Archie's Pick: Petko
Why: He likes the dance, he likes the powerful backhand and most of all, he likes the fact that Andrea is gutting out a fairly serious knee injury as she moves through the draw. Archie said that after her last match he wanted to lick Petko's knee, for whatever that is worth.
My pick: Petko
Why: I'm pretty torn about this pick, because Caroline has been playing her brand of tennis perfectly in New York thus far. She's fit, she's mentally unflappable, and she seems to believe that she can beat anyone right now -- something that might not have been true a few weeks ago when she was struggling. Still, I feel that after these two scramble for a while, somehow Petkovic will find a way to have her bright lights big city moment. I could see this one going either way, but something tells me that Petkovic will have luck on her side.
