Patty Schnyder vs. Lisa Raymond

I think this is one of the most entertaining match-ups on the tour.
Both are magicians on the court. When they are on, we may see the match of the tournament. We're guaranteed so many entertaining points whoever is going to win.
I like both them and so it's hard to take a side. But since Lisa impressed me so much with her win over Venus, I will cheer for Lisa this time.
But either way, may it be a great match!

I know Patty hasn't won yet. I'm just assuming she's gonna win.
I don't want a Dechy/Lisa QF match.

Having said that, this is the least likely QF match to be televised, isn't it?
Neither of them is a big name for casual tennis fans.. what a shame!

This should be a fun match. Too bad we have very little chance of seeing it on TV.

Lisa will win 6-2 6-2.

Lisa will cause Patty to play like she does the usual 51 weeks out of the year.

Let's just say the serve's this week are "hot, hot, hot". Lisa would be
lucky to get a Calvin Klein scent strip sniff off the Patty first serves
this week.

this match has the potential to be a classic, 2 veteran players fighting to make their first GS semifinal, 2 of the most varied and interesting stylists on tour. And i'll be a monkey's uncle if we get to see any more than 2 or 3 points of it on TV.

patty leads the head 2 head 4-0. raymond is going to run out of steam IMO, whereas after 2 poor performances patty is now in her groove and raymond will not know how to handle her IMO.

of course patty could get trounced. it's all up to her whether or not she's going to make her first slam semi

lol I don't know if I'd call Patty a veteran of the tour *just* yet ; )
And it's true that come Wednesday Patty could be a very different player as she certainly seems a chameleon out on court at the best of times,but this week she has really impressed me.
Her last two matches have been won in straight sets & she hasnt done her bad habit of letting one set slip,only to fight it out in a grudge match in the 3rd set.So my $$$ is def. most on Patty.And I bet this will be televised too : )

Well I agree and disagree.
I don't think the outcome of the match will be up to Patty alone. Lisa is also the kind of player who controls a match. Both are very streaky and if neither of them manages to bring their A game, the match could be an error fest. On the other hand, it could be a classic. Saying it's all up to Patty is just not true. Lisa may have a bad record against Patty but I'm sure Lisa isn't the same Lisa she used to be. She had a lopsided record against Venus before she notched that win and the same may very well happen here.
