Who will win? battle of the marathon-runners smashnova and jankovic!

arguably the toughest first round match, looks to be a killer for both players - so who will win it?
both have very different styles of play, but one thing is for sure - it's going to be a LONG match, and the two will cover lots of ground.
discuss and vote!

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Jankovic...I mean, it's not like you're gonna count on Anna to go for the winner. I don't think this is gonna be that big of a match, Jelena should take it in two moderate-to-tight sets...something like 6-3, 6-4

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga

Smashnova played a player similiar to Jankovic in Vaidisova this week. She lost. The third set was pathetic. Jankovic has the power game and moves a little better than Smashnova. I give the edge to Jankovic.

Sounds like one of those matches which won´t get broadcasted, instead we get a 6-1 6-0 first round match

I say Jelena will win.

depends on the translation.
richard the fifth sux, the oxford roman-catholic church one sux as well.
my friend has a good translation that i can't remember who wrote.

but i read it in hebrew, so it's harder.
but i'm also majoring bible-studies. i LOVE the bible.

I think jankovic can win. Anna lost to nicole whos a slighter build than jankovic but much the same game.

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic
