Maria Sharapova! I think.

I thinks its really unfair to both girls that they have to face off in a 3rd round match ! I think Myskina will win but Sharapova could spring a suprise. Either way a great match is guaranteed !

If it was a quarterfinal, Myskina would be a sure bet, but so early in the tournament upsets are still very likely.

Sharapova in 2 sets:

I'd say 6-3 6-4

Watched some of Myskina this week and she's
lifted up the game since the Hopman Cup. Looking really sharp.
Also saw Maria, and she's really whacking the covers off the
little yellow ball. Based on experience and strategy, I'll give
the edge to Myskina. She'll try to breakdown the Maria game
by forcing her to do something other than smacking the ball
from the back.

Both being coached by Lansdorp, they must know each others game well.

Maria hits very hard on both her forehand and backhand which are very aggressive from what i have seen in Hong Kong, but I would give en edge to Anastasia's backhand and experience.
