Maria Sharapova!:) I think.:)

Jan 22nd, 2004, 05:54 AM
i think sharapova, although myskina should be considered the fav i think

Jan 22nd, 2004, 05:55 AM
I thinks its really unfair to both girls that they have to face off in a 3rd round match ! I think Myskina will win but Sharapova could spring a suprise. Either way a great match is guaranteed !

Jan 22nd, 2004, 05:57 AM
If it was a quarterfinal, Myskina would be a sure bet, but so early in the tournament upsets are still very likely.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 05:58 AM
Sharapova in 2 sets:

I'd say 6-3 6-4

Jan 22nd, 2004, 06:04 AM
Maria, of course.

Watched some of Myskina this week and she's
lifted up the game since the Hopman Cup. Looking really sharp.
Also saw Maria, and she's really whacking the covers off the
little yellow ball. Based on experience and strategy, I'll give
the edge to Myskina. She'll try to breakdown the Maria game
by forcing her to do something other than smacking the ball
from the back.

I think Myskina in 3.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 06:14 AM
Myskina in three.Has Sharapova toned down her screams yet?Not that it has anything to do with the match...just wondering. :cool:

Jan 22nd, 2004, 06:15 AM
Both being coached by Lansdorp, they must know each others game well.

the scream is gone

Jan 22nd, 2004, 06:19 AM
Maria hits very hard on both her forehand and backhand which are very aggressive from what i have seen in Hong Kong, but I would give en edge to Anastasia's backhand and experience.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 06:19 AM
:woohoo: the scream is gone

Jan 22nd, 2004, 07:58 AM
I think experience will be keyword in that match. So Myskina...

Jan 22nd, 2004, 08:17 AM
I think Myskina will win in 3 sets..Should be a really tough match!!

Jan 22nd, 2004, 08:22 AM
6-3 6-4 for Myskina.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 09:20 AM
I still give the edge to Myskina but Sharapova is a tough tough opponent.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 09:23 AM
I say Sharapova will win this match, I don;t know why but i just feel like she will

Jan 22nd, 2004, 09:29 AM
Maria in 2 tight sets 7-6 7-5 something like that

Jan 22nd, 2004, 09:53 AM
I think and hope Maria Sharapova in two sets... 6-2 6-3 or something :D

Jan 22nd, 2004, 10:31 AM
i also hope and think maria will win... it will be very tight though

Jan 22nd, 2004, 10:33 AM
dunno, but i hope it'll be myskina.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 12:32 PM
I would hope Myskina...

Jan 22nd, 2004, 12:50 PM
myskina is gonna win definitely so ya'll wrong

Jan 22nd, 2004, 01:30 PM
Maria. She can do everything better than Myskina.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 01:58 PM
I think Maria will win.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 02:43 PM

These are my two favorite Russians. Maria reminds me so much of venus in game as well as attitude. Maria knows she is capable of beating top players she knows she is one of the best in the world and only needs the experience.

Myskina is a firecracker and I like her game but sometimes her temper unravels her.

Myskina should really win this match. She is the best russian by far but if she goes on a temper tantrum Maria will snatch this match from her and run with it.

Either russian would be a good match for kim. Myskina beat kim last year and Maria almost did it as well and actually could have if she'd had more experience.

Myskina, she's got a certain something in her game that brought her to the top ten.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 03:16 PM
I really think Maria can do this. After beating Amélie and almost beating Justine, I see no reason why she shouldn't be able to beat Anastasia.

All that said, Anastasia's no slouch and will be more than willing to put up a fight. I just think Maria will be gunning for her and her belief in herself and determination will hopefully score her the victory.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 03:20 PM
I think it's gonna be very close. Wish they'd televise this, but I doubt ESPN even knows who they are :rolleyes: :mad:

Jan 22nd, 2004, 03:29 PM
Myskina in 2

Jan 22nd, 2004, 03:53 PM
Nastya in 3 sets!!!!!!!! Go Nastya!

Jan 22nd, 2004, 03:58 PM
Maria in 3

Jan 22nd, 2004, 04:06 PM
Maria in 3

Jan 22nd, 2004, 04:10 PM
I like both players, but I really hope and think that Maria will pull it off this time.

Jan 22nd, 2004, 04:21 PM
I actually think Maria will upset Myskina. I like both really much, but I think Maria wants it more than Myskina, some how...
