Well after seeing Monika play with such composure and consistency lately I wouldn't be suprised if she won a set...a whole match might be to far.

Marion will *hopefully* make a lot of errors which will favor Monika because she is consistent when in defense, keeps the ball deep no matter what position she is in and can hit Marion around and produce some surprising and hard hit winners. I hope I get to see her on T.V that's all.

if marion doesn't show up a stinking hot mess she'll win easily, but remember her first matches last year, she raped Knapp 60 61 and then lost to Schiavone :/

Really tough draw for Monika. I would be surprised if she took it two 3 sets but I'm thinking some like 61 75 :shrug:

Split decision, but it's going to a third set.

There is still a big gap between Marion and Monica. So Marion in 2, even Surface doesn't suit her.

If Marion has no head injury, she will win in 2.

Marion's strokes will overpower Monika. If she can get marion moving, she could give her a hard time. Still Marion should win quite easily - 6-2 6-2

LOL! You stole "head injury" from me :p

Yeah, Marion should win this match easily if she can get it together.

A $25K win and a close match against Jelena Dokic and suddenly she is ready to take sets or even beat Top20 players? I don't think so.

Bartoli 61 61

That's not how it works. :lol: The more you move Marion around the more you get moved around by her. ;) You have to complete outsmart and outhit her to win.

Monika is far below Marion's league. Marion 6-2 6-0 if she has rust.

Wejnert likes the pace and Bartoli also hits the ball flat like Dokic does, I think she will give Bartoli loads of trouble with the way she plays, I know the AO playoff and this tournament is a huggggge difference but she the gamestyle that could really make Bartoli feel uncomfortable, but if Bartoli plays good she should win in straights with one set i'll say going 7-5.

I am desperatly hoping that Monika can impress some people here with this match, because I know that she is capable of making it a good match, taking a set and if Marion is playing shit...winning.

She can handle how hard Marion hits it, I think what might trouble her is how early Marion takes the ball. She absorbes the pace of ball really well and consistently gets it back deep, she doesn't make stupid mistakes (except of return) and she can hit amazing down the line winners. Should be a good match.(HOPEFULLY, don't disappoint me Monika :()

The only possible hope for Wejnert is that this is Marion's first match in ages and she's so unpredictable so anything could happen. Plus Marion has not played well in Australia the last two years.

Marion should win comfortably but I wouldn't be surprised if it gets ugly.

Marion should and probably will win in straight sets.

But I'm suprised at some of the responses on this thread. Some people are making out as if Marion is a solid and consistant player that breezes through her oppening rounds of every event she plays, which is not always the case. We all know how unpredictable she is and prone to "injury" she can be ;)
