Probably Masha, but you never know what you're going to get with Li.

If GOATNa shows up it could be over in 2 sets for Li. However, if it goes to three sets Maria's mental edge will see her through.

Re: WWW AO SF: Na Li or Maria?

It's 50-50. This is Na's best surface and, if she has a good day, she can beat almost anybody. Maria is stronger mentally, so I'd say Maria in 3 sets or Na in two sets.

Maria Sharapova Na Li Francesca Schiavone Vera Zvonareva Petra Kvitova

Novak Djokovic Roger Federer Tomas Berdych Juan Martin Del Potro Richard Gasquet

Giving the edge to Pova, as she seems on a mission, but wouldn't be surprised to see Na win, either. She is not easily intimidated by any kind of hype background noise.

Re: WWW AO SF: Na Li or Maria?

Maria is the favorite, but I wouldn't be surprised at all if Li Na wins.

I don't want Maria to lose another final

The first determinant will be Maria's serve. We know she can attack Li Na's serve. A big question is how attackable her own serve is going to be. Still on mid-pace hard I think her chances are a tad higher than they would have been on clay.. Maria a slight favourite.

Re: WWW AO SF: Na Li or Maria?

A big matchup this. Li seems to be in very good form, Maria too. Maria will win , probably 2 maybe 3 sets.

Re: WWW AO SF: Na Li or Maria?

This will be a good one. First, I am not a Masha fan. With that said, Masha seems to be in the zone and playing better than she has ever played. However, correct me if I am wrong, she hasn't been tested yet. It seems she has had easy draws. Now, correct me if I am wrong..

I will say this, she is in the zone, can she play in the zone, when playing a top 5 player????
