Both players are in great form but I believe Julia at her best is better than Maria at her best. Julia in 3.

It's Julia's match to lose, but I think Maria will prevail.

I think it will be a tough match for both, because its a HUGE match for both of them to reach 4th round of a SLAM. I think Kirilenko is steadier and will come through in three sets, something like 36 64 62

I wanted to see Daniela vs. Masha :(
I think Julia will beat Masha!

I'm rooting for Masha to beat Vakulenko but Julia has a bigger game and Masha will be under alot of pressure to win this match and make it to the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time in her career. Vakulenko in 3 sets.

I think Maria is going to surprise a lot of people. She's one of the most talented athletes on the tour.

Maria in 2. A tight first set and an easier second. Something along the lines of 7-5, 6-2!
Break the 3R barrier Maria :kiss:

I wouldn't be surprised in the least. She has the potential to make the Quarters with her draw. She troubled Kuznetsova in Doha last year and if she could do so again I could see her possibly reaching the Semis.
I don't wanna think too far ahead though...

Great opportunity for both players. I think Kirilenko will be the one to seize the moment and win in two sets.

Tough match. Both players seem to be playing their best tennis. Movement is the only advantage Maria has over Julia. So beating Vakulenko would be very hard.

I don't want to think that far hard ahead and jinx Kirilenko either, but I completely agree with your assessment.

I think Masha will win this one, but I don't know much about Julia so take my vote with a grain of salt.

I would say Kirilenko purely on her consistency this summer.

Makiri in THREE TOUGH SETS ending the match with a nailbiting tiebreaker in the 3rd set!!! UNLEASH HELL on Vakulenko Makiri!!!

as has been said it probably depends on Vakulenko's level. got a funny feeling Kirilenko will get the win.

Vakulenko has done very little this year. A win or Clijsters and then one against an out of form hantuckova is nothing special.

Makiri hasn't lost to a lower ranked player since Wimbledon and has to be the favouite here.

I think Sister Christian has more raw talent than Kirilenkova, but is kind of a headcase. (Which is how she wound up with that guru type guy Scotty last year). So it depends "which Julia shows up". :scratch:

Vakulenko has done very little this year. A win or Clijsters and then one against an out of form hantuckova is nothing special.

During 2 weeks she managed to beat 2 Top5 players and 1 Top10 player. All were in good form. :rolleyes:
After that she got injured :sad:

I trust in Julia! She'll win it in three!

I hope Maria will win but I think Julia will win in 3.

Julia seems to know when she has to play some good tennis because she didn't have good results in the US Open Series prior to this 3R. IMO, it's on Julia's racquet but I hope to see Maria win.
