Who will win this match?

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:39 AM
go maria :)

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:40 AM
Venus is going to have to pick up her game a little quicker than usual. Vee in three, maybe. Possibly two. :shrug: .

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:40 AM
Venus in 2

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:40 AM
venus in 3 or venus in two tough sets (if shes playing like today...)

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:40 AM
Venus in two! :D

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:41 AM
Venus in 2.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:41 AM

V. Williams leads 1-0

2005 US Open 2nd Round 6-1 6-3

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:42 AM
I say Vee in a match like today. One tight one, and one that's a little easier.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:43 AM
Venus wins 6-2, 6-3

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:44 AM
Venus in 2.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:45 AM
Masza just win a couple of games. :help:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:47 AM
Venus in 2

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:50 AM
Go Makiri !!!

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:52 AM
venus in 3 or venus in two tough sets (if shes playing like today...)

I did not watch the match but even then I still think Venus will win in comfortable straight sets. I just don't think Maria's game bothers Venus at all and Kirilenko's lack of success the past 18 months does not help her cause. Venus will win in a similar fashion to 6-3 6-4.

Kirilenko in 3

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:54 AM
Venus in two.

Good luck Venus, play your game and you will win.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:55 AM
Venus in 2 sets.

Venus was just a little rusty from not playing in over a month. The way she played today will be no different that Serena, Kim, or Justine.

All of these players play the same way during the first week of a major tournament. By the second week they are up and running fine.

Maria Kirilenko is not that good. Besides she doesn't have the power or weapons to hurt Venus.

The last time they played, Venus hadn't played in a long time and she beat Kirilenko with ease. It was Serena she took to 3 hard and difficult sets.

Look at Shara Peer. She had several match points against Serena at the AO and Serena fought back and won by a narrow margin. This same Shara plays Venus who hasn't played in over 6 months and Venus dusted the girl into the ground.

How the outcome of a match ends has nothing to do with the previous match. I've seen them play poor matches one day and play a perfect match the next game.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:05 AM
kirilenko is not a good player and she has never beaten venus.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:07 AM
Venus in 2 sets

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:11 AM
Vee in 2, too much game for Masha K.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:14 AM
My heart says Venus in straight sets. Good luck Vee!

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:18 AM
Venus in two sets and lucky me I get to see it in person !!

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:19 AM
Venus in two sets and lucky me I get to see it in person !!

Have fun :)

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:22 AM
Kirilenko doesn't have the sort of game to hurt Venus, I don't think a inform Maria with low unforced error could beat Venus, which Kirilenko isn't very consistent at the moment. Venus in two sets

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:24 AM
I think the score'll be something like.....

6-2 6-1

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:27 AM
vee in straights maria hasnt been playin great recently

Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:14 AM
Venus seems determined to win this year so she will take down Kirilenko in straight sets. :)

Then she will bully Sharapova like how Serena did in Australia this year.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:15 AM
venus in 2!

Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:35 AM
Makiri I believe in you!! though it think Venus will win 6-3 6-2

Mar 23rd, 2007, 04:49 AM
Venus will come out swinging like a heavy hitter . She will be in even better form after this match.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 04:53 AM
Venus 6-4, 6-2

Mar 23rd, 2007, 04:54 AM
Venus in two sets and lucky me I get to see it in person !!

I Hate you. Lol

Enjoy yourself!

Mar 23rd, 2007, 04:54 AM
Maria is gonna get killed. :lol:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 05:04 AM
I don't think Maria K. has the game that would trouble Vee. plus she's been struggling alot lately, which is never good when you go up against a great player. Vee in 2 6/3 6/2 She'll come out ready to play from the start after her rough start tonight hopefully :)

Shimizu Amon
Mar 23rd, 2007, 05:52 AM
Go Maria!

I hope Maria stands a fighting chance, but I think Venus will tear her a part in 2.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 06:27 AM
Venus shouldn't have too much trouble against Kirilenko. Only way Kirilenko wins is if Venus is spraying errors all over the place which isn't beyond Venus as we all know.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 07:07 AM
I hope VW in 2 :)

Mar 23rd, 2007, 07:10 AM
vee in 2 easy sets

Mar 23rd, 2007, 08:13 AM
vee.. 6-1 6-0

Mar 23rd, 2007, 09:27 AM
Venus in 3

Mar 23rd, 2007, 09:27 AM
I wish someone would put up the danged bets...

Mar 23rd, 2007, 09:29 AM
Kirilenko in three

Mar 23rd, 2007, 10:13 AM
Maria hasnt done anything noteworthy in a long time, so I think Venus will come through with relative ease.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 10:57 AM
vee shld take it

Mar 23rd, 2007, 11:52 AM
i hope Maria ,but i think Venus !

