A very interesting 2nd round match in Sydney between Myskina and Peng. Both ladies are undefeated so far in 2005 but one of the streaks will come to an end.

2005 Results:

Myskina

def. Gronefeld 6-3, 6-3
def. Dulko 6-2, 6-1
def. Schiavone 6-3, 6-2

Peng

def. Pin 6-4, 6-1
def. Obziler 6-4, 6-0
def. Chaladkova 6-1, 6-2
def. Washington 6-4, 6-2

Obviously Nasty is favored but Peng is playing well so far in 2005. Myskina also probably dosen't want to be at Sydney anymore after voicing her injury concerns today so if this match is not going her way, she may just tank it. :tape:

Shuai hits easily as hard if not harder shot per shot with Myskina...this could be great match!

If Myskina is to live up to being #3 the world its players like this she has to empthatically destroy.

a scoreline of 7-5 7-5 would not be something that would signal good form.

If Myskina plays anything like she did against Francessca at the hopman cup she will win 6-2 6-1. Her shots are very flat and hard.... I am shure Peng will like it.... but Myskina will probably be too good.

Will be interesting to see Peng play, reducing the small no of players in the top #100 whom I haven't seen yet. :)

I disagree.

Forinstance, even when Venus was at the top
she had trouble against lower ranked players
outside of the Top10.

Even with close scorelines it still doesn't
matter so long as you beat them IMO.

Things can differ for a person from round
to round, player to player.

That said, Myskina in two easy sets! :cool:

Shuai has been playing well and beating higher ranked opponents, but Myskina has to be the favourite as shes in a different league. But if she is off, and theres a good chance of that since she hasnt played Sydney well in previous years, then Shuai has a chance.

Sydney is supposed to be a difficult tournament. If Anastasia is going to beat Vera, or Molik, or Davenport, or Dementieva, later this week, she had better take of care of business here.

shaui is a very promising, i'm sure she'll have some success in her career but i think that it's too early for her to beat a top player especially when she's in shape! :) so my prediction is : myskina def peng 6/3 6/1 :)

Isn't it interesting when Peng def. Myskina 6:3 6:1?

Myskina also probably dosen't want to be at Sydney anymore after voicing her injury concerns today so if this match is not going her way, she may just tank it. :tape:

I guess you knew something we didn't. What do you predict for AO ?

Shuai! You came thru just like I predicted and ushered Nasty out of the tournament
