Lightbulb Dubai R16 Predictions

(1) Davenport def. (Q) Zheng - end of the road for Jie as she runs into Lindzilla
(7) Dechy def. Martinez - this will be a close match but Nathalie will pull it out

Bartoli (Q) def. (3) Myskina - Nastya is in terrible form and will collapse against a red hot Bartoli
Na Li (Q) def. (8) Schnyder - I am a little biased but I really think Na will take this one ... she took Patty to 3 close sets last week and is familiar with Patty's game now

Jankovic def. Farina Elia - Jelena coming back into form
(4) Kuznetsova def. Mirza - written and done

Hantuchova def. Likhotseva - 3 close sets between the lanky girls
Bovina def. (2) Serena - I have a feeling that Serena is not 100%

I agree with most of what you say.

I think Schnyder will beat Na Li - although it will be very tight.

I predicted Mirza to beat Kuznetsova and it is looking close so far - Sania is just coming back from a 3-0 deficit, so maybe.

I dont think Bovina can spring a surprise against Serena, but maybe.

I think that Daniela will breeze by Elena in straights..
And Do you think that Bovina is 100%..no.. Serena could beat her either way!! other than that.. i agree

Daniela Hantuchova : WaKe uP FrOm thiS NiGhTmArE!!!!
Serena Williams : Finally BaCk to HeR DoMiNaTiNg SeLF!! WhEn ShE's PLaYiNg!

Jelena Dokic : ShOw uS WhAt yOu CaN dO!

I agree, isn't Bovina coming back from injury? I mean she's only played a couple matches since (Linz??)...Serena will beat her.

Lena if at her best can beat almost anyone. She's a top 15 player and certain posters are treating her like shit in this thread.

Lindsay Davenport|Elena Bovina|Marissa Irvin|Tatiana Golovin|Mary Pierce|Sesil Karatantcheva|Cara Black|Clarisa Fernandez

If Danki play like today and Lena L, like today, Danki will wins 6-4 6-3... but if both players plays at her best, maybe Danki will wins like 6-4 7-5 6-2...

I haven't seen Bovina play after her injury so I don't know how her form is. But from what I can remember from last year she's one hell of a player. If her New Haven form shows up she will breezy by Dani. But she was pushed to three sets today so I doubt she is in excellent form. She won't upset Serena.

I think Bovina is a great player, but she's not experienced and talented enough to cope with a Serena Williams at 2%.

Let them eat cake.

myskina will crush bartoli who is prob tired from qualifying. nastya has a lot of rest! (although that's not a good thing... )

Kim Clijsters always in my heart

(3)Myskina (Q) def. (3) Bartolli
(8) Schnyder def. Na Li (Q)
Jankovic def. Farina Elia
(4) Kuznetsova def. Mirza
Hantuchova def. Likhotseva
(2) Serena def. Bovina

bovina is a tough competitor, but she's playing serena!~~ on her best day she can take a set off serena, i don't think serena has anything to worry about, she'll take care of business.
