Re: Madrid R3: [6]Li Na (CHN, # 6) – Roberta Vinci (ITA, # 37)

i believe Na can over-power easily, but i don't know if she's really finding her range or is it just her mediocre play proving good enough against most players.

i'm going for the 'upset' - na li in two.
but i prefer Vinci

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

probably Vinci as she is the new CLAY-GOAT ... I thought Kleybanova would overpower her but Vinci beat her easy

Na looks very fresh this week. Vinci is probably mentally tired if not physically. Should be a straightforward victory for Na.

Re: Madrid R3: [6]Li Na (CHN, # 6) – Roberta Vinci (ITA, # 37)

Vinci, I thought Hradecka could overpower her last week. She didn't. Neither did Kleybanova. Na isn't playing better than Lucie was in Barcelona that's for sure, she looked unplayable at times there.
When Vinci gets a foot in the rallies I don't see someone with Na game and her movement on clay getting the better of her, incredibly smart game she has and is joy to watch when she executes it well like she has in the past weeks.

Two easy matches in 4 days here should leave her pretty fresh, in all honesty she didn't play that much tennis this year and shouldn't be worn out at this part of the season
