Svetlana or Sharapova?

Who will win this?, its going to be an awesome match! But i guess Svetlana will since Sharapova already lost sets in her previews matches and the luck she got for wimb its not going to happen again.

Venus Williams (The Queen) , Maria Sharapova (The Diva) , Lindsay Davenport (The Legend) , Jelena Janković (The Exotic Beauty) , Serena Williams (The Princess) , Ana Ivanovic (the REAL Promise)

"People said, we weren't going to make it because we were from the 'hood. … People didn't believe in us because of where we came from." Venus Williams.

Luck? Sharapova's Wimbledon was all about skill. Sveta's US Open was about luck as her only good opponent (LD) was injured.

They each have only reached one slam semi. So it's a big match for both.
The winner is the new Russian #1.

They will play in the oppresive Australian heat being the third match of the day on Rod Laver Arena and that's an advantage to Kuznetsova who doesn't struggle as much in the heat as Sharapova does. I think Kuznetsvoa will prevail 7-5 6-3 in large part becausse she's a better athlete than Sharapova is and because she hadnles the hot conditions better than Masha does.

If Sveta wins, she is 2 wins from back to back majors.
Does the WTA want Sveta as their star?

er, shouldnt there be a sveta in 3 and masha in 2 option?

Personally, I think Sharapova is the better player, and if she plays well she should win.

Why doesn't your poll include the options for SK in 3 or MS in 2

sveta errors have been hideous...so she needs to bring those numbers down and she can win.

I really think that Masha has a shot here. Yes, she struggles with the heat, but her win over Farina Elia the other day convinced me that she can really hang out there with the best of them. On the other hand, Sveta has not been tested yet and that may hurt her.

I'm going with Masha in three.
