Got to go win Shinobu! :D Myskina's been slumping and Shinobu's been playing great her last two tournaments (4R Nasdaq, now 3R here). Good luck Shinobu! :yeah:

Asagoe in three.

Despite Myskina's struggles this year I think she will take this. It will be in 3 sets of course. Nothing seems to come easy these days with the exception of her wins at Miami.

Miskina in straights, Shinobi doesn't have the weapons to beat her I think.

im not sure. I enjoy both players and it all depends on who's the aggressor. Both are counter punchers and their serves are not the greatest. I think myskina may have the edge having played with top players and beating them. but then again this is myskina......and you know how she can be. If shinobu wins that will lots for her confidence. and she'll only get better.

From myskinas interview it seems all shinobu has to do is make the match boring. haha

``I played really well that first set, but then I got a little bored,'' Myskina said. ``I was thinking, when is this match going to finish, and the next thing I knew I was down 4-love. When you're down 4-love it's hard to come back. "

Myskina 6-0 7-6(25)

the match can go either way

a) if myskina wakes up come sout with somewhere near decent tennis she will win in 2

b) if asagoe is on and myskina is slightly off asagoe will win in 3

Anastasia has a 12 match winning streak on clay.

If Myskina doesn't get bored, then Myskina in 2.

Nastya in straights, let's hope she doesn't get bored and finish the business!

Apr 7th, 2005, 02:31 PM
Asagoe in 3!

I think Asagoe can surprise here - I love Myskina and think she's a great player but something isn't right with her at the moment and I think Asagoe has what it takes to take the match off her.
