Thursday's Predictions

Day four of this new event in Hasslet and play gets underway on the remaining four matches of the second round.

First up on Centre Court is Francesca Schiavone seeded No.5. taking on Nuria Llagostera Vives. Llagostera Vives comes to Hasslet having won the £50k tournament on clay in Lebanon. Schiavone comes in from reaching the US Open fourth round. These two have never met each other before but I am playing safe and saying that Francessca will breeze through in straight sets as Nuria will still be trying to convert her winning streak from the clay to indoor hard courts.
Schiavone beats Llagostera Vives 6/2 6/2

Next up will be Magdalena Maleeva who takes one of the oldest women on the tour Els Callens. The last time these two players faced each other was at the Tokyo Indoors in 2001, with Maleeva taking that match 6/3 6/3. However Els has beaten her in Antwerp but that was all the way back in 1999. These two players are experienced indoors but I will pick Maggie for the title as she has vaster experience than Els, though it will go to three sets.
Maleeva beats Callens 6-7 (3-7) 6-3 6-4 favourite Karolina Sprem will be the third match on court. She takes on Maria Elena Camerin (who recently knocked out Myskina in Bali). Sprem is facing a bit of a decline in her results while Camerin is improving. No head-to-head match-ups but i will pick Sprem in three close sets as she will be desperate to pick up a title to cap an great year for her.7
Sprem beats Camerin 6-4 2-6 6-4

Elena Dementieva is last up and to be honest will beat Michela Pasticova in two sets.
Dementieva beats Pasticova 6-1 6-2

Yes Maleeva will have an easier match, and Dementieva a tougher match, if Pastikova plays like she did against Garbin. And it is HASSELT not Hasslet

yeah come on michaela... you didn't believe that she could keep it up against tax, and she did it, so I hope she'll keep it up again against dementieva and reach the QF , then beat Chladkova to reach the semi (I know I'm dreaming, but claudine and kirsten are out so I'm a bit frustrated lol).

And Francesca will not beat nuria 6-2, 6-2. Nuria was in great shape yesterday against marta and did a great match, she really could upset francesca, but it's gonna be a tough match...

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
