I'll say Maria in 3, or Serena in 2. If Serena loses at set I think that could be game over, just because it's been so long since Maria has challenged her, that she'd probably collapse due to shock.
If Serena loses a set, she's gonna be extremely mad and you know what's gonna happen.

That's true. She has not done this since so I agree, it was a display of youth in her break through year!
Serena should win this but I think it will be competitive 2 set. Good luck Serena! Win this tourney!

She'll reduce Martha to tears like she did in the Olympic finals?

Maria is certainly playing well but only Williams' fans are saying she is "at her peak".
And you know Serena will be just fine tomorrow.
Who knows, maybe we will get a competitive match.

However, it will be very bad for the WTA if Serena trashes Maria. It's getting kinda ridiculous how easy Rena is beating the others at the minute, and i really really hope we get a positive final with at least 2 close sets, but i highly doubt it.

Serena knows she's embarassed Maria many time already but i think the YEC 2004 will be remembered and she'll want to smash her at this venue as well.

Regrettably Serena 6-3, 6-1
i think it more of the Wimbledon final that anything else, much like Stosur and Vika when they beat Serena comprehensively, she just became more focused when facing them.

Serena is playing around 60% right now, the only chance Sharapova has to win, is if the Serena in the Li match is going to appear. around 20-25%.

I think Sharapova will do much better than she did at the olympics. The match was closer than the 6-0 6-1 scoreline tells us. Sharapova was serving very badly, hitting 2 double faults in 1 game and the wind was a big problem.

Now at the YEC she is serving better and there will be no wind. I expect Serena to win of course, but it wont be as easy as it was at the olympics.
