I think Petra in 2. :cool: . I'm still not convinced Stosur will be able to handle the barrage of Petra's game.

I'm worried for Sam tbh - Kvitova in 3.

I think it will be Kvitova in two tight sets. Go Petra!

if stosur serves like she did tonight she will win easily. kvitova is going to have trouble returning serve especially with two double handed shots.

If Sam serves well she'll win, otherwise she'll be in for a dog-fight. She looked vulnerable at times tonight.

If Kvitova serves very well, Stosur will be in trouble because of Kvitova's left handed serve to Stosur's backhand.

Stosur's backhand was very solid tonight - actually, I was more impressed with her backhand than her forehand tonight. (Probably because I know that the forehand can be a great shot consistently.) So if she can carry her focus and intensity from tonight's match into her next, I think that she'll get through. :)

But having said that, I think that Petra will be a very dangerous opponent, and she can definately win if Stosur's level isn't high.

Her flat hitting worries me too.

I'm hoping Sam but it will be a tough match for her.

I have to say that Petra should win this match, though I'm not sure if she'll hold up mentally.

If Goatra's on, Sammy is toast. Should be an entertaining match either way.

God I hope Sam wins, I really want to see her make a deep run again and really prove herself as a top player.

Please win Sammy. Hopefully a good match.

Kvitova in two tight sets - Sam's kick serve is perfect hight for Kvitova's forehand..

Is there a thread about Stosur winning?

6-3 6-2

Too routine to make a thread? :lol:

Wimbledon SF v FO F, on hardcourt.
Should be good. I think it depends on Kvitova. Her game is better than Sam's when she's on, imo, but Sam is on more often. Which is why she is top 5 & Petra is not

I'm waiting for the stupidity of the AO organizers to steal Stosur's fate by scheduling this as a night, indoor match.

Kvitova's potential magnifies indoors. If AO is really behind their player they will not schedule this match with the roof closed.

I'll go with Kvitova. I'm starting to really like both players so it will be disappointing to see one of them lose in the third round.

You meant "seal Stosur's fate"?

What makes you think only Kvitova will benefit from indoors? I'm sure Sam will be happy to shank less.

They don't shut the roof for night matches...

Petra is one of the most dangerous players in the draw.

She'll take out Sam in a thriller.

Sam, hopefully.
I think she has recovered pretty well, her game is looking like it's getting back to it's strengths.

Stosur in str8ts, even though I suspect that the useless Dushevina made Sam Biceps' current form look much better than it really is.

As for :cheer: KvittyBabe :cheer: , her first serve isn't as good as it seems, and is only a big weapon on ultrafast surfaces (grass, old skool indoors). On this blue clay, even against a woeful returner such as Stosur, it just won't be big enough for her to get the first strike in consistently, and she'd need that just to stay afloat.
