dammit. I KNOW espn isn't showing this match!

i wish i could see Ivanovic play for the first time but I don't think it's going to happen.

I wanna say Mahree will win but I think Ivanovic is so hot right now. So, I don't know.

Mary beat Patty in a TOUGH 3 set battle at RG, and that win gave her the confidence to rout Lindsay in the next round.

Mary will be confident after this TOUGH match, and she usually brings her A-game after a match like this. Hopefully, she will beat Ana but it will undoubtedly be tough.

Yeah I had a feeling you would pick Pierce, pierce0415. I'm picking Ana. She has a better feel on grass and has been serving well here. Movement will be a big factor in this match and that's something that Ivanovic does better.

Of course this won't be on TV. It will happen on Saturday which means it will be NBC coverage! They are going to throw themselves over Roddick, Serena, Venus and Masha even if those matches are all 60 60

I am holding out some hope. Espn has the coverage in the morning and nbc starts in the afternoon. I was cheering for Mary to win because I know she already has some draw and this match would likely end up on tv.

Mary beat Julia Vakulenko. That's not like beating Patty Schynder.

Ivanovic is a better grass courter player than Mary is even at this young age. The only thing stopping Ivanovic is having to defeat the recent French Open finalist...if her mind and nerves are up to it, she should win.

espn shows replays during the night.

NBC for sure won't show it. Especially after that FO fiasco.

Well of course Schnyder on clay is much better than Vakulenko on grass, but thats not the point. Im just saying that regardless of the opponent, Mary usually plays much better in the next round after a tough match.

This match will probably come down to who can break first. Both have big serves over 110 mph. The player that gets them in will win

I want to watch this!!!
Unfortunatelly , I haven't seen any matches pf Ivanovic at wimlbedon yet but going by the stats I am having a hard time seeing Mary hold up here seeing as her movement is limited. Now the x factors can be the crowd, what court they play, or just experience of Mary.
