arguably the toughest first round match, looks to be a killer for both players - so who will win it?
both have very different styles of play, but one thing is for sure - it's going to be a LONG match, and the two will cover lots of ground.
discuss and vote!

Jankovic...I mean, it's not like you're gonna count on Anna to go for the winner. I don't think this is gonna be that big of a match, Jelena should take it in two moderate-to-tight sets...something like 6-3, 6-4

Smashnova played a player similiar to Jankovic in Vaidisova this week. She lost. The third set was pathetic. Jankovic has the power game and moves a little better than Smashnova. I give the edge to Jankovic.

Sounds like one of those matches which won´t get broadcasted, instead we get a 6-1 6-0 first round match;)

I say Jelena will win.

I would like Jelena to win, but she’s like the bible, very hard to read.

depends on the translation.
richard the fifth sux, the oxford roman-catholic church one sux as well.
my friend has a good translation that i can't remember who wrote.

but i read it in hebrew, so it's harder.
but i'm also majoring bible-studies. i LOVE the bible.

I think jankovic can win. Anna lost to nicole whos a slighter build than jankovic but much the same game.

nobody moves better or faster than Smashnova.

I think she might not be the fastest in comparsion to her tiny size (she and panova used to look like bunnies in the time where speed was still a weapon and not as common as today) but she surely is quicker than jelena.
plus, she moves better since she has no strength if she doesn't time it exactly. she just learned how much she has to run to reach comfortably, and she mastered it.
really, her nickname is very appropriate.
