maria's game is really picking up and she's passed losing to myskina when she should be beating her. she serves bigg and returns bigger, and she should win. but myskina's tough, a real fighter, and runs down a lot and sends it back with good pace.

What is this?! This is like asking who is gonna win when Steffi Graf plays one of the Maleeva´s. Hello!! The greatest ever doesn´t mess around. Myskina better get a good party after her win against Chanda today, because tomorrow ain´t gonna be pretty...I´d surprised if Myskina even wins more than 3 games in the match.

Myskina can handle Maria she knows what 2 do to stop the attacks she might play like she usually does against big hitter "counter-attack". i hope Nastya wins this

I don't know what you think you're playing at bandabou, but it isn't working...


Anyway, Myskina came out on fire today, and Maria followed her out and topped her performance. So they both seem to be playing well.

If Maria can get past Myskina, I think she has a good chance of going all the way. Myskina is the big test. It's going to be tough because Nastya gets everything back. But if Maria plays her best and keeps cool, I think she can beat Myskina this time. it's 2-0 to Myskina so far.

Make it 2-1 Masha.

The one thing that can hurt Nastya in this match is her second serve...if she can get a high percentage of first serves in, it should be and interesting contest.

I hope it will be on ESPN tomorrow morning.

It should be the final. A semi at least.

Who´s playing?! Tell me one player in history at age 17 who has had better results than Maria! This ain´t no juke.

It's really not an important match. The next time they play in a grand slam will be an importnat match. This match is more important to Maria than Anastasia because Masha needs to prove she will beat Myskina. And I think Masha will win in 3 sets 6-4 3-6 6-3. Masha is bigger and stronger than Myskina is and she needs to make Anastasia feel like a weakling when they play. Nastya can really run though and her defense should pose a major problemfor Masha.
