Kim's Cakewalk Top Half
-----------------------------------------------------

(1) Kim def. (7) Farina Elia :o

http://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20040212/capt.meu11002121814.gaz_de_france_meu110.jpghttp://us.news2.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/ap/20040211/capt.meu10202111632.gaz_de_france_meu102.jpg

Farina Elia has no chance ... Kim is pissed about AO and is determined for redemption by winning her first title of 2004 here in Paris. The only way Kim even loses a set is if she loses concentration (like at Wimbledon 2003) but that will not happen. Kim: 6-3, 6-2.

Safina def. (5) Francesca :p

http://www.dinarasafina.altervista.org/us200201.jpghttp://championships.wimbledon.org/images/players/wtas666.jpg

This is a very close call. Francesca can trouble Dinara with her loopy topspin and slice but since Dinara dealt w/ Patty's junk, there is no reason to think that she cannot deal with Francesca's junk. Dinara wins 3-6, 6-4, 6-2.

RUSSIA vs. FRANCE Fed Cup revenge bottom half
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pierce def. Bovina :bounce:

http://www.mary-pierce.org/Gaz_2004/mary.jpghttp://www.geocities.com/bovinanet/pictures/77MosvCap.jpg

Mary can do everything Lena can do, only better. Mary wins 7-5, 6-3.

Golovin def. (2) Dementieva :confused:

http://eur.news1.yimg.com/eur.yimg.com/xp/afpji/20040210/040210213458.kgf8rxq60b.jpghttp://eur.news1.yimg.com/eur.yimg.com/xp/afp_photo/20040211/sge.jjl68.110204160842.photo00.default-384x246.jpg

This one is too close to call. Elena has been playing like crap but Tatiana got a free ride to the QF when Smashnova and Dani pulled up lame. I still think Tatiana will pull this one out, 6-4, 0-6, 7-5.


Your thoughts?

i agree with all, except for the last one. Dementieva has been playing like CRAP since the 2004 season has started, but i think Golovin might get a little nervous about this match.

Lena plays 100% different than Mary does now.

Do your homework.

couldnt agree more..... Lena attacks the net at all opportunities. She will def. trouble Mary, and I think, IMO, has a great chance to win this match in straight sets!

Kim
Mary (if the match reports are accurate)
Tatiana unless Elena D is playing a lot better.

And the one Eurosport should show but probably won't.

Dinara was very impressive but another match will be challenging and few players outside the top 5 could repeat that form. Francesca doesn't have all of Patty's variety but she has more than most. Francesca is faster though, she can handle power players and unless the match is hopelessly one -sided, is a tougher fighter. Safina needs two dominating sets or Francesca will pick off her errors and run her to death.

Fanboy, post this garbage in Mary's forum.

Backhand power goes to Mary now. Angles and such are Lena's forte.

Power means little if it is not coupled with precision. Elena's backhand is much more consistent.

I wouldn't say Lena's backhand is much more consistent. She mishits it plenty. Plus, her technique is prone to sloppiness when she's forced cover much area.

Lena's backhand used to be a lethal shot, and that has changed since the weight loss, and inept change of strategy.

I think:

Kim will def. Elia
Safina will def. Schiavone
Bovina will def. Pierce
Golovin will def. Dementieva

True, I haven't seen Lena this year. Last fall Pierce's backhand was pretty laughable, I saw many of her matches and she was hitting it very wild.

Think
Kim will bt. Farina
Safina will bt. Schiavone in 3 sets
Bovina will bt. Pierce, maybe I'm too optimistic
Dementieva will bt. Golovin
