What do you think? I'd say Mara in 2 but I have always wondered how Mara could play on clay with her game. I think that nobody knows how to play against her. Her game is really strange and amazing.

Mara in 2.

Tamarine can barely hold good court positioning on this surface. As long as there's no major wobbles from the Italian, ie the serve falls apart, really should be home and dry here:)

Mara, should be pretty comfortable.

Err.......there were alot of jokes about Pratt's lack of skill on clay in one or two other threads and indeed she ain't great on clay, although she did beat Lepchenko today. But compared to Tamarine on clay, Pratt is like Henin.

Quite simply Tanasugarn is easily the worst claycourter in the top 100. It has been more than 4 years since Tamarine last won a match on clay. In that time she has lost 15. Last year she lost on clay 6-1 6-4 to Teodora Mircic. Haven't heard of Mircic? Maybe that's because she was ranked 556 at the time.

I should add Tamarine is a great grasscourter. I'm sure she is already looking ahead to Wimbledon to help get her through the clay season.

i dont like santangelo's game at all, but it will be effective enough for her to win in 2

I never understood how a decent player like Tansugarn could be so awful on a surface, but who knows, she prob. has a better chance on green clay.

If Mara loses more than 5 games I will personally go to Charleston and smack her.

The problem is she might be tired with all these singles and doubles matches!
But I bet for a 6-2 / 6-1 :cool:

She shouldn't have played her double today. That's not normal

Green Clay is faster than Red one. Tammy is getting used to it so she could make some noise tonight.

should be Mara in 2...

Tammy won on clay... last time in March 2003... def. Perry 7-6, 6-2
its 4 years ago :sad: won on clay less than 10 matchs (in 10 years on WTA)
and loss nearly 40...
