what a great match-up :inlove:
we know for sure that in this match, there won't be many long points as both players will try to end the point with an outright winner that may turn out to be an UE :scared:

Hard-hitting match! :D

Despite her inexperience on green clay courts, I say Na Li in 2, because she can do many more things than Kiki with her shots.

I voted for Li, but I'm always for Karolina!
Karolina will dictate rallies, it depends on how many UE she'll have!

:drool: some really amazing winners. Karolina hits with flairsome power while Li is more mechanical i think. Karolina is gonna show Li who's the real ball basher of the Wta tour is ;) :devil: :p which will probably lead to her downfall :sad: but should be a good match. I think Karolina actually has enough confidence to challenge for this match now :eek:

DaniKim you are right ... I forgot it will be Na Li's green clay debut ... I hope she can adjust to the surface

sprem has had 3 matches to adjust to this surface while li has never ever played on it before...if karolina has a good serving day she can definitely make the upset :drool:

Li's gonna win despite the inexperience on the surface. Sprem has won a few matches in a row, but they've been far from easy and haven't been against players that are even close to Li's level.

That said, it's not such a bad matchup for Karolina. She can perform well against other super agressive error-prone players. I can see Karolina making the sets close, but I dont believe she's gonna be able to win it.

Good luck though. :hearts: AJMO K-LINA!

(Oh and I voted Sprem... just because)

Li Na is the worst player in the top 100. Sprem 6-3 6-2, anything more is a tank by Sprem.

Two easy sets for Li Na

Li Na should win this in the full 3 sets. I really think that she`ll have a very hard match with it being on green clay.

If it goes three sets this match could go on for 6 hours, without either slugger making an excursion to the net. :p

I expect in-form Na to park her ass on the base-line and get this done in straight sets.

Has there ever been a match when a player had 100 or more UFEs? If this match goes three sets, it's possible that one or the other may get a chance to come near or reach that plateau. Like both players, though. Just wish they had more discipline in their respective games.

I think that the matches that Karolina won in this tournament may have given some confidence that is what makes her game work well. It has been said that the other players she beat weren´t so good as Na Li but i think if Karolina has the confidence she also can play against the best players. I think it´s too early to say that she has her confidence back but it would be really good if she has.
i´m predicting that Li will win in a tight first set, and after that karolina will lose her patience and play a worse second set.
My prediction 7-5/6-2.

with emphasis on "some". mayn more UE's, i presume.
