WWW RG 4r: Nadia Petrova (RUS/19) vs. Venus Williams (USA/2)

Both girls have had a great clay court season. Venus won all their meetings, but the last one dates back from 2007, the first three before 2004 and Nadia's breakthrough on the circuit.

Both girls are playing sensationally. I really have no idea who will win this match. It's a very tough one for both girls. I am pretty sure the winner of this match will go on to take up the place as the finalist from the bottom half of the draw though.

Tough match. Hopefully Venus comes out on top. After this, the draw is wide open for either to make the final.

Venus-Serena-Anna

Disagree. Venus - definitely, this is her half to lose. Nadia...I could see her going down to Flavia or Caro easily if either make the Semis. Then again, beating Aravane and Venus B2B might clear Nadia's head a bit...not.

But then, can you not see Venus going down to Flavia?

Flavias a very very tough opponent for Venus if they meet this tournament.

Hard to choose Nadia... Venus hasn't been challenged yet though she doesn't look to be in top form (which is good as she should peak for the final ) but I think even if Nadia comes close to winning the match she will find a way to choke, so Venus all the way.

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

Pretty much. Nadia could even lose to Scheepers if she made the QF.

I would love to back Petrova, but as a punter, you just cant trust her. How many times does she play great tennis for 3-4 rounds, and then walks out and bashes everything out of court?

so true, but Venus won their last match up on red clay. I'm thinking she will be even more prepared this time if they were to meet.

Hopefully but I'm hoping Caroline Wozniacki sorts it out!

If Lena doesn't go far I'd like to see Nadia do well. Just to remind people that the Russians are still a force to be reckoned with.

"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"
