Jennifer Capriati (USA) [2] vs Vera Zvonareva (RUS)
this is their 1st meeting

ROAD TO QF

Vera Zvonareva (RUS)
1R Tatiana Poutchek (BLR) W 6-2 7-5
2R Iva Majoli (CRO) W 6-1 3-6 6-2
3R Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) W 3-6 7-6(5) 6-4
4R Meghann Shaughnessy (USA) W 6-3 4-6 6-2

Jennifer Capriati (USA)
1R Bye
2R Antonella Serra Zanetti (ITA) W 6-4 6-2
3R Denisa Chladkova (CZE) W 6-2 6-2
4R Elena Dementieva (RUS) W 6-4 4-6 6-1

a huge contrast between these 2.........
3 time Grand Slam winner vs no title,
and this is actually Vera's debut in Indian Wells,
but the 2 3 setters vs big hitters must have
taken a lot out of her............
now the biggest hitter in her quarter.....
will she pull thru or will Jennifer
live up to her seeding once again and take Vera out?

I fear JenCap wins without own abilities ...

Hopefully Vera can succeed but it's very clear if she starts cursing around the match is gone.
Vera showed classy tennis vs Meghann. So I think she has the skills to beat Jenny - but not the nerves. :(

JenCap bts VeraZ 6-4 6-4

Jen's gonna win in 2! Jen spanked Svetlana Kuznetsova a couple of weeks ago at Dubai, and Vera barely got by her in 3 tough sets. No contest!

GO JENN!!!! :hearts:

Jen should take it okay, although the ease of her victory depends on whether she can keep her concentration levels up!

maybe not..........dont you wanna see another TOP 10 win for Vera?
how cool will it be if she wins Indian Wells this yr........
all the hype and everything,
what she needs is just to beat 3 TOP 10 players in a row
and she should be in TOP 20 in no times.......
so GO VERA......:)

Is it just me or does Vera's style ressemble Kim's? I saw Vera play Meghann and some of her strokes really remind me of the way Kim hits the ball.

Some aren't Vera fans, but one that would rather just see Jen losethe bottom line is that jennifer will blow this ruskie right back to moscow. i see that there is a wave of sentiment over the russians now, and for good measure, they are the wonder girls. but dont go berserk. i dont like jennifer at all, but i calls em as i sees em. jennifer at her best, is one of the greatest tennis player ever. vera will never be the player that capriati is at her best. vera will have to play out of her mind to beat cappy if she's on. i think the thread should of been will cappy play to her best or not against this excellent player

agreed, Jen at Vera's age is already a gold medalist..........
too bad that she never played long enough to be a #1 threat....
she did achieve Slams and #1 later in her life...........
had she not dropped out early, we would be able to see
her doing a Hingis by taking over Graf's era...........
and then compete against both Lindsay and Hingis........
btw, Lindsay is actually even younger than Jen,
too bad she never did so till so late.
anyways, Vera is good, but she
doesnt seem to be a child prodigy,
good luck anyways.......

and you will be in TOP 20 in no time.....
