petrova is better in all departments except the obvious backhand, that jelena has arguably the best in the game right now, and jelena is way faster, especially since petrova isn't exactly a gentle giant. but it's a slower surface and the balls won't come neatly to jelena, and so petrova should win this in straight sets.
she's got much more stamina as well, and can take three sets if needed on the slow surface. i really do see her winning the long rallies much more.
i hope jelena has a better draw next time.
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
