I'd love to see Ivanovic & the Williams-sisters in the semis!

And maybe Sharapova...

I guess I think:

Safina over Azarenka
Venus Williams over Sharapova
Elena Dementieva over Jankovic
Kuznetsova over Serena Williams

Safina over Venus Williams
Kuznetsova over Elena Dementieva

Safina over Kuznetsova.

Caroline is injured so unless she becomes 100% fit again, I'd be surprised to see her make it past R4. Hell, R3 might be diffult if it's against a determined Cornet...

But beating Jankovic and Dementieva with that rib injury? Not gonna happen.

It doesn't matter, Maria is a champion and she can do a lot with her will just alone. I do think she can suprise anyone atm, nobody is expecting her to win, same goes for serena or venus, so I think those 3 can do much damage.

No I think Venus will actually beat safina. Safina is having so many easy matches, so she won't have a real test before meeting Venus, and Venus will most likely suprise her and wrap her in.

Althought first Venus needs to reach the semis though :scared:

Li and Venus Williams are currently at the same level as Maria, not all too brilliant tennis. But Maria is playing differently on clay, she's playing smarter. SO I wouldn't be so sure about it.

I called you a cow? :confused: Because if anything, I was understating my feelings towards you as a poster.
And thanks for adjusting it. :) And no I donŽt know you personally, I have just read a number of your posts and summed up an opinion about you from them. (And please do not say you have seen a number of MariajoŽs matches and summed up an opinion from that, because she is certainly not a cow).

This argument seems rather juvenile though, so IŽll stop now.

You must be joking. Did you even see the match that Venus and Safarova played earlier today? Venus had a +19 ratio with 41 winners and 22 UEs. Maria only +8 with 11 LESS winners than Venus. Not to mention Venus served 10 aces with only ONE DF. Maria had 7 aces with 6 DF's.

And there is also one thing that the statitics can't show. The fight and will Venus had on the court after being down a match point. She showed she wants the title. She could have very well easily folded the match. But she pulled herself together against a very lethal Lucie Safarova.

Inger67

Well perhaps they are not at the same level atm, which I think they aren't, but stats here means nothing, I mean they are playing against DIFFERENT players, Sharapova an unseeded player won against a seeded player and a good clay player, and Venus the former FO finalist and the 3rd seed here won a match against Safarova, I mean c'mon of course you expect Venus to have good stats:o.

U an idiot, you can't compare Safavora and Petrova, petrova is clearly better, she won many titles on clay, what about Safarova, and she had Mp against Vee. And you can't talk about fight, Sharapova ranked 102 beat Petrova who is 11 and we all know how hard she fought .SHe was down 2/4 15/40 in the decider.

Safarova played a hell of a lot better than Petrova.

Thank you. And not to mention Petrova's year hasn't been up to the standard of an "11th seed" anyhow. She hasn't beaten any top 10 player this year and is 1-5 against top 20 players.

At this point it is foolish for someone to say that Venus = Maria.

It sounds nice on paper but the reality was that it really wasnt. Unlike the Venus Safarova match, both players played very good tennis at the same time. With Maria Petrova it was like one played one good point, the other played a good point next etc. The level was low...very low.

No I'm not an idiot, and obviously "u" are if you think Petrova would've beaten Lucie Safarova yesterday. Perhaps Maria was down 2-4, but she then pulled back and was level at 4-4. She never faced any match points or Nadia even being one game away from winning the match. Venus had to dig dip and hit winners to fight off the match point and Lucie from breaking her that entire game. at 4-5 0-30. And please, why do you say Sharapova, ranked "102", you know very well that # does not reflect her talent.

Petrova played really wellat the end and her serve was very effective, Im sure she could have beat Vee, anyway when Safarova can take u out, anyone can.
