Warsaw: Last Eight

Let's face it. Venus vs Kuznetsova is the only match in the QFs.

Clijsters___
Schiavone...|_Clijsters
Radwanska___| Dementieva
Dementieva

Ivanovic..._
Chakvetadze | Ivanovic
Venus.....__| Venus
Kuznetsova

Yes the lower ranking players CAN win, but reaistically ....

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Not really SCHIAVONE could realistically beat Kim and Anna C could beat Ana I. Demenetieva against an up and coming player playing well on her home soil ...i wouldn't say that Demetieva would win is a given either

You're probably right, but tennis is a funny, unpredictable sport.. you never know what could happen! I definitely don't think Clijsters is a sure thing tomorrow.

Yes. Ivanovic/Chakvetadze and Dementieva/Radwanska need to be reversed in the draw shown here.

Clijsters will steamroll Schiavone. Dementieva (not her clone that shows up once a while) should win without any fuss. Chakvetadze & Ivanovic, though is interesting. That match may seem like a give, but i'm just not too sure Ana will go through that comfortably.

Now, Venus & Kuznetsova. THAT will be a cracker of a match. Or not. Again, depends on which Venus shows up. The DUbai 2004 or Warsaw 2004 Venus? We'll see i guess

I hope Venus beats kuzzy because Venus is spicing things up. I like Kuzzy and Kim but I want to she Venus play some more.

I hope win or lose, it is a three-setter for Vee. She needs the match play. If she should beat Kuzzie, then she's potentially got Ana and their one and only match was ! and then, Kim. Venus will want to pay back big time, but it will likely be another tough three setter.
Venus is going to have to work big time to get this title!

Chakvetadze hasn't gotten past the round-of-16 this year, before this tournament. And last year she only got past the round-of-32 once on red clay, at Istanbul, not the strongest field. Ivanovic really has no excuse for not winning this match.

Either Dementieva is as good as her ranking and history suggest, or she's not. If she is, this is a 2-set win.
