Martina's SF opponent :

Okie Marti-Party!!!

Who would you rather choose to be Martina's semifinal opponent?

Who do you think will give Martina a tougher challenge?

Given the injury, I think Venus would be an easier opponent. Even taking the injury out of consideration, I think Martina prefers to play Venus than Seles.

Although, Martina has been coming into net more often this tournament and that tactic will work better against a baseliner like Seles than Venus who comes in quite a lot herself.

So, basically, I'm not sure.

Being a Monica fan, i would rather see Monica make the semi's to play Martina. And that way, if Marti lost, not that she will, but IF she did, i would still have Monica to support, rather than Venus. As for who i would be the better opponent for Martina, i have no idea!!

Yeap part of me wants to have Martina meet Monica in the semis so as to try and reverse the trend she experienced against Seles last year during the US hardcourt season.

Venus - so they can continue their exciting rivalry.


But i guess it doesn't matter how Martina plays in the semis so long as she plays her best tennis.

And if Martina wins the AO title, it would be great for her to win over a couple of the big hitters and hence stop all the &^$% from the bashers who keep harping about her not winning a GS/losing to big hitters/winning titles when the big hitters have lost earlier...

i know i shouldn't left these *&$#@ get to me but it would be great to shut them up - at least for a while!
