the first set yesterday and Medina is as solid from the baseline and Ruano is volleying well, they stand a real chance, although I'd make the Aussies the marginal favourite because of the surface and Stosur's serve.
I'm probably in the minority but I'm looking forward to the doubles semi-finals more than the men's singles semi-finals!
