Alright, this is going to be fun, Maria vs. Maria, Ovi vs. Kobe... :-)
The all-Russian all-Maria clash in the semifinals will certainly be a noisy affair, but the result is more difficult to predict after Kirilenko gave a fearless demonstration in her straight-set defeat of 2011 Wimbledon champion Kvitova earlier in the day. They meet for the sixth time with Sharapova claiming the 3-2 edge. Kirilenko’s most relevant defeat of Sharapova was in the first round at the 2010 Australian Open.
Me and my friend get ready for Maria match!!!!haha!!
Who Kobe will be rooting for? My guess is for former Lakers Sasha Vujačić's fiancee...
Wikipedia on Kobe:
Following O'Neal's departure Bryant became the cornerstone of the Los Angeles Lakers franchise. He led the NBA in scoring during the 2005–06 and 2006–07 seasons, setting numerous scoring records in the process.
Wikipedia on Vujačić:
During the 2005–06 season Vujačić made the go-ahead three-pointer in overtime to give the Lakers the lead for good in a win against the Utah Jazz.
