WWW - Memphis Round 1 - Marina Erakovic vrs Laura Granville

Marina has been in absolutely awesome form recently, but Laura (as inconsistent as she is) has far more experience playing at this level. It could be a very close and hard fought match.

Who do you think will win?

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

No ones voted for Ron Paul yet...well I guess most of the people who support him don't post anywhere else anyway

If Erakovic plays the way she did in New Zealand, she has a great chance... unfortunately Venus is waiting for her if she manages to reach QF!

One match at a time...if Marina reached the quarterfinals and then was thrashed 6-0 6-0 I would still be proud of her

Venus could slip up along the way too

Re: WWW - Memphis Round 1 - Marina Erakovic vrs Laura Granville

I don´t like Ron Paul but I voted for him anyway

On a more serious note, probably Marina.

Re: WWW - Memphis Round 1 - Marina Erakovic vrs Laura Granville

Marina hasn't got the home crowd to hype her up this time, and Laura will have learnt her lessons from last time.
Unfortunately Laura 6-3 6-1
Please prove me wrong Marina!

Without a doubt Leanne Baker, Ellen Barry, Kai Vano and Shona Lee play much better at home than away. But I really don't think this rule applies to Marina. Marina has won or performed well in a number of ITF events away from home. She really made Maria Kirilenko work for that win in Dubai last year and she has improved surely she must be in a good mental space after that incredible week in Auckland, followed by being unbeaten (in singles) at Fed Cup Asian group and then winning playing incredibly well in Australia. On top of that the surface seems to have suited her, she has been the most impressive qualifier thats for sure

I strongly think that Marina could beat Laura although I think it will be a close match.

But hey I could be wrong

Oh and one more thing I think it's the first time in Wtaworld history where three different kiwi posters have posted consecutively

Re: WWW - Memphis Round 1 - Marina Erakovic vrs Laura Granville

I voted for Granville because I think she has more experience and after the humiliating doubles defeat, Marina will go in that match without a lot of confidence

Granville in 2... 6-4 6-1
