Question Myskina vs. Mauresmo...who will hold the Moscow trophy?

Soon enough, Anastasia Myskina, the fastest player on tour, will take on Amelie Mauresmo, who strikes the heaviest groundstrokes on tour. Who will walk away the Moscow champion, and who will hang their head in defeat?

They are two of the most "zoned" players in the game. Myskina doesn't play very well consistently, but when she does she wins 11 straight games off of Hingis, 12 of 14 against Petrova, 12 of 15 (numerous times) against Hantuchova, 10 straight games off of Rubin, and some blitzing wins over the Belgians.

Mauresmo is much the same way. She starts slowly and often loses from ghastly, terrible play, but when she gets in a rythym she is basically flawless from every part of the court.

To my knowledge, Mauresmo won their only match at Wimbledon over a year ago 6-4 6-2 or something like that, but Myskina is better now and Mauresmo is worse.

Under normal circumstances I'd say Mauresmo will win, but Myskina's list of victims the last few weeks include big names such as upset specialist Serna, Russian-conquerer Pistolesi, the HUGELY powerful Daniilidou (who plays very much like Mauresmo), the rising, powerful Petrova, and of course, Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin.

Thus, Myskina will prevail 6-3 6-4. Go Nastya!

4 tournaments since NY. 4 Russian champions. Nastya is 0-for-2 against Amelie. But they haven't played since 2002 Wimbledon.
Should be a good match.
Make it 5-for-5 Nastya!

I think Mauresmo will win something like 6-3, 4-6, 6-2. Then in her interview she will say she is going to be #1. LOL.

mauresmo beat dementieva in straight sets and she's been on fire lately. on the other hand mauresmo did double bagel dementieva earlier in the year didn't she? myskina played great in her last tournament and it wouldn't shock me if she beat mauresmo. actually i'd be very happy if she did because i said that she had already found her top game and that she couldn't improve anymore and i would be very very happy if she proved me wrong.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Nastya is on a great run now. Beating Justine in Leipzig and getting to the final in Moscow.
Amelie is very tough. She has to be the favorite.

I don' appreciate those people like you who are always telling lies about what the other says.
I don't remenber Amelie said she would be #1. She said that being the number one was her goal. She's in the top 10 for quite a while now and she's a tennis professionnal...what's wrong with that?

It was a joke. Mauresmo is very talented and can challenge for the #1 spot. I never said anything was wrong with her aspiring to be #1.
