Strong Predictions for the YEC Finals

What's the possible score tomorrow? Straight sets or three setters? Who will win? Maria or Serena?

If Serena's playing like she did today, Maria ain't gonna win in two.

I would desperately love Maria to won. But I think she'd lose the first set at least.

Lets say 3-6 6-3 6-4 *hopes*

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

If Serena is playing like she did during the third set of the Mauresmo watch, she's going to win it in straight sets. But if she slacks off a bit and lets Sharapova get off to an early lead, she'll win in three. I just don't see that happening... as Pam pointed out during the Amelie match, Serena tends to raise her game when she's playing somebody she recently lost to, and especially since the loss to Sharapova was so high profile, I say she comes out smokin' like the Serena of old.

Prediction: (7) Serena Williams d. (6) Maria Sharapova 6-1, 6-4

If Maria can cut out some of the errors she has the game to match it with Serena and it could be an interesting 3 setter.

When Serena and Masha play Their final today
all sorts of emergency services could come into play
when the Fire service hear Masha's penetrating siren like sound
Fire Engines and ambulances will gather around
they will think that something has really gone wrong
not knowing it's just Masha's tennis playing song

and when Serena wins a big point and starts bouncing around
She will cause a heaving motion to spread through the ground
and the shockwave that bouncing great body will send through the dirt
will set off a major earthquake alert

So I just hope these two can tone down Their habits
cause the officials will call off the match and act like frightened rabbits
then We will all be pissed off,and We will never see
Who is the real Queen ,of this years YEC

MOSCOW, November 15 (RIA Novosti) - Shamil Tarpishchev, President of the Russian Tennis Federation, believes that the American tennis player Serena Williams stands a better chance of winning the WTA Tour Championships final match than does her opponent, Russia's Maria Sharapova. The WTA Tour finals will be played in Los Angeles' Staples Center on Monday, November 15.

Williams will have a slight advantage over her Russian challenger, although Sharapova might come out the winner, too, Tarpishchev said. He remarked that Sharapova, this year's Wimbledon champion, was in perfect shape in her first two WTA Tour matches, but looked somewhat tired in the subsequent matches. As the fatigue built up, her performance became increasingly unstable.

As for Williams, she has not won many titles this year, and would not have made it into the Tour Championship finals if Anastasia Myskina had not lost to the American three sets of her opening match, argues Tarpishchev.

"Williams is fresh from the nervous system's point of view and Sharapova, given her young age and the number of matches behind her, will find it hard to play in a stable way," predicted Russia's top tennis official. In the semi-finals, Williams defeated France's Amelie Mauresmo while Sharapova beat a fellow Russian, Myskina. The winner of the final match will receive 485 points on WTA rankings and 1 million dollars in prize money. The loser will go home with 340 points and a monetary reward of $500,000.

Not agreeing or disagreeing, just thought this was interesting. Could be reverse psychology, who knows.
