View Full Version : First time GS semi-finalist

May 28th, 2004, 05:55 PM
after Justine & Nadia's loss, there will be a first time GS semi-finalist:
Zheng, Suarez, Sharapova or Weingartner

I think it will be between Suarez and Sharapova, tho Weingartner is really on a roll the last few days
can't wait till Thursday ;)

Paola!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I don't think it will be Sharapova(at least I don't hope so). Álthough I love to watch her body her game these days is just clay-court-raping. So I hope it will be Suarez.

May 28th, 2004, 06:01 PM
I agree that it's between Paola and Maria. I hope Paola can capitalise on her opportunity to reach the semi-finals here this time.

Vamos Paola!:bounce:

Go Jie!!!

May 28th, 2004, 06:19 PM
GO MARLENE :bounce:

Go Maria! I think she can beat a nervous Mauresmo in the Semis!

I want the Chinese girl to get to the semifinals.

May 28th, 2004, 07:01 PM
suarez. she's been here before and sharapova has taken advantage of weaker opponents and an off-form vera

May 28th, 2004, 11:39 PM
Wow who would have predicted this??

Im pulling for Sharapova!


May 28th, 2004, 11:40 PM
wow, if its Zheng, that really will be something! well, it will be something if either of them get there, slightly less for Paola as shes has already been in the quaters, but still, its going to be interesting to see who makes it!

May 29th, 2004, 12:54 AM
Paola :D

May 29th, 2004, 12:57 AM
I would love to say Zheng..... but she is a ball of nerves.

May 29th, 2004, 01:26 AM
I'm starting to like this Zheng girl!! :D so i hope she'll make it! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

May 29th, 2004, 01:34 AM
Paola almost made it to the Semis 2 years ago losing to Clarrisa...I don't think she will lose to Weingartner/Sharapova although Marlene is playing really WELL!

May 29th, 2004, 01:40 AM
sharapova. her serve is too big for paola to handle, and so it her return. paola, if she really puts her running shoes on and doesn't make any mistakes-- she can beat maria in 3.

May 29th, 2004, 01:54 AM
I think it will be Suarez. She's great on clay and hits a good ball. It she faces Momo it will be interesting seeing as she has beaten Momo at RG before.

May 29th, 2004, 01:56 AM
Come on Zheng! Make history here!

May 29th, 2004, 01:58 AM
it's hard to tell at this moment
but i think is will be a gr8 match between Paola & MaSha

May 29th, 2004, 02:02 AM
I think we are in for a surprise.It just could be Jie or Marlene!!!!

Hope Zheng can make it. Chinese have good endurance! ;)

May 29th, 2004, 03:06 AM
it's hard to tell at this moment
but i think is will be a gr8 match between Paola & MaSha

i forget to say.... :p
Go Paola

May 29th, 2004, 03:08 AM
Please Udachi Masha!!

May 29th, 2004, 07:47 AM
Ahh the truth is eitheir Paola or Maria, but i hope zheng could be the semi-finalist.

May 29th, 2004, 08:00 AM
GO PAOLA!!! :bounce:

May 29th, 2004, 08:23 AM
go maria! shes prooved wimbeldone last year wasnt a fluke. the girl is a big match player having thrashed dokic at wimby last year (jelena played well and always does at wimby) and vera (clay court specialist)....shes shown versatility :)

May 29th, 2004, 08:30 AM
hopefully paola
maria is bound to make many semi's at all the slams in the future, but this might be paolas only chance

May 29th, 2004, 08:31 AM
Definitly between Maria and Paola

But if Maria can play like she did against Vera.. she's in the Semis ;) :hearts:

May 29th, 2004, 10:32 AM
I also think it is between Paola and maria. It would be great to see Paola make it as she has been to a couple of QF already and clay is her favourite surface.

I don't necessarily agree that if Maria plays as she did against Vera she would beat Paola. Paola isn't going to make as many UE's as Vera did, and is going to make Maria hit a lot more balls. You could see in Maria vs Vera that Maria has no defensive game once she is forced on the run Vera either made an UE or won the point, maria didn't have much of a say. Paola is very consistent.

Maria will make many semis so I'd like to see Paola get there this time.

Good Luck 2 Miss Maria Sharapova!!!! :bounce:

I'd be happy for any of them though its a great achievement even if luck has ALOT to do with it!
