Vera would much rather play Maria than Sam. But Vera isnt sharp as last year. Still needs to kick it up a gear.

Two highest ranked Russian players. Maria leads h2h 6-3, but they haven't played since Toronto 2009 and Vera last won back in 2007. I see this going the distance and if Maria serve holds up, she should grind it out. But another 10+ DF and Vera will take that kind of gifts with both hands.

Is neither also possible? xd

Maria won the last meeting when she wasn't playing nearly as well as she does now...as usual, match rests in her hands and Vera will have to pray for DF's and errors. Maria in 2 barring a self-destruction

I'd be surprised if Maria lets this one slip.
It wouldn't be a total shock if she did though :o.

Maria in three. She is serving better, which makes her better than anyone but Serena on HC.

if masha serves like she did today i think she'll take this in 2, maybe 3

but if doublefault pova shows up then vera should be able to take this one

Maria was serving pretty well today, I hope she gives that a rest tomorrow or we might see the volcanic meltdown the commentators were predicting and pleading for today,I thought Bepa was miles away from one but the tits kept on with it:)

Possibly the most interesting match of the year. And judging by their last wins, it should be highly entertaining show.:drool:

It's gonna be HUUUGE, whoever wins!! :bounce:

They have a surprisingly competetive head-to-head actually.

On their form this week, it should be Maria in straights....but, after three great matches, Maria's probably due an utter shitfest :unsure:

No, I feel Rome vibration in this tournament she seems focused and should do the job in straights.

As odds (http://www.oddschecker.com/tennis/womens-tour/wta-cincinnati/maria-sharapova-v-vera-zvonareva/winner) indicate, Masha (in two).

For your information,Bepa hadn't recovered from her ankle injury by then.

Don't all the other Russians fall apart when they play Sharapova?

Fighterpova
Aug 20th, 2011, 03:04 AM
Not sure, but I would give the edge to Vera because Maria's serve completely falls apart vs Top players :shrug:
It wouldn't be a shock if Maria won either....It's really 50-50...

This matchup always makes me so sad:sad:. The two best players on the tour both in great form facing each other and its really a pity that one of them has to lose. Either way, this match will be a win-lose situation. I say Masha in 3:bigcry:

I'm thinking Maria fairly easily :shrug: She's been playing well against good players this week so I'm going for her in two sets something like 6-4 6-3. Let's Vera enter in Maria's punchbag list :drool: :boxing:

vozas
Aug 20th, 2011, 03:27 AM
Yay! Another punchbag is added to the list! She leads the Empress 5-1 so if they both make the final Maria collects another b*tch :P

In all seriousness, what exactly can Vera do to hurt Maria? This seems pretty straightforward.

Maria in 2.

She won't be a punchbag yet... it's only 6-3 atm.

You know!! Maria should have won the FO this year as well as the wimbledon!! Really!! She just somehow didn't hold her game which surprises me the MOST!!

So I hope that she can close the event by winning the title and keep her confident up for the USO.

For some reason I thought the punchbag list was for players who had 4 more victories in the H2H but it is 5+!! My bad! Still Maria should win.

MTF counts 4+ wins as punching bag, but TF 5+, idk why...

Please win Maria!

Ah I must have seen it there then!! I think there would be too many 4+ women H2H tho compare to the men....maybe not lol

Sharapova in 2 sets... just can't see Zvonareva troubling her at all

They only met once since Maria's shoulder surgery. Vera played poorly that match.
That was right before Oudin's USO run.
Vera was injured in Charleston that year and wasnt all the way back yet.

If Vera doesnt play Maria close, I will be surprised. Maria is not as good as she was, and Vera had her best year last year.
Maybe like Stosur she felt pressure to repeat 2010, but she should be good enough for this match

Mr.Sharapova
Aug 20th, 2011, 01:25 PM
I say Maria in two :shrug:. But Vera is a good player so you'll never know :angel:.

I hope it turns out to be a good match :yeah:.

Hope Maria wins on the court as much as winning on the poll here.
