Who will survive Dementieva's quarter?

As I see it, Dementieva, Davenport, and Safina are the main three threats to advance to the quarterfinal in that section. And although Davenport is the best grass-courter of the three, and Safina owns Dementieva, I think anything can happen here. And despite both being in poor form, Safarova and Peer are very good players as well.

It is perhaps the toughest quarter (this or Jankovic's), so I'm curious what you guys think. I'll keep this alive up to the completion of who does make it to the quarterfinal.

I don't give Dementieva much of a shot. Davenport would of course have owned these girls just a few years ago, but...I'm feeling a Safina loss to Sharapova in the quarters.

The winner of the Lindsay-Lena match. Dinara's game doesn't suit grass very well and I think the that Lindsay or Lena should win against her in the 4th round.

Sorry Ludwig, you are not going to like my answer but I think you know who is just on fire at the moment and right now she is very much the one to beat.

Re: Who will survive Dementieva's quarter?

Dinara hasn't lost a set at the Ordina Open, and is really one match, that RG final where she said she was tired, from dominating the tour since they left the US

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Who will survive Dementieva's quarter?

Jankovic/Venus quarter is the thoughest to begin with.

I see Safina or maybe Lindz. But unfortunately for her, Lena has none chance.

Quarter? Hell, Lena's taking down TOB in the semis.

Not that I tend to get separated from reality when Lena is involved.

Dinara Safina most likely, it won't matter that she doesn't like grass if she keeps her game up.

If Linds is not too injured she could!

If she was mildly-fit i think she has a chance at Semis.

What's to dislike? I am very aware who the three players are and what they each are capable of. I am a fan of them all, particularly the two bound for the third round. I defend Elena, but in genuine questions like the one posed in the initial post, I can accept everyone's opinions. I hardly ever get involved in the conversations in my threads anyway.

I think they all have great shots to make the quarterfinal, personally. I think Davenport should make it through due to her ability on the surface, but I'll have to see how she's playing in the first round or two. If she plays well and beats Dementieva convincingly, I look forward to her QF against Sharapova.

Safina should really never beat Lindsay, unless it's clay. But you never know where any of these three girls will be at any given time...

Re: Who will survive Dementieva's quarter?

It won't be Dementieva.
Davenport should beat Safina on grass.
Peer is horrible. Peer is even worse on grass.
Safarova, who knows, if she gets a ball in the court.
