Question Semifinal #2: Mauresmo vs. Molik

They say lightning can't strike twice, but I am impressed with the way Molik played today and if she plays that way tomorrow and Amelie struggled like she did in the first two sets of her match today, expect Molik to go on to the gold medal round. If Molik plays bad and Amelie plays well, Amelie will win.

I would pick Amélie, but I have to say that I didn't saw the girls playing at the Olympics. It's just my feeling...

I think it depends on what's going on between Amelie's ears. No. 1 and a Gold Medal approaching, we could see a meltdown, or because this isn't a typical tournament, she could be fine. Interesting semifinals!

Whitney Houston and her receipts:

As I said before, the stats are crap. Besides, you are wrong if you think that you can make predictions only based on stats.

Alicia has a great shot at this. The surface is good for her, and she's brimming with confidence. We'll see how Amelie responds to the situation.
