I'm feeling Maria in this one. She will need to start well though.

I dont know. Even though Kuzzy lost to Ana, she still showed some big game and some mighty returns. Masha will have to be on top of her game or at least playing well. It would help if she returned a little better :/ Too many netted second serve returns against Dani. We'll see

I think Sharapova will win in three, but it wouldn't surprise me if she dismantled Kuznetsova in two. However, this will most likely be an ugly match. I think that whoever shows more fight and determination will win.

If Maria wins, Sveta is out. So I think Sveta has more motivation.

It depends. Sveta can play with Maria as she did in Miami or as she did in the previous YECs,
but I think Sveta plays in YECs as she plays in YECs.

Re: Madrid RR: [2] Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. [6] Maria Sharapova - WWW

I think Maria has got this one. Maria always play well at YECs...and she has done so far this year. Kuznetsova, like Dementieva for example, has never played well at YECs...and I expect the same to go tomorrow.

I agree that this will probably be an ugly match. I think Kuznetsova will frustrate Sharapova into crazy errors by getting lots of balls back; it's not like Hantuchova could play the defense role. Also even though Sveta has a bad record against Maria, they haven't played recently with Sveta as the new #2 and a much more confident player.

If she finds her range early - I fancy Sveta for this one.

Also usually a good quality contest when these two get it on .....

These are the only slam winners in their group. And if Serena doesn't play, it will be the only time slam winners meet at this YEC until the weekend..
