Eleni is playing well right now. She can mix up her game in order to trouble Pova :p . One thing is for sure - it won't be a track meet out there tommorrow :tape:

well - if sharapova beat henin and mauresmo, who can certainly mix it up as well, than it's not as though she doesn't know how to deal with it.
however perhaps eleni can bring out some of her 2003 form and cause some troubling
her serve is always going to be high percentaged on firsts, he backhand is always going to be considerably weaker than what maria can deal with easily, but keep it low and come up the net is something Eleni can do to make this a very intresting match, still you have to favour sharapova nine times out of ten.

maria in two easy sets hopefully but could potentially be tough if maria is as tired as she says she is!

on clay Eleni has a shot, a slim one at that
indoors or anywhere else not a chance.

having a shot versus winning
are two different things.

So, yes, she has a shot.
Will she win, probably not.

Only way Daniilidou wins this match is if Sharapova is fatigued from last week.

Congrats to Eleni for beating Birnerova, Meusburger, Castano and now Rubin
to get this far, but not exactly stellar competition. Would be shocked if Maria lost a set .

Last year Eleni wasn't in form plus got injured during Olympics in Athens (couldn't even walk) and it was a week or two before the USO. This time I expect her to do better

but the Olympics were in 2004. Her loss was in 2005....unless those shots have long term effects :shrug:

After handily beating Rubin, she should make it interesting. That being said, Masha in 2

LOL True but she was injured anyway, I spoke to her coach before the match vs Sharapova and she told me Eleni has some calf injury. Even during the warm-up before the match (outside the stadium) she wore a special elastic plaster around her leg but removed it when Sharapova entered the practice courts not to show she's not fit.

If she Eleni returns well she has a shot. I won't say easy two but more like 7/5 6/3 to Maria.

Eleni is still slow and out of shape for the elite. We'll see.

Different class of opponent in Maria. Sorry Eleni - Maria wins 6-2, 6-2.

Head to Head :

2005 MIAMI HARD (O) R64 M. SHARAPOVA 6-0 6-4
2005 BIRMINGHAM GRASS (O) Q M. SHARAPOVA 7-5 2-6 6-1
2005 US OPEN HARD (O) R128 M. SHARAPOVA 6-1 6-1

They played a close match in Birmingham but Maria won the other 2 matchs pretty easily.I think Eleni can play very well when she's at her best and she is definitly a very tricky opponent but I still think (and hope) Maria will beat her once again.
Davai Masha :bigclap:

IF Eleni:help: does her best, then she has a shot!!! cos she actually can mix the play, and also she's way more aggressive than say Momo, or JHH and her forehand is a weapon too, and the backhand is a thing of beauty.

Otherwise Masha will serve her some bagels:p

Hope that Masha doesn't withdraw due to fatigue syndrome:o
