Who's gonna win: Maria Sharapova (1) vs Ai Sugiyama

Who's gonna win this match?

Maria who's not playing 100%, can she raise her game, especially her serve or can Ai take on the upset?

Re: Who's gonna win: Maria Sharapova (1) vs Ai Sugiyama

I'm going for Ai in three in front of the home crowd

If Maria isn't playing at her best, Ai can definitely take advantage!

Allez Ai!

Hantuchova/Sugiyama def. (1) Black/Huber 6-7(0) 6-3 7-6(10) saving SEVEN match points, down 2-5 in the third, and down 2-6 in the third set tiebreak in three hours

Ai Sugiyama. Jie Zheng. Zi Yan. Tamira Paszek.
Yaroslava Shvedova. Nuria&MariaJose. Yung-Jan Chan. Elena Vesnina. Flavia Pennetta.

I'm gonna say Maria will win this match but she will struggle since she's a bit off her game lately & Ai of course can cause her some several problems if that's the case.

Maria in 2.
Poor Ai. She is thinking about Masha's bad form after tough match against Schiavone. But she's wrong. Masha will raise her game for sure.

Re: Who's gonna win: Maria Sharapova (1) vs Ai Sugiyama

Maria struggled because of the change of court and finding her feet again. Now that she has a win and really played a great last set she will take out Ai in two sets. although i think im being very overoptimistic. Whats going on Masha

Please take her down Ai. Sharapova would really benefit from going home early to work on her pathetic serve.

I find it embarassing when the world #1 has to resort to on-court coaching to help her figure out a match. Someone else needs to quickly replace her as #1.
