I would love to see Misa back where she was at her highest, but I want Lena to get up there more. Lena in 2.

I like Misa but Lena will be too tough for her since Lena has better results/in slightly better form this season while Misa just starts to get her form back. Lena in 3 but I hope for an upset.:angel:

Lena in 2.

Four the year Vesnina is 10-4. Krajicek is 9-5. Not a great difference. But that doesn't tell the whole story.

Vesnina has 8 top 60 wins this year. Krajicek has none. Three of the four players Vesnina lost to were ranked in the top 25. Three of the five players Krajicek lost to were outside the top 75. Vesnina has thus far this year defeated two players who have both in turn defeated Krajicek, namely Wozniacki and Vaidisova. Quite simply both girls are doing well but at completely different levels.

Can Krajicek win? Of course she can. But it would be a big and most surprising upset were it to happen. Vesnina looks to me to be a very solid favourite to win this one in two.

Anyway, Lena in 2.
