Well, we have the surprise of the tournament in Pavlyuchenkova who defeated Jankovic in the 2nd round and A Radwanska who needed a good result to stay in the Top 10. I will say Aggie will end the good run of Nastya in 3 sets

The interesting thing though is that they know eachother well.(just like caroline and ula) The radwanska's and her are friends. She's played them on the junior tour. So this might be good for nastya, she knows what to expect. And she's further down the line then ula right now, she could pull the upset.

Your "Cinderella" is too big and muscular to be true
Little Aga knows what to do with this type of players

She´s 17, she has a cute face but she still has a little of the babyfat. I remember someone else who came on tour and had a little too much babyfat as well, a few years later she turned into an amazing beauty and won a grandslam. ;)

Well, if she improved dramatically as some people claim (I simply haven't seen her playing after Wimbledon where she was impressive but eventually lost to Agnieszka), then I don't see any reason why she couldn't. Agnieszka's current level is after several consecutive periods of sickness something not entirely clear. This combined with Anastasia's newly gained confidence may result in her winning when they meet this time. This is promissing to be one of the more interesting Quarterfinal matches.

Nastya, muscular? :unsure: Really? :unsure:

I hope Nastya can get the win, I said in 3 sets for the poll, though I'd love it if she could win it in two.

Nastya was playing really great against JJ. This will be a tough match for Agnieszka.
I hope she will win in three, but I worry this could go to Nastya.

I really wish all the best to Nastya,she is my favourite player and I am absolutely excited about her great road in Indian Wells..But I don't think that she would past Radwanska. She is a good quality player but Radwanska has experience. I guess Radwanska in three.

Agreed. Wish Nastya won, but Aga owns Nastya leading 4-1 in H2H (including Juniors). They haven't played on hard before, so maybe Nastya can surprise?

I voted for Agnieszka, who else I would vote for?? ;)... I am not confident in Agnieszka's for just yet; I believe her being still a bit erratic. I still wish her all the best and hope for the best.

I wasn't aware of such a deficit in the H2h for Anastasia, but you have to think she has a decent shot here. She's striking the ball well and the confidence must be elevated after beating Jankovic, no matter how skaky the Serb was.

Aga is a bad match up for her though. She can expose the movement issues of Anastasia, and will keep forcing the Russian to create her own pace, which will undoubtedly draw and force errors. That said though, if Pavlyuchenkova can unleash on her shots consistently, she could hit Aga off the court. It's a big ask thoug, to do it well for a long period against the Pole.

Aga in 3, Anastasia will go down scrapping,

Great analysis; I like it :hatoff:. It doesn't take into considerations, though, that Anastasia seems to be in form while I don't think Agnieszka is out of her slump. I guess Anastasia has that going for her as well.

Interesting match. High on confidence underdog .vs. low on confidence top 10 player. Pressure could be the key factor in this match.

I hope Pavly wins, but I think Aga will come through in 3 sets. 3-6, 6-4, 6-2

Aga is an uber joke anyway. Nastya is the real deal and has a big future ahead of her. So even if she loses this she had an amazing run. I think Nastya in 3.

Aga should win this, and while I want her to find form, I would also quite like a new ''dangerous floater'' to emerge and make Miami all the more exciting :p

Radwanska and Ivanovic are so f***ing lucky on this tournament. Thay just can't ask for more, specially Ana who has a great chance to defend her title and enter the HALL OF FAME.

Still, predictions with Agnieszka as a winner were quite reasonable. Agnieszka played sooo bad, and she lost in two close sets. I am obviously disappointed. Not by the result. By her game. So uncharacteristic.

Aga had so many things to go with in that match, Nastya had so many areas she could exploit - as if we needed any more proof Aga is in a slump. She is built for players like Nastya!

Honestly, I needed the proof. Today I got it. Satisfied with the proof. Not satisfied with the situation.
