I've gotta go with Henin-Hardenne in two sets cause she plays very well at the moment, and I think she won't underestimate Kuznetsova like she didn't underestimate Kirilenko today.

You guys are never going to believe this, but I actually want Justine to win!

I think Justine will pull out the win. She's so deadly on clay.

Justine v Amelie and Justine v Martina are both matches.

I never thought I'd say it, but "Allez Justine!"

Kuznetsova is always a threat to Justine even with such lopsided H2H in Justine's favor. But Justine knows that, so I think she'll be ready, and counting on that, I have to go with her. She's a better player than Kuznetsova and knows just the right plan to win. Their encounters this year have been straight sets wins, but I'll vote for Justine in 3 since A) Kuznetsova is, perhaps, more solid now, B) Kuznetsova probably gave Justine the two toughest battles she had to dig a win on last year's clay season (Warsaw F and RG R16).

And I really want to see either Justine vs Amélie or Justine vs Martina

Allez Justine!

Svetlana is a great clay court player but just seems to lack concentration especially against Kim - She was just going for ridiculous winners & until she tones it down and goes for percentage tennis she will continue to have trouble with the Belgians.

Justine in 2 - 7-6 6-1

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
