No way is Maria losing this final and here is why!

If maria is going to lose, she will do so before the final. She makes the final, the title is hers. So far she has only lost one final to molik and even that one was under an injury cloud, shoulder was bothering her.
Kim on the other hand has won and lost many finals. Maria reminds me of a season in Venus' life when she was 17/1 in finals. I miss those days.
Great as Kim is playing I believe maria's style of play will be to her what serena's, venus' and Justine's games are for her.
Here is another reason why maria should win this final, so far she has managed to win one of everything, from a tier 4/5 to slam, she has it all except the super tier1. Destiny is with this child!
Love Kim but I want maria to complete the winner's circle.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Kim's got nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain. She's playing so well and I think has the ability to beat Maria.

Will be exciting to see the two of them play and hope we get to see a competitive match!

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

This thread is not about Kim but about maria's mental fortitude in finals, she is very difficult to beat once she gets there. it doesn't mean trends cannot be broken but let's face it once she smell the title, she steps it up another notch.

Me too!

Let me present the opposite point of view. Maria's game is all about 1st strike. If she cant get the first strike, she usually loses because she starts to make errors. Not many players can get enough balls back to trouble Maria, however Kim will. Kim has the best defense on the tour, and can easily turn a defensive situation into an offensive situation. Maria hits a ball much like Davenport's, and Kim loves the ball from Davenport. This may go 3 sets, but it will be Kimmie winning the March Doubel!
