With Lena D the serve is always a question, but somehow she has recently managed to find the answer. She has been playing good tennis recently, and a second final in as many weeks wouldn't be shocking. On the other hand, she did just have a tough match with a out of form Sugiyama.
Masha must be brimming with confidence adding quality to quantity in her recent match performance. She has so many weapons on a surface this fast, and in top form she could easily hold and get a few breaks in hand to take the match
However, Lena D won't let Maria get as many free points on serve as Maria would like, and the fast low bouncing surface will probably make Lena's serve a little harder to attack. It will be close, but I think it goes to Elena in three sets, 2-6, 7-5, 6-3.
