Exclamation Beijing Quarterfinal Predictions: Possible Historic First All Masha SF

1 Maria def. Shinobu 63, 63

Now that Maria has shaken the rust from the match against Shahar, this one should be a walk in the park.

Tian Tian def. Lil Maria 76 67 76

Maybe this is wishful thinking since I am not sure how Tian Tian really can stack up against top 50 players that are not injured but she has got to be brimming with confidence after a career win over Serena. If she can follow it up by preventing an all Maria SF, then that will show she is ready for the big time

3 Venus def. Marta 62 64

I have never seen Marta play but I don't think she will put up any resistence to Venus.

Shuai def. 9 Anna-Lena 26 63 75

This will also be a competitive match between two hungry young guns. ALG's serves will be cracking but Shuai is more lethal off the ground. Really can go either way but I am going to stick with Shuai on this one

Lets get the third round matches done first.

But an all Masha semi would be a first!

Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,

Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko

Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.

Sharapova d. Asagoe 6-1, 7-5

Sun d. Kirilenko 6-0, 3-6, 6-3

Venus d. Domachowska 6-4, 6-0

Peng d. Groenefeld 3-6, 7-5, 6-1

Yeah, I think that looks about right.

historic? why is this the first time two people named maria would play each other in a semi? i doubt it.

Serena: Australian Open Champion 2005

Venus: Wimbledon Champion 2005

Amelie Mauresmo- Amazing! YEC Champ 2005, AO 2006 CHAMP!!

Myskina, Davenport, Kuznetsova, Golovin, Ivanovic, Pierce, Schnyder, Mirza, Benesova

Lindsay Lee Waters, A-L Groenefeld, Dally Randriantefy, Nadia Petrova, Alicia Molik, Kim Clijsters

Roger Federer Forever!

It's not exactly historic considering we had an all-Maria final at 2002 Pittsburgh Challenger. Perhaps you recognize the names?


Maria Camerin d. Maria Sharapova 7-6 (7-4), 6-2

It's still the third round of the tournament, whether it's the quarterfinal or not.