Mar 23rd, 2007, 12:29 PM
Look at all of the arrogance from the Williams fans. :rolleyes:

Maria K in three sets is my vote. :D

Venus might lay down to avoid Sharapova. :lol:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 12:36 PM
C'mon Masha :bounce:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 12:38 PM
Venus in easy two like 62 63 :shrug:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 12:41 PM
Venus 7-5 6-0. :yeah:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 12:48 PM
Venus in two - 6:2 6:3

Mar 23rd, 2007, 01:11 PM
Makiri I hope...

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:16 PM
I Hope Kirilenko does her best to win because I have a feeling Venus can win in straight sets, just hope its not a bad scoreline for Maria K.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:16 PM
Venus 61 75

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:17 PM
Say Venus 6-3,6-1 with some tough games....

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:17 PM
This really is a match Vee should definitely win - and in straight sets too.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:17 PM
Go Venus in 61 64

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:37 PM
Kirilenko does not have a real weapon. She is consistent though and doesnīt make many UFE. If Venus plays calm and steadily aggressive she will take it in straights.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:39 PM
Maria, please win some games :awww:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:49 PM
venus in 2, i say maria does'nt have the fire power to worry venus/ keep her defensive! maria would have to play the match of the tourney to beat vee on her home turf so early

Mar 23rd, 2007, 02:50 PM
Venus in 2.

I SO hope I am wrong.

Go Maria K:hearts: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:09 PM
i wont vote here ...i hope Maria but i think Williams.


Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:16 PM
Come on Maria...i'm hoping you will win but i can't believe it

Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:45 PM
Venus in 3 sets

Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:56 PM
YAY! Gooo Vee!

I dont care how the girl wins, as long as it comes out as a W!

Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:57 PM
How can people think so lowly of a 29 seed? Where has the WTA gone???

Mar 23rd, 2007, 03:57 PM
I think Maria may win... I really hope she does. But I'm not sure with Kirilenko's inconsistency. :lol:

suffer well
Mar 23rd, 2007, 04:42 PM
Me wants lil'M to win....

Mar 23rd, 2007, 04:46 PM
makiri in 2

Mar 23rd, 2007, 04:51 PM
Maria hasnt done anything noteworthy in a long time, so I think Venus will come through with relative ease.

She beat Peer last month. Sharhar has been the only big player that Venus has beaten so far this year, and if Kirilenko can beat her too, whose to say she can't beat Venus?

Hope Maria wins this :)

Mar 23rd, 2007, 05:18 PM
Venus in two sets and lucky me I get to see it in person


Mar 23rd, 2007, 05:23 PM
Look at all of the arrogance from the Williams fans. :rolleyes:

Maria K in three sets is my vote. :D

Venus might lay down to avoid Sharapova. :lol:

Thatīs not arrogance itīs stating facts. If Venus plays well she has nothing to fear from Kirilenko.

Venus has never been one to avoid any player. She wonīt be avoiding Sharapova. She has faced tougher players and won.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 05:45 PM
Venus will squish Maria :sigh:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 06:31 PM
Venus easily 6-1, 6-3

Mar 23rd, 2007, 06:31 PM
Makiri in 3 sets with a huge upset over Venus!;)

Mar 23rd, 2007, 07:43 PM
Venus in two sets.

Mar 23rd, 2007, 08:06 PM
Venus in 2. Kirilenko struggles against the biggest hitters and she's hardly in the form of her career

Mar 23rd, 2007, 09:12 PM
I honestly think this will be an easy win for Vee. :shrug:

But I wouldn't dare get ahead of myself, I'll just wait for tomorrow when I can WATCH it! :bounce:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 11:02 PM
Venus def Kirilenko 6/3 6/2:)

Go Vee win!!!!!!!

Mar 23rd, 2007, 11:10 PM
maria in 3.. 3rd set tie-breaker :drool:

Mar 23rd, 2007, 11:23 PM
Venus in 2

Mar 23rd, 2007, 11:46 PM
Unless Maria gets a coach,She will never have any successnot only to top players nor any one else. Maria is in a very bad form it is cerrtain that Venüs going to win in straight sets.
And I hope Maria gets a coach as soon as possible

Mar 24th, 2007, 12:00 AM
Viva Maria! :rocker2: :drool:

Mar 24th, 2007, 12:08 AM
Venus in two long sets.. i think a really tough first set going 7-6 and then an up and down 2nd set something like 6-4
