Maria in three. Alona is very solid and consistent, she will cause big troubles for Maria.
But as Maria said today her shoulder isn't bothering her and she's feeling great so I think she should survive this one.

probably a three setter, maria had trouble with her last year on clay and on hardcourts, so will be tough for mash... but i think she'll come through, if she can keep the mini brain farts under control!

it should be the most interesting match of all week.

I think Maria will win, but I'm cheering for Alona.

Maria took plenty of time coming back, after she saw she couldn't make the AO.
I expect her to win in 2

Is it just me that Maria would tank this match so she won't be over-tired in RG?
Alona in 3, 6-2 1-6 6-3

Maria's form this week has been very encouraging and it does look like she on her way back. But Alona has been playing at a very high level these last couple of weeks and I think it is too early in Maria's comeback to expect her to beat someone playing that well. Beating an out of form Tathiana Garbin and Darya Kustova is one thing. Beating a very in-form Alona Bondarenko is something else entirely.

Alona is a very attractive young lady.

If she keeps her body in good shape, and starts winning some high level matches, maybe even a grand slam or two, she could start getting more of those lucrative contracts for modeling like the ones which bring in 25 million a year for Maria.

I think Maria's killer instincts will take over. Maria in 2 sets.

I want Masha to lose this. She'll be fresher for another couple of matches in RG and then grass :devil:

Wisdom here from a dedicated follower of the latest appointee to promote gender equality for the UNESCO/WTA partnership. I hope the one with much more raw sex appeal wins, go Alona! (and I am not as some dickbrain posted earlier, a Maria hater just because I didn't vote for her)

Hoping for Maria in two but if she does win it will most likely be in three sets...

Alona in 3 even if I would appreciate it if Masha would take the title

Alona won't be blown off the court cause she knows how to get the "cow" slipping ;)

Poor Maria. She never has had raw sex appeal, even as a teenager---hers could be better described as "nicely-done". But she has her sort of raw moments.

Alona---raw, indeed.

Alona looked a little too raw last summer:

Looking more "well done", this week.

maria!!, lol at people saying maria isn't ready to beat bondarenko yet.. Bondarenko lost 1 and 0 to Nicole this year!:help:

I think some of you forgotten that this is Clay and not hard court. Clay suits Alona alot better than Maria. Yes Alona has lost to Maria on Clay but thats the green shit. This time its on Euro red clay and Alona is in hot form in Madrid.

So Alona at least 3 sets because Maria is a good fighter

If Alona was still playing on the level she was playing against Vaidisova there is every chance Sharapova would, even now, be able to double bagel her. But this is a different Alona Bondarenko. Form can sometimes turn around very quickly in tennis and while a few weeks ago Alona was playing absolutely atrociously, now she is playing some of the very best tennis of her career. Big difference.

it'll be interesting to see how Alona handles the pressure of being the favorite. Based on form obviously Alona should win but Sharapova has zero pressure and can play free tennis while Alona will be tense w/ the expectation of winning the match.
I say Sharapova plays a horror match at some point in her first few tournaments back but it won't be against Alona. Sharapova 26 75 64

I voted Alona in 3, but Maria's smackdown today really makes me think she has a real chance of winning this. And if she DOES win this, I think she has a decent chance of winning the whole tournament. Hopefully she can pull it off :inlove:
