I am hoping for an upset here. From what I have seen so far, Mary has played like she deserves to be in the quarterfinals. On the other hand, Anastasia deserved to be out in the second round the way she was playing. She has benefited from a draw that gave her weak opponents who beat themselves more than she beat them.

Mary will win in straight sets.

BTW, whene was the last time Anastasia beat anyone in the top ten?

Hmm well I'm hoping Mary! She's playing so well it looks like she's getting her game back and I want her to get some confidence.

Mary can win in two but she's gotta be aggressive like today and really go for her serves like she did with Dokic. Myskina will try to exploite her movement.

Anastasia is too fast for Mary.

And Myskina beat Rubin at the Australian earlier this year, which, I think, was her last top 10 scalp.

Mary will win. Mary beat Nastya earlier this year, when Nastya was playing much better tennis than right now.

Natsya is playing like crap these last couple of matches, while Mary is playing pretty well. If they both play like they were, then mary will win for sure.

Hopefully they will both pull out, saving me the displeasure of having to watch one of them in a quarterfinal next week.

Did Myskina win ?

When I last looked she was 4-0 down ... well done :).

Still have to favour Mary to win this though, she's striking the ball pretty well and she's also beaten Myskina recently I believe.

Myskina is a joke...that match with her and Antonella was a bigger joke...I hope Mary crushes her...

She needs to do something with that serve...what the hell is she doing when she is working with Landsdorp...is she even still with him...I saw him practicing with Sharapova, but never with Myskina

I hope Mary can win so she can get the bonus point of beating a top ten player, it would be so great.

Myskina leads 2:1

2002-04-01 Sarasota Clay R16 Myskina (RUS) 6-4 3-6 7-6(4)
2003-02-10 Doha Hardcourt R16 Myskina (RUS) 7-5 6-4
2003-04-07 Charleston Clay R32 Pierce (FRA) 6-4 1-6 6-2


These two new rivals met twice this year. Mary one a tough 3-setter on clay. Anastasia won decisively on hardcourts.

Mary definitely has rebounded in the fitness department this summer, and her mental focus was on display in her match against Jelena.

I agree with Liz and PMac: Mary's match to lose.
