I'm actually more worried about young Vera (who has nothing to lose) than Maggie! Maggie seems to be in a but of a slump, and I believe if Iva can beat the young Russian she has a great shot against Maggie.
Fingers crossed that our girl can get past this tough young talent! C'mon Iva!!!!!!
The one qualifier I really wanted to see do well has to play against my fave. And she's probably the toughest qualifier, too. Can I jump on the bandwagon of draw-rigging accusations?
They both have a chance. Vera's still inexperienced, and may give crucial points away. Let's just hope that last week's Iva doesn't show up. If Iva beats Vera, I agree - she has a good shot at Maggie and, dare I say it, Stevenson in r3. And then Hingis in r4...
wow! Great way to keep your nerve Iva! I am also a fan of young Vera, so it's great to see her playing so well and mixing it with the big girls. I wouldve felt really bad to perform voodoo on Vera...but hey
[email protected]! Im a Maggie fan too, and I hope she recovers her form, but Im afraid Iva *needs* this win badly! Im confident Iva can pull this off, but it by no means is a given! Should be tight....and someone mentioned Alex Stevenson in rnd 3...hopefully Evie can put her out before Iva can play her
Actually zlatko I think it was 4-1 Iva in the 3rd, so quite a remarkable comeback from Vera!
So Iva breaks the 2 month drought and gets a run on the board...keep it up baby!!!!!!!!!!!!
