Since we have not seen how either are playing, we don't know who's playing better and we don't know if either even played well or their opponents just played bad :shrug:

Anywho, I hope lena can win it, i think she will find a way to win in 3 ;)

I have a feeling Kirilenko will keep on rolling. Elena's numbers didn't look very impressive today.

Dementieva in two. Kirilenko can't hurt her unless Lena makes 50 UEs.

I know Lena is the Queen of Three-Setters, but I have this feeling if the QF does reach three sets, it's in Kirilenko's favor. I think Lena needs to win the match in straight sets. :)

I'd say Elena in 2, in luck terms Elena is a master and Maria is already running out

It might not be luck that is keeping Maria in the tournament. :p

Elena will probably win but I'm just happy to see Maria on US tv against. :hearts:

Yeap, I'm sure she's playing great and she might even win but to say that Maria will win her third match in a row it's to be too confident IMO ;)

On paper, Lena D.

Sadly, apparently Lena doesn't read the papers, so who knows.

Lena in straights! She could really use a SF or F here at a Tier I to boost her confidence. We all know you're not over the hill yet, LeLe. Keep banging them groundies. :drool:

What better way to make it to her second semi-finals since Beijing than another tough 3 set victory for Makiri over Elena. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that it will happen! Good luck Makiri!

I would hate to call it as usual, its never that easy with Lena D, the good thing is if Lena D does lose it will be to a perfectly nice player and one we can look at without spewing up, so If Lena does bum out at this stage I shant be overly upset.

Maria K is playing pretty well at the moment so could be tricky, however I watched Maria K live at Eastbourne and obvioulsy the 'view' was plenty nice enough but the tennis was probably THE most crap I had seen in years, was sleep inducing tedium, full of piss poor shots, zero power, bad serves and looked like a game down the local courts. I ams sure Masha K has improved a lot from thjat stage though, I hope she has anyways, so Lena better look out.

As For the Big Golden One, well, she played a pretty smart match by her standards yesterday, she was doing her 'Binary' serving of course, all or fuck all, DF or a good serve and nothing in between, but the words "Tactics" came up in her interview and thats unsuual and a good sign, Lena will simply not tire no matter how long the match goes on for, shes got 10 times the power of Masha K physcically and is more experienced etc, if Lena is not making shitloads of UES she really oughta win this, even if the serve aint so good there should be opportunites to break, she resolutely refused to let Bartoli hold yesterday..

All in all a bit of a toss up with Lena being the slight favourite I would say 60 40 to Lena Ds favour I reckon.

should be a good match however, if only for the eyes!
