[Q] Tina Pisnik (SLO) vs. [13] Ai Sugiyama (JPN)
2001-04-30 Bol Clay R16 Tina Pisnik (SLO) 7-5 6-1
2002-01-07 Sydney Hardcourt Q Tina Pisnik (SLO) 6-2 6-3
2002-01-14 Australian Open Hardcourt R64 Ai Sugiyama (JPN) 7-6(2) 6-0

Tina defeated Ai on clay 2 years ago,
now another rematch on clay
Ai had done the impossible so far,
after going down 0-2 on clay thus far,
she defended her 3R points by defeating Patty,
and grabs the final 16th seed in RG........
at 27, she is facing a clay specialist Tina, 22,
who owns her only title from clay,
will the veteran prevaill, or will Tina the clay courter win?

Tina will not get many votes, so I vote for her ;)

But it will be tough to beat Ai, in her current form. :sad: It could have been nice to have Tina in a Tier I Semis. But I'm happy every game Tina can win...

I think she will win, the times I have seen Tina play, she tends to chip'n'charge, and I dont think thats going to threaten Ai that much.
