Nathalie Dechy
1R Bye
2R Evgenia Koulikovskaya (RUS) 6-2 6-1
3R Silvia Farina Elia (ITA) 3-6 6-4 6-4

a rematch of 2nd round last yr,
hard to believe that Nathalie was actually not seeded
and this yr she improved to TOP 20,
what is even more surprising is that
Kim is the youngest player left in the TOP half,
both Kim and Nathalie lived up to thier rankings,
Kim now has her chance to revenge for last yr......

kim wasn't all that convincing so far, so i'll go out on a limb and say nathalie will win...

Kim did not play her best tennis this week, but I hope it's a good thing for her to win some though matches!

This match will be close, I don't predict a winner, b/c I really don't know who will win this one...

"I look forward to that [rematch]," Clijsters said. "I lost to her here last year. I really want to get that revenge back. I'll definitely have to play better than what I did today. She's a good player, very tough. She hardly makes any mistakes, and she runs well. But I'll make sure I'll be ready for it."

So I think Kim gonna win in 2sets!!!

Of course, the definition of Kim not playing very well is 2 straight set wins by not as many breaks as we would like to see.

Mar 10th, 2003, 05:26 PM
I think Kim will be play better tomorrow. She can crick her playstyle up when she play a difficult opponent, that's why she is the number 3 in the world.

Allez allez allez!!!
