I would say it will be tight after watching today but i think nicole's serve is too good so i say her in 3...

Jan 7th, 2008, 09:08 AM
I hope Daniela will take her second win against Nicole.
So I say Daniela in 3.

Jan 7th, 2008, 09:43 AM
With the current form and consistent serve, Nicole must be the winner.

Daniela is way too weak to defeat Nicole.

Daniela is way too weak to defeat Nicole.

Current form? She lost set to Pin :tape: Dani is higher ranked, better player and she'll be a winner...

Don't like Hantuchova, don't particulary like Vaidisova.

Nicole 7-5, 6-4.

Jan 7th, 2008, 10:54 AM
I hope Dani in 3

Don't like Hantuchova, don't particulary like Vaidisova.

Nicole 7-5, 6-4.

understatement?! :spit:

Jan 7th, 2008, 11:33 AM
Nicole lost a set 6-2 to Camille Pin for no good reason.
Not to be mean, but if she lost 1 set to Pin, she'll probably lose 2 sets to a top ten player like Hantu.

Hantu in 3.

Jan 7th, 2008, 11:43 AM
Nicole. In 2, though wouldnt be surprised by a 3 setter.

So Disrespectful

Daniela hit a 180km serve today :drool:

This match is a tossup. :o

Neither player has really hit form yet, but still showed glimpses of good tennis in their wins.

May the best one win. ;)

Jan 7th, 2008, 11:47 AM
Their last two matches have been close. Hantuchova is, I think at least, beginning to get used to Vaidisova's tough groundies and serve.

Like it's been said, toss up, but I think (hope/wish/pray :unsure: ) Hantuchova in three. Dani's got a lot of points to defend in the next two months, might as well start putting in a reserve now.

Jan 7th, 2008, 11:54 AM
Hantuchova won their last meeting because Nicole choked.If Nicole doesn't choke, she will win and vice versa.It's simple as that.

Jan 7th, 2008, 11:57 AM
Nicole won't lose in Sydney. she always wins :)

Jan 7th, 2008, 01:28 PM
Nicole will win! :)

Jan 7th, 2008, 01:46 PM
Hope Daniela in 3! :D

Jan 7th, 2008, 02:00 PM
Dani needs to play smart, be mentally tough and cover the court well. If she can do that she will force errors from Vaidisova's racket. Of course over the years these have not been the strong points of Dani's game. But over the last 18 months she has gotten smarter, mentally stronger, and is moving better than she ever has...so she has a real chance. Dani in 3.

Jan 7th, 2008, 04:53 PM
nikki wins this in 3....but i won't be surprised if dani wins this though... ;)

Jan 7th, 2008, 05:02 PM
Dani in 3:worship:

Jan 7th, 2008, 05:04 PM
Dani 6-1, 6-3 :P

Jan 7th, 2008, 05:05 PM
I am so glad Hantuchova beat Safina, and I think she can beat Vaidisova;)

However, I voted for Nicole because I voted for Dinara in the 1st Round and I don't wanna jinx Dani by voting for her.

Jan 7th, 2008, 11:30 PM

Jan 8th, 2008, 12:19 AM
Go Daniela!! 3 tough sets!

Daniel K
Jan 8th, 2008, 12:21 AM
I hope and think Daniela will take it in 3.

Jan 8th, 2008, 12:46 AM
Devilsova to win in 2 sets

Sexy already won to Robredo :bounce:

Jan 8th, 2008, 01:16 AM
Nicole in 3. This match has the potential to be ridiculously fun.

Jan 8th, 2008, 01:19 AM
Normally I would have said Nicole pretty easily, but she just doesn't seem like she is on form at all at the moment. I mean nearly losing to Dellacqua, getting beaten rather easily by Li, and then losing a set to Pin. Nicole might edge out a tough victory, but I dont see her winning it easily to be honest :sad:

Jan 8th, 2008, 01:20 AM
Daniela hit a 180km serve today :drool:

Wtf when? In her dreams?

Hantuchova in 3: 5-7 6-3 7-5
