Poll - 3rd round,(2)Amelie Mauresmo vrs (16)Chanda Rubin

Amelie has just crushed Camerin of Italy 6-0 6-1 in just over 50 mins. Amelie hammered down 8 aces in the match!! Looks like Chanda really has her work cut out for her tomorrow but Chanda has won their last 2 encounters, most famously at the WTA Championships last November where she beat Amelie in a tight three-setter. So, who do you think is gonna win this match tomorrow, I'd give the edge to Chanda coz I think out of the current top 10 players, she just about has the confidence to beat Amelie. Good luck tomorrow Chanda!!

Amelie in 2. Something like 6-2 6-1. The Chanda of the 2003 YEC is leagues ahead of the Chanda of now.

Exclamation

Of course I want Chanda to win, but I think Amelie will win this one easily, mainly becasue Chanda's serve is suspect.

Chanda always beats Mauresmo and Mauresmo can't take advantage of openings in draws...Chanda will win...

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

As much as I like both players, I think this match is in Momo's hand. She's hardly chokes anymore lately. I would say Momo in 2 sets. Something like 6-2 6-4. But come on Rubin, prove me something.

Momo was rusty a few weeks ago, but she seemed to wash that rust out in Canada as the tournament progressed. Now she is playing really good tennis. Chanda is awesome, but she is still not in her greatest form. Momo in two.

hmmm, maybe Vee and Chanda need some time apart from each other for the time-being

Not really. Momo is a very different player than Venus. The problem is that usually when Chanda is playing well she is the attacker and charges the net. I think that works well when you are playing someone who likes to be in control--you are putting pressure on them. But Momo has so much touch and will be able to come out with those passing shots from nowhere. This will be a tough match for Chanda...one I doubt she can win.
