Who do you expect to win this match. The winner is 99% likely to face Venus Williams. I think Pierce's experience will carry her through this one, but I don't know how well Petrova is playing. I think Venus will have an easier time with Pierce so I hope she wins.

Petrova is too unconsistent... Pierce is too old... this is a hard choice...

I hope Mary beats Petrova. I wanted her to do well, but of course if she faces I will be pulling for Queen Venus. But hopefully Mary will come through... :kiss:

I think none of them will be able to uphold Venus...

I think Petrova will win since she moves a tiny bit better and has a better serve.

Mary will win for sure, she has the experience and seems to lift when she is representing her country. Go Mary you can do it.

Depends on how good Nadya's. She's been in a slump lately. Though in her last tournament she's unlucky to play Likhovtseva who went on to the final. When Nadya's on. Fancy Nadya.

Yeah, but Mary has also been folding to higher ranked players...I say Petrova.

in fact Petrova moves terrible, but a lot better than Mary :D . Mary is as lethal as always with her groundstrokes but she doesn't want to run.

About the serve, I disagree, Petrova's serve is way overrated, it's fast, and she can serve to the corners but that's it, she doesn't change pace/placing, doesn't hide it well and worse, she is very inconsistent.

Mary's serve is not that spectacular but it's IMO one of the best in the game, she places it well, hides it well, changes it all the time and when she is on, it's a real weapon.
