Hingis had a chance regardless of the outcome of this match! It's the finals I'm more worried about.

It would have been nice for Golovin and Hingis to go into the Doubles match knowing they would play each other tomorrow - I'm liking Golovin more and more, these days. Good luck in the upcoming tournaments, Tatiana!

Good on ya, Flavia!

How does this girl play? I've never seen her play before so I'm hoping she doesnt prove too much trouble for Martina.

I'm more worried about Flavia against Hingis than anyone Hingis might play in the finals.
It's likely that Patty will make the finals. Patty doesn't have the best record against other Swiss players. She's 7-7 lifetime against them.
I think Flavia can take Hingis out. It's probably going to be her only chance to "upset" her during her career.

I think flavia has more than one chance against martina.

We'll see, but i'm confident enough.

now marti has a chance to win her semi :)

i really don't get this attitude that Flavia is such an easy opponent compared to Tati. I'm a fan of both but look how each ended last year and it's clear to me at least that Flavia's a bigger danger at present than Tati.

Clearly the match depends on Martina's form but i will not surprised at all if Flavia gets the job done tomorrow.

I also think Flavia's going to be a very dangerous opponent for Martina. She's an aggressive baseliner with hard and flat groundstrokes (her backhand is particularly potent). I actually think Tatiana would have been an easier opponent for Martina; after all, Tatiana plays a very similar, tactic-based game as Martina but without her genius.

Flavia is no push over but she's not exactly dangerous, especially considering her record last year. But I'm sure tati will give Martina some pointers later today.

I'm so sad for tati, i thought she could win and meet martina in semis, but all my dreams are flying away, so, sad...

Tati :sad: Too bad, hopefully things will get better. Win the doubles with Martina. ;)

Congrats to Flavia on the win, but I hope Martina beats her. :devil:

Pennetta is the type Hingis don't wanna face early in her comeback matches. Flavia is fit and can hit the ball hard, a solid ground stroker. Martina can only win this match if she runs the Italian around like a yo-yo that forces Flavia to not hit her strokes.

I actually give this match for Pennetta to win or lose. Hingis is the underdog in every damn tournament she will play in this year. Pennetta will be a good gauge on how even a non-top 10 player can play these days. The field is definitely deeper now and this is Martina's first real test in her come back. She has nothing to lose, but everything to gain from this tournament.

Flavia is no push over but she's not exactly dangerous, especially considering her record last year.

:confused: err she's ranked at her highest ranking at 23 - that's 15 above her year end the previous year and one higher than Tati ;)

:bounce: Flavia! What a great way to start off a season! And now she has a chance to take on the Swiss Miss... I think it's true, this is her best shot at upsetting Martina: it's her first tournament after a long time off, no matter how hard she's trained she's going to feel a bit of fatigue, and it probably kinda showed in the second set vs. Nuria... Playing with someone you've been watching on TV while you were not yet a pro may pose a serious challenge for your nerves, though, so I believe Flavia will have to be very careful and aggressive from the start. She may not be the hardest hitter, but her strokes do have some punch, so I hope she plays a good match and doesn't leave outsmarted by Martina...

So Disrespectful
