Who will win? JJ won their last meeting in 2010 Fed Cup last Feb but Alisa won their last tour meeting last year in Moscow.

Hopefully Jelena!

But Alisa is starting to get really good, So going to be a tough one no matter what.

Who will win? Alisa won their last meeting in Canada I think.
Their most recent meeting was in Fed Cup this year, which JJ won. :)

Was that counted in their H2H?

Actually their last match was in Fed Cup few weeks ago. It was a great match and Jelena won helped by the crowd. Before that, last year in Moscow Alisa completely trashed JJ. Dunno what to expect here, I'd say Kleybanova is the favourite, but it will depend a lot on which JJ shows up.

I dont know if Alisa has enough gas in the tank after these long 3 setters.
But she always matches up well with Jelena.
Alisa has more power and better angles of shots

This.
As much as I love JJ, I couldn't resist to imagine JJ would actually get crushed by Alisa.:o

Kleybs in 3 i think.

Hopefully the day off will let her return to full strength.

Someone please tell Jelena that would be a Fed Cup match.

Going for the Serb killer in 3 sets. Probably a couple of tiebreaks thrown in, seeing as both women thrive on breaking serve.

Alisa in 3 long sets.

I think JJ will wear Alisa down.

50-50 for me i don't know
but it's time for alisa breakthrough

head says Alisa, heart says JJ. Gotta remember, Kleybs is coming off some good wins and her first title, while poor little JaJa has pretty much sucked for a while now, either way i think its gonna be 3 long and ugly sets unless Alisa has been scoffing cheesburgers in celebration since she beat Suarez-Navarro...

Mar 17th, 2010, 03:08 PM
hopefully Lady JaJa

As long as Alisa keeps up her fluid intake,and has enough time to recover from her last match I think she will scone the JJ

Tricky one for Jankovic, Kleybanova is on a roll and I wouldn't be surprised if she wins. Three sets very likely here...

Tought to call but I give a slight edge to Alisa

Kleybanova has no business losing to Jankovic in her current state.

The last obstacle on Jankovic's road to the title but also the biggest one. I hope and think JJ will survive her collision with the little elephant.

There's no stopping Helena now.
Kleybanova has had several breakout performances this year, but I feel this tournament ends for her here.

Was Jelena just complaining in the first game of the match? She's such a queen :o

Yesterday while Mattek-Sands/Yan vs Vives/MJMS match was
in progress Janko was practicing serve at the practice court.

It wasn't going all to well :lol:

And I do hope Sam today will play like Alisa now :lol: So erratic..

fantic
Mar 18th, 2010, 08:24 PM
what is the UE record? I think Alisa might break it...

goldenlox
Mar 18th, 2010, 08:43 PM
Alisa had a chance to go up 52 in set 2, but I think she is exhausted and cant win this.
