I have a feeling this is gonna be a close one. I like both, but obviously I want Chanda to win. Has she never beaten Mary then???!I'll say Chanda in 3 sets, or two close sets.
GO CHANDA!!!!!!!!!!!

I am looking forward to this one - I so hope they show up, because if i get up at 4 in the morning and it ain't on I am gonna hit the roof!

I think it will be very close. I think Mary would annihalate her at her best, but it will be a struggle. They both have huge forehands - Mary's is bigger though - and both have solid backhands - although Mary's is bigger. I think Mary will take a liking to Chanda's serve, but must serve well herself. The big question will be movement - how much will Chanda make Mary move?

As much as I want Mary, I think it'll be Chanda in two, especially if Chanda improves her form from the last round...Mary isn't fit enough...

Ktwtennis - I find it hard to believe that Mary is not looking a little trimmer (remember we are talking world-class athletes here). She said she was training really hard in Scottsdale all last Fall, and I expected to see her ala 1999 but she does not LOOK as fit as I thought she would.

Saying that I haven't seen her play (hopefully tonight) and I think she will only get fitter the more she plays. I really really want her to put in a good showing.
