This is gonna be an interesting match.

I think Kim will be able to take it. Reason being it's very rare that she plays back to back bad matches. Generally speaking when she has a bad match she ups her level and comes out focused as Kirilenko found out.

I could be totally wrong and she'll play a horrible match against Kuznetsova too but consistency is on her side as well.

Kim is 3-0 against Sveta. The last time they played is the last time Sveta lost at the US Open.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there

I really have no idea, Kuznetsova is not at her best but Kim played an aweful match today, so it could go both ways, but I think that Kim will win in the end

I think Kim will win in 3 but she won't stay unbeaten against russians for a long time : Maria will take her revenge at Berlin (hopefully)

Maria Sharapova
Krunic~~ Ivanovic ~~ Jovanovski ~~ Stojanovic~Jorovic
Putintseva~~Robson ~~Hingis~~ Svitolina ~~ Pavlyuchenkova~~ Rybarikova~~ Halep~~Pervak~~Kulichkova~~Kirilenko~~Mladenovic
Bencic~~Voegele~~Jankovic~~Zvonareva~~Karolina Pliskova ~~Krystina Pliskova

I think Clijsters will take her down in 3 sets. I kind of hope Sveta wins just so Kim's streak will end.

Kim is also undefeated against the Americans as well. Ask Rocketta.

yeah, i was at that match, it was maybe the worst tennis i've ever seen in my life...sveta was not nearly as good as she is now and the conditions were pretty bad too, i wouldn't necessarily use that as a benchmark case, although i do expect kimbo to win this one, prob in 3 sets, depends on if kim can pull her game together, it seems it's been a bit variable this tournament so far

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"

kim will win in 2, if she gets her serve better then it was today, then it won't be much of a problem

Everything will change
But,love remains the same

I saw that match also.
Sveta is better, but this year she's not at her best yet.
But that could change quickly.
