Switch Srebotnik/Schnyder and I think this as well.

It just seems like too many upsets to be true. :scared: Radwanska, Azarenka, Safina...crazy stuff. But I hope those three happen.

Here are my picks:

Safina beats Sharapova - I think Safina is on hot form on clay this season, why Sharapova has struggled with Rodina and Mattek :shrug:
Zvonareva beats Dementieva - this is a tough one. I think Zvonareva and Dementieva are both having good years, but think Zvonareva will take this in three
Azarenka beats Kuznetsova - Azarenka also on hot form, think she can take out a topsy-turvy Kuznetsova
Kvitova beats Kanepi - Intersesting that these two names are in the fourth round and one will be a quarter finalist. I think it could go either way, but think that Kvitova will take it.
Pennetta beats Suarez Navarro - think Pennetta's experience will take her to the quarters for the first time!
Jankovic beats Radwanska - dont think I can smell an upset here.
Srebotnik beats Schnyder - if Patty hasnt got a foot injury it could be different
Ivanovic beats Cvetovska - think this one is a certainity, but then so far at Roland Garros..........!

joćo.

A surprising number of headcases made in into the 4th round, which could make for some crazy scorelines.

Shouldn't you be happy? :lol:

Also, since you're one of the most statistically informed posters around and your match predictions seem to be right most of the time, what do you REALLY think Maria's chances are against Dinara and what would Maria have to do to come out with a win?

Thanks for the vote in confidence. I guess I'm happy but I just find Elena seems to lose when the general consensus is when she's the favorite against a top notch player. :lol:

I think Maria has a good chance against Dinara. I have much respect for her and her ability--I wouldn't be surprised if her career ended being better than Venus' if she plays long enough. As it stands, Dinara is better on clay and has looked better from Berlin up to this Paris 4R. I think Dinara will have belief to win, but unless Dinara comes out flat against Maria/'Mazing Masha comes out to play, Dinara should win. EDIT: This is one of the few times I think a match is more in the hands of Maria's opponent instead of Maria herself. If Maria gets past Dinara, it's ALL in Maria's hands.

Both of Safina's wins over Maria are 75 in the third. This won't be an easy match. If Maria wins the first set, she wins the match even if it goes three. It's all about the first set with Maria.

No problem. Yeah, I understand. :lol:

Thanks for that. I'm even more scared now. If that's even possible. :lol: But I kinda agree.

But don't you think that Maria is so mentally tough that it's just so hard to see her lose in the 4th round and that she just won't let herself lose especially after all her preparation for the French Open these last few months and how much she's been saying that she wants to win this year? That's why I still think Maria can pull this out.

wow! relax dude!! even if she does lose its not the end of the world! its just a tennis match!! but think of it this way, there's nothing you can do other than have faith in maria, just believe in her and believe that she'll do her best, and if she wins she wins, if not, oh well its onto the grass... there's no use worrying, you're only causing yourself stress! im sure you're worrying about this match alot more than maria is!

I probably am. :lol: But you're right, I gotta believe and stay positive. And if she does lose, well... it's onto the grass. Grass is better anyway, SCREW CLAY and Roland Garros. :lol:

But yeah, I still really want her to do well, just like every tennis fan wants for their favorite player, and I just couldn't stand it if Ana or Jelena became World No. 1, a position that they clearly don't deserve yet.

Lately, however, hasn't been all about losing the first set with Safina (i.e. against Henin and Serena)?

Safina d. Sharpy
Zvonareva d. Dementieva
Azarenka d. Kuznetsova
Kanepi d. Kvitova
Pennetta d. Suarez Navarro
Jankovic d. Radwanska
Srebotnik d. Schnyder
Ivanovic d. Cetkovska

Maybe Kuznetsova or Dementieva can pull off a win. Maybe. And perhaps Safina will implode and Shriekapova will advance... :yawn:
