Re: WWW Beijing 1/4 Final Kerber v Sugarpova???

Tough to call. I feel Kerber is playing more passively and not going for as many winners when she gets the opportunity as she was when she beat Maria in Paris -- and, contrary to popular belief, you can't beat Maria in good form by purely Wozniacki-like defending, you need to properly counterpunch and turn defence into attack and not give her a chance to stay in the point. BUT, whether Maria is actually in good form remains to be seen, and if she's as ragged and unfocussed as she was in Tokyo last week, even Kerber playing pure defence will probably be able to beat her.

Going with Maria to win 2-6 6-4 6-3 or something like that.
