Sveta in 3

Jan 9th, 2008, 02:12 PM

Jan 9th, 2008, 02:12 PM
Good luck Nicole! :D

Jan 9th, 2008, 02:17 PM
Semisova strikes again :devil:

Kuznetsova 6-3 7-6

Jan 9th, 2008, 02:19 PM
I hope Nicole.

Jan 9th, 2008, 02:20 PM
Sveta in three sets i think.Vaidisova has difficulties with reaching any big finals and with Sveta too

Jan 9th, 2008, 02:21 PM
Go Sveta :hearts:.

Jan 9th, 2008, 02:38 PM
Sveta just about in 3 sets

Jan 9th, 2008, 03:00 PM
If Sveta plays smart and runs her side to side, it will be in 2.

Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia salutes the crowd after beating Francesca Schiavone of Italy at the Sydney International Tennis Tournament 09 January 2008. Kuznetsova won the match in straight sets 6-4,6-0

Jan 9th, 2008, 03:05 PM
Kuznetsova looks fitter to me in that picture.

Kuznetsova 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.

the doctor
Jan 9th, 2008, 03:47 PM
Svetlana in 2

Jan 9th, 2008, 03:58 PM
Sveta looks much trimmer now than she did last year :yeah:

I like both girls so I don't mind who wins :)

Jan 9th, 2008, 04:31 PM
Svetlana looked really strong in her first 2 matches, so I give her the first and the half chance to win against Nicole. H2H 3-0 to Russian.

Jan 9th, 2008, 04:43 PM
Sveta to win and consolidate her well deserved number 2 spot

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:01 PM
nicol please reach your first tier 2 final

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:03 PM
:devil: hopefully

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:04 PM
Vaidisova in three sets.

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:08 PM
vaidisova in 3

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:13 PM
Nicole in 3, with a little choke after a chance to close it out in 2. :o

I hope if she wins this than she can push Henin like she did in Zurich (if Henin gets to the final).

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:14 PM
I say nikki in 2 sets!!

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:24 PM
Niki in 2

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:28 PM
Sveta easy :D

Jan 9th, 2008, 05:41 PM
i think sveta will win...i don't mind if nikki wins though...i like both players... :yeah:

Jan 9th, 2008, 06:22 PM
Sveta in 2 I think

Jan 9th, 2008, 06:24 PM
Kuzzie in 3!!!

Jan 9th, 2008, 06:26 PM
Nicole should have won every match against Sveta. Instead, she has lost every match from a winning position. She was very very impressive against Jankovic today, especially in her mental game. I'd like for Nicole to win and ascend to no. 11 in the world, but...I just don't see it happening. Sveta in 3.

Jan 9th, 2008, 06:29 PM
Nicole wins, FINALLY. 7-5, 6-2

Jan 9th, 2008, 06:50 PM
Kuzy :kiss:

I like Nicole in 3 sets.

Jan 9th, 2008, 07:45 PM
Nicole in 3 sets

Jan 9th, 2008, 07:57 PM
Sveta has been playing very well to start 2008. I can't imagine that this match will go three, especially with Nicole playing that tough one last night. It's not so bad if Nicole loses, she needs to rest for AO.

Jan 9th, 2008, 08:15 PM
i bet on Nicole

Jan 9th, 2008, 10:36 PM
Vaidisova 6-1, 6-2

Jan 9th, 2008, 11:10 PM
hope Sveta in three :D

Jan 9th, 2008, 11:19 PM
Kuznetsova looks fitter to me in that picture.

Kuznetsova 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.

You're right, she does and that's always a good sign of success for Kuznetsova. Although, I think regardless of who wins it, it will be a close match. I like seeing the aggressive Kuznetsova who can whip the crap out of a ball, but sometimes she can play so defensively, which always urks me. However, I think the new spin that Vaidisova is putting on her groundstrokes will be a huge factor. We'll see. :)

Jan 9th, 2008, 11:52 PM
wow Sveta leading in the poll... that's someting new for this board :lol:

Jan 10th, 2008, 12:35 AM
sveta, probably 2 sets. she's played really well so far this year and seems to have been ignored so far. although i want justine to win i have a sneaky feeling that this is sveta's tourny whoever she meets in the final. also think the new surface suits her and she will have a good run at AO -semis/final.

Jan 10th, 2008, 12:39 AM
Svetlana Kuznetsova in 3 :) Go Svetik!

Sveta is the most underrated player on the tour. She will win this in straight sets! She will win many titles this year!! She will beat Henin this year also!

Jan 10th, 2008, 03:09 AM
Nicole in 3! :D

Jan 10th, 2008, 03:47 AM
goooo Vaidisova!!!!

Jan 10th, 2008, 03:49 AM

Jan 10th, 2008, 04:08 AM
Intriguing, intriguing - I'm looking forward to watching this in what ... 4 hours?

Vaidisova was good yesterday.
Huge serving, big shots, nice touch and good movement. I haven't seen Kuzy yet, by all accounts she is looking fit and in the zone. Should be a good match.

Kuznetsova in three sets.

Jan 10th, 2008, 04:18 AM
It's sad because I think Sveta will definitely win.. she should since she IS the much better and more accomplished player.

However, I'm rooting for Nicole b/c I give Kuznetsova 0% chance of winning against Henin.
