:lol: From what I saw from Wozniacki especially in the 2nd set if Ivanovic plays half of what you call decent tennis she could defeat the Dane comfortably. 6-3 7-5.

Ivanovic is by far the more talented player, and should theoretically be a nightmare match-up for the Woz (for the same reasons she used to pwn JaJa back in the day) ... but sadly I doubt she has the mental toughness to win this one.

Wozniacki to win 7-5 7-6 after Ivanovic squanders something like 11 setpoints.

I think Ivanovic can pull it off, just bomb Fedniacki's FH with her own FH and she should draw a fair amount of errors. Fedniacki's FH was leaking errors off Halep's pace/depth of shot, and Halep's pace of shot hardly holds a candle to VIP's FH.

Wozniacki 63 62. Ivanovic cannot handle Woz's consistency

It all depends on Ivanovic fragile mental state: if she can keep her forehand in she will win confortably, if she plays her usual shit she lose to Caro, simple as that

Caro has.nothing to hurt Ana, and this match up is entirely on VIP racquet

Yes, but does VIP even know that? :lol: And more importantly, will she take her chances and not fold like a cheap tent? I fear Wozniacki is too consistent for her, but I will cross my fingas.

The 2 Dubai Duty Free brand ambassadors wind up in the same quarter. If Caroline is back to her usual form, she should be tough.

Happy with either of them winning. Caro "needs it" more, but I'd love for Ana to get the win and make a Semi.

Well, in their last match (Beijing 2010), Ivanovic did land a LOT of blows, and handled her just fine in the long rallies. And that was Woz at her absolute peak, a level she's nowhere close to now (Ivanovic is probably at around the same level as she was in late 2010, possibly marginally higher). So there's no doubt that technically she has the game to do it.

The big danger is that Ana goes in KNOWING she has a great chance, and thus puts loads of pressure on herself and ends up shitting her pants and playing terribly...happened SO many times with her in recent years when she's been looking she has great opportunities or draws have opened up for her :facepalm:

I expect a big diplomatic incident tomorrow, because it's not normal that there are two ambassadors of the same thing (Dubai Duty Free Shop). Can be only one, so one ambassador will be expelled! Of course that her excellency Ana Ivanovic much more deserve to stay because all this years she shopped so much, permanently and persistently, unlike Wozniacki which is promoted into Dubai Duty Free Shop global brand ambassador only because she won last season some tournament sponsored by that company.

I think Ana will win, but it must be in straight sets because Wozniacki is WTA TOP100 player and Ana have big problems last 15 months to beat in three sets anyone from TOP100, especially TOP50 players. So final result tomorrow will be something like 6-0 7-6 for Ivanovic.

Honestly, I'll be happy if Ana wins a set. The QF is a decent result for her now, she had two good wins in this tournament, but she's really not a favorite in this match, no matter how average Caro's results have been lately.

I'd bet on a really streaky match that Wozniacki barely sneaks out of by the sheer virtue of her consistency.

Ana should be a nightmare matchup for Caroline, but she doesn't know that.

Wozniacki's FH was able to scramble back much more FH bombs from Baby Anci back then (at her peak) contrary to right now, because as I said, the FH was leaking errors when Halep was playing on it with depth and average pace.

Ana leads h2h 2-1 :oh: I think Caro is a good matchup for Ana. Last time they played was Beijing 2010 with Caro pretty much at her peak, and Ana still gave her a tough and close match. :shrug:

Its all about Ana, if she can keep it mentally together plus serve well she has a chance. I doubt it will happen tough. Anyway, suprise us Ana, we believe in you :cheer:

I expect Ana to blow Caro off the court in the 1st set, then fold like a cheap tent and lose in 3!

When all your hope is in VIP, and its not Bali, means you are really desperate. Even now when Caro isnt even a threat.

I hope Ana but I think Caro. Ivanovic is too weak mentally, too often misses her chances when opportunities to do something big appear.

They both played better in that match than they do now. Ana's fh looks really better in that video. It was a close, good match, but Caro was on fire and she had an edge.

Ana's a bad match up for Caro, especially now when Wozniacki isn't playing well. But Ana winning is always in doubt.

I think Baby Anci could win this in 2, though. Or if she goes completely mad, Wozniacki in 3.

Feb 22nd, 2012, 06:43 PM
Time to even the H2H Caro! As long as she doesn't give Ana puff balls to her forehand she'll have a good chance to win. Caro's forehand might be bad but Ana runs like crazy to avoid any BH.

If VIP's forehand comes out firing and her backhand doesn't deset her she can close Woz, who was far from impressive today.

Wozniacki in 2 sets

Curtos07
Feb 22nd, 2012, 08:06 PM
Ana certainly has the game to beat Caro. But I am just not too confident given the way she played today and her trouble holding serve. Obviously Kirilenko is a much different player than Caro, so who knows. But Ana will need to step it up. I hope she can pull off the win, but I have to go with Caro in 2.

Tennis90
Feb 22nd, 2012, 08:08 PM
I kinda like that the pressure is on Caro, at least on paper.
However, this match is going to be all Ana.
She has the weapon and power to destroy Caro's game, but her consistence is the main problem.
If she succeeds in finding the right amount of power, and in keeping the ball in while attacking,
this match is going to go her way.
Go Ana !

Wozniacki has one of the best forehands and defensive strategies in the game. Ivanovic can crack backhands at high speeds and can work long rallies in her favour. Wozniacki should be able to win in three tough sets.
