After last weeks performance, blowing out early here wouldnt suprise me nor bother me in the least, I reckon Lenas head will be elsewhere and Fran is a tricky customer indeed, not the ideal first round oppo to face.

That said, Lena seems to have her mood set for revenge and has really decimated some of the players who last beat her, players like Pasek, Schnyder and of course Dinara have all been despatched with clinical ruthlessness, plus theres now Lenas 124mph serve to worry about, should it make an apperance here.

I really dont know or care, Lena SHOULD win but I wouldnt be suprsied if Fran caused the upset again either.

I just want Elena to win this match, then I don't really care what she does in Zurich after that, unless she faces Patty again, then she MUST beat her, and if it's Kuzzie in the QF then she has to beat her too....and I'm tired of everyone saying Ivanovic would destroy her so she must beat her in the SF....oh what the hell, Zurich is practically inconsequential after last week. Although I would definitely like if Elena could re-affirm her spot in the top 10 with a few more points so she ends the year top 10.

elena has always had difficulties with fran. zurich plays fast, so hopefully that will work in elena's favor.

I hope Elena wont lose to Fran 3rd time in the row...Now when Serena is out, she simply must reach qf...

Kuznetsova is trash indoors (no offense to her or her fans, but her record indoors is not good at all). This is an amazing chance for a TI SF....again.

Then Krajicek/Golovin/Bartoli/Ivanovic in the SF, which would be tough, but not impossible. Elena's so good at crashing her fan's hopes though.

I'm still elenalated about Moscow, but. I'm thinking about Zurich now. :lol:

I don't know...she sorta tanked here last year, I guess she'll win. Either way, it's on her shoulders.

Don't forget about Bartoli. ;) I don't think losing at Zurich will matter that much to Elena, but of course she wants to win. Who wants to lose? The fact of the matter is simple, if Elena plays the way she's been playing then she'll win. If she continues hitting a lot of forehands and backhands down-the-line with a pretty good serve, I don't see how Fran can win. But who knows.
