US Open 1st Round - Vaidisova vrs Rubin.... anyone else smelling an upset??

ok maybe just very wishful thinking on my part considering that there is still a question mark over Chanda regarding her injury and fitness. However, there is no doubt she has the experience and game to seriously hurt Nicole out there, and with the crowd behind her, it could give Chanda a nice confidence boost Anyone else think Chanda has a chance here?

The only people who are upset are us Rubin fans. Awful 1R draw.

It's just a sob story.
Bad luck keeps following her.
Hope she comes to europe for the carpet season.

i think it's safe to assume that Nicole is going to flatten Rubin (if Rubin actually shows up, of course).

no way. the way Chanda has been playing in WTT she'd be lucky to get 2 games in each set. She was very rusty.

Vassilissa is my girl............

I don't think so. She got burned by Jill Craybas in her first match back. Only one match in the last 13 months isn't nearly enough to start taking out in-form top ten players.

I think she can keep it competitive though and I'm sure Nicole will be taking this match very seriously.

I'd be shocked if Chanda beat Nicole.

I watched Rubin play WTT this summer and get overpowered and cremated by Angela Haynes.

Sorry but I cant see it happening.
