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!!!!!!

If Iva beats Vera, she will beat Maggie with ease.

My predictions:

Iva bts. Zvonareva 6-4 5-7 6-4
Iva bts. Maleeva 6-3 6-4

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Nothing to worry about....Iva will use her first round match as a warmup for her "upset" of Maggie.

Roll, Iva, Roll!

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...

not getting ahead of myself at all here...

I'm just glad Iva won this match. Hopefully, she shook off all the rust in this match and can do well against Maggie!!

GO DIVA IN MIAMI!!!

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!!!!!!!!!!!!
