(1)Mauresmo v Hingis
Hingis' win over Dementieva should be a HUGE confidence booster. I know it's hard to believe, but Hingis actually might pull this one off. Hingis in 3 tight ones.
(3)Henin-Hardenne v. (6)Kuznetsova
After her win over Kirilenko, I think she silenced some of her critics on her chances to repeat at RG. This one will be tougher, but I still see her pulling through easily in this 2005 RG 4th round re-match. Henin-Hardenne in 2 tight sets
Li v. (4)Schnyder
Li is on a pretty good run. Take out last week and so is Patty. I think if Li plays a decent level though, this one is hers. Li in 2 sets.
(10)Safina v. (2)Petrova
This one is a toss-up. Safina's playing well, Petrova played well (up until today). If Safina's nerves come into play, expect Nadia to win. Although Nadia really hasn't had a problem getting to finals, it was what she did when she got there...which she did fairly often. Nadia in 3 sets.
