Yeah Mary is not a player who underestimates her opponent !
When she plays Anna Lena, she said that she was expected a tought opponent because of Anne Lena results !
Mary est l'une des joueuses qui suit le plus l'actualité j'ai l'impression ! Elle sait toujours ce qu'elle a fait l'année passée, contre qui elle a perdu, gagné, quelles joueuses sont en forme et ce qu'elles ont fait dans les semaines précédentes (à peu près) !
Moreover, Peng has played and won in two sets (!!!) against Dementieva, and now Kim, the big favorite for the event ! It's sure that Mary won't underestimate Peng, and she will expect a really strong opponent !
Peng hits the ball really strong, but we see in Rome that Shuai was not as powerful as Mary, and when Mary hit a BIG stroke, peng wans't able to put the ball in the court, it was just too much from mary !
But Shuai has involved a lot for sure !
Mary is clearly the favorite and no doubt that the tournament wanna see Mary on the "winner list" because for such a tournament, it would be really a pity to have a Peng / Sugiyama-Morigami final and Peng or Morigami or Sugiyama as a winner !
So, pretty sure that everyone in SDiego will hope Mary to win :drool:
Go Girl, stay focus, it will be an hard match, you're the fav, but you'll have to play ur best to win !
And u really can win, GO GO GO :bounce:

I saw the Mary's match yesterday! She played great! Go girl! You can do it!
Aug 6th, 2005, 10:01 AM
ooouuuhhhh, I was right !!
I had the feeling that Peng was going to be a problem for Kim !!!
I like Peng too but Mary is for sure the number 1:bounce:
keEp concentrate and watch out Mary, in Roma it wasn't easy so, let's go Mary you can do it !!
I vote for a japanese/french final !!! LOL :lol:

This is just fantastic, I was convinced it would be Mary vs Kim but I mean this was the best thing that could happend. Mary has beaten Peng already this year so she know how to play against Peng. The best thing is that they will show MAry on tv this night, I'm soo happy. Good luck Mary.

peng's footwork is not the best. and she had some trouble in her running forehand before. her backhand is pretty good, i love her backhand.
mary is more powerful, and she could mix some moonball to disturb peng's two-fisted play. chinese players won't give up easily, mary needs to be focus. good luck mary!!!

I really believe that Mary will win the match against Peng today! There is no doubt about it because she really is in good shape. Of course, you never should be to sure about a win but Mary is back with her greatest tennis ever and this tournament will only be the beginning of a completely new Pierce era. Keep supporting her!

“I think she has a great future ahead of her. She’s been the best player I’ve played in a long time. I think she can definitely become top three.”
said Kim !
It will be hard for Mary :eek:
Go Mary, show Kim that you are even better :drool:
