Sadly no, but I hope Aga plays her best.

I think the bigger chances had Razzano, but she is out.

I don't think Radwanska will get just one game like Vinci or Dell'Acqua, I rather tend to a result like 6-2,6-4 for Sharapova. I think she has better chances on faster courts against hard hitting players like Vinci (Dell'Acqua normally doesn't have any chance against top-players).

As much as I'd like Aga to win I suspect Sharapova will win in two, although I am hopeful, even semi-confident that it will be quite competitive, and Aga should win six or more games.

Sharapova in two. i hope it going to be an interesting match.

Shepster
Aug 31st, 2007, 11:41 AM
Aside from Hingis, Clijsters and Venus, the only people she's lost to in the last three years ranked outside the top 30 are Rezai on clay, Jackson on grass and retiring to Kirilenko on hard. She's beaten 103 people ranked outside the top 30 in that time period. She's won her opening two matches dropping 2 games hitting 30 winners a match with not even half as many UEs. Frankly, no, but it would be amusing if she did. It would need Sharapova playing terribly and Radwanska playing her best for there to be a chance but I don't see either of those things happening.

Sharapova in two, forecast 5-7 games for Aga.

Mikey B
Aug 31st, 2007, 11:42 AM
should be a good match... could be competitive... i hope they both play well, but even if radwanska plays her best i still maria will win, so maria in two..

I predict also a 6-2 6-2..at their only meeting this year at istambul, maria won 6-2 3-6 6-0, and it was on clay, with maria having her shoulder issues, second match maria played on her comeback..

Maria in 2 easy sets probably, I haven't seen Aga play for a while but if she hadn't start to hit harder then there is no hope for her :(

I think Radwanska will beat Maria. Maria falls apart under pressure. I picked Radwanska over Razzano to beat Maria in the 3rd round and I got my wish.

Fire_Fox

Omg, how people can vote for Radwanska????? :lol:
No chances!
Sharapova win 6/0 6/2

Radwanska is aggressive and consistent. I think Radwanska will send Maria packing.

You guys are overestimating Maria. Her first two opponents rolled right over. Radwanska is gonna take it to Maria and that will break Maria's spirit.

You just wait and see.... Radwanska will either beat Maria, or... if not, tire her out for the 4th round. I hope it's a beat though.

@Sweet Cleopatra
Aug 31st, 2007, 03:25 PM
you made fear of Radwaneska

JeremySun

Radwanska is one player that doesn't get scared by Maria. She even beat Venus last year and beat Martina this year. Like I said, she's aggressive.

There is no need overhyping Maria. She succumbs easily to the first player that doesn't roll over for her. Radwanska is gonna send her a-packing.

Maria's playing too well if you ask me. Her level will need to drop for Aga to have a legitimate shot.

Wake up! Maria is #2 in the world & I don`t see somebody who can beat her before final! Only if Kuznetsova will play unbelievable tennis!

Finals is always unpredictable so I don`t give 100% of Maria`s winning! But still think she win it!!!

maria trashed serena @ wimbledon
maria beat venus two times (indoor, hardcourt) 6-3 6-4 BTW thats just three games less than maria got @ wimbledon this year.
so whats your point? maria can kick williams ass aswell.

trufanjay
Aug 31st, 2007, 04:23 PM
Maria has such an easy draw and when she knocks off these chumps everyone gets all excited thinking she will wipe everyone out.
She will most likely win this match though. I think Vaidisova can get the job done, but she will probably make too many errors. Sharapova is not ready to loose, YET.

ZeroSOFInfinity
Aug 31st, 2007, 04:24 PM
I got a feeling Aga will give Maria one hell of a ride... an upset might be coming her way...

Even if Maria wins, it would be a hard-fought 3 setter.

And if she does pass this challenge.... Final, here she come!

starin

No Upset. Sharapova is too consistent from the baseline and will pin Radwanska back. Radwanska's not going to overpower Sharapova and that's mostly how she's been losing matches.

Just Do It

Maria's serve looks a little shakey. If this kid can move Maria around she has a legit shot.

I hope Masha's loses because her draw is stacked for her to make final. GO RADWANSKA TROUNCE HER OVERRATED GAME!

Freewoman33
Aug 31st, 2007, 05:32 PM
I was looking at this kid's head-to-head. She's not a bad player. If Maria plays well, it could be a 2&4 or 2&2 victory for her. However, if she struggles with her serve like she did last night, she could be in for a more challenging match from her opponent. This kid doesn't seem like the type to roll over and die. I think Maria will win, but it may not be an easy win for her.

selyoink
Aug 31st, 2007, 07:34 PM
Sharapova will annihilate her in two sets.

Next year I would put my money on Aga. But in this moment of their careers I predict
hard 3-sets fight with Masha as winner Nevertheless it can prove for Sharapova so called Pyrrhus win

No not really, it will the first test for Masha, but she will come true I'm sure of it.
It's a good test for her 4th round match against Vaidisova.

:bounce: GO MASHA!:bounce:

Bruno71
Sep 1st, 2007, 05:57 AM
No chance. This year's draw, like last year's, has been optimized for Maria's performance through to the end of the 2nd week. Any hopes one may have of an upset are very unlikely to occur before the final.
