Berlin showdown around the corner
Berlin "possible" semifinals:
On collision course CLIJSTERS / CAPRIATI and MAURESMO / HENIN-HARDENNE.
I know everything can happen, but all these players seem to be on top form, given by their wins this week. Non of them seem to have broken a sweat (except for Clijsters maybe a little bit today).
So it looks like we are heading towards a real Semifinal showdown. These are my takes:
Clijsters / Capriati: Last time they played on clay was at the final of the RG, and Jen managed to pull the win. Kim is a much stronger and better player today than she was two years ago, and Jen... isn't?? Can I say that? Anyway, Jen seems to be very focused and it should be a real battle. I say Kim in 3 sets possibly.
Mauresmo / Justine: I really have no clue. I have no clue at all. I expect something like a 3 setter with 3 tie breaks. Something like that. Same kind of backhand, good serve, good variety... it should be extraordinary.
I know I am one match ahead, but I bet you anything these are going to be the matches on the semis.
