If both play like yesterday, Dementieva will win in 2.

Whoever wins this should go on to win the title. Want it to be Ana but have a feeling it will be Elena unless Ana really steps up her game.

At clay is tied 0-0 and Elena won 2 of this 4 matches against #19 and #22 too young Ana, and 3rd match won at EXO (BTW Ana lose all her 2008 preseason matches).

Elena only chances is in fact that Ana still not played in Berlin her standard game and will play twice today. Ana is still favorite.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

I love Ana to death. But you are too biased and make too many excuses for her.

Ivanovic's level of play is immaterial to her winning or losing. I mean, does she ever play a good match? Yet she wins. She was MOONBALLING in those last few points against Bammer, for heaven's sake.

Lena D. is a bad matchup for Ivanovic, but on clay her serve will be extremely vulnerable (even more than the usual, if that is possible) to Ivanovic's baseball batter return.

Yet I think Lena D. has a shot if she manages to make the match drag long enough for Ivanovic to run out of gas after having played that set earlier today. But then again Ivanovic is likely to come in blasting everything away and trying to finish off every point in 2-3 shots (even more than the usual, if that is possible), so should she find her range this may be over much sooner than anyone could have expected.

Ugly, ugly match either way.

I remembered you a couple of days back while watching the Ivanovic vs Bammer match. Tried to find some traces of Ivanovic's mad claycourt skillz you go on about so often. Couldn't find any.

Yet she wins...

It's not "excuses". Elena Dementieva is simple better player than young Ana in first half of 2006, EXO matches means nothing and they realy never play at clay.

It's remind me when i discuss here about Ana/Venus match-up. When Venus lead 4-0 (all 4 in straight sets) i notice that 2 of that 4 wins Venus have before 2007 when Ana is far away of TOP10 class players and other two at worlds fastest surfaces (Wimbledon grass and USO hardcourts) where Venus simple still better player than Ana. So i say that previous 4-0 h2h will means nothing if they meet at some medium or slower surfaces and we all know what is happen in Melbourn this season.

If you judge about Nadal claycourt game only according to his lose against Ferrero in Wednesday - you will not find anything great about that.
