Zvonareva:
2R - def. #63 Chan 62 62
3R - def. #46 Kvitova 63 61
4R - def. #45 Li 64 64
QF - def. #13 Wozniacki 64 62
SF - def. #11 Azarenka 63 63

Ivanovic:
2R - def. #95 Yakimova 64 63
3R - def. #36 Dulko 63 63
4R - def. #15 Pennetta 64 46 64
QF - def. #29 Bammer W/O
SF - def. #42 Pavlyuchenkova 62 63

Vera's had the better run, but I fear Ana's forehand will be too big. Vera's by definition a bad matchup for Ana, but we'll see. I hope she can get over her big final syndrome and take it home. It would be a somewhat pleasant end to an otherwise dire tournament.

Vera's wins have been more comprehensive over players that were very dangerous
Ana knows how to win big. Ana wins this one.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Would be nice for Vera to finally win something big, but I think and hope Ana will take it.

Vera won the last meeting in 3 setters. I think it will be the same case this time.

Re: IW Final: Ana Ivanovic vs. Vera Zvonareva - WWW???

Here is all Vera Zvonareva tier-II and above careers finals and if You see list of her opponents (all 7 former WTA #1 players) you will see why she still dont have any decent title:

# 2004: Cincinnati (lost to #4 Lindsay Davenport 36 26)
# 2004: Philadelphia (lost to #2 Amelie Mauresmo 63 26 26)
# 2008: Doha (lost to #5 Maria Sharapova 16 62 06)
# 2008: Charleston (lost to #9 Serena Williams 46 63 36)
# 2008: Moscow (lost to #1 Jelena Janković 26 46)
# 2008: Linz (lost to Ana Ivanović 26 16)
# 2008: Doha Championships (lost to Venus Williams 76 06 26)

She won set against Mauresmo, Sharapova, Serena and Venus where all this big tennis names played in very good shape. So theory that unlucky Vera (with opponents selection in finals) has "headcase" or whatever in finals is fake. In sunday she will play once again against former #1 player, but Vera seems that plays right now careers best tennis and Ana Ivanovic careers biggest crisis and slump is probably over, but she is for sure not at her peak. All that give some nice chances Vera to win finally some big title (and 4.5M$ IW two-weekers is really big one).

I'm with Ana of course, but I dont except that this time will be easy like at Linz 5 months ago.

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)

Vera is going down. The only way Russians can win big titles is if her last name is Sharapova or the other player is also Russian, because only one can lose.
