Can't see Venus hitting through Dominika IF it goes to three sets. Her stamina is still ridiculously low. She was breathing heavily in the 2nd set changeover of their doubles match yesterday.

Venus has to win in two if she has any chance. Going with Dominika.

Venus always struggles on clay against these medium pushers and she already lost on a hard court in str8 sets to Cibulkova, therefore this might be a really hard one for Vee. But I hope she prevails, I want Domi to lose some points :devil:

VIKA?

I hope Domi:)

Tough one as I like Domi but hopefully Vee prevails. Vee will need to raise her level several notches though from the first two rounds or else Domi will eat up weak serving and passive play.

Might look tough but Venus will cruise to third round. 6-2, 6-1.

How has Cibulkova's play been this year in general and this year on clay?

depends on Venus.:o

she plays to win, it's hers.
if she chokes, allows the third round demons to back her off her game, she and the pretty little dress go packing! :sad:

I think Domi's level has gone down compared to last year's RG and I think Venus' level has gradually improved month by month.

Venus in two sets. But tricky ones.

Me likey!

But seriously, Dominika will give Vee a real tough test and she better come prepared for her.

Crush her, V.

I would have thought that most Venus fans would want her to lose this match. The last four times she has lost at this stage here, she has gone on to reach the Wimbledon final (three of four wins). The last two occasions she won her third round match (and went on to the qf), she lost in the 2nd round and third round at Wimbledon, to Sprem in 04 and Jankovic in 06.

Venus has got a track record to losing to this level of seed at RG at this stage, especially if they are reasonable on clay, so I would predict a three set win for Cibulkova.

I feel like if Dominika grabs one of the first 2 sets, the match is hers.

Venus's current form may keep her from doing this, however.

what fabo put makes perfect sense, i.e if domi taakes it to 3 sets she will win, but venus has been playing well enough to prevent domi taking the match to a 3rd set. ;)

Of course, but I see this match as either straight sets for Venus or a 3 set win for Domi. Maybe I didn't articulate that properly.

I voted for Dominika because i want her to win... i fell in love with her since i saw her live in Miami 2008 vs Dementieva...

But i think Venus is definetly the player in from between the two..... and Dominika as the grinder that she is, she loves to take charge of points and hits hard and can make some errors, whereareas a more counterponching stlye would work better if Venus is off :p

I think Venus will have a tough time with this one. Domi beat her handily on a hardcourt, so clay will make it even easier for her. Hope I'm wrong.

i like them both so much!!!
but im going to have to choose Vee, solely on my dream that one day she will capture a Roland Garros title...
GL to both!!

Yea, venus FTW. Straight sets is my guess, I think she will cruise TBH

May 26th, 2010, 09:31 PM
Domi can do this in 3. She has hit a bit of form at the right time, and is the kind of player than can trouble Venus.

C'mon Domi, please win it!! :bounce:

Venus should win this fairly comfortably. Domi's results this year on clay have not been very good. She lost to Govortsova and Kirilenko and was taken to three sets by Parmentier and Lepchenko. :unsure:
