Good. She just lost 5 games overall so that's a pretty good start.
A rematch against Dokic could be a little bit trickier. On a good day she can be a major threat. Marion will need to keep serving well.
I start to be very afraid of Zheng looming in her quarter. I still have in memory this R3 exit when she could have easily reached the semies.

Oh well a win is a win. If she was playing as badly as everyone says, she probbaly would have lost this match a few years ago. Id rather her play badly now anyway and still win. Plus she didnt play that well at the start of Wimbledon either.
I agree with Iceland about Zheng, shes the biggest threat in this quarter... I was never worried whatsoever about Stosur but Zheng is tricky...

I'm worried about Dokic. From what I saw of the Sydney highlights, Jelena was overpowering a passive Marion in the second set when she had it together, and the crowd could be a big factor in this match.
Marion needs to be aggressive and, of course, serve well.
