QF: (1) Kim Clijsters vs. (8) Martina Hingis

This is the third time they've played this season. Kim has won both times at the Australian Open 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 and French Open 7-6(5), 6-1.

Will Kim beat Martina again?

My prediction:

Kim Clijsters def. Martina Hingis 7-5, 4-6, 6-3

Well, I WANT Martina to win in 2, but it is probably going to go to 3 no matter who wins...still I have to go with Hingis, hopefully she can take a 5-3 lead in their H2H!

If Martina was ever going to beat Kim, this would be the time. However, she doesn't seem to be in ideal form herself. Kimmie got her wake-up call today against Jelena; therefore, I predict Kim in two relatively routine sets.

Thinking Kim in three. She didn't play that great in the beginning of Stanford and then picked up her game in the important rounds. Also Kim's movement in Stanford shocked me, I haven't seen her move that well in months. Martina will have a chance, but I think Kim will just be too solid for her.

Well, for me, it depends on whether martina had learned something from her previous lost to kimmy. Martina really need to come up with a good strategy (something new ?) to play tomorrow.

Im sure that kimmy is already comfortable with her game againts hingis, because she knew exactly how to play hingis since she beat her twice this year.

So its all up to Hingis, she know kim is a great mover, consistent and powerful. Its hingis task now to find a strategy to beat her.

Otherwise, Kim will get another victory.

martina is gonna beat Kim at some point and what better time than now! Kim is playing well but droppping sets to vera, jankovich and jamea at FedCup might be the inspiration for martina to go one set better. All the best martina!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Dont forget that both vera, jelena and jamea is playing a good tennis recently. So i dont really surprise if all those girls can take a set out of kim.
