Who wins this match? I say Ana in 2 ending the Cinderella ride of Nastya.

Ana advanced to the semifinals due to Sybille Bammer withdrawing with a shoulder injury.

Bammer withdrew.

I think Nastya is very talented but it will be too much for her.

This should get interesting.
I think ana will win in three sets, it better be an epic batlle :devil:

Ana or Nastya in 3. I doubt it will be a 2 setter :o

Nastya was a hot mess today... I'm not sure if she's going to be in the same form she played against JJ

Nastya will be winning!

She must have learnt something from when Vee literally blew her off the court. She'll be ready. I am totally confident she will win this match.

Or is 3 top 10 wins in one tournament - possibly 4 too much to ask of a 17yearold?

I don't think Nastya at age 17 can beat both Jelena and Ana, and Aga, at a Super Tier I.
Maybe I'm underestimating her, but it's asking a lot of a player who's never been in this situation

Ana, as long as she keeps the UE's down. Ana's power might be a bit too much for Anastasia at this point. But this was definitely a breakout tournament for her

Nastya upsets again. ;)
Ana hasn't been playing so good and Anastasia will be confident, hopefully.

Ajde Ana! :rocker2: Pavly has had a great run, but she's yet to play someone with major firepower, so hopefully Ana can do it in 2.

You just can´t expect a 17 year-old to win against a slamchampion in the latter stage of a big tournament. Besides that, 3 top-10 wins would be A LOT.

It reminds me a little of alizé cornet's rome run last year. She got destroyed when she met someone with a higher level.

I think pavlyuchenkova will put up a decent fight though, i think she'll win 6 games at least. Would be awesome if she won this though.

This is like an ana now vs. younger babyfat ana match!

Ana most likely. Nastya's had a great run, but just look at all the trouble she was having closing out the first set against Radwanska. If she keeps it close, which I think she will, I can't see her actually closing out a set or a match against Ana.

I don't know about that. From what I saw today, Pavlyuchenkova choked on the three occasions she had to serve out a set. That might work against a player with a soft serve, like Radwanska, but she's going to have to find confidence to beat a player like Ana. And I doubt her first WTA SF will be the place to find some.

I could be wrong, though. Either way, I'm very curious about this match.

with ana's regained confidence i am sure she is winning this one pretty smoothly...

If they both just go out and play their games, Ana's firepower will see her through in 2. However, this might not be a surefire win, since nerves could be a big factor. If Pavlyuchenkova just goes out there and plays as if she has nothing to lose, and Ana plays nervously, it could be tight.

Unfortunately, I've just had mental flashes of Ana's match against Coin, which constantly reminds me that anything can happen. :lol:

Unfortunately, I've just had mental flashes of Ana's match against Coin, which constantly reminds me that anything can happen. :lol:Yes, anything can happen with Ana - but not in late rounds (especially at big events). Here is all Ivanovic semifinals since 2006:

Linz/08 RADWANSKA, AGNIESZKA POL #10 WON 6-2 3-6 7-5
Zurich/08 WILLIAMS, VENUS USA #9 LOSE 4-6 6-3 6-4
RG/08 JANKOVIC, JELENA SRB #3 WON 6-4 3-6 6-4
Berlin/08 DEMENTIEVA, ELENA RUS #9 LOSE 6-2 7-5
IW/08 JANKOVIC, JELENA SRB #4 WON 7-6(3) 6-3
AO/08 HANTUCHOVA, DANIELA SVK #9 WON 0-6 6-3 6-4
Sydney/08 HENIN, JUSTINE BEL #1 LOSE 6-2 2-6 6-4
YEC/07 HENIN, JUSTINE BEL #1 LOSE 6-4 6-4
Luxembourg/07 ZVONAREVA, VERA RUS #27 WON 6-4 6-2
LA/07 JANKOVIC, JELENA SRB #3 WON 4-6 6-3 7-5
Wimbledon/07 WILLIAMS, VENUS USA #31 LOSE 6-2 6-4
RG/07 SHARAPOVA, MARIA RUS #2 WON 6-2 6-1
Berlin/07 VAKULENKO, JULIA UKR #53 WON 4-3 ret.
Amelia/07 GOLOVIN, TATIANA FRA #20 LOSE 6-4 3-6 6-4
Tokyo/07 SHARAPOVA, MARIA RUS #1 WON 6-1 0-1 ret.
Montreal/06 SAFINA, DINARA RUS #14 WON 6-1 6-4


When Ana once reach SF round, simple no way for some of her famous choke. Only result out of this which give some hope to Nastya is Amelia lose against Golovin - but IW is not warm-up mickey mouse tournament (and Ana was #17 in that time). With all respect to Pavlyuchenkova, but If Ana lose SEMIFINAL ROUND match tomorrow it will be for me IW/09 biggest surprise after Cetkovska upset Dementieva!

BTW 4 years ago when Ana was young like Nastya now, Ivanovic come to Miami like about 50th ranked upcoming and promising talent and have some kind of breakthrough tournament with careers 1st TOP10 win beating two TOP10 seeds (Petrova and Kuznetsova) before finally lose vs Mauresmo. Even if Nastya lose easly tomorrow she should be proud on herself on IW/09 result. She will be TOP30 next week and first next best ranked 1991 girl will be #150.

Thanks for the stats. :wavey: Yeah I guess the further she goes in a tournament, the better she gets.

Nastya is a fighter. But I agree Ana is on a much higher level than her. If it is in 2 sets it will be a tight 2.
