Re: Who stands the better chance of winning

GD's coming over to support sister Sacha. Hopefully she plays very well; unfortunately I don't see her winning.

Marina definitely has more chance. "What the hell", I'm playing Dokic she might say

Re: Who stands the better chance of winning

Marina is playing very well. I definately think she can beat Dokic and go on to qualify. Sacha is not playing well at all however. I don't see her winning a match.

Re: Who stands the better chance of winning

Marina's draw is kind of in reverse. Tough matches in Dokic and possibly Tamasugarn first and second. Has she played Tamarine before?

Sacha will definitely have her work cut-out for her, but her best of still to come

So if both players are 'crap' (your word not mine) then which 'crap' player do you think will win

Your aware that coming into Auckland she won something like 3 or 4 tournaments straight. Yes they were only NZMT matches, but even so she still gains from that a winning feeling

I didn't think so...but then I did a H2H search and they have met once before back in the first round of a 25k event. Marina won in 3 sets.

Meng is a beatable player, it should go to three sets
