Williams vs Kuznetsova - Warsaw final

Interstingly, the two semis had the same score.
H2H is even.

03 Aus Open V.Wiiliams 6-4 6-2
04 Dubai Kuznetsova 6-2 6-3

Just to save everyone the trouble. Yes Venus was having trouble in the first few tournaments of her comeback, and seems to have righted the ship now. And yes, a straight set win the last time out is a straight set winthe last time out.

Many, many, many more winners, on both the winning and losing side, in Kuznetsova's semis as opposed to Venus'. I'm not even bothering with a prediction, you all already know what I'd say.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Very tough to predict... both girls are on fire this week. I'd probably pick Vee if I absolutely had to... but this could go either way, and will be a great gauge of where each player is at.

Sveta's lost two finals this year already... I hope she takes this one

Venus in two easy sets. Sveta got lucky in Dubai, just like Vera in Paris. Venus seems to be healthy and playing great tennis on what is said to be her worse surface.

Venus is fighting for her reputation to be restored. She's not about to let this one slip, especially since she's in command of the tour.

All eyes are on V.

She knows this and thereby will deliver and WILL regain her FEAR factor. This is a no-brainer. She is on FIYA!!!

Kuznetsova in three sets. They both are in perfect physical conditions. Should be a great rally.

Unwisely judging from the stats (and either the opponents were pretty comparable or Schiavone was playing better) venus will win if she plays a lot better than today and Kuznetsova will win if they both play at the same level.

Judging by the score, if Venus plays better than she played today, it'll be blowout.
