Myskina definitely has a chance. Venus has said she's retired. And often times, it's hard to come back after winning a title that's so important to her as Wimbledon is and play your best tennis.

Battle of the Pre-Wimbledon slumpers...

I say Venus

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

Venus can win if she wants it. I dunno if she really will put her all into the match! The girl is tired!

Playing on clay makes this match much more interesting and even. I think Myskina will win 5-7, 6-4, 7-5. Venus tends to do badly after she does well. (ie. Instunbul to French Open)

Flavia Pennetta

yep, myskina beat venus the last time these two matched up on clay in 04, and the previous meeting went down to the wire on clay, should be close.

I would love to see Venus win and I voted for her, but it's not a certainty. She has a lot of confidence going into this match coming off the Wimby win and she looks very relaxed, but let's face it, she's in Russia against one of it's premier players and on red clay. It's has been said that it's tough going from such a fast surface like grass to red clay, so I don't know. Also, Venus has the pressure to continue to produce good tennis, she's the only top player on the team now and she has to be exhausted from Wimby and jetlag from travelling. Not saying that she can't handle the pressure, but it will be difficult. With all that said, I hope it's a good close match, where both play quality tennis and may the best woman win.

You have to give the edge to Venus who has had a better year than Myskina. Myskina last year would have the edge.

Really, don't even look at me...

Well Petrova is unfit so Nasty is playing.I will vote for myskina.She has already battled out from difficult situations in wimby..And not by luck but with grit.And I think she is always ready to play for russia.She gets more motivated.U rem how she showed her heroism last yr Fed Cup?I am not so sure if Venus is all that motivated for us to win fed cup.She is still in air of Wimby and jumping now and then.So my pick is Nasty what you say.
