Maria Sanchez Lorenzo (ESP) vs. Conchita Martinez Granados (ESP)
2002-05-27 Roland Garros Clay R48/Q Conchita Martinez Granados (ESP) 6-2 3-6 6-2
2003-04-14 Budapest Clay R32 Maria Sanchez Lorenzo (ESP) 6-7(4) 7-5 6-3

the H2H is tied 1:1 and both went to 3 sets
this is an all Spanish former SF-list semifinal
Maria Sanchez Lorenzo (ESP)
1R: (Q) Schruff GER 6-3 6-4
2R: (6) Nagyova SVK 2-6 6-0 6-4
QF: Talaja CRO 7-6 7-5

Conchita Martinez Granados (ESP)
1R: (4) Pratt AUS 6-4 6-3
2R: Poutchek BUL 6-4 6-1
QF: Garbin ITA 7-5 7-6

this is a battle b/w 2 former SF-list
both have taken out a seed on their way to the SF,

being 25, Maria already got a clay title,
and at 27, Conchita has yet to reach a final,
even thought both have reached the SF,
Maria's career has been more impressive,
but being only one place higher in ranking,
this is almost garanteed to be a close match
2 Spanish player on clay......

I think Maria will win in 2

I think I'll be cheering for Maria, since she would probably have more chances to win the title.
