Much closer than I predicted, but a win is a win

8 Aces, including a few 2nd serve aces :hearts:

Next up Sania Mirza :scared:

A little close but yeah a wins a win. Sania should be a good match. Marina, being match fit, should win in two tight sets. :)

Marina will certainly be going into that match as an underdog, but then again she beat Tax Garbin in Paris when she was pretty heavily favoured to lose....

My prediction - Marina wins 4-6 6-4 6-4

Sania is coming back from a long injury layoff. Hard to say what kind of form she will return in. Marina could win quite easily.

I like Sania a lot so I will be hoping that she at least shows she is fit and ready to compete well at Wimbledon. But if Marina beats her in a competitive match I'm cool with that. I like Marina too and it is no disgrace losing to Marina in her current form.

Steph :sad: Nice scoreline though, against a player that seems much more used to and better on grass.

Steph :( Expected result though, she did well to make it as close as she did.

I'll be surprised if Erakovic doesn't beat Mirza given the circumstances.

i was there watching this match. it was by far the best match i have seen steph play and only becuase erakovic managed to make play some vital shots when she needed them did she win - very close game though

Go Marina! If she can beat Sania, you'd have to fancy her chances of a fairly deep run in this tournament. Her section isn't that strong IMO.

I agree, heck the entire tournament is pretty weak! Sania Mirza could definately win this title, and Marina will be one of her biggest obstacles.
