CONCHITA vs AMANDA qf predictions.

Wow I am so happy that the veterans on the tour like Amanda, Chanda, Ai, Conchita are doing really well lately.

Now if only Mary Pierce will get her butt in shape.

Anyways, I digress. Didn't Amanda beat Conchita easily last time they played? I would say Amanda is playing better right now and will be very very tough for Conchita since Amanda is fast and makes few errors. So I will pick Amanda. But would love for either to win. Conchita really needs some ranking pts but I love to see Amanda moving right back up through the top 20!!!!

Very interesting match up, because although on form one would have to give Amanda the edge, on their record you would have to say this is going to be a decent fight (and probably quite long too ).

Amanda and Conchita have not played since 2000. Before RG 1997 Conchita had a 10-0 head2head versus Amanda, and for the purposes of predicting the winner of this match I think it is more relvant to look at their records since Amanda got that first win in 1997.


1997 French Open Clay (O) 16 Amanda COETZER 6-7 6-4 6-3
1997 Stanford Hard (O) SF Conchita MARTINEZ 4-6 0-6
1998 Amelia Island Clay (O) SF Conchita MARTINEZ 4-6 0-6
1998 US Open Hard (O) 16 Amanda COETZER 6-4 4-6 6-2
2000 Miami Hard (O) 16 Amanda COETZER 6-1 6-2
2000 Berlin Clay (O) FR Conchita MARTINEZ 1-6 2-6

As you can see they are 3-3. Conchita won the last encounter quite easily, but if we look more closely Amanda has won their last two meetings on a hardcourt and absolutely thrashed Conchi at Miami which is the surface most similar to this.

Because Amanda has historically struggled against Conchita this must be considered a danger match for her - although IMO she deserves to win after her two fine victories to reach this round.

As always I will be cheering for the little assassin!

H2h

Amanda COETZER (RSA) v Conchita MARTINEZ (ESP)

1989 Phoenix Hard (O) SF Conchita MARTINEZ 0-6 3-6
1990 Scottsdale Hard (O) QF Conchita MARTINEZ 3-6 2-6
1992 Boca Raton Hard (O) SF Conchita MARTINEZ 6-4 3-6 0-6
1992 Kitzbuhel Clay (O) SF Conchita MARTINEZ 1-6 3-6
1992 Olympics-Barcelona Clay (O) 16 Conchita MARTINEZ 4-6 3-6
1994 Stratton Mountain Hard (O) SF Conchita MARTINEZ 4-6 4-6
1995 Amelia Island Clay (O) QF Conchita MARTINEZ 5-7 0-6
1996 Fed Cup (WG-QF) Clay (O) R2 Conchita MARTINEZ 5-7 3-6
1996 French Open Clay (O) 16 Conchita MARTINEZ 2-6 3-6
1997 Hilton Head Clay (O) QF Conchita MARTINEZ 1-6 3-6
1997 French Open Clay (O) 16 Amanda COETZER 6-7 6-4 6-3
1997 Stanford Hard (O) SF Conchita MARTINEZ 4-6 0-6
1998 Amelia Island Clay (O) SF Conchita MARTINEZ 4-6 0-6
1998 US Open Hard (O) 16 Amanda COETZER 6-4 4-6 6-2
2000 Miami Hard (O) 16 Amanda COETZER 6-1 6-2
2000 Berlin Clay (O) FR Conchita MARTINEZ 1-6 2-6

Conchita MARTINEZ (ESP) leads 13 : 3

They haven't played in almost 3 years, so it's hard to say who will win especially given Conchita's unpredictability. It should be a tough match, but I expect AMANDA to win this one in straight sets.

Thanks for the info. I think I was getting Amanda's matches with Conchita confused with her matches against Arantxa. Did not realize that Conchita had such a lead H2H but like you all pointed out it has been fairly even recently.

Oh my God, that US Open match was TOOOOOOORTURE.

But Amanda is playing so much more aggressively this year. Conchita will slice and dice her way into the match, but I think Amanda will pull this out in three.

Sounds like most feel that Amanda will win. Should be interesting.
