Who will win?: Jill Craybas (USA) vs. [2] Dinara Safina (RUS)

They've never played against eachother. Safina's won a title this year while this is Jill's first QF on Clay/of the year.

I'm hoping Jill, but it might be Safina

Jill doesn't have the game. Even her experience in a situation like this is lacking. For Jill to have a chance in this match. She'll have to cut off the angles and make this a match of consistency. If she can do that she has a 50/50 chance. Safina just loves playing these small Teir clay tournis. She's been in this situation before so she knows what she has to do and she's played players like Craybas before. Safina in straights.

if dinara plays anywhere near her ability she will win pretty comfortable. if her heads not in it however craybas will make life tough because she'll get as much back as she can and that could drive dinara "i'm the sister of marat" safina insane.

Safina will probably win and that's looking to be her 2nd title of the year.

Just to make this interesting...

Craybas wins 7-6 (13-11) 6-7 (7-9) 7-6 (16-14)

Dinara will have a 5-2 40-0 lead in the second and a 4-0 lead in the third.
