Marissa Irvin vs. Alexandra Stevenson

Can Irvin pull the "upset" over Alex? Irvin has to be playing well, as she qualifed, while Alex has been in a slump. Alex has lost 7 of her last 10 matches.

irvin has the game to win and she has beaten henin before. both these players are quite similar. they both have big games and are both very inconsistent. irvin has a bit more speed and a bit less power in the serve although she can match stevenson in power. in the past she has played with just as much power.

i want irvin to get in the top 50 but one win won't do that and i want stevenson to get back to the top 20. i think stevenson would have more of a chance against serena but i doubt she would win.

this one is hard to call. i think it will be a three setter unless stevnson is on and then it would be 2 quickish sets.

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

I pick Irvin. I didn't see Alex play thouh, only practice for a bit. Irvin though is playing great tennis. Lindsay Lee played an excellent match gainst her today. Lindsay went for her shots, hit the lines, and Irvin played a great tactical match. She knew when to hit deep, when to go for it, etc. She really made Lindsay overhit quite a few times. She can do the same to Alex.

Go Lindsay Lee-Waters!

Irvin

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.

They are doubles partners for this week also. They've known each other since they were young. They used to play against each other a lot, especially in the junior California circuit along with Venus and Serena. I say that Alex will beat Marissa in 3 sets.

I want Marissa to win this one, I think she's by far the better player, even though the rankings won't show it.
Go Marissa!

You will be a good player if you win this match then get rid of the designated #3 player in the final.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Sir Richard Williams
