I think she is fiesty and can hang in there with Kim. Not saying she will beat her, but I think she will put up a fight. Safina imho is a tough 3rd opponent.

I would say No at the moment, she is not consistent and fresh enough to beat Kim. Although Kim may not be in full form, but I believe a 60% healthy Kim will manage to defeat her. My prediction: 6-3 6-3

I agree with that. Kim played great today much better than her first round. But I think Dinara is tough and I completely expected her to beat Coetzer. I may think Dinara is a tough opponent cause I am a fan of hers though;) She will need a better start than she got against JHH at the US Open where she didn't start playing well to the second half of the second set.

Kim will have no problem beating Safin if she plays as well as she did today.
In two easy sets.

Dinara will have to decrease her unforced errors, she made 45 today but it didn't hurt her as Coetzer has no weapons to hurt her with. But I think she can do this:)

Safina is a good enough player were she should be able to cause Kim a few problems, but not enough to give Kim any real worries, unless Kim is off or the ankle begins to bother her Kim should move through in straights.

I don't think she can trouble Kim. Kim's game is always on and ready to go in the early rounds of the Majors.

With that said it might be a little competative. 6:2 6:2.

Yes. But Kim will sneak it out somehow. Dinara is just really playing solid tennis. I wouldn't be too upset if she outperforms Kim in their next match. Go girls!

I'm sorry to say it, but I think dinara will only win if kim's injury flares up.

6-2 7-5 Kim. Perhaps a tie-break in the second.

My prediction: Kim 6-2 6-3. But this is only based on what I saw of Dinara's potential at the US Open. It really depends on which court the match is played (centre court or a show court) and when (day/night). Beating Amanda Coetzer this week and Conchita Martinez two weeks ago should say something about Dinara's current form, but my prediction stands.

No, but it will be a nice hitting session for Kim, Safina isn't consistant enough to bother Kim.

Nope. Kim is too good. Safina's movement and consistency will let her down. I THINK. A bit like the USOpen against Justine.
