Who will win? Dulko who won Forest Hills yesterday or Bondarenko who is seeded? What do you think?

Aug 26th, 2007, 06:37 PM
I'm thinking Gisela.

She has just won Forest Hills, and Alona isnt really on form at the moment.

Aug 26th, 2007, 06:40 PM
In her recent match against Sania, she got bagelled in the second set. If Sania could have converted the break point she had she would have won it. So Alona is not in a better form and Gisela no doubt demolished Virginie. Gisela will Win!!

I think Dulko will win it.

I watched Forest Hills' final and I must say Gisela played a fantastic tennis. Also I watched her in Charleston when she played against Ivanovic and if she plays like she played last week, she will win in straight and easy sets.

I say gise 6-4 6-4:bounce:

Gisela Dulko (ARG) d. (21) Alona Bondarenko (UKR) 7-5 6-2 :yeah:

Dulko in two sets.

This match can go either way.
I think Gisela had a good week in which she found out that what works best for her on this surface against players with flatter groundstrokes.

She just demonlished Razzano with her clay court gamestyle on hard courts.
She needs time to set it up though.

I just don't feel that Alona is going to give her that much time especially after losing to Agnes whose groundstrokes especially on the forehand aren't that compact (meaning that if she took time away from her by hitting a little early she probably could have had Agnes spraying some balls on that side).

Alona in three.

Battle of "The Babes" :hearts:

I would expect the Ukrainian beauty to eventually overpower the sultry Argentinian in three, possibly messy, sets.

Aug 26th, 2007, 10:44 PM
Alona in 3!

cmon gise kick some ass:bounce:

I hope Dulko wins. She needs to go a run rather than just play 1 good tournament every few months.

Aug 27th, 2007, 02:44 AM
Gisela in three sets.
Alona isn't in great form, and Gisela should be confident after her win in Forest Hills.

Aug 27th, 2007, 02:45 AM
alona :rocker2:

Aug 27th, 2007, 02:46 AM
Gisela in two close sets.

Aug 27th, 2007, 02:52 AM
I think it will depend on how well Alona plays :shrug:

Aug 27th, 2007, 04:11 AM
Gisela in 3 sets.:)

Aug 27th, 2007, 04:14 AM
Gisela to continue her good form by upsetting Alona in straights.

I'm excited possibly for another Gisela/Eleni! :hearts:

Come on Gise! :dance:

Alona wins. Gisela scrapped her way to a win in Forest Hills. Alona will be able to overpower and will not let her dictate play. Alona in 3.
