Dubai F - Venus Williams v Virginie Razzano - Who Will Win?

Rematch of 2007 Tokyo Open final, but this final is a lot more important. I think some of us have forgotten there is still a match to be played at Dubai Vee has beaten her before!

So who wins?

Hopefully Virginie won't be intimidated. Take this!

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

Venus in 2 sets, but she'll make it a nail-biter. Nothing's ever easy with Venus.

Re: Dubai F - Venus Williams v Virginie Razzano - Who Will Win?

If Venus doesn't win I think my head might explode.

Razzano is obviously in good form, having beaten some top players, and she knows she can beat Venus, so it should be a tough match.

Venus is in good form too, her Serve percentage hasn't been great, but she has done quite well on serve anyway, from the baseline she looks solid, my only concern is her returns have been below her best this week, she has dumped a fair few returns in the net.

In the final Venus must keep everything solid, attack the net and keep the errors down, if she does that she is the superior player and should come through in straight sets.......... if she plays badly or below her best, who knows?

My main concern is that Venus doesn't come out thinking the match is a formality and play loose tennis, or even worse get tight and choke, we have seen that Venus can be vulnerable if opponents play above their station so to speak. (IE: Aussie open loss)
