I think it will go to three sets with Petra winning. She is playing too darn well.

Vera's defence will be too good.

If Sammy's horrible defense got her to a tie break, and headcase Flavia and her defense got a set then I see no reason why Vera can't win this match in straights.

She will frustrate the hell out of Petra, but she will have to change it up a lot. Can't just keep feeding flat balls towards Kvitova's forehand.

:) Good luck Vera.

Petra is putting together another well-timed run of form; the last one needed Serena to stop her. She has my vote against Bepa. ARF! :dog:

Vera in 3 sets. Should be a good match but Vera is too talented and experienced to lose here.

Since when did defense ever stop Petra?

Petra in 2.

I predict it will follow a pattern similar to Vera's match against Jovanovski.

Good luck to both :hearts: but mostly BEEP :inlove:

Petra in 2.

Clijsters def. Kvitova 6/1 6/1
Clijsters def Kvitova 6/3 6/0

Both in 2010.

Face it, she's a ballbasher and she usually crash against a good defense. The girl has beaten Stosur and Pennetta and people are already calling her the next number one :rolleyes:

Zvonareva in 2.

If I had to guess, a bunch of times long ago, in the Year of Our Lord 2010, when she lost 24 matches.

But so much has changed since then. So much.

I hate when players I like get successful and attract tards.

My vote is for Petra, but I'm a little worried about Vera's defense. But as Lindsay Davenport pointed out, Vera has looked to have been going back to her old ways of having a tendency to get hit off the court by big hitters. She was pushed by Safarova, a hard hitting Czech, so let's see what another lefty hard hitting Czech in Kvitova can do :yeah:

Vera will have to play far better than she has so far this tournament to have a chance in this match!

sorry but is zvonareva we are talking about there is no need to offend kim by comparing her to vera, just two different levels. flavia's defense is better than vera's but wasn't enough, so petra for me

:lol:

but really, i'd love to see kvitova win this one. she's ca. 500 million times as interesting as zonareva.

Its up to Kvitova. She hasn't won many big matches, but she has the bigger game of these 2

Zvonareva straight setted a lefty with better groundies and serve than Kvitova in R3;so yes, her defence will definitely trouble Kvitova a lot.

I can see Petra winning this match but I still think the more likely outcome is Vera in 2. But whoever wins I think it will be in two routine sets. Whoever gets on top after the 1st 20 minutes will stay on top.

Vera played Bammer, Safarova, Benesova, so this is her 4th lefty in 5 matches

I kind of want both of them to win...................but want Zvonareva to win this one..............Kvitova has many more chances and she will go far....but Vera.

vera in 3, something like 4-6, 6-3, 6-1. vera will wear her down and kvitova will tire from her run here and in brisbane catching up to her

Vera please!! But I fear this Petra, she is playing great. I go with my heart and Vera to win it! Will go to 3 I'm sure.

I'm certainly not brimming with confidence about this one, Petra could blow Bepa away, or Bepa could run her around, Bepa needs a good % of well directed 1st serves in as Petra could feed of her 2nd serves :sad: . Hope Bepa can battle her way through.

Kvitova is hitting the ball very well and she has improved a lot but her movement is still kinda weak, Vera's defense will break her confidence. I see Vera winning in 2, 7/6 6/3.

From what I've seen, Vera in 2. Her defense has been incredible.

This should be a good match. The women took over this major. They are the storylines.
