I don't think anyone is happy to play Ai these days, she's in the groove for the moment. Tough call. Chanda in three? I prefer Chanda to Ai to play Kim in the quarters...

I'd like Chanda to win, but she's been KILLED by Kim the last few times they played, so I don't think she'll get beyond this match. Ai, on the other hand, could make a surprise Semi-final appearance if she wins here.

i think Ai will give rubin a very tough match. Ai can certainly win it but it does depend on rubin. if rubin plays like she did when she came back from injury last year then she should win but she hasn't played like that for awhile.

i pronbably expect Ai to win because of her current good form.

Chanda had great backhand angles on 3R match at Stadium 2.
So did Ai, but Chanda looked more agressive on each point.Chanda needs to be aggressive all the time. She could be weak sometimes.
If Ai could be as stable as these days (her 3R was too much UEs from both players), she might have a chance.

I'd say Ai in 2... but close one... 7-5, 7-5 or so...
We'll see~
