I think Na in 3 ;)

Na gets little confused with players like Schnyder. I remember last year Na was playing against Hingis in Melbourne 1/8 final..and she was in cruise control ....making Hingis to run all over the court ..and all of the sudden Hingis won in 3... and the third set was 6:0..so i will go with Patty.

Hmm I'll go with Na in 3, but this could go either way...

I remember their match in Berlin well. Patty had no right losing that match as she was on cruise control for most of it....I still don't understand how she managed to some how end up losing it :o

11-0 :eek:

i think if Na Li comes out firing Patty will struggle to contain her (especially if plays defensively). If Patty is serving well and returns cleverly then i think she'll win. the H2H really should be 3-0 given the way Patty choked massively in Berlin (although i guess it could just as easily be 3-0 to Li considering how close the other two were)

H2H Schnyder leads 2-1

2006 Berlin (Clay) N. Li 2-6 7-6(3) 7-6(1)


Patty in three. I'm feeling this week.

Patty in 3 sets..

Martina Hingis , Schnyder, Bammer, those players with their game style can cause a lot of trouble to Li Na as Li is chasing for winnings on almost every point while those three have really good defence, I think Peer might also be one of them.
But considering Li Na defeated Bammer in the first round which was yet her first come back show, I reckon she has some chance of overcoming Schnyder and make a move forward to the final.
So I'd like to vote for Li Na as I personally prefer her and would like her to win the match and if possible meet Peer in the final. That would be another very intersting match to watch.

Li's never made a TIII or above final. Nothing's changing this week, but SOON. :)

I think she won her first title in Guangzhou, and that was a Tier 3

Na Li in 2.

Jan 3rd, 2008, 12:53 PM
Very tough match to decide, I reckon Na will win in 3 sets. shes just on fire in her last 3 matches :D

Jan 3rd, 2008, 01:23 PM
na will do well in 2sets!

Jan 3rd, 2008, 01:28 PM
I'm going for Schnyder in this one, in 3 sets.

Ya I am also going with Schnyder in three - she looks like she is on a bit of a roll right now.

Jan 3rd, 2008, 04:59 PM
Schnyder like 7-5,6-4.

Jan 3rd, 2008, 05:05 PM
I thought she would lose Nicole in straights, so Na in 3 I guess. :shrug: :lol: Won't be surprised if it is Patty 7-6 6-3 though.
