I hope Maria but she did not look good at all against Elena. Clijsters will be a lot fresher after her layoff but hopefully Maria can step it up.

I hope Clijsters can make this group interesting by beating Sharapova.

Kimmy will run down a lot of balls and frustrate exhausted Maria. Should the 1st set be tight and long I see Kim winning the match in two, otherwise in three.

If Kim was in top form I'd pick her, but since she's coming off injury Maria in straights.

i hope it's kim :yeah: but my gut is telling me that maria will win in 3 sets since she's the one on form, but hey kim is in form as well 2 since she won hasselt. i'm going 2 say maria 2 win but i hope i'am wrong :)

good luck kimmie & plz give it your absolute best :D

I prefer Maria to Kim but I have a feeling Kim may take this. She won't serve 16 double faults and she has no pressure on her at all. Maria hates being made to run and that's what Kim will make her do.

It will all depend on the service of both players. I can't wait to see the match! I'd love Kim to win but if this dream can become reality ...
Kim's matches against Zvonareva and Kanepi in Hasselt should have helped her to gain her level.
Do you all remember 2005 where Kim made this brilliant comeback? After she played a few matches in Antwerp she totally kicked some ass in Indian Wells and Miami. I think her level will be better then in Hasselt. She played good there but she can play better. I'm curious what tonight is going to bring.
But i've voted for Maria, please let me be wrong.

I think Maria will want to win every match as she is so competitive.

She has a better chance to beat Svetlana than Kim, she knows this so I would've thought it would be other way round if anything.

Kim will always be difficult for Maria to beat. Their head to head doesn't lie; the only meeting that Maria one was very close and she served spectacularly, not to mention Kim had a lower back strain so couldn't move her best. She seems to be moving very well since she's come back. That is what will undo Maria. What will undo Kim is if her forehand goes off, as it has been erratic as usual:rolleyes:

They will both need to get plenty of first serves in to win :)

Maria will raise her level. She needs to serve well. Her confidence is still above average to high when going for her shots. If Maria has her serve to rely on, she wins this.

Kim does not have a better serve than Maria.

She's beaten Maria before because of her movement. I think that will happen again but Maria will have more service winners.

Clijsters in straight sets. Clijsters knows how to beat Sharapova, she did it all of last year. Sharapova just got lucky in San Diego and barely beat Clijsters 7-5, 7-5.

Clijsters should put Sharapova away easily this time.:)

Cheo are you even familiar with Maria's game? these posts from you. Most of the time, you never have enough belief in Maria. You a lot of times pick her opponent. :tape:

Bloody spot on! :worship:

I reckon Kuzzie in three.

I have also a bad feeling that Sveta will win that match. I think Sveta will win in 3 sets.

At least I gave her more chance to beat Sveta than she had to beat Maria. Because Maria is playing really well at the moment, so it wasn't such a big surprise that she defeated Kim. And in the match against Elena, Sveta was making a lot of UE's. So, she can also do that in her match against Kim.

At least I hope it wil be a nice and good match.
But as a Kimfan I hope Kim will win ofcourse ;) :D

Than both Kim and Sveta won 1 match .... and is the last match decided.
