I'm still fearing Garrigues in 3rd rnd.

But I'd say Ana 75 63 :)

meh Ana clearly own her now - Ana's mind blowing forehand easily overpowers Momo topsy-turvy one handed backand - and Ana's just a relaxed player when she playes Momo so really for Ana there's no competition - provided she gets past Garrigues. I seriously dont know why other Ana fans are not freaking out about that - I saw this match between Garrigues and JuJu - my God Garrigues hits the ball so hard and flat - she's gonna give Ana a lot of trouble - and she also won a title this year.

Should the match up occur, and Amelie plays as well as she has all reason, She should slaughter Ana. An's two victories have come when Amelie is at her most fragile. And Amelie can play like patty can with varying spins and so on (patty having a flawless record against Ana).

So yeah Amelie.

Gosh their match ups are becoming old... i'd like to see Ana facing some other top players for a change!

Amelie wants to hit it against Ana in baseline rallies but she has lost that battle badly last couple of times :p

I was going to type that, but i don't know how close they are. Tthey seem to like each other well enough.

But really Amelie playing decent should beat Ana. Ana is good, but if Amelie plays just well, she could be the victor. She has all the weapons needed to dispose of Ana rather handily.

she can't help her, Amelie owns Patty. Maybe Amelie will pass some wisdom to Ana after she congratulates her at the net :p

Without a doubt continuous baseline play is not Amelie's strength. She'll lose these type of rallies against quite a few player. But it she can vary it up a little, not be afraid to head to the net ... she'll do the schooling. :p

Though i think Ana quite likes this surface, she did quite well here last year, losing to Amelie while injured. This Match up looks very likey to be on the cards!

Amélie's h2h with Patty isn't the question at hand, but what Patty does to beat Ana is :devil:

beating her twice is not ownage. Amelie has beat her thrice! AO 2005, Doha 2005 and Miami 2005, twice in str8 sets.

Ana is very very good, which is has been able to beat Amelie - but both times Amelie has been vulnerable. Just off Vacation (probably sipping to much wine following her YEC glory) .. while Ana had been in Australia since early december.. playing. Then at the FO ... Ana applied a lot of pressure .. and Amelie fought hard, but crumbled in that final game. Double fault on match point! She helped beat herself that day.

Amelie should be favoured.

Wrong.
Ana deserved that Paris victory she fought for that match - dont put it down as "momo beat herself".
Ana was in a rellly bad form at and b4 AO so she's clearly deserved that victory too. But lest wait and see - is stosur playing Momo in rnd 2 - coz i think Sam could easily bt her.
