It's a pure conjecture, clearly.....
i wanted so much they both would have met in that 4th round of AO 2006, but Hantuchova captured a huge scalp in her career (which was great for her) beating Serena, but i remember that i wanted Serena to win because she would play Maria next round and i knew that Daniela was not going to beat Maria
