I was going to pick Kim in striaght sets until I saw the h2h and how more ripped Mehgann has gotten, since I last saw her, which was Wimbeldon, where she went out early. I know Vera is no Kim, but Kim wasn't playing all that great today and could have had a tough match if her opponent was a lot better (Svetlana was hitting too many UE's and that is the main reason the score wasn't even close). If Kim plays the way she played today, I say Meghann in three tough sets, but if Kim plays the way she has played in the previous rounds, she will win in straight sets.

BTW, the h2h between Kin and Meghann is 3-2 Kim.

Kim is obviously the favorite.
However, Maghann just took out Zvonareva in three sets,
a match which many thought she wouldn't/couldn't win.
I think if she is on top of her game and Kim is a little off she could
upset the #1 seed.

Logic:
Meghann beat Venus 7-6(2) 6-1 in Key Biscayne about 5-6 weeks before her abdominal injury flared up in Warsaw. A hurt Venus was able to take Kim out in three sets(holding her to one game in the third)at Wimbledon. So, If Meghann can beat Venus and Venus can beat Kim,
Maghann should be able to beat Kim.

As I said if Kim is a little off and Maghann can capitalize on any chances,
I think she could take Kim in a tight three sets.


I pick Meghann

Meghann is one of the most dangerous floaters of the tour (the other is Rubin). If she's on her game and Kim plays like she played today, she is able to upset Kim in three sets. If she's not, then Kim in a tight set and an easy set.

Kabuke that logic isn't too sound..you can't compare players like that. Chanda for example has beaten any number of players who have beaten Kim..yet Chanda has never beaten Kim. Kim isn't Venus.

kim also made tons of errors! she got me annoyed with those easy mistakes... but it was all gone when she finished the match with a beautiful drop shot! clever!

Go KIM

Even though I thought Kim played pretty much like pants today, I cant see her losing to Meghan.

Am I the only one who thought Kim played like pants (while winning comfortably?) The Sky pundits afterwards spent the whole time how easily she'd won and Sam Smith went so far as to say that Kim is the Andre Agassi of the women's event. Ooooh, I hope she's right.

Go Kimbo

:yeah:

I didn't say in this tournament :rolleyes: A floater is someone that can play extremely good at one time and upset someone when you don't expect it. Rubin almost beat Venus at the US Open last year, beat Serena in Los Angeles last year and had easy back to back wins over Amelie and Justine at Miami this year. All on hardcourt.

The person who is the most dangerous floater is Emilie Loit.

The way Meghann can win is to 1. be AGGRESSIVE 2. cut down on UE's and 3. Kim has to make UE's...

GOOD LUCK MEG!! :)
