Kirilenko is on a roll on the red stuff and Jelena said herself she is still trying to find her rythem on it. I still have to stay with Jelena in 2 sets. I think she'll kick it into full gear for tomorrow.

Yep in San Diego

Her new coach, Eric Van Harpen, had promised her a Labrador retriever if she won the match.

"I was thinking, 'Match point, and the dog is mine,'" she said.

Jelena should win in 2- 7-5,6-4 but something is telling me to go for maria

If Kirilenko somehow wins this match, Elena has a great chance to make the semifinals of her first Tier I clay event, thus leading her to a much better chance of getting the eighth seed in Paris.

Kirilenko has to like her chances. Their previous two matches went 75 in the third at one a piece, and Kirilenko was up a break in the third in the one Jankovic won. The only main difference is this is Maria's worst surface by far, and JJ is so tough to hit winners against.

This should be a good match at least. The winner takes it in a third set tiebreak. Go Maria.

Jelena in 2!!!

I think Jelena should pull out a win here. If she comes out firing from the beginning it should be in 2, but if not I think it might be a 3 setter.

Maria in 3 :angel: She's been working with her coach to make clay her face surface and she seems to be playing pretty well on it. While Jankovic has only had the one match on clay.

Jelena should win but.. Maria for the upset :hearts:

Jankovic in straights.

Jelena should win this...and comfortably. 7-5 6-2 if Jelena gets off to another slow start, but if Jelena gets out of the gates quickly Masha will do well to win more than 4 games.
