Re: WWW Doha 1/4 Final: Marion Bartoli FRA v Lucie Safarova CZE
Cake has the eye of the tiger lately, and fights no end. I didn't see any of Safarova's matches lately, but she certainly appears to be in great form and snatching wigs right and left.
I'm picking Marion. She hits hard, and I suspect her two-fistedness makes her less susceptible to problems handling lefthanders. (But I don't have data on that.)
"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005
P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3
