Semi-final match.

Caroline leads the H2H 3-2

Last meeting was in 2010 Cincinnati with Bartoli coming out on top 6-4 6-1.....

It will be a good match I think. Caro is becoming a different player. Too close to call for me.

Wozzinator:worship: (although Bartoli makes me nervous) should be interesting.
Gotta go with Caro though!!

Both have been playing some good tennis.
But Im confident that Marion can beat Caro again.

Probably Caroline.

But Bartoli often manages to win matches when you don't expect her to win. On the contrary, she loses a lot of matches when you expect her to win.

When they played in Cincy Caro had just won In Copenhagen then took a long trip.
I expect Caro to win this in 2.

The match is entirely on Bartoli's rocket.

It's all on Mono--if she's on, and if she's able to deal with lobs and a lot balls being returned. I think she'll take in straights.

It'll be interesting to see who - if either of them - is in the zone tomorrow. Today Caro was in the zone. In Cincinatti it was Marion and Caro couldn't deal with it (like she couldn't deal with an in-the-zone Petra at Wimbledon). I have Caro as the favorite but I'm far from 100% sure she'll beat an in-form Marion.

Both Bartoli and Wozniacki appear to be in a very good form, so it might be a very close match. DonŽt know really who will win, but if IŽd have to put my money on one of them, it would be probably Wozniacki rather than Bartoli.

Alejandrawrrr
Feb 24th, 2011, 05:23 PM
Despite the rankings I could see this going either way... Very close call if Bartoli comes out firing. Then again, Caro's been playing a lot better recently too... :shrug: Could be a great match.

i always root for the underdog so i hope bartoli wins, but i think wozniacki will win even if i think it won't be as easy as today, flavia is a lesser version of wozniacki so she has no answers to wozniacki's game, bartoli can hit more flat and powerful plus she has a decent serve (flavia doesn't), so bartoli has a chance

Marion is on fire against a still not 100% healthy Caro.

Marion in two.

Time for Marion to play world #1 tennis.

It's either a semi or a title for Wozniacki here, IMO.

Bartoli has shown she's capable of demolishing her and she's been playing pretty well too, so I picked her. I don't expect Wozniacki to have similar groundstroke stats to her match against Pennetta.

I'm not sure here, as both have played well.
Going to go on heart - Marion.

If Caro plays like today, she'll win easily. But Marion has also played well recently...still go for Caro in 2.

I'd like to see Caro go into IW with a winning streak.
She and Kim fighting for #1 are the story in womens tennis now.

I have a queer hunch. I think if Bartoli gets 40+ votes, she'll lose in 2.

In the form Wozniacki is in at the moment I would be hugely surprised is she didn't win and probably quite routinely too.

I heard Caro in her presser yesterday and she sounds like she has a head cold.
But it hasnt hurt so far this week.

Anyway, IW & Miami much more important.

Yeah, yeah, yeah we heard that since Monday and the girl is barely losing games, try to fool someone else.

Expect Caro to win even if i am rooting for Marion but i have still a little hope that Marion can destroy her like she did against Peer and Peng. That would be so enjoyable :drool:

Well all you have to do is listen to her speak and it is obvious that she has a cold. It's also obvious that so far it hasn't affected her, at least not in a negative way. Over in her players forum some of us are speculating that she is playing more aggressively in an effort to keep the points short and conserve energy.

Bartoli will come out on top :yeah:.

She beat quite easily Caro in Cincinnati and she can do it again :)

If you're meaning 'tennis knowledge' as in an objective evaluation who's fave going into a match, socalled betting pages are about a 1,000 times better than GM voting, yes :wavey:

PS Good luck hitting 'winners' in your computer game. Winners matter the most!!!!!:lol:

I dont play a computer game sadly. Thus, I have no knowledge whatsoever. I just post randomly in threads in which I know nothing about. :tears: Maybe I should take up such a useful addiction as betting.

I'm guessing "Caro" was the odds on fave to beat Marion in Stuggart and Cincinatti, and to win her last two slam semis :)

Be fair now, Bartoli had been on fire the two previous matches. Had she kept that up, we could have had an epic match. In fact I expected a very close match, so I didn't vote on this poll.
