-)(-SUGIYAMA VS SAFINA-)(-2R War

Dinara just came off her win over none other than
Anna K in her debut here........
another good opponent for Dinara,
Ai lays different style than Dinara of course,
another typical veteran vs youngster match.
Ai came off a Tier II title,
but Dinara has lost 4 times in 5 tournaments she played,
with the momentum of defeating Anna K,
can she carry that into another upset?

Your speaking of Anna like she is at the top! She is far from being competitive! Dinara just needed to get on the court and play to win! Ai will win 6-2, 6-3

dinara certainly has the talent but with Ai being in such good form i don't know whether dinara will win. Ai's form seems to be lessening from her indian wells performance where she lost to rubin. rubin is a good player but is nothing like a clijsters. if Ai's form drops again then i would give dinara a big chance.

i think this will be a 3 set match but picking the winner is difficult because we don't know whether dinara will have problems closing out the match if she gets the chance.

i'll go out on a limb and say dinara will win in 3.

I am just fuming at Anna's loss. Man she boggles my mind . Oh right. I don't care too much, but I like Dinara, so Dinara in two.

i don't know what game does Safina played before. but i think if mentally, Ai is much better than Safina, i guess this would be very close match but Ai in 2, like 6-3 6-4
