Peng lost in straight sets, and still not ranked yet,
Ally was double bagelled, Maria lost to Els in straight set too,
next time, i'm giving out those WC's :rolleyes:

anyways, Sveta is doing great and moves on,
the wave of Russians just doesnt stop coming
here are 2 hyped players,

Anna-the supermodel
Dinara-world #1's sister

but they are now all at 60's ranking
so here is the comparison,

-best showing for Anna here is the final
for Dinara, this is her debut
-at 16 Anna reached Final here, and this is
like i said, Dinara's debut

yes the tour has changed much,
and yes Anna has slacked off,
but with her experience,
she still has a chance.

I haven't seen much of Safina, but she seems to be a the type of player that Anna tends to have better results against - those who are as prone to errors as Anna is. Plus, for whatever reason, it seems like Anna wins against her fellow Russians. Maybe she just doenst' like to be upstaged by them :p
Anyways I can see Anna winning a tight first set, then being blown out in the second, but regrouping and winning in the third.

I think the match will go the the player making less mistakes.

If Anna plays the way she played her first round of the Aus Open, she should take it in straight sets, 6-2 6-1. But if she plays like her second round match against Justine Henin-Hardene, she will lose badly, 6-3 6-0

Safina is going into this match with absolutely nothing to lose, so i'm sure she will be on court 'like a fish out of water', will soon get tired, inexperienced, and Anna will attack.

I cannot really say, but this is on Anna, it will depend on how she is playing. We all know she 'blows Hot and Cold.'

GOOD LUCK ANNA!!!!!!! :bounce:

I wish I had FULL TV Coverage...I think this would be a great match!

My prediction:

Kournikova-- 75 26 61
