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.

Maria is a high quality opponent. But Elena is playing some great tennis. Maria is going to attack Elena, it will be good to see how Elena counter attacks and if she can use her superior mobility to her advantage.

Off the ground Elena is better, the serve goes to Maria. Elena is a great returner. Hopefully both girls will not be nervous or in awe and just provide a good match.

I hope Elena wins. Good luck!

Dementieva's serve may get attacked, but Maria will get attacked back by the solid groundstrokes of elena and dementieva's serve is not that bad. I mean she has a lower speed than the rest of the field, but her placement of the serve is very good. anyways, i think elena will beat sharapova in 3 sets, but three very tough sets. IT WILL BE HARD!!!!!

I like both. But I believe Maria will win it quite easily..... Maria looks confident and must be hungry for a Tier 1 title to prove that "I am not just a one-Slam wonder!!" On the other hand, Elena looks mentally and physically tired!!!

Maria win it something like 6-1 6-4!

Maria looked better. Elena is tired. Maria has a great return. Elena's serve is not great. Russian players play to ranking. Pride counts. Elena is very determined. Maria is very determined. Elena is recovering from another outing with Nastya. Maria will be on a high after beating venus. both would like a Tier 1 title and might wrongly fancy a final against Patty. No idea who will win.
