In Elena-Nastya match, apparently we'll have one winner, but one loser too. Naturally, I am neutral on this one.
Tania vs Eleni, Tania should pull thru on experience, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the greek girl win this one.
Sveta-Iroda, I think that, while Iroda is favourite, Sveta might surprise us.

On men's side, optimistically, I count on both Misha and Marat winning. But realistically, Misha could be upset today. Hopefully not.

We have a lot to cheer for in doubles. And the last question, who thinks that Zhenya won't tank his doubles match today?

It's really sad that Kafelnikov threw his career away by playing far too many tournaments over the last 10 years. I said years ago, that Yevgeny would burn out at a young age. And unfortunately he has. Let's hope Marat Safin avoids the same mistake in her career.

In a battle of the most beautiful legs in tennis, Elena Dementieva plays Anastassia Myskina. I hope Dementieva wins. She could win a couple more rounds. If Myskina wins, then she'll probably lose the next match. Udachi Elena!

I would love to see a Safin/Youzhny 3rd round match. But of course here in America, they won't show that match on ESPN2. I'm sure of that.

Burnout at young age? He will be 28 in one month time, for CS.. That's the age when most of the tennis greats has already retired or past their prime. I however concede the possibility that it could be the beginning of the end. I do hope that at least he still has it in him to give one more good shot at winning DC ( because when he's gone, Russia is unlikely to have a good chance soon ), and winning a record-breaking 6th straight Kremlin Cup..
