Who will win Linz? Yanina Wickmayer takes on Petra Kvitova

They faced each other in USO R4, Yanina won 7-5 third set. Both girls seem to be playing very well this week.
Who takes her 2nd International event of the year?

Re: Who will win Linz? Yanina Wickmayer takes on Petra Kvitova

Yanina will win because Kvitova does not retrieve as well as Yanina. In addition Kvitova overhits too many balls.

Based on what I've seen today, Petra will win easily.

Lucie Šafářová, Petra Kvitová, Lucie Hradecká

Re: Who will win Linz? Yanina Wickmayer takes on Petra Kvitova

I prefer Wickmayer's game, I think she's a better athlete...But Kvitova seems to really thrive off of playing indoors and her game suits it well.

Could go either way, but I'm going to give a slight edge to Wickmayer based on having won their previous big match meeting, should give her some added confidence heading into the match.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

Re: Who will win Linz? Yanina Wickmayer takes on Petra Kvitova

For me Kvitova is the better player but Wickmayer has a mental edge having won their USO R4 encounter 75 in the third. This block will be too much for Kvitova to overcome.

Awesome final

Really wouldn't mind who takes it, but I think Yanina will do in 3.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Who will win Linz? Yanina Wickmayer takes on Petra Kvitova

Final well underway now, but I haven't checked the score yet to avoid spoilers when I watch the taped highlights later today.

So I'd say Wickmayer takes this easily.

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson

Prokofiev + Son Goku = pwnage
