Who will win? ;)

Monica has a very tricky game so I wouldn't be surprised if she'd trouble Sam.
Don't hope so, I say Stosur in 2 tough sets or perhaps 3 sets. :)

stosur easily, for sure

Probably too much topspin for Monica to deal with. Stosur in 2.

Should be a good experience for Monica. The more you play the top players the easier it gets. I would expect Sam to win this. But I'm hopeful Monica can make it a competitive match and that will serve her well for future encounters against top 10 standard players.

I think sam as easy as the last scoreline just because sam Is playing ok this week, plus she has a lot more power than monica. But still a good week for monica.

I voted for Monica out of humor. If she can keep slicing the ball to the backhand...

Hopefully Sam, but I won't hold my breath - she's played terribly in both her matches sofar, and I could see Niculescu capitalising on that just like she did when she got her only other win to date that actually meant something, over Na in China when Na played one of the worst matches ever by a reigning Slam champion.

Get ready for a Niculescu-Safarova semifinal people :drool:

Bad match-up for Monica. Sam is at least serving well and has a lot of power and spin on her forehand, maybe a bit too much for Monica to set up her own tricks. her only chance is to go consistently for her opponent's backhand and hope that it will fall apart.

But she has nothing to lose. Another great week and good ranking points. :)

Sorry Monica, but I checked rankings....

After I saw the rankings I want Sam as winner. Unless Radwanska loses her match.
