there a lot of variables because both players have great games at their peaks. chanda leads the H2H 3-0 but they haven't played since 98. obviously i want chanda to win but i have to admit that likhovtseva demolition of schiavone has me a little worried. her last four sets have been 6-1, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 so i think that chanda is really going to have to turn up for this won.

chanda will win but it could be very tight.

I would have to go with Likhovtseva...neither are that consistent but, as Switz pointed out, her last four sets have been impressive (score-wise).

I think Likhovtseva will upset Rubin. i think Elena is very underranked and has the game of a top 10-15 player. Rubin can be so up and down in a match, and I think Likhovtseva is experienced enough to exploit that. Likhovtseva in 3 sets

Elena in 3.

Jan 23rd, 2004, 10:22 PM
I really really hope Chanda wins

This match should be in one of the top two stadiums at least. I have no idea why it is in court 3.

Jan 23rd, 2004, 10:26 PM
Likhovtseva in 3.

Rubin has gained momentum with each match and will thus dispense of Likhotsevwho effortlessly.

Jan 23rd, 2004, 11:30 PM
I hope so esqui! I think this will be a good match to see where chanda's game is at.

Jan 23rd, 2004, 11:48 PM
Elena in 2

Jan 23rd, 2004, 11:55 PM
could be a toughie for chanda, elena has been playing great but I expect chanda to still win in two close sets.

Jan 23rd, 2004, 11:56 PM

Jan 23rd, 2004, 11:58 PM

Yes she has, and she's definitely a decent player. Reached the QF at Wimbledon and AO beating Serena and Kim, but I bet Azza wouldn't know that ;)

Congrats to Rubin.
