What's the most unpredictable match-up (nowadays)?

For me definitely Kuznetsova vs. Kirilenko

Not only nowadays. No matter how the form of either is, you never know who´s going to win. Normally, Kuznetsova is superior and should always win, but Makiri is winning too many of their matches..

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

It´s like Jankovic vs. Venus. All the match has to do is go to three sets and the winner is: Jankovic

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

That's (unfortunately) not really true.

Re: What's the most unpredictable match-up (nowadays)?

Kleybanova v Ivanovic always seems to be a flip of the coin kind of thing depending both on the circumstances surrounding the match as well as who happens to be better on the day but clearly both players have demostrated numerous times their ability to beat the other one.

I admit, I'm not looking so much at the results as how the match plays out.

Re: What's the most unpredictable match-up (nowadays)?

I would also say that practically every match Safina plays at the moment seems a 50/50 proposition. In the last month and a half Safina has defeated Kirilenko, Schiavone and Hantuchova. She has also lost to Kirilenko, Schiavone and Hantuchova. Says it all really.

So Safina vs Anybody basically.

And yet, Venus has won the last 2 3-set matches they played. 4-5 overall. Yeah, it's a gosh darn conclusion JJ would win.
