I hope Dementieva

May 10th, 2006, 02:25 PM
Although I like both, I think that Dementieva is going to win in 3 tight sets.

May 10th, 2006, 02:27 PM
Hingis, get on your revenge!!!

I'll root for Marti as always, but I fear Lena will win :sad:

May 10th, 2006, 03:08 PM

6-4 6-2


May 10th, 2006, 03:13 PM

May 10th, 2006, 03:13 PM

May 10th, 2006, 03:15 PM
Elena in 2 sets

i hope so

May 10th, 2006, 03:24 PM
Lena has too much for hingis, she has a better everything in her game nearly, hingis woyld need to be playing at her best with lena having a shocker to win, lena respects Martina too much aswell to go out and play a blase match which is why the last 3 times they played hingis has only won max 4 games in each match

May 10th, 2006, 03:26 PM
this draw sucks..in the bottom half castano is nearly in the qf...and these girls won't be

May 10th, 2006, 03:28 PM
Lena will smack that weak serve :)
Sth like 6-4 6-3 :)

Both have weak serves, and Lena serve is even worse

May 10th, 2006, 03:29 PM
Martina in two

May 10th, 2006, 03:35 PM
It is question of nerves...

May 10th, 2006, 03:43 PM
i dont want to be be gutted if martina loses so Ill go with dEMENTIEVA!!!

May 10th, 2006, 03:45 PM
Elena wins this one.

May 10th, 2006, 03:48 PM
Elena seems to have Martina's number. I think it'll be a bit closer this time (3 sets), but Dementieva to win again.

May 10th, 2006, 04:39 PM
Lena in two hopefully. As long she doesn't have one of her off days she should win.

May 10th, 2006, 04:46 PM
I want Martina to win so badly, but Dementieva seems to save her "one good day a week" for Martina. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

I seriously hope Martina can win this. If Martina is to win this, she'll have to do it in two sets. She has nowhere near as much stamina as Elena.

May 10th, 2006, 04:50 PM
I think Lena win

May 10th, 2006, 04:54 PM
well Elenas faster ,stronger ,fitter and just too powerful if shes on form ,as far as Serves go ,Lenas is bad ,but shes USED to it ,so has built a game that can overcome that ,plus its been getting better lately ,Hinigis has the tactical edge and better net play ,but thats it. That said , Elena could fail to show up properly and therefore very easily lose, plus the law of averages say that after absolutely crushing Hingis 3 times in a row ,it could be time for a loss ,hopefully not! We will have to see ,If lena plays crap ,then only her superior stamina and athletic abilty may save her if it got to three...

May 10th, 2006, 05:09 PM
Elena in 3

May 10th, 2006, 05:10 PM
HINGIS in two easy sets..3 and 3 ... :bounce:

May 10th, 2006, 05:19 PM
Lena in 3 :D

May 10th, 2006, 05:29 PM
Dementieva probably...but with those two, who really knows.

May 10th, 2006, 05:29 PM
Go Lena! Smack her around! :drool:

May 10th, 2006, 05:31 PM
I'd like to see Martina win but don't think it is going to happen.

May 10th, 2006, 05:33 PM
Martina in 2 sets

May 10th, 2006, 05:35 PM
Both have weak serves, and Lena serve is even worse

Lena's serve isn't that bad anymore!! no double faults today and 1 ace!! :D

May 10th, 2006, 05:38 PM
Elena 6-4 6-2

I hope I'm wrong because I want Hingis to win but she has been less than impressive on red clay so far this season...this'll be a big test to see if she really can contend with the top players at the French

May 10th, 2006, 05:46 PM
Well since the majority Think THAT Dementieva might Win


Anyways, Player Comparison


Returns...Elena Dementieva

Backhands....Martina Hingis

Forehands...Elena Dementieva

Short Rallies favor Martina Hingis


volleys/Transition ...Martina Hingis

Fighting Spirit...Martina Hingis probably Learned a lesson the last time they played...so SHe's going to FIGHT HARDER & believe in herself more!!!!!

Martina Hingis in 3 LONG TOUGH SETS!!!!!!!!

something like 6-3 1-6 6-2

I think it could be a very interesting match, if both ladies played their best. I admire them both; too sad they have to face each other in a third round.

I think the match is going to be pretty match on Lena’s hands. Martina does not have the physical power Lena does have, so it is going to be a question of how well Martina responds to Lena’s attacking game. If Dementieva plays a solid game, she will totally win it. If she’s shaky, Martina could finish it off in two sets.

May 10th, 2006, 06:00 PM
me thinks Hingis, but Dawaj Lena!

May 10th, 2006, 06:13 PM
Lena is the fav considering Martina's performance is not upto the mark in clay and Lena has won their last 3 meetings but I HOPE MARTINA WINS..Go Martina!!:bounce::bounce:

May 10th, 2006, 06:16 PM
Lena will smack that weak serve :)
Sth like 6-4 6-3 :)

weak? elena's is worse :rolleyes:

May 10th, 2006, 06:58 PM
Lena in 3, tight i hope it'll be a good match as it should;)

May 10th, 2006, 07:01 PM
Lena. She is in good shape. Martina isn't
Come on Lena :)

May 10th, 2006, 07:02 PM
Go Martina :worship:

May 10th, 2006, 07:05 PM
Dementieva easy in 2.

May 10th, 2006, 07:17 PM
Damn, I hate this draw so much. Why couldn't Martina have been on the other side of the draw? :sad:

May 10th, 2006, 08:30 PM
weak? elena's is worse :rolleyes:
Lena gives a good smack on her 2nd serve these days, she goes for it more plus there is always a good bit of slice and spin on it which can be tricky on clay. Hingis's serve is just a dolly and she doesnt have the power of lena to back it up which is why i went 4 lena :)

May 10th, 2006, 08:50 PM
HINGIS in two easy sets..3 and 3 ... :bounce:

:woohoo: Of course that's the score I want to see but I will be happy if Marti even wins a set...Lena is just one of those handfull of players that because of her speed is very tough for Hingis to beat..Of course for the purpose of this poll I had to vote for Martina>P

May 10th, 2006, 08:52 PM
Damn, I hate this draw so much. Why couldn't Martina have been on the other side of the draw? :sad: I know :sad:

May 10th, 2006, 09:09 PM
The outcome of the match is irrelevant. Lena is perfect. So there.

May 10th, 2006, 09:13 PM
My head says Lena, but I have a feeling Martina will win - 76 75.

I don't know why, but I'm rooting for Hingis. :cuckoo: I am a bigger fan of Dementieva than Martina...Weird. :lol:

May 10th, 2006, 09:16 PM
Impossible to guess. Their serves will both be broken at least 10 times each for sure.

May 10th, 2006, 09:40 PM

May 10th, 2006, 10:00 PM
dementieva in 3.

May 10th, 2006, 11:17 PM
Martina, it doesnt matter if it's 2 or 3 sets..(hoping) ;)

May 11th, 2006, 12:33 AM
