Stosur vs. Stevenson

who do you think will win? both of them hae big serves and both are usually inconsistent. stosur has picked it up a bit and is now more consistent but stevenson has had a bad year.

if stevenson is in-form she should blow stosur off the court but if stosurs serve is working then i think the match might be settled in tiebreaks.

the winner of this match up potentially plays zvonareva so they would be a dangerous draw for vera.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

I saw Stosur play today and she did great and I hope she gets very far in this tournament. I haven't seen Stevenson play yet since she's been here, so I don't know how she's been doing. I would like to see Stosur win this match rather than Stevenson...But I'm excited I'm going to watch it because hopefully it's going to be an interesting match to watch.

i saw both of them at the oz open, stevenson (in the first round) looked to be playing pretty well but in the second round she didn't look good at all. i saw stosur's 2nd round match against webb and her serve looked great but her groundies were very inconsistent.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

I give Sam a chance...she can hold her own in the serving department and if her groundies are on then she has a great chance of pulling off a huge upset.

Still, you gotta go with Stevenson, but she is playing pretty ordinary tennis atm, and she is the defending finalist so she'll have a little bit of pressure to defend those points. Great opportunity for Stosur IMO.

Damn I was hoping Sam would get someone else...... but I suppose she's at a time in her career when it would be good to start meeting the likes of Stevenson a bit more often.

Can she win??? She was able to stay toe-to-toe for a while with Hantuchcova who's more consistent than Stevenson and she was able to do some damage with Daniella's serve.

Hopefully Stevenson's serve isn't on, and Sam's backhand (which i thought was a bit stiff) can stand up to the pace.

There's more to life than just being happy.
