Pick a winner :)

Martina in three.

Martina in 3. Vera will start badly...then bagel Hingis in the 2nd set with amazing play...and then completely crumble.

If Bepa plays like she did in her first tournament, she'll have no problem with Martina :eek: But I think Martina will wear her out eventually, though I'm not outruling a Vera win. But if Vera does win, it'll be in two. I don't see her winning in 3 against Hingis :o

sounds like everyone is really positive about this.
should be an intresting test for both player.
Hingis will be tested if she can handle power.
Zwonerva will be tested constency and concentration patience??

Vera in 3. Hingis is yet to prove anything this year. I hope she does well in her comeback but I still have my doubts. Her best chance will be a Vera meltdown which is probably a 50-50 proposition.

:worship: Marti :worship: in two.

I have to agree 100%
Martina in two. The queen is back.

Jan 13th, 2006, 03:28 AM

Martina in 3 :)

When Vera starts crying, Chucky's grin will be blinding. :devil:

Gotta pick the Chuckster in 3. ;)

ohhh man.. what a match.
it better be on the tele

Jan 13th, 2006, 04:13 AM
Hingis she'll get in vera's head by the first changeover

Jan 13th, 2006, 04:21 AM
What a first round match! :eek: :worship:

I think I'm gonna cheer for Hingis, though I'd be happy to see either of them win. My gut tells me Hingis will use her mental strength to beat Vera, who will undoubtedly crumble.

Good luck to both. :)

I'd say Martina will take this one in 2 sets, a close first set followed by a bagel second set as Zvonareva predictably crumbles. 6-4 6-0

go hingis
Jan 13th, 2006, 05:42 AM
Go Martina! in two

Jan 13th, 2006, 06:28 AM
Martina will beat Vera Z by playing mind games :hehehe:

Jan 13th, 2006, 06:32 AM

Jan 13th, 2006, 06:36 AM
if Flavia can beat her, Vera can also do this
she just needs to keep her mind together :o

Vera in 3

Jan 13th, 2006, 07:41 AM
Hingis def. Zvonareva 6-4, 5-7, 6-3

Jan 13th, 2006, 07:43 AM
I think Hingis will win it in 3 very tough sets

Jan 13th, 2006, 07:48 AM
I'd be surprise is Hingis wins this in 3 sets...
I think that Hingis could get this match in 2 sets, but if it goes to 3 sets, i think that it would favor Zvonareva more...

Jan 13th, 2006, 07:48 AM
Hingis :)

Zvonareva won't be able to hold her temper against a SMILING Hingis. :inlove:

Vera in three , she will lost first rnd cos crowwd will be on Hingis side

Then Vera just killed her!

Jan 13th, 2006, 08:03 AM
Hingis in 2

Interesting first match-up for Martina.

Vera can play and perform well and then can do something strange at tournaments and crash out in 1R to players she should beat.

She's kind of inform at the moment, what with Runner-Up in Auckland. Martina is half in form - she can beat Koukalova but can't beat Pennetta.

It really is anyone's guess!

Jan 13th, 2006, 08:24 AM
Hingis either needs to win in straight or win the 2nd and third set, if she won the first but not the 2nd, it's bye bye for martina.

Jan 13th, 2006, 08:39 AM
I honestly have no idea how this match will turn out, all I know is I hope Martina wins.

Jan 13th, 2006, 08:43 AM
I think Martina in two although I picked Martina in three.....they are both good players but Hingis is smarter and has better shot selection and she can definetly piss Bepa off and force her into self destruction.....we've seen it before and we will see it again.....Good luck to bothe may the best player on the day win.....However I would love to see a Hingis Pierce third round match up.....

Jan 13th, 2006, 08:47 AM
Unless Vera self-destructs Martina will have very hard time to win this.

Jan 13th, 2006, 09:00 AM
Would have been a no-brainer in favour of Vera if Vera was no so flaky. She has the 'technical' advantage, for sure. But it's scary...

Vera in 3.
