Re: Wimbledon Rd 1: Erakovic vs Krajicek

Misa was a Quarterfinalist in Wimbledon, and if she doesn't win her first round match then her ranking will absolutely plummet!

Hope Marina can pull of this one, not sure if she will though....

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

I don't understand, you get so confident that she will give Venus a run for her money in Miami and feel like she has a chance against Jelena in Paris (which she gave a real good fight in), yet you don't think she can beat Misa?

I know they're doubles partners, but Marina takes this one easily.

Re: Wimbledon Rd 1: Erakovic vs Krajicek

That's such a cruel match ....but I think Erakovic will win that, Misa has been playing well on grass, but Marina did better !!!

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Not sure if you understood what I said in my post.
I was sure that Marina would put in a good showing against Venus and Jelena Jankovic, and she did. In the post that you referred to what I meant was that I hope that she could pull off the win, but I don't think it will be easy by any means! We disagree with each other on what sort of scoreline we think it will be, but I hope your right!

I just think that if you believe Marina can put a good showing against a top 10 player (which she did vs Jelena), I would think that you'd be totally confident in terms of a win against a player like Misa, who isn't at her best. Of course, you don't want to sound cocky and jinx her, right?

There is a big difference between putting up a good fight, and being a heavy favourite...................oh fine, your correct in the last sentence

Re: Wimbledon Rd 1: Erakovic vs Krajicek

If Erakovic serves well she should win.
I foresee a lot of aces in this match (from both players).

*1*Lindsay Davenport*1*

Maria Sharapova/Jelena Jankovic/Justine Henin

Also supporting Carla Suarez Navarro,Na Li, Sabine Lisicki,Karolina Sprem,Samantha Stosur,Tamira Paszek

Amelie Mauresmo/Martina Hingis

Krajicek takes this, I think.


And it appears I am the only one.

Re: Wimbledon Rd 1: Erakovic vs Krajicek

I think taking into account current form Marina is the favourite. But I wouldn't say it's a sure thing. The two players are friends and often doubles partners, including this week, and a lot will depend on how they both deal with an awkward unfortunate draw which I'm sure neither of them would have wanted. They are both professionals but it is never easy playing your friend/doubles partner. The fact that Marina has made such a habit of winning is very much in her favour however.

I think so too. They did play 2ce in juniors. I think both on grass, and Misa won both matches. Yeah, it was a time ago, but Marina hasn't actually been serving that well this week so...we'll see.
