Today Chanda and Elena will face off. If Chanda wins today she advances to the Semi-Finals. If Elena wins today Amelie advances to the Semi-Final. The presssure is on. Anyway I want to know what the popular opinion.

Who will win?

I'll start.

I think Chanda will take this. I dunno if it will be in 2 or 3 sets, but with her play is anywhere near as good as it has been, then she should be able to win.

Exclamation

Chanda will win, but she'd better do it in straight sets.

I hope Elena can pull it off, so amelie can advacne but chanda has been playing really well this week

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Chanda goes in as the favourite, as she has played really well these champs. But Elena is at her best as an underdog.

I think this match is deceptively close as there are too many factors, but I hope Elena wins in two!!

I hope Chanda wins, but Elena can really take chances in this match. She nothing to lose but her pride.

You can't say that Elena wasn't the underdog against Amelie and Kim. Because apparently this 'underdog factor' isn't enough to win more than 5 games.

What I meant is at this point, no-one expects Elena to win.

When she came into this tournament, she was well rested, and I believed she had a chance against all of the other players.

After two losses, it doesn't look good, so now in my eyes, Elena actually is the underdog.

This match really could go either way, and I think it will be fascinating to watch. If Elena wins the 1st set, I expect her to take the match.

Elena has nothing to lose against Chanda, and she has less pressure. On the other hand, she may have less inspiration to win than Chanda has. With Chanda's form recently, she will definitely be the favourite in this match.

I like Chanda. I think she can win if she play like what she did all week.

I do think Elena will fight out since this is her last match, her last match to get points, she has nothing to lose, she beat Chanda before (Iknow this reason is lame but it has advantage). She can't get to semifinal, but she still can get that third place. She will fight for it, I guess, BUT she can also give up and tank this match cause this match won't affect her place in semifinal.

I want to see Momo to get into semifinal, so go Elena Sorry Chanda but if Chanda wins, I'd be happy too.
