Maria will win in 2 for sure.

I couldn't care less for the winner though

Ana Ivanović.

After what I've just seen, I can't say that Patty has any chances to win.. Maria was today so confident with her shots. Patty played Elena whose balls were flying everythere but not in the court, so she just needed to play the ball back.
I say Maria in 2 really short sets.

Swiss champs.

patty always plays well against maria. she beat her in rome last year and took her to three sets at the year-ending championships last season.

with the speed the courts are playing at, combined with the way patty plays against sharapova, i'm gonna go with patty schnyder in three tough sets.

Well, if I were you I wouldn't look at Maria's matches against Patty on clay - she doesn't play good at it.
Anyway, I think Maria's game will be too fast for Patty, but we'll see

You would think this would be a real easy win for Maria but all three meetings have gone three sets and Patty won once on clay. Maria has served and hit excellent the last two matches though so this should be a routine win for her. And beware of any picks for Schnyder as they will be the product of fans or wishful thinking. We just saw 40% pick Pierce over Maria...

I absolutely don`t know..Maria played perfect tennis today..
but if Patty plays angles, high balls and drop shots tomorrow, she`ll have a chance.
Mainly angles and high balls to BH of Maria...

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

or simply bias against Maria...but this is what occurs most of the time in match polls with Sharapova in them...no matter the circumstances...even with a returning-after-several-months mary pierce. it gets really funny and absurd sometimes.

Maria Sharapova

This one is a toss up. Patty is the type of player that is capable of frustrating Maria. Every match they have played in the past has gone the distance with three sets. Patty has a win over her. I think this one is too close to call. Those of you who are predicting Maria will eat Patty alive are under estimating the match up.

Patty is so talented and has every shot and trick in the book in her arsenel. If she stays focused and that's a big if for Patty than she has a real shot. I absolutely love when she drop shots and then lobs her opponent - I think it's her best play. I'd pick Sharapova to win but I think it will be close. Patty will drag Maria all around the court with her crafty angles and wrong footers. I want Patty to win because I don't think she's reached anywhere near her potential and it would do the tour wonders to see her play at her best coming up to and at the US Open.

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

Not on a hardcourt when Maria served nine aces and had a plus 8 differential today. Patty just lost to Katarina Srebotnik two weeks ago. Maria loses to one kind of player: faster than she is with power almost equal. Schnyder is just as fast, but not faster than Maria, and doesn't have anywhere near the power. Sharapova will win 6-3; 6-3 or something like that.

Patty plays a Mauresmo-like game. That should have Maria concerned.

i genuinely hope patty wins, but then she'll keel over and die for sters.

but a sharapova/clijsters final is not something i want to see, because i dislike them immensely.

so i guess patty and hope she beats clijsters, although that wont happen.

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga
