Maria versus Ashley!

Should be interesting:

Maria Sharapova (RUS) v. Ashley Harkleroad (USA).

It will be 3rd match on court 3 tomorrow. Good luck to both!

PS I've seen both girls play, and both have good stuff, hope it will be good cat fight!

I would prefer they play on court 2. And I think Maria will win in 3 sets.

Maria in 2 sets if she is in hot form and Ashley plays bad

or

Maria in 3 sets if both are hot in form

or

Ashley in 3 sets if Maria plays with her one leg in hot form

Sharky, we posted simultaneously! That means good luck for Maria!

I just checked and it is definatley third on court 2. I'm looking forward to this match. I saw Harkleroad warming up at the DFS and her forehand often failed her. Other than that I have never seen any of them actually play a match I have heard so much about them that I am sure it will be a great match!

So I will be watching what could be a great match with an unbias view. I'll let you know who I end up cheering for

Thanks RayRob! Court 2 is one of the show courts which means that ESPn will probably show some of the match. They promtoed Ashley in their Wimbledon preview show. So I would imagine they would show some of her match against Maria if not feature it.

All I hope is that they are not wearing the same damn outfit...

As much as Ash is my fave...Maria's game is more suitable to the grass...I think Ash will have to go away from her regular game to win this one...She has to come to net and mix up the pace...I hope she doesnt get into a hitting contest with Maria...she tends to want to do that against the big girls...the serve will be the deciding factor in this match...

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

What are the other matches that will be played at the same time? ESPN has a habit of NOT showing good matches that fans are waiting for... or maybe they'll just re-run that Hewitt loss again.

Agassi could be on at the same time, so if it's ESPN then they will prolly show that one
