obviously if Chak plays well it should be routine. But it's hard to remember the last time she played well for an entire match. I think Dokic can take it having got through R1

i have to go with anna in 3 sets, i was impressed with dokic today although she had patches were she couldn't get a ball in play, also chak wont mind the crowd against her she likes that.

If both play like they did today, it'll be Dokic, like 6-2 6-3.

I really dont know what to expect from this match. If Jelena cuts down her errors i think She could win it in 2, otherwise Anna in 3.

I think Jelena will come out and swing freely now that she's won a round and the monkey is off her back. It'd be great if she could pull off another win. Jelena in 3 sets!

Jelena is not that consistent, will hit some errors suddenely, and after watching AnnaC today, she improved a lot comparing with last year!! So i go with Anna in 3!!

Well Dokic was at least hitting a lot of winners to go with the errors.
It will be difficult for Chak.

The tons of errors will probably be painful to watch :tape:
I hope Jelena takes it, it's a great chance for her to really give her ranking a boost.

I like both of them and both of them need this match.

But just because Dokic needs the points more I will go for her.

Hopefully she plays better with out the pressure.

NIGHT MATCH FOR SURE!!

this should be a good marquee night match between two former GS semifinalists, esp. now that dellacqua is gone.

If Jelena could keep her head, which is a huge if, she has a shot. It's not like her game is undermatched compared to Anna's:lol:

Anna is playing like a chump, but she still has greater Slam experience than Jelena recently and if it gets into 3 sets, i feel Anna could nick this match. It's all very much in the balance.

Dont hold out for great quality in this match. Think tons of breaks, DF's, UE's galore and the odd on-court hysteria from Chakky :haha:

jelena has got the more aggresive game, and will hit a lot of winners and unforced errors, and chak will prob just hit a huge amount of errors and little winners. i think jelena still has great potential, and a win like this could really confirm her comeback, and push her up the ranks. i say dokic in 3

If a match is at a ridiculous high-quality, you can sometimes miss out on the drama of a match.

Dokic in three because she is rising while Anna is slumping badly

Devasted. Jelly dispatched of Tamira in R1 (2 of my faves) and now she takes on another of my faves in R2 :sobbing:

3 setter no matter who wins.

WhatTheDeuce
Jan 19th, 2009, 05:18 PM
I picked Paszek to beat Dokic in R1, and I liked the result. So I'll pick Chakvetadze to win this.

Truthfully, Dokic has a good chance if she can keep her head screwed on.

Jan 19th, 2009, 05:36 PM
Dokic has to serve well. on the other hand AnnaC is capable of better overall game.

~Eclipsed~
Jan 19th, 2009, 05:41 PM
Hmm, if Dokic serves as well as she did against Paszek she has a good shot. If she really does have "nothing to lose" attitude, I can't see her getting nervous against Chak. :unsure: Having said that, i'm not sure who will win.


Three sets.

Really it could go 51/49 either way. Chakvetadze with her experience on the tour may be able to hold her nerves a little better and did shock some speculators during her 2007 U.S open run. Dokic, however, has the crowd on her side and this could be a "Cinderella" for her comeback. Saying that, its a large possibility that this is a three setter- no doubt. If Dokic wins and makes the 3rd round- this would be a nice little start up for a comeback into the top 100 maybe even further. I expect top 60 by the end of year if she's not injured. As for Chakvetadze, if she wins she might go far- who knows- anyone can lose.

Jan 20th, 2009, 02:25 AM
I voted Dokic, but I can't see her getting past Anna. She will still be nervous, and will rush too much.
Her game itself is better than Anna's, but she's so frail mentally. 1 point could cause a meltdown.
Chakvetadze 6-4 6-2.


PROVE ME WRONG, JELENA!

Anna will win it.

TeamCaro
Jan 20th, 2009, 03:44 AM
Jelena has a chance of winning, it's just whether she sorts out her head before and during the match.
I think she has the ability of a top30 player but the mental side is still a bit iffy.

Reiken
Jan 20th, 2009, 05:23 AM
It's all about Anna. She keeps her emotions check, cuts down on the ue's, and stays away from being a ball basher she'll definitely win.

Jelena def Anna 75 63

Hoping that (for once) Jelena will play someone who melts down themselves and this will help her own concentration when she's trying to close sets. Kill her Jelena!!

Jelena can win this match!
She was playing beautifully at 6-2 2-2 against Paszek, then the errors crept in. Now that she got through that match, she will be hugely relieved and she has absolutely nothing to lose against a slumping player with expectations who hit 53 errors and just 19 winners in her first round match!

The crowd will also really get behind Jelena, especially given her recent emotional press conference where she finally opened up a bit about her past. However, it depends on where both their heads are as both players can be a bit hot and cold.

Dominic

Mmh it'S actually all about Jelena. As are almost all of her matches. When she is serving well and is mentally stable she can beat anyone.
