It looks like Kim can't lose this week..... even she isn't playing her best tennis..... and because she's leading 4-0 I say Kim.....but not sure about that..... hope it will be at least a good match ! :)

:fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: Maria doesn't have enough talent to beat Kim.Henin.Momo.Serena at their best.

we just have to leave she to keep living in her lala land...where she'll always see herself as the best and the other players jealous of her...!
she can make money on media..let the tennis for people who really are tenis players!

The crowd has been luke-warm at best to Maria it seems to me. Maria has been really playing well. She is primed to win, for sure. It'll be 3 sets if she does, straight sets if she doesn't. :)

And you know why ? it's because she has no foot speed to hit balls on the run. I like Maria when she on mute and playing her game. it's hit the ball as hard as you can and maria balls stay in court more then not I like her game just not her foot speed. I say she can upset kim tommorow if her game is on but I have too go with Kim on this one.

it's not strange and it's not surprising. kim's game forces errors out of opponents. she brings so many balls back, her opponents have to hit more shots to try and win a point. when you get fustrated with shots that should be winners coming back at you, you commit unforced errors

Me thinks Kimmie in 3.
Kim hasn't been playing her best all week, but she is winning and her movement is solid. Maria has been pretty solid all week and has been serving well.
Kim has never won San Diego, that's a big intangible.
This is Maria's best shot on Kim outside of a grass court. But I think Kim will be just to solid for Maria, Kim will get back a lot of her shots.

I predict Maria will continue to struggle against "top players". Kim is just too fast, and plays defense just about better than anyone.

Maria can't overpower Kim or outwit her. She can't pressure her groundstrokes with great net play. She can't pressure Kim's groundstrokes with superior movement.
Kim wins period.

I'm sure glad thay actually have to play the match!

Why is Kim complaining about being tired? I'm tired of her beating Pova!

Maybe Kim should come out with her theighs wrapped from knee to hip. It certainly helped Mary.

Maybe Kim should play left handed? That definitely helped Patty.

Maybe Kim should do both and smash rackets every other game on her serve. That ferocity would impress Pova!

Maybe Kim should do all three and the splits in those games where she doesn't smash a racket, Pova will give up!

Maybe if Kim does all four of those things and offers to buy Pova's dog after the first set, Pova will lose focus!

Maybe if Pova hit some power shots, shrieks at 120 decibels, shouts defiantly,gestures fiercely, dances wildly at the baseline and wins!!!

That would be sweet.

Kim talks about wanting a rest, back pain, and not being at her best but she just keeps winning... And her slumps in a match recently are not long, has been pulling herself out and taking back control. The way to beat Maria is to take her out of her game, Schnyder made a valiant try and I think Kim will do much better. She has all the tools to frustrate Maria. Kim holds up the trophy.

Not your most prudent wager, IMO. Can you back out of it?

Tomorrow, opinions don't matter! By the end of the day Kim will get her "rest" and time to think about what went wrong!

Actually 3000, and I wouldn't go back for the world. :) Kim is the better player, and will stretch her H2H lead to 5-0 tomorrow :)

I hope Maria can win this one. This would give her so much confidence going into the U.S. Open. She needs this, and she needs to know that she can beat one of the top players. She's been close, and she knows she has the game to push all the top three and that a point here and there and she could have won. Hopefully she comes out with her A game and plays well. It's been a while since I've seen her play up to her level in a big match.

I will go with 3 set victory for Kim. Maria has played a really good match against Patty that's why she will be a tough opponent for Kim. I won't be surprised if she wins the first set easily. Of course, I hope Kim will win in 2 ;)

All the evidence says that Kim is really worried. Kim usually has an excuse ready when she plays someone who may beat her. This time she has gone overboard!!!

Kim is tired.
Kim has a sore back.
Kim muscles are sore - all over!
Kim gave her dog away.

She probably has more issues but she certainly has stated enough of them for Pova to take her out. So, in just over 4 hours ...

That is not evidence, Kim talks like that often then shows up in the zone and wins. The pressure is on Maria being 0-4 against Kim... ;)

GoClijsters
Aug 6th, 2006, 08:13 PM
Kim will win. She has the game that can beat Masha.
Maria doesn't have a B plan. When she gets on court she tries to make the court empty hit the bal as hard as she can and she usually gets the point. But now, she's going to do a lot more then that. Kim will bring a lot of balls back, she must make the points like 2 or 3 times.
Okay, i have to credit Carl Maes for this explanation. :lol:

kim is favorite but ... I say maria because of her serve

Maria had a 78% first serve percentage and was still tested by Schnyder, match hinged on two breaks... But in her two prior matches Maria was at 69 and 71% and was as low as 57% in her first match. If Maria serves like she did yesterday it could be a very tight match but there is a real chance she will not. In 05 & 06 Maria is 4-4 in finals and beat only one top 5 player in a final, Davenport and on carpet. Kim is 10-1 in finals over the same time and has a won 24 straight matches on hard courts. Clear advantage Clijsters...

Tennisaddict

It's true that Maria's serve has been amazing this tournament and her groundstrokes on both sides are soaring :eek:. But, that's still not enough against Clijsters. I haven't seen Clijsters play, but she must be playing well to reach the final plus her hard court record speaks for itself.

I think that Maria will have to follow up her flat groundstrokes to the net and finish the point at net, so Kim's legs will be taken away from her. Since Maria is still an incompetent volleyer though, that won't happen. So it will be the same old, same old Kim and Maria engaging in lots of rallies, Kim wil mix it up a lot bring back thousand balls and Maria eventually will get frustrated and over and or mishit. In short Kim wins. It should be an entertaining match though.
