Kirilenko beat Kuznetsova just a few weeks ago :shrug: Svetlana is being unpredictable as usual and managed to survive Petkovic today :lol: while Maria seems to be in good form herself.

I think the mind is set, that you don't want to be down mps again like that in that situation will push her through.

in a slam cant see Sveta losing it and now its r3 dont see her getting caught out again, and even less so if its on one of the two big courts.
wish and hope Lil Masha will win

MK will be lucky to win a set this time me thinks, but I would love for her to pull it out again :D
May 26th, 2010, 09:44 PM
Maria is the more confident player right now. She will still go into this match as the underdog, but I think she can win this one in 2! :)
Good luck Maria :bounce:
May 26th, 2010, 09:50 PM
Please Kiri! Beat her again :unsure:
May 26th, 2010, 10:42 PM
Maria in 3!!!

Davai Maria :p

Sveta has to win. I'm scared she's the only player in her quarter who can stop Caro! :tape: :sobbing:
May 27th, 2010, 01:38 AM
i think Sveta will domineer poor Kiri this time around.
May 27th, 2010, 01:45 AM
Masha please finish the job that Andrea could not finish :shout:
May 27th, 2010, 03:13 AM
If Sveta doesn't start well, she will lose eventually, no matter it's 2 or 3 sets.
May 27th, 2010, 03:21 AM
Sveta in one tight set and one blowout.
May 27th, 2010, 06:28 AM
Yeah I don't see Kiri beating Sveta this time as much as I'd like her to. I'm happy she made R3 and I hope she puts up a good fight anyways.
May 27th, 2010, 06:47 AM
Kuznetsova actually isn't in a bad form, she was pretty nervous and the Petkovic-match must give her a lot of self-confidence. I don't really see Maria win this on clay but I'd love to see it :-)
May 27th, 2010, 06:48 AM
im afraid kuzzy'll lose in 3 :sad:
May 27th, 2010, 07:05 AM
Let`s take Sveta out Kiri :hearts:

May 27th, 2010, 07:56 AM

May 27th, 2010, 08:06 AM
Sveta in 3

Interesting. The Petkovic may be the match that gives Sveta a kick up the backside, or else it may make no difference whatsoever (a bit like Safina and all those comebacks at the US Open).
Maria is going to have to go out there, move the ball around and be aggressive whenever she can. If Sveta is pushing then she really needs to find her way to the net whenever possible. I know I say that every single time she plays a top player, but whether it be on clay, grass, hard or cow manure, the net is the place she can really take it to the top players so I really hope she does do it. I think the fact that she beat Sveta a couple of weeks ago on this surface will also help Maria if it gets tight as i'm sure she will be confident about her chances of repeating. I'll go with Maria in three.

Makiri in 2 (I hope).
May 27th, 2010, 09:41 AM
Kiri in 3
May 27th, 2010, 12:13 PM
Sveta in 2. Really, Kirilenko doesn't give her anything she can't handle so she should be able to dismantle her. I still don't know how Kirilenko beat her in Rome :scared:.
