I would like to see Akgul win but think Dally will absorb a few big serves and big hits and come through due to her consistency and tenacity, something like 7-5 6-3.

I doubt there will be ANY commentators for this match.
No disrepect to their fans, but this is a big "who cares" to the AO in general.
Even though this board knows Akgul, there's no way Mac or Shriver or Carillo have heard of her, no ??
i remember a year or two ago, Serena was playing Mirza and Mary Carillo was like...who IS this kid ? and she mispronounced her name all match.

Dally has only played one event since the US Open, so she's sorely lacking in match play. Akgul has a monstrous serve and if she can get on her early and keep the points short with her power, I think Akgul will prevail 6-4 6-4. I'd certainly like to see that as Akgul is incredibly strapped for cash right now.
