Vera vs. Nadia

Since this is such a great time for all you Russian fans, I was wondering who do you want to win? Who do you think will win? Why? Just your opinions, no arguments necessary.

I would like Vera to win, I but thats because she is one of my favortie players.

But Its so great to know that one of the Russians is going to be in the semis, and there ranking is going to go sky high! I think Nadia and Vera have been waiting for this in a long time.

BTW does anyone know this. Vera lists her most memorable momment as being beaten by Nadia 6-0 6-0. Maybe this time she will get revenge.

I am neutral on that. I think Vera will take it though. She is more consistent, less streaky, she is more stable mentally. Her game is likelier not to break under pressure. But that's a close call.

Petrova win win 6-3-4-6 6-3. She has the bigger weapons and her fine serve will be the difference in surviving the tenacious Zvonareva.

Another thing in Zvnareva's favour is that she has a greater big match experience.


And you know why Vera won? Because
I JINXED VENUS. Right after seeing the RG draw, I realised that one of our girls will be playing Venus in R16. And so I changed my signature to what it is now, hoping that the "WAS" word will jinx Venus. And it worked!

I want Nadia to win. Nadia. Because Nadia has been playing well for this entire tournament plus her Rome performance was also great. I don't think consistency will be a problem for her. Besides, she has played close matches before and knows she has more experience than Vera. The fact that her serve hasn't broke down yet is testament that Nadia has finally found consistency. Good luck and please show me a good match girls!

ys is using reverse psychology. I like it!

I hope ESPN2 shows a good part of the Zvonareva - Petrova match tomorrow. But I think the other women's matches will take precedence over the Vera - Nadia match.

geez, after watching the match between nadia and jennifer, i think it would be a very hard match between the both Vera and Nadia. My heart really wants vera to win, but i really have no clue who can pull this out...Vera is a better fighter tho

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

boy, I'm torn at this match too...
This match is big for both and whoever wins really deserves the spot in the semi and even the final itself...

I only get to watch Vera's play and none of Nadia so far this week. But based all the reviews, seems that Nadia really played well against Jenny but Vera is really mentally very tough.

Still can't make up my mind but I have a gut feeling that Vera will win.

May the best girl wins today , and I will be equally happy.

My pray just two hours before the match:

Please, let no one gets injured in this match, as it happens so often in matches between our girls..
