Nadia Petrova def. Jennifer Capriati 6-3 4-6 6-3

As expected...
So, who do you guys think will be the surprise semifinalist, Vera or Nadia?
My money is on Nadia, and I think she has a good chance to get to the final also... that would be something!

Vera. She is mentally tougher and has more big match experience, and that's all that matters at this point.

Congrats Nadia!!!

About this upset, I am happy dor some reason

I still think Vera has a bigger chance to reach the semis. After her tremendous win over Venus, he will be boosted by confidence. Look at that girl's reach. Vee just couldn't hit winners at the end because she got all the balls back over the net.

Nadia.

I had no idea how hard she hit. I guess it will depend on whether her game is on. I really do not care which one wins, but I was more impressed with Nadia's power.

OMG, RG started out like pure crap, but boy oh boy did it even turn around. OMG im in euphoria right now. i'm both equally happy for Nadia and Vera, took out 2 awesome players. i would want Naida to get to the semi's but i really don't care right now. i'll be tremendously happy for either one, and quite frankyl, they have a pretty good shot for the finals!!!!!!!! go Vera and Nadia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova

I like Petrova, the match I saw with her playing monica convinced me that she has gotten better.

She beat Jen and that's no small feat.

Darn Russians!!!!

If Vera meets Kim, I think Kim will easily brush her aside.
But Nadia can challenge Kim in my opinion, her serve alone will trouble Kim!
Imagine a total surprising final: Rubin vs Petrova !

Yeah, congrats Nadia

I reckon Nadia will make it through, Jen was playing great today but Nadia still did it, I think it shows that she's very talented and could go far.

VERA ZVONAREVA DANIELA HANTUCHOVA

JELENA JANKOVIC TATIANA GOLOVIN

ANA IVANOVIC FLAVIA PENNETTA

NICOLE VAIDISOVA MARIA SHARAPOVA

I think VERA. she will make nadia move more than Jenny did and will also change the pace more. but it could go either way. both played great.
