YEC: "Russian v Russian = Russia Wins" Match - Maria vs Svetlana. Who will win this?

Maria is virtually in the semifinals, and is hoping to continue her winning streak. As for Svetlana, she will have to beat Maria and hope Clijsters lose to Dementieva in order to qualify.

So, will the Siberian Tigress roar on, or will the Iron Maiden of Russia (Sveta) take the win?

The iron maiden with the new trendy hair-do will turn the power up to the MAX and roar into the semi-finals.

Re: YEC: "Russian v Russian = Russia Wins" Match - Maria vs Svetlana. Who will win this?

If Svetlana wins, it will definitely be unexpected. I think Maria is favored, especially indoors. However, in my ideal scenario, Svetlana would beat Maria in straight sets and Kim would win in straight sets, but Maria would win enough games to make the semis. That way, Maria would face Justine (who will beat Amelie) and Martina will face Kim. Ideally, then, we would have a Martina vs. Maria final, meaning Martina would end up top five and Maria would end up no.1.

Maria's spot in the semis isn't 100% locked in yet. Maria is well rested after having a day off between matches. Maria will win this match - either in two sets or three - it doesn't matter, she wins over Kuzzy.

Masha's not certain of her SF, therefore, she'll take the match seriously and come of with some baked goods down Svetlana's throat! Just you wait and see!

I think Maria will take this match seriously and probarbly win in straight sets. As I see it Maria canīt afford to tank this match just to be second in her group since the Kim - Elena match is scheduled last. It could backfire and she would be out of the tournament.

maria has quite hit top gear yet and sveta hit pretty much bottom gear last night. sveta will improve her performance, but sharapova will win in 2. its gonna be 6-3, 6-2.

I think Kuzzy will give Maria quite a tough game because she definitely wants to go to the semis. But then again Maria should have enough to overcome Kuzzy.

Re: YEC: "Russian v Russian = Russia Wins" Match - Maria vs Svetlana. Who will win this?

maria will win this one i must say as she is the one in form, but sveta won't make it easy 4 her though as she is determined 2 make the semis too so maria in 2 tight sets. i hope maria wins this one so that if kim wins over lena then both of them will be in the semis. sorry sveta, there's not enough room 4u even if my sig says i support u, but also support maria too.

The funniest thing is you and I have the same two faves except they're in reverse order. Your #1 is Kim, my #1 is Maria and #2 is Kim. Go figure.
