Please Na, I love Petko but we need someone able to beat Wozniacki in semi. Na can be horrible at times, but she's more reliable that Andrea right now.

I think Na for this one......she has more experience in playing grand slam quarters and her form from Sydney will probably be big factors.

I would do anything for Na to put Petko in her place and smash her 60 60!

Come on NaNa kill that thing.

Everytime I see the Na's BET thread, I feel Na has less chance!
OK...

Li Na easily. Petkovic didnt impress me today at all. Sharapova just played inexplicably bad for whatever reason.

NaNa should win this easily. Petkovic played well today and was still little more than average; Golden Flower has waaaaaaaaaay more to her game.

Bitter much? :lol:

If Andrea is a thing then your precious Maria is a non-entity after that performance.

However I think will win easily 62 62 unfortunetly :sad:

First meetings are always tough to call. Lina is the favorite with her experience and current form, but Andy has a big game and can win on a good day.

Petko in 3, she is getting better with each match and can hopefully improve again here. Thank u Na for kicking Vika out :lol: but hope she loses now. C'mon Andrea :bounce:

It was quite a shock for them! Im sure the dance was the thing that really drove them into a frenzy, the beatdown was bad enough. Petkorazzi will be above Maria in the rankings soon enough :dance:

I hope Na doesn't under-estimate Andrea... I guess she'd have expected to face Maria or Venus at this stage. Hopefully she won't have a let-down. C'mon Na! :D

Li all the way to the title. Road is absolutely clear now. Neither Kim nor Caroline( who will never win a slam) will win this year. So Li Na for the title.

I expect Li to win easy. I think Vika would beat Petkovic also.
Li-Caro SF would be very interesting.

I think Li will actually win this one, but hoping for Andrea to pull through.

I would like Petko to surprise her fans again, but Na is dftly too strong ATM.

heart wants Petko

With this type of draw, if Na doesn't make the final, it will be a fail on her part.

Hopefully a nice match but I think ErrorNa will finally show up.:o
I think that GOAT Na is slowly pushing ErrorNa away. I have noticed that she is developing a backup plan for when ErrorNa comes back. She starts hitting with a lot more topspin until she starts getting her flatter shots better.

Love Petkovic, but Li Na better win. Petkovic has improved a lot, but she doesn't have the power to hit through CW if they meet in the semi. She won the Sharapova match largely b/c of Sharapova's errors than her own play.

Caroline is benefitted from a very soft draw. IMO among the top 4, CW and Vera have easier draws with dangerous floaters have been placed in other's sections. Vika, Nadia have been playing well and certainly can go further if they have different draws. CW's movement for some reasons has slowed down significantly and her hitting power also weaker comparing to her form at the end of last year. It would be a shame if she get through her section thanks to other's disadvantage of going through a much tougher draw.


Li always has the game to compete to the top players. I remember she was playing tough with Lindsay and Maria just to end up losing due to the nerves. Her match with Kim at Wimbledon some years ago she was going toe to toe with Kim until melting down. Lately she overcame her demons especially when playing in Australian. Last year Na Li playing Serena tough and fearless, outhit Serena at times with amazing angles and shots. Serena prevailled at the end with her Champion's gear, but Li Na was no doubt one of the top 3 best at the Australian open last year. This year she is playing well down under, so with no Serena hopefully she can get to the Final to tough it out with Kim in an epic match.

Really hard to pick a winner. But I'll go for Na in three sets. Either way, they're both adorable and deserving to win for me.

I keep waiting for Na's form to collapse, but so far it hasn't happened. If she plays like she did against Vika, Petkovic is toast.
