1 Mauresmo def. Chakvetadze 63 62 - Amelie already spanked 1 Russian. It will be a repeat performance

Hingis def. 5 Dementieva 76 26 76 - Break-fest galore. I know Lena won in Tokyo but this surface allows Martina to track down Lena's shots better. It will be tight.

3 Henin-Hardenne def. 15 Kirilenko 75 75 - Lil Masha still does not have that extra something to take out one of the top players

6 Kuznetsova def. Bammer 60 63 - :yawn:

Li def. Castano 64 62 - Li reaches her first Tier I QF :D . She can do everything Castano can do except slide on clay but she has far more power

4 Schnyder def. Smashnova 64 46 75 - A match with alot of variety from both sides of the court but Patty will pull through

10 Safina def. 8 Hantuchova 26 75 60 - This match is almost too hard to predict with 2 of the most unpredictable players on tour but Safina has shown good form in this tournament

Zheng def. 2 Petrova 06 63 63 - And for my bold upset prediction of the day, little 5'4" Jie will slay Goliath Nadia in 3 sets by frustrating her by tracking down all of her shots. Nadia will be pissed and proceed to throw the match :devil:

Amelie Mauresmo (1) v. Anna Chakvetadze
Amelie hasn't really come to Berlin with a lot of clay court play this season, unlike past years. However, unlike past years, she's the #1 player in the world with a grand slam title to her credit. Anna, so far hasn't been seemingly tested. However, Mauresmo is no ordinary opponent. This should be in interesting match. Anna has the game to challenge the top players, but as we've seen, especially at the 2005 US Open, her reputation as a possible giant-killer sometimes spooks her and she leaves at inopportune times in big matches.
Prediction: Amelie in 3 or 2 with a 7-5 or tie-break

Martina Hingis v. Elena Dementieva (5)
Martina has been solid, if not extrordinary this year. However, her loss to Venus at Warsaw was a huge confidence drainer. Hopefully she can pick up the pieces and figure out how to do what no one did at the 2004 French Open, until the final...USE DEMENTIEVA'S SERVE AGAINST HER. In this match, the person who holds more than 2 times in ANY set will probably win. They both have similar games: good off the ground, terrible off the serve, and good court movement. However, Martina has a superior net-game and is much more court-wise than Elena. When they played in Tokyo, Dementieva used her strong forehand to pummel Hingis. This slower surface will probably neutralize that shot a bit more, making this a much more even match-up.
Prediction: Martina in 3

Justine Henin-Hardenne (3) v. Maria Kirilenko (15)
When Justine lost to Schnyder at the Family Circle Cup earlier this year, that sent an alarm through the WTA ranks: Justine is beatable on clay by someone other than Serena Williams! When she's healthy, she's tough to beat, but now, it's not an impossiblity. Maria is a very good player, with some real clay credentials. However, Patty was playing incredible tennis that day. Unfortunately, she couldn't carry it on into the next round. Justine should get through, but this one could be really interesting.
Prediction: Justine in 2 with a 7-5 or tie-break

Sybille Bammer v. Svetlana Kuznetsova (6)
Coming off her third consecutive runner-up finish at Warsaw, Kuznetsova showed that she's consistently good on clay, just not good enough to beat the likes of Venus, Justine, and Kim. Looking at the draw, if you would have told me that Sybille Bammer would make it to the sixteens, I would have peed from laughter, despite the fact that, after Elena Likhovtseva, she was the second highest-ranked player in her portion of the draw. Not really much to say here, Sybille hasn't had a real Tier I match yet, she'll get it tomorrow. I just hope all of those aces and forehand winners don't leave exit wounds.
Prediction: Svetlana in 2 easily


Catalina Castano v. Na Li
These are two very good players. I know that they both played good tennis to get here, but it's tough to say who the favorite is. Na was down a set (1-6), in her first round match when her opponent retired. Castano has had 2 rough 3 setters. Na has been injured and actually retired from her final last week. I don't know about her injures but too many long matches on clay can be mentally and physically exhausting. In this match, the person who holds their nerve better will win, and since Na's been in bigger matches that this one, I think she'll pull through.
Prediction: Na in 3

Anna Smashnova v. Patty Schnyder (4)
It's good to see Anna's name still in a draw. It's been a while since she's had to play a top player because of injuries. Patty is playing great, and it seems like she does well after getting by a tough opponent. She still seems to be floating after beating Justine. She ran through her last opponent, and while she may want to do the same her, I just don't think Anna's goning to make this one easy. Patty will win, but she's going to have to earn it.
Prediction: Patty in 2 tough sets

Daniela Hantuchova (8) v. Dinara Safina (10)
Dinara lost less games in two matches than Daniela did in one. Losing a set at love to a player ranked out of the top 25 doesn't really bode well for a player going into a match against a player with some real game. So far Safina hasn't been troubled, but Daniela's a much better player than the likes of Peschke and Sanchez-Lorenzo (although they have produced come great upsets in the past 12 months). Safina seems to be on top of her game now, and hopefully that sets her up with a quarterfinal match-up with her compatriot, Petrova.
Prediction: Dinara in 2 with a 7-5 or tie-break
Jie Zheng v. Nadia Petrova (2)
The player with the best record on clay this year. World #4, favorite for the French. Lots of accolades for a player, who before this year was called a choker for not winning a title. Once she got over that hump though late last year, she has been stoic in finals, keeping her cool and taking tournament trophies home as well. Although Zheng just won in Portugal, Nadia is not like anyone Zheng faced last week. Nadia should get through this one...but I don't think it will be a cakewalk.
Prediction: Nadia in 2 tough sets

Quarterfinal Predicted Match-ups:

Amelie Mauresmo (1) v. Martina Hingis
Justine Henin-Hardenne (3) v. Svetlana Kuznetsova (6)
Na Li v. Patty Schyder (4)
Dinara Safina (10) v. Nadia Petrova (2)

If th lena - Hingis match goes to 3 there will only be one winner and thats the queen of 3 setters lenaD, the only chance Martina is gonna have is if lena had a bad day and she eases through in straights, thats the only way i see hingis winning, Hingis's record in 3 set matches since her comeback is not the best
