50/50. One thing in Maria's favour would be if she could bring her standard of returning that she had in the Australian Open -- her returning was the one part of her game that was worse in 2012 than it was in 2011, which is one reason (though not the only) why she struggled so much more with Stosur last year. But it seems to have improved vastly over the offseason (both in terms of reacting quickly to 1st-serve bombs, and killing 2nd serves--the latter is something she DEFINITELY has to be doing well against Stosur).

But I can never quite trust Maria in strong winds, especially when Stosur beat her in that epic shitfest in hurricane conditions in Tokyo last year. :o

What if Scaredpova decides to tank to avoid Servena in the SF?

:oh:

Yawn. You can accuse Sharapova of a lot of things, but she would never in her life tank a match :lol:

THIS. Maria never withdraws/throws a match just because of a potential future opponent. Unlike some other players ranked above her...

Sharapova def. Stosur in choking fashion.

The players above her ranking have defeated her more than like 15 times between them, it is highly unlikely they would tank at the possibility of a match against Masha, it is almost a given win for either one. :lol:

I'm not talking about them withdrawing before they face Maria..each other, on the other hand...

its almost a given that one will be extremely injured every time she loses to said Sharapova

There is also wind that could be and probably will be playing... if Maria will produce a big amount of UE's and DF's then who knows?

Both playing pretty good although I suspect both would like to cut down on their errors a bit. No idea who will win but the one thing I would anticipate, based on how their matches have gone this week, is that there will be a lot of breaks of serve by both girls. Oh, and it will probably be close.

:oh:

Probably the only way Vuvu can avoid a comprehensive drubbing in the F, since Stosur can at least play SErena somewhat close.

Or if Serena tanks in the SF after getting the #1 ranking back.

:oh:
