I believe so, I think Maria is a lot more experience now than last year. She wont take it in 2 easy sets, but watch out I think she's got the stamine to take away a fight.

Then again, I haven't seen her play yet, and I didn't think she'd beat Vera, so maybe she's grown a brain and learnt how to run without falling over her own legs in the past two weeks.
Bitter Anyone? Seriously...you don't do the things Maria does without a brain...heck you can't play tennis without a brain...it's 90% mental pal.
Maria can definitely take any match he she plays her best...as far as her long legs go, she's only 17...she JUST stopped growing. So watch out cus her movement will only get more sleek.

Exactly! If Maria shows up with her A game...and say Lindsay has a bad day...Maria can take it. If Amelie lets her nerves get to her...Maria can definitely run away with that match.
...let's see what happens! But regardless BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THESE LADIES!
