Li Na will face another big server with huge groundstrokes in this intriguing quarter-finals. In terms of form, Li looks better. However, the crazy Czech will always complicate things by play 3 setters against all her opponents. Li, please teach her a lesson on how to focus and not make your fans suffer.
Pick: Li in 2 sets
Serena Williams vs. Caroline Wozniacki
Call it lack of motivation or pure laziness, the slam winning Serena Williams is just not here. Against players that she owned in her previous matches, Serena is sluggish and played longer than necessary. Against Caroline, she will be in trouble with her lazy footwork. Look out for the upset here as the Dane tries to secure her year-end championship place.
Jelena Jankovic vs. Lucie Safarova
Wow... Jelena looks to be in the form of her life by dismissing Suarez Navarro with the dreaded double bagel. Against Lucie who barely scraped through her match against Petkovic, she is the firm favourite to win this. Lucie needs to serve well and take control of the point from the first ball. Tough task for her after a long drawn match.
Pick: Jankovic in 2 sets
Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Angelique Kerber
A rematch of their Tokyo quarter-final clash, Radwanska will be eager to take revenge for that loss. Being the smart player that she is, she will definitely come in with a game plan and work on the mistakes she committed earlier in Tokyo. Kerber will be confident as well, defeating her just last week. Whatever it is, this will be a good match. Maybe Kerber wants it more with the YEC place hanging on the thread.
Pick: Kerber in 3 sets
