WWW French Open R4: Kanepi vs Rus

I would give Kanepi the edge unless she chokes. But she won't play the top player (Arantxa ) so I think that ain't happen.

Re: WWW French Open R4: Kanepi vs Rus

Gonna be incredibly tough for Rus. She seems way more calm then last year though, i'd be so happy if she can somehow win this as well. Just a great week for her whatever happens.

Kanepi is the big favourite in 2 sets.



Go aran, you can do it! Love ya!

Re: WWW French Open R4: Kanepi vs Rus

SO hilarious that this is the R4 match-up, and not Serena-Wozniacki

Personally, I'm thrilled for both, though I hope Kaia takes it.

Halep Venus
Muguruza
Kerber
Safarova Bertens
Kvitova

hopefully Rus somehow, but unlikely.
I´m just so tired of Kanepi choking, every damn time.

Re: WWW French Open R4: Kanepi vs Rus

Kanepi will win of course, at least she took out a former top player. With the elimination of Serena the other section was a joke with Rus finally emerging to be eliminated now.

Re: WWW French Open R4: Kanepi vs Rus

Kanepi has won both of their previous meetings in straight sets, so she is definitely a favorite to win this match. I don't think Aranxta has enough weapons to really beat Kanepi. Kanepi has played really well this clay season and deserves a QF showing for sure. However, one thing I am worried about is the hostile Dutch crowd. A few days ago, Lukasz Kubot of Poland lost to David Goffin of Belgium and the scene was very hostile. The Belgian crowd was cheering on Kubot's errors and that really changed the overall course of the match. Today, the Dutch crowd did the same thing to Goerges and she winded up losing. No one wants to think the crowd is against them, booing their winners and cheering their errors. If Kanepi lets the crowd into her head, it could be an interesting match. I am still going with Kanepi in 2 because she would be an utter moron to pass up this opportunity against an opponent in the R16 who is ranked number 88 in the world.

4th QF. She made it to the QF in 2008 at RG and in 2010 at Wimbledon and US.

Re: WWW French Open R4: Kanepi vs Rus

I'd be glad to see any of these two girls in the QF. I think I want Arantxa to win, even though normally I would prefer Kaia.
But I guess Kanepi will take the opportunity and make another QF.
