The match I was looking forward to since the draw was released. Dinara is going for number 1 while Victoria is trying to win a major title. I say Vika continue on that path in 3 sets.

Vika is a (very) poor man's Sharapova.
Dinara knows how to play Sharapova.
Dinara is destined to reach #1.

Dinara will win.

Vika is similar to Sharapova.
Dinara knows how to play Sharapova on clay
Dinara is destined to be the worst #1 of all time.

I hope to god Dinara will not win.

I just think it needed editing :)

Safina's been struggling with every average opponent.
Azarenka has a real shot.

Until proven otherwise Azarenka is another average opponent. The girl has never been to a GS QF or a Tier II final :shrug:

Dinara defeated Sharapova not only on clay.

Sure, but she has improved a lot since last season and I bet most Dinara fans are really nervous about this one...

Dinara defeated Sharapova not only on clay.

On indoor carpet in front of a home crowd. Last time I checked Indian Wells was played on outdoor hardcourts. Hhmmmm, lets check the head to head on outdoor American hardcourts shall we?.... :speakles:

I was just trying to point out that saying Safina "knows how to play Sharapova" is a tad moronic ;)

Dinara has a good record against Vika. 3-0
Won't be easy, but Vera in the SF will probably be tougher than Vika

You made a mistake, she'd be the 2nd worst technically, JJ is the worst:)

I'll be putting my money on Safina. Vika hasn't been convincing at all so far in this tournament, and the H2H is in Safina's favor as well.

Still a mistake............

She would be 3rd or 4th worst #1 since 2000!

She has a much more stellar resume compared to Momo & JJ when they first become #1.
Could be tied with Kim when she first become #1.
And if we will only count the #1 holders from year 2000 onwards with relevance to their accomplishment during the RP period, then she is #6 technically!

if we will ranked then on who is worst then:

1. JJ
2. Momo
3. Lindsay
4 - 6. Kim, Martina & Dinara

Kim Clijsters was the defending champion of the YEC championships and Indian Wells during a much tougher period of womens tennis when she reached #1. Please don't insult her by putting her tied with Dinara because its just utter bullshit

Safina played superb at times against Jill. Apart from Jill's Dfs, the match was prety good quality overall. She is going to be tough to beat for Vika as it looks like she is getting her form back.

If Dinara wins, she plays one match for world #1.
The better the results, the more expectations go up

Firstly, Azarenka and Sharapova are completely different players, nothing alike in any way whatsoever. So knowing how to play one means absolutely nothing against the other.

Vika has a bad record against Safina from last year, but now she is the one playing better tennis. This is the best shot she has ever had against Safina. It's one of those matches where if Vika doesn't beat her this time she might never do it. So, good luck Vika all the way! :bounce:

I don't understand the people touting Vika as a GIANT killer, when she has not scalps or big titles to back it up. Yeah yeah she won a set of Serena but she didn't close the deal.


FTR

I hope that Vika does emerge as a new threat to the top, the tour def needs those players on the cusp of stardom to rise up and fufill their potential.


Safina in 3

28 people got the correct winner and sets. Surprised that Dinara won only 4 games in the last 2 sets after rallying to win the first set in a tiebreaker
