WWW RG R3: (10) Kerber vs (18) Pennetta?

Interesting match up. Flavia leads 2-1 H2H, including an 6-2 6-1 win in Auckland this year, as well as their only meeting on clay in Bastad last year.
Hopefully Kerber will come through though.

Kerber is in better form, so she should win. Hoping for an upset

Supporting useless players before it was cool.

Kerber has seemed somewhat flat in her 2 RG matches, I haven'[t watched Flavia's matches in Paris but in Rome she played really well. Hard to tell.

I favour Pennetta pretty heavily. Kerber´s serve is a mess. She struggles to counterpunch for quick points and to put together long successful rallies on red clay. Flavia´s grinder game should be perfect to wear down Kerber.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

They both seemed in good form in Rome. Doesn't Flavia have an injury problem though?
I've watched just a little of Angie's matches at RG and I haven't watched Flavia at all so I don't know how they've been playing.
This is an interesting one. Hoping for Angie but it can be very tricky.

I'm thinking Kerber in 3. Probably similar to their US Open match.

Flavia's form here is pretty bad, she hasn't hit a single shot from her retirement in Rome until last saturday...i think it would be a close match with flavia little favourite if they both were fit, but with those physical problems i see Angie as a heavy fave here

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Flavia if fully fit should win this, but I think Kerber will come through.

FLAVIA PENNETTA

US OPEN CHAMPION 2015

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Sry but Kerber serve is bs and i havnt seen game from him which impresses me in French Open. If Penneta is fit, then she is clear favourite
And i think that pair winner goes to QF at least
