Cool Who Will Take Their First Title? Alona Bondarenko (UKR) v Francesca Schiavone (ITA)

I am gonna say Fran 6-1 6-4. She is gonna go out there to prove people wrong, and the first set will be awesome. Big lead 2nd set, gets a bit nervy, but manages to pull it off.

I hope francesca wins the title. she's way overdue 4 her 1st one & plus who doesn't deserve a title with her friendly personality. she does have the edge of alona of experience in finals so i hope that shows.

Rooting for the Cinderella story to continue, but Fran will grab it in two comfortable sets and rid her resume of a major problem.

You can't ask for a better opponent than Bondarenko in a tier 2 final. If Fran doesn't win this, well....

*1*Lindsay Davenport*1*

Maria Sharapova/Jelena Jankovic/Justine Henin

Also supporting Carla Suarez Navarro,Na Li, Sabine Lisicki,Karolina Sprem,Samantha Stosur,Tamira Paszek

Amelie Mauresmo/Martina Hingis
