QF finish: a lesson from Capriati for Zvonareva as Jen def. Vera 7-5 6-2

Jennifer Capriati (USA) [2] vs Vera Zvonareva (RUS)
this is their 1st meeting

ROAD TO QF

Vera Zvonareva (RUS)
1R Tatiana Poutchek (BLR) W 6-2 7-5
2R Iva Majoli (CRO) W 6-1 3-6 6-2
3R Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) W 3-6 7-6(5) 6-4
4R Meghann Shaughnessy (USA) W 6-3 4-6 6-2

Jennifer Capriati (USA)
1R Bye
2R Antonella Serra Zanetti (ITA) W 6-4 6-2
3R Denisa Chladkova (CZE) W 6-2 6-2
4R Elena Dementieva (RUS) W 6-4 4-6 6-1

a huge contrast between these 2.........
3 time Grand Slam winner vs no title,
and this is actually Vera's debut in Indian Wells,
but the 2 3 setters vs big hitters must have
taken a lot out of her............
now the biggest hitter in her quarter.....
will she pull thru or will Jennifer
live up to her seeding once again and take Vera out?

Jen will win this

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls"

I fear JenCap wins without own abilities ...

Hopefully Vera can succeed but it's very clear if she starts cursing around the match is gone.
Vera showed classy tennis vs Meghann. So I think she has the skills to beat Jenny - but not the nerves.

JenCap bts VeraZ 6-4 6-4

go

forgive, you will never reach the level of my loyalty for the best that has ever played:

Jen's gonna win in 2! Jen spanked Svetlana Kuznetsova a couple of weeks ago at Dubai, and Vera barely got by her in 3 tough sets. No contest!

GO JENN!!!!
