Go Momo! And please dont look if Dementieva bends down..its just another one of her on-court crafts.

Such a contrasting opponent for her as compared to her previous round. She did well agaisnt the huge-serving ALG and now she will need to adjust to the thing Dementieva calls a serve.

I guess Dementieva's the favourite with the way she's played this year but Mauresmo's capable of playing much better than she has been recently. If the serve holds up, she has a good chance of getting the upset, especially on this surface - she should be able to get into the net quite a bit.
Either way, I hope the winner goes on to take the title, but Allez Amelie!!!:worship:

In the past Mauresmo would have been a sure bet against Elena in indoor but these days...
A win would be good for Amelie's confidence so I hope she'll be able to raise her game enough to take it tomorrow.

Hmmm i'm worried about this one. If we look at this year elena should obviously win...

BUT she's been pretty disappointing this fall season and i have a feeling amelie wants a good win BAD.
The only thing i'm hoping for is that elena's fitness and improved serve will win it for her in the end.

Prediction:
Elena in a tough, long, 3-set match.

Amelie in 3- hopefully with good quality from both girls.

After watching both players today : I'd say Elena in 2

Amélie's shots are surprizingly slow
All she does is retrieving, hitting moonballs off the FH and slices off the BH

It's Dementieva so anything could happen but she should win this match with ease.

I like both, but Mauresmo needs a win more for her confidence, so I'll vote for her.

I don't vote in these threads (it's a jinx thing for me ;)) so I'll just hope for a good match :)

Elena would have to do a lot of things wrong to lose this match.

As frenchie said, Mauresmo has been reduced to a retriever these days. She uses her backhand slice in defensive situations only and moonballs her forehand as always. I don't expect this one to be very close.

Amelie hasn't beaten a top 10 player since 2007 Antwerp F. I think this pattern will continue.

what a shame: my two favourite player meet in the QF of a tier III

Amelie needs the win to built up her confidence
Lena needs some points to become no 4 again


I favour Amelie, just a little

Dementieva has won the poll against Jankovic in their previous two matches by considerable margins, and is losing this one to someone far past her prime and has actually beaten numerous times, unlike Jankovic.

The board's dynamics are fascinating, really. Of course I think Amelie can win, and I don't care who does win, but you'd think Elena would win the poll.
