1. Technically, Ivanovic is clearly the better player.
2. This season, Ivanovic has clearly been the better player and more conifdent player.
3. Vera has lost to: Zuluaga, Douchevina, Linetskaya, Llagostera Vives, Razzano and Benesova, and has a 10-6 record (5-6 w/o Memphis.)
4. Ivanovic has a 20-5 record (one of the best on tour at the moment.)
How the HELL could ANYONE say that Vera is the favorite going into the match after seeing their histories from the year's first four months?
