Predictions for WTA Thursday Play
Justine Henin Hardenne beats Svetlana Kuznetsova
Svetlana has had the benefit of playing full matches, but Justine has a better head to head (7-1) which i think will benefit her and give her the advantage.
Nicole Vaidisova beats Francessca Schiavone
Both players are playing well, but I think Nicole will win the match-up between two unexpected semi-finalists.
Michaela Kraijeck beats Jelena Kostanic
No head-to-head; but I think its safe to say that Michaela will win this one, adding to her success to her Hopman Cup runner-up place.
Iveta Benesova beats Mara Santangelo
Mara has won their only previously encounter, but that was four years ago, and Iveta is a more experienced and better player now. Iveta will take this easily I think.
Anabel Medina Garrigues beats Shahar Peer
Anabel has more experience than Shahar which will be the telling of the match.
Catalina Castano beats Yoon-Jeong Cho
I think the Colombian is vastly improving and will want to make her second final appearance on the tour, to Cho's expense.
