Chanda Rubin (USA) vs. Anastasia Myskina (RUS): Who will win?

They've had a pretty dead even head-to-head, they are basically equals with Myskina having a bit more power on her strokes. The last time they played was in the Australian Open where Chanda was dismissed 6-7 6-2 6-2, although that wasn't the best tennis from Chanda. Anastasia has found new confidence but hasn't been playing that well since Roland Garros. Who will win?

Myskina will win. No Russian has lost in San Diego this week. Except in an all-Russian match.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Chanda has a much better serve than Myskina and hits a little bit harder, but Myskina mixes it up well. Hard to tell... I'll give the slight edge to Myskina because Chanda has played so few matches, however never forget that Chanda can play brilliantly on any given day.

Chanda's got the bigger forehand, Myskina the bigger backhand. Both are very quick and move well around the court. Both can also be pretty streaky. Anastasia can mix things up with the best of 'em, but I'm hoping Chanda takes this one by pressuring Myskina and getting to net.

Good luck to both girls. Get back to the top 20, Chanda!

Myskina will thrash her.

Speaking of Nastya vs. Chanda at the Aussie Open this year, those last two sets from her in that match were the best two sets I've ever seen her play. Pure gold on the backhand.

Chanda will prevail in 3 tough sets... Ever since winning the French Myskina has been dissapointing and hasnt really lived up to that post-Grand Slam hype. Although both players are phenomenal and anyone can take it, I think Chanda is the one out to prove something, and judging by the high level of play she's had this tourney and the closeness of their previous matches, I'm gonna go with a Rubin win.

Prediction:

Chanda Rubin d. Anastasia Myskina 4-6, 7-6, 6-4

CHANDA RUBIN


7 Career Singles Titles, 10 Career Doubles Titles, 2 Time French Open Quarter-Finalist, Australian Open Semi-Finalist, United States Fed Cup Team 1995-97, 1999, 2003, 2004. United States Pan American Team 1995. United States Olympic Team 1996, 2004.


GO CHANDA!!!!!!


GO SERENA, GO VENUS, GO SHENAY, GO MASHONA

Well, she's only played one event since the French Open, Chandafan13. I wouldn't say just yet that she hasn't live up to the post-Slam hype.

Post slam hype? All I heard was how she didn't deserve to win . Chanda could definitly win this on a good day, as she can beat almost anyone when she is on, but Myskina has the mental fortitude to weather through Chanda's usual streakiness. I think Myskina will take it in three.

There was a TON of post slam hype. Suddenly all the news reporters were saying that Venus wouldn't get through her section w/ Myskina in the draw, as if that were a factor at all in Venus not getting through. Also, the news casters talk about her like she is a legitimate threat to take the US Open or something, like she is the current best player in the world. At the same time, they down talk Sharapova and say that she is too young to live up to the expectations, and that she won't back it up.

Good Luck to Myskina!

I would really like to see her consolidate her RG win with some great results this summer. So that people will FINALLY stop underestimating her!

She is a MUCH better player than most people give her credit for!
