Sharapova vs Pierce

OK there's already a thread like this but no poll. Here's the poll!

My bet is that Maria picks up her game a lot. I'm hedging two bets:

Normal amount of UE's: Maria wins 26 75 64
Low amount of UE's: Maria wins 64 62

Many people are giving Sharapova no chance. I am.

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

Very Very Close match but I think Sharapova will get her....she fights harder than Mary.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

It will be a great battle I'm sure.

If Maria picks it up, she wins....at this stage of their career she is better than Mary..but if Maria comes out and decides this is a walk in the park, she could be in for a rude awakening.

Always bet on black!

I really think Maria will win this easily, but then again, the last time i thought one of Mary Pierce's opponents would beat her easily(Venus) she lost, so who knows.

Interesting that more people thought that Jankovic would beat Sharapova, but now more people think Sharapova will beat Pierce...

I picked Mary in two.... based on Maria's first two rounds... but who knows like someone said she could pick it up right now and win. I like both players! Good luck ladies!!!

Pierce has been steamrollering her opposition up to now. If Maria can find a way of countering Pierce's power, and not get overwhelmed by it, then she has got the qualities to win.

I think hardcourt experience and power are on Mary's side. If she comes out of the block serving well (high first serve %) and clocking those returns, Sharapova has no chance as she'll be on her heels from the get-go. Plus, Maria's game seems like it would fit right into Mary's strike zone. I wonder if there's anyone left at Bollettieri who remembers how to coach a player on how to beat Mary Pierce...

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

If Mary plays well and keeps her UE's down, then she will win.

If Sharapova plays well, then Pierce has no chance at all, but that is a big IF.

Hmm...Maria could be the perfect opponent for Mary if Mary zones....bam, bam,bam but not much defence. Hmm, we all KNOW what Mary can do if she zones.....Maria better be on her toes.

Always bet on black!
