Stosur vs Pennetta by Khum
Samantha Stosur - Flavia Pennetta
Apparently we have here some good equilibrium. Both Stosur and Pennetta are ex top10 players. They are now ranked 22 and 26 in the world, which is very close. Both of them love this tournament and have traditionally good performances here, as the australian is a former US Open champion (2011) and the italian is a former semifinalist here and has reached the quarterfinals no less than 5 more times.
Both of them had potentially tricky 3rd round matches and both overcame in decisive sets (vs. Errani resp. Cetkovska).
But what looks like equilibrium does brutally end when it comes to what's most important in tennis: the matchup. These two have met 7 times before and Pennetta won all those 7 encounters, all on hard courts. That speaks loudly about a missmatchup for Sam Stosur and this is a strong reason for me to trustfully go with Flavia here.
Let's go green!
