H2H is 1-1, but they haven't played since 2008, when, remarkably Tsveti won in 3 sets on clay.

I have nfi about this one. I feel like Pironkova's bh will give Ana fits, and she served well today whereas Ana could have been much better.

Please Ana :unsure:

Hopefully Ana but neither are beating Serena sadly. Ana needs a QF appearance bad though after this rough year.

Please, this is Ana we're talking about. She's losing 62 63.

Has there been a worse 4th rd match in recent memory? The thought of either in the QF is gross.

well the recent worst ones i could think of was the 2009 US Open, you had Oudin vs Wozniacki and Wickmayer vs Bondarenko, and they were all QF matches

Ivanovic in 2

Yes, several in the last four Slams:

Wimby: Radwanska vs. Giorgi
FO: Kvitova vs. Lepchenko
FO: Kanepi vs. Rus
USO 11: Petkovic vs. Suarez Navarro
USO 11: Niculescu vs. Kerber

Although it defines how you define "bad." Ana-Tsveti will be filled with errors but also crushed forehands, big serves, ajdes and momentum swings, and it is likely to be a competitive match.

Pironkova VS Ivanovic is a mouth watering match especially if both play well, probably the best looking match in this tournament!!!
I am rooting but Tzveti but good luck to both.

Please, please, please flop to her it will be just so hilarious. :sobbing:

It won't happen, Pironkova doesn't have it in her mentally to win this.

Cause Tsveti never been in QF and was the only one who took a set from Kvitova,plus Tsveti has nothing to lose,so Ana can has real problems here

Alarmed

It would be hilarious if Ana managed to lose this match, but I actually doubt that it will happen. I actually think it won't even be close.

ana's forehand gifts her the privilege of being crushed by serena. fun times.

if Ana manages to somehow lose this match, I guess she'll never make a QF again :unsure: :sobbing:

Ivanovic to reach her first QF in a slam in 4 years :yeah:.

I can't at Pironkova winning more than 1 match in hard courts http://i931.photobucket.com/albums/ad151/Milot_Sheremeti/tumblr_m7dr98QetR1rri77io1_400.gif

I think that betting odds are with reason 1.25-1.30 on Ana and 3.50-4.00 on Tsveti.

Btw Ana beat yesterday Sloane Stephens WTA#44, and since 2010 that is Ana's 14th win against WTA TOP44 girls on this outdoors fast HC surface (where belong all tournaments USO series, Beijing and Tokyo). I count only events since 2010 because its unfair to count for Ivanovic wins during hers better era when she is for example one year overall winner of USO series, and also when achieve on this surface even couple titles like Montreal and Los Angeles.

On other hand Pironkova since 1987 (when she is born) never beat at all this events with this-like surface any WTA TOP44 opponent!
Sloane Stepens is just 19yo but she already beat in last two weeks two such opponents, and even last season when she is out of TOP100 she beat on this surface 3 TOP44 opponents, so I'm pretty sure that Ana already survive yesterday hers biggest challenge before QF showdown vs Serena.

Im actually really looking forward to this match and think it should be fascinating!

I'm routing for Ana, I really want to see her build her career again.

Didn't think Ana played that well against Stephens but i hope she'll win this one. She's definitely favorite to do so.

I think Ana will get her act together after yesterday's hard win against Stephens... Anyway, with Pironkova playing those slices, Ana should have enough time to run around the ball and play her beloved forehand, but then again, balls with low bounces could pose a slight problem to her. Anyway, I just don't see Pironkova winning this one :angel: So, my pick: Ivanovic in two well-fought sets :cool:

How the hell Pironkova won 3 matches outside grass???? This girl cant win outside grass.

Anyway, hopefully her junk wont give Ivanovic any trouble, but I can see this match getting ugly, is all up to Ana really.

Ana didnt win that match as Sloane lost it and Pironkova is looking stronger and I expect her to win...that said, is she a QF player ??? NO WAY. Go Tvetsi :drool:

I kind of like Pironkova's personality and playing style.

I hope she wins, mostly because Ana will just bend over for her opponent in the QFs. At least Pironkova will put up a fight...

It's unbelievable that one of them will be in a grand slam QF in 2012. I mean Pironkova didn't even win that much in Wimbledon this year and Ivanovic ate 2 bagels on one the USO series hardcourt.
Anyways I'm rooting for Ana and she'll probably win because she has the bigger game.

I think Ana will win. Having said that Pironkova is a tricky opponent, who could cause her some serious troulble, when playing well.

I hope Ana proves me wrong, but it's most likely the end of the road for her.

I really thought there was a chance that Ivanovic was going to take down Serena, but boy was she overmatched! I'm happy to see Serena heading to the finals as she nears the end of her career, especially at such a special tournament to her. She loves the tennis surfaces (http://www.plexipave.com/tennis/plexipave.html) at the US Open, and I think it would be a really nice story if she can beat Maria. Not the easiest task in the world!
