Will Safina make it to the semifinals?

she had to play 3-set matches against WTA superstars rogowska and barrois. in the next round she faces kvitova. in a possible fourth round she meets errani or wickmayer. quarterfinal would be against k.bondarenko, rodionova, dulko or shvedova. WTA-40 is the highest ranked opponent she could meet...

Re: Will Safina make it to the semifinals?

AS crap as she is playing, there are no huge threats to her in this part of the draw so she is quite lucky IMHO and yes, she will make the semis.

Timea Aga Masha Bencic Kristyna Keys Dani

Re: Will Safina make it to the semifinals?

I donīt see her beating the Venus/Clijsters/Serena winner in the final, and I donīt see her beating Maria in the semis...

Of the players in the poll, the most dangerous for her is Yanina Wickmayer

Doubles (#82 CHR#80) Titles:2016 ITF Maui (w/Davidspell), Kofu (w/Javi) 2015 ITF Maui, Lagos Slam, Bangkok, Gifu F: MM Istanbul, Tokyo; (w/Davidspell)
TE: Singles (4 CHR#1) Titles: Wimbledon, Antwerp, Doha, Stuttgart, Wuhan
Doubles: Titles: Australian Open, Miami, Wuhan, Bogota, Stuttgart (w/Wojcirej)
DTT: Singles (6 CHR#6) Titles: Zhuhai, New Haven; F: Wimbledon

Re: Will Safina make it to the semifinals?

Kvitova is the definition of a brainless ballbasher but if she's on watch out. She hasn't won many matches since her strong start to the year but she's won two matches here inculding a win over Kleybanova so that should give her some confidence. Watch out for Wickmayer in the Round of 16. Any player who is bold and wants to win will.

Hopefully Maria vs. Safina. With Maria winning.

Maria Sharapova
Jelena Jankovic
| Kvitova | Wozniak | Azarenka | Marino | Dementieva (always) |

In love with Martha.

Re: Will Safina make it to the semifinals?

What a shitface top half it turned out to be. Total disappointment.

Let's hope someone saves us from another dinara grandslamfinal. I'm gonna laugh my ass off if Wozniacki comes through it.

Re: Will Safina make it to the semifinals?

If she's struggling against top 200 and top 100 players, imagine her nerves against Serena in the USO final.

And Serena will go for the humiliation.

Re: Will Safina make it to the semifinals?

I’ve heard they’ve engraved her name on the runner trophy already

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Will Safina make it to the semifinals?

I'm hoping for Dulko or K Bondarenko to make it through.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?
