Els Callens vs (16) Alexandra Stevenson

Els Callens is probably playing the best tennis of her career the last two years, stepping up her game when playing with the big babes (eg. Serena Williams, Daniela Hantuchova) while Alexandra Stevenson is rather slumpy and erratic with some unexpected losses. They both love somewhat faster surfaces, but Callens saved 4 matchpoints in her last match. Will that boost her confidence or will the double bagel from last time get inside her head?

Code:
2001   Los Angeles     Hardcourt      R16/Q     Stevenson     6-3 6-2 
2001   Zurich          Hardcourt      R16/Q     Stevenson     6-0 6-0


A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I hope Callens can take some sort of revenge, because I don't like Stevenson

I voted for Elsje but I think (I really hope I'm wrong) that Stevenson will win it!

It seems practical to vote for Els, but somewhat I feel it's about time Stevenson won

you think stevenson will take up the match too easy and too light then?

Els is playing very well at the momment, and Alex... it depends what side of the bed she gets out of a morning. If she kind find the form from Fillderstadt or Linz last year then she will easily win, but if she has an off day, dont be suprised if Els snatches this one.
