too early to tell, let wish both won the first match first

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Ennis and Jack found something most people don't ever find in this life...true love, the deepest, purest, most beautiful thing in the universes. Ennis and Jack have TRUE LOVE. They are SOULMATES. They have a love so deep, so pure, so strong, that it transcends everything, it's eternal.

As much as I like Martina, Pierce is a Top 5 player who deserves that distinction.

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

H2H 6-10 Mary Pierce.

But Mary had a great season in 2005, and that confidence will be really hard to break.

I would love for Martina to do well here but she would have to be playing so good to get past Mary at this stage in her comeback. I'll be cheering for Mary!

Maria Sharapova

That's actually one of the best records against Hingis, don't forget. Mary won their first meeting, their last meeting and once even won 6-0 6-0!
But none of that matters now. IF they meet -and it's no guarantee -you have to look at where they are now.. A tentative Hingis in just her third event after a three-year absence (ignoring the Weingartner debacle) and Mary a legitimate Top Five player and shot for top three status in the coming months.
