    Juan Jose,
    Li to win this match in straights as she is playing well so far. Thanks for the analysis for us people who have day jobs and can not watch.

    I’m going to pick Li in straights. She looked very comfortable in her last match, even attempting a serve and volley. She didn’t make it but that showed me she was feeling confident with her game andwilling to mix it up.

    Juan Jose,
    Agree completely on Li as we both know, she is the streakiest player in the WTA. Wonder what Rodriguez will say if Li calls him on the court during a changeover.

    Keep up the good work, Juan Jose. Have an idea on what is happening. If Li go ahead and win, she will have to clean up her game against most likely against S Williams tomorrow evening.

    Nice work Juan Jose.. I think Gabby (can we call her that?) is just a terrific talent.. She outclassed Pavy last week in a way that you would not have thought possible by a young player.

    If we are discussing streaky players I need to throw Petra into the mix. Li Na might have the edge but Petra is is doing her best to keep up!

    I saw on twitter that Li did attempt a serve and volley – but not if it was successful. I will (hopefully) get to see tomorrow if it is a tactic she is trying to incorporate in her game

    It felt like the vast majority of this match was on Li’s racquet and whether she would manage to control her erraticness enough to win. Nonetheless, it’s heartening to see a youngster with such groundstroke power and pretty good poise too. The WTA prospects are definitely being a *lot* more promising than the ATP prospects are.

      The WTA has new talents popping up everywhere.
      The ATP had the same Harrison, Tomic, Dimitrov and Raonic for years.
