Zurich: Venus Williams v. Karolina Sprem

Hmmmm...Venus should be out for revenge, and Karolina's been struggling lately. Venus SHOULD win this match. I'll pick Venus in 3 sets since Venus has been struggling, too.

If Venus wins this, she's through to the semis. Sharapova hasn't played anyone in the top 50 since she lost to Kuznetsova in China. She's collected some lower tier tourneys, but as Venus (hopefully) progresses through the tourney, she should get better. I'm really looking forward to Venus v. Golovin!

Vamos Vee
I really hope she'll take this match seriously. If so, I think she's gonna win. Can't wait to see it couse both of matches played by them before are just classic.

I so hope Venus can win this! GO VENUS!!!! I don't know why she struggles with Sprem? Sprem has had some terrible losses! One of those great tennis mysteries!

Well as a fan, I certainly HOPE she wins but after last week I must admit I don't have a lot of confidence. Especially with this draw. These are exactly the kinds of players that Vee has struggled against: good players with weapons! Hopefully, last week was a shock to her system and she can pull it together and have a good week. If not, than I'm looking forward to January and Australia when things will finally come back together for her.!
