Cool Athens Round of 16 Predictions

(1) BEL HENIN-HARDENNE vs. AUS PRATT (Pipsqueak Fight)

Are my the only person that is surprise that Pratt is even in the round of 16? Her run will end her at the hands of the Justinator ... Justine will embarass Pratt 6-0, 6-2.


FRA PIERCE vs. (6) WILLIAMS (Big Babe Battle)

Well the last time they met at RG Venus rocked Mary on a surface that suits Mary better so I don't think the story will be any different this time. Venus will win 6-3, 6-3.


(3) RUS MYSKINA vs. GRE DANIILIDOU

Hometown girl found her game in time to win 2 rounds in her home Olympics ... I think this will go three sets since Myskina was shaky today and Eleni will be inspired but I don't think Eleni will be able to pull off the upset.

(11) ITA SCHIAVONE vs. COL ZULUAGA

Too close to call - I will go w/ Zuluaga in a tight 3 setter.

(8) JPN SUGIYAMA vs. (12) CRO SPREM

Time for Ai to get revenge for Montreal ... She dug deep against Zheng and she will have to do alot of retrieving here to track down K-Lina's blasts but I expect Ai to prevail Ai to win in 3.

USA RAYMOND vs. AUS MOLIK (Underachiever Tussle)

Well this will be a battle of two players trying to get to net ASAP ... will probably be a good match to watch that differs from all the groudie wars. Molik will come out on top in 3 - she has more confidance in big matches.

(5) RUS KUZNETSOVA vs. (10) SUI SCHNYDER

I think Sveta will be slightly bothered by Patty's spin but will overpower Patty to win in 2 tight sets.

(16) USA RUBIN vs (2) FRA MAURESMO

Chanda has a good run but Amelie is brimming w/ confidence right now. Amelie easily in straight sets.

I am almost convinced that some freakish accident will take out either Justine or Venus.

I browse once in a while.

Maybe, maybe not. Good luck to both... but it is my prediction, which is what the thread is calling for.

I hope it's a great match with the better player winning on that day. That's all we can hope for.

Henin def. Pratt 6-1; 6-2

Williams def. Pierce 6-0; 6-1 (Mary sucks against power players)

Danilidou def. Myskina 5-7; 7-6; 6-4 (the homecrowd coupled w/ Myskina's recent suckiness should pull Eleni through)

Schiavone def. Zuluaga 7-6; 6-4

Sprem def. Sugiyama 6-0; 6-4

Raymond def. Molik 7-6; 3-6; 6-4

Schnydef def. Kuznetsova 6-4; 7-5 (I just have this feeling...)

Rubin def. Mauresmo 6-4; 5-7; 6-3 (another gut instinct)

Romney/Ryan 2012

Hello Mr!!! Been meaning to say how glad I am Sprem has really come up in the last few months...you must be a happy camper!

Justine vs Nicole : Nicole annoyed Justine in the first set at the AO the last match I remember them playing...I'm predicting Justine to run away with it after a close first set.

Mary vs Venus: It's the Olympics...Venus in 2

Myskina vs Eleni: If Eleni takes the first set I think she will upset in 2 sets...if Myskina grabs the first I think she will take it in 3...home crowd counts for alot.

Sciavone vs Zuluaga: Zuluaga in 2

Ai vs Sprem: will be 3 sets but I think Sprem will win. (had to say that...didn't want a foot up my backside hehe )

Lisa vs Alica: Being a huge Molik fan...I'm kinda nervous about this match...conditions are going to mean everything in this match IMO. If it's blustery then Lisa is one of the last people you want to play with her experience. I still say Alicia in 3

Patty vs Kuz: Svetlana in 3 sets...I think...don't really know with this one

Mauresmo vs Chanda: Mauresmo comfortably I think.


****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******

You people give Chanda no credit. Wasn't Amelie also brimming with confidence after Philadelphia at the YEC. Maybe you don't realize but Chanda leads their head to head 3-1, and Amelie hasn't beaten Chanda in three years. You're going to be pleasantly surprised
