An Italian duel on American soil! For a chance to got to semis, it'll be a first!!

H2H is all tied up at 4-4 but no match since 2010

I'm going Flavia in 3, for sentimental reasons.

This is a hard one to call. I would say the it's 50-50 as to which one could win. Either way Italy wins.

Penneta is more solid on hardcourts and can take out Vika or Ana...

I went w/ Flavia in 3. She has more experience getting to the USO QF twice before. She overcame Halep. I just hope she doesn't have a letdown.

This is the hardest match to pick seeing they havent played each other for sometime
I will go with Flavia in 3 sets...I liked the way she hung tough in her match the other day

Flavia is hot but Vinci is on a mission!

Roberta will win in straights.

Not straights Kiu. After several breaks, Flavia holds on and takes the opener 6-4

Vinci needs to change the gameplan of the backhand slice/rushing the net...it's not working and making the match a little boring...might have to switch to doubles now.

Geesh. Flavia wasn't playing around. I think Roberta might have held once. Anyway, Flavia gets to her first SF 6-4 6-1.
