Well Mary's USO this year looks very much like last year's USO. Two easy matches and an upset of a youngster (last year Dokic, this year Masha). In the round of 16 again she is up against an up and coming Russian (last year Myskina, this year Sveta). However, this year the result will be different IMO. Mary will beat Sveta in a touch baseline slugfest to gain her first GS Quarter since RG 2002 ... :worship: :worship: :worship:
I HOPE Mary can win in 2!!!! BTW, I love that picture of Mary. That forehand :hearts:

I hope Mary in straights. Not to jinx it but i would give ANYTHING to see her win a GS at this stage of her career. She is capable of doing it and hopefully she will :)

I think Mary can win this one with the way she's playing!
Sep 5th, 2004, 07:30 AM
Sveta in 2

well, mary turned pro in 1990, won her first major in 95, won her 2nd in 00, so she this isn't her year for a major, next year she'll get one (haha), and i believe sveta will win this one and actually also beat justine in the qfs!

hoping that Mary can cruise trough..
It's not easy for her...if she couldn't pkay consistently
but if she's on ....No Doubt..

I haven't seen a match of either player so far so really dunno what form they are in but beating Maria is definitely something (of course beating Amy on this surface is just as much of an accomplishment) and Mary beat Venus at the Games, which speaks volumes. I think it could go either way but predict Mary's experience will pull her through.

Mary the body vs The mighty thighs.
Well I think this match will be very interesting it could go neither way. I think Sveta is more talented than Maria despite Maria won a GS but not Sveta yet. However Mary is in the form of her life and as anyone knows when you are in form anything is possible as I think it will be 3 sets to the body. :)

Anybody saw how Sharapova's 2nd serve was severely dealt by Mary especially in the 3rd set...???:rolleyes:
I think Mary now is much better in sustaining her momentum...especially against a player of Sharapova's quality...Sharapova pounded the ball and Mary just keeps the level higher...:angel:
But enuff of that match....Kuznetsova, now...if Mary is pretty much in the same form ( which I have a feeling she will be) she will win this match...:angel:
Go Mary!!!!!!!!!!!:bounce: :bounce:
Sep 5th, 2004, 10:29 AM
Both are really really good players but I have the feeling that Svetlana will win this one (in 3 sets) :bounce:

Mary, I have every confidence in her.
I didn't like Sveta yesterday, she wasn't exactly over joyed about advancing.

Two players who are worthy to be under the last 16. The winner won't be an unworthy QF. Think it will be a good match. Gotta go for M.Pierce in 3 sets.

I saw Sveta's match against Amy and she was making quite a few unforced errors and it was generally an average performance at best from her. She'll need to pick it up, if she wants to contend. Mary will have to take advantage of those break-point opportunities.
Sep 5th, 2004, 11:29 AM
Sveta :D :) go girl
her FH can more than match Mary's ;) and she's a terrier on court :)
go Sveta :)
Sep 5th, 2004, 11:39 AM
COME ON MARY !!!! Just do it !!!! :bounce: :banana:
I think Mary wins in 2.
Sep 5th, 2004, 01:58 PM
Sveta in 2
Sep 5th, 2004, 04:58 PM
Mary in 2.
Sep 5th, 2004, 05:01 PM
Svetlana in two sets...
If Pierce gets her UE's fixed, she might have a chance!

This match is too close to call, but I will give the edge to Mary as I was not impresed with Svetlana's match yesterday.
