Who is the "FAVORITE" to win

this contest between Serena and Justine. According to Justine, Serena is the favorite. Is she trying to convince herself that by saying this some of the pressure will be taken off of her. Justine knows this is Serena's most vulnerable surface. She knows that this surface gives her the greatest chance of beating Serena. Afterall, it is Justine who is the claycourt specialist, who has grown up on this surface. Justine has beaten Serena twice on this surface. So, clearly Justine would be the favorite to win.

Serena is 33-0 in her last 5 GS events. #1 in the world. And has been untouchable this fortnight. She would be the overwhelming favorite for anyone, I'd say.

Justine can take solace in the fact that she has beaten Lil'Sis before, and as recently as last month. But she knows she's the underdog, and thus is taking the pressure off of herself.

I'm hoping for a highly entertaining match, and may the better player win.

Serena is the favorite every time she steps on the tennis court...actually every time she signs up for an event.

Well, Serena is the clear favourite anyway but if Justine is trying to work that to her favour, then good on her.
