Based on today's performances, Maria will win 6-1; 6-0. I'm not even kidding. If Maria serves decently, she won't lose serve, and she'll break Jelena over half the time. If Justine, Lindsay and Elena couldn't even win 5 games off Sharapova, why should Jelena be able to win 12?

Sorry to say that, but if Jelena Jankovic would be able to make GS final, that means everyone is able. Maria in 2- 6/2 6/0 if she'll be on, 6/4 6/3 if she'll be off

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Maria will win it. Jelena's court play although very well but Maria's serve far superior than Jelena and she will be right on her backfoot when Maria's 1st serves goes in.

Re: Jankovic trying to reach her first GS final against Sharapova, WWW ?

Hmm I'm not so sure Maria will win in two easy sets. Jelena is like Vicario. She gets many balls back. After she beat Serena tonight, I'm going for Maria in 3 sets. LMAO.
Maria is good, but I don't see this in two easy sets.

She obviously had all things her way today, but will it be enough if jelena keeps her off balance and keeps returning to many ball as she did with serena. If jelena gets inspired, she might just prevail. Its a good thing she will be the underdog, no pressure. Ajde jelena!

Oh, Maria played amazing today, true, but does not mean everything will work in her game in 2 days as well. People were saying Jelena wont win more than 2 games against Serena ...

I think Maria will win, but Jelena will put up a good fight. If only Jelena had a serve...

Why are people so bitchy?

Sharapova 6-3 6-2

She crushed Davenport, Dementieva and Henin so far. Jelena is next.
