Anyone else here feeling Shvedova will beat Maria in their FO R3 match today?

When I looked at the schedule for Friday's matches, I noticed Maria's match was the last one on Phillip Chartier... and then suddenly I feel something doesn't feel right, like there is going to be an upset.

They have never met each other in the Tour before, and Shvedova's form this year is wretched (9-8), but somehow... something is gonna happen.

Hope I am wrong....

Shvedova actually seems to be on the upswing, so it could be close. I'm still backing Maria, however.

Maria SHOULD win this, however she is just returning, Yaro is back up, and this is Roland Garros.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Hope not. Think not.

Especially since everyone here is going on and on about the lightning speed of Chatrier.

Yes, where it's taken Henin, Ivanovic, or Dinara to knock her out.

Unless Maria drops dead before or during the match, she will win. Next topic, please.

Shvedova is on the way up, but Sharapova seems to be in excellent nick, and I'd back the latter to win.

On a serious note, Shvedova has NO chance in hell to touch Maria.

I don't know much about this girl, so I can't say. Though it seems that even if Maria were to struggle tomorrow, the match will probably be suspended before it finishes and Maria will be able to go back to the drawing board to refocus.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Yes, but only for a little bit. She got a few lucky draws but fell out once she had to face real competition
